Breakthrough Photography X2-ND3-62MM overview

  • 1Description

Boasting a slim form factor with a thickness of only 3.5mm, the 62mm X2 Solid Neutral Density 0.9 Filter from Breakthrough Photography is a circular ND filter with an 8x filter factor that darkens the entire image by 3 stops. This reduction in exposure allows you to use slower shutter speeds to express movement in your photos, and achieve wide apertures even in bright lighting situations.

Made of H-K9L optical glass, the X2 ND is designed for color neutral performance with no added tint or cast, and avoids vignetting thanks to its slim profile. Two types of coating are deployed: MRC8 which helps eliminate glare and lends the glass better scratch resistance and durability, and a nano layer that repels water and small particles for easier cleaning. A knurled aluminum frame completes the filter, featuring 62mm front filter threads for stacking and weather sealing that allows for outdoor use even in harsh conditions.

  • 62mm neutral density filter darkens entire image by 3 stops, allowing for slower shutter speeds and wider apertures than normal
  • Engineered for color neutral performance that avoids introducing tints or color casts
  • Slim profile with 3.5mm thickness, no problems with vignetting even with wider lenses
  • MRC8 coating for lowered reflections and scratch resistance, and nano coating that repels water and dirt for easy cleaning
  • H-K9L glass and aluminum frame with knurled sides, weather-sealed for safe outdoor use
  • 62mm front filter thread allows for stacking with other filters

    Breakthrough Photography X2-ND3-62MM reviews

    62mm X2 Solid Neutral Density 0.9 Filter (3-Stop) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super sharp, very color neutral. I've been using my Lee Big Stopper for about three years, and when I got this X2 ND I was pretty blown away by the sharpness performance, especially on the corners. The corner sharpness on this filter is very good, or maybe my Lee is really soft? Not sure which, but my images are tack sharp on the corners with this one. I got this primarily because it was advertised as having better color neutrality, and it does. I would recommend this to landscape photographers shooting wide angle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from exceeded my expectations Breakthrough Photography's X2 6-stop neutral density filter is a great product which exceeded my expectations. Previous experiences with B+W ND filters were poor due to a pretty bad color cast and vignetting. That being said, Breakthrough's X2 filter is excellent, both in terms of build (doesn't get stuck on my step-up ring or lens like B+W filters have in the past) and image quality, with no noticeable color cast or vignetting.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from its ok There is a lot of hype regarding this filter, I wanted the X3 but the company convinced me to buy this, mostly I think because the X3 were out of stock and they had not sold to many of these, as the letter stated I am an early adopter of this product... I can only say this, my lee system is a much better solution for my needs than this filter, it works fine for what it is but can not touch the lee system as far as I am concerned, perhaps the X3 system is better? I can't say, but I can say I will not be buying another one of these, money aside, my pictures deserve the best I can give them, this is not it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ND for the Price Breakthrough Photography is not widely know. After seeing comparisons of these filters to companies such as Singh Ray and standing very similar I decided to go with BP. These filters are a much better price and provide great optical quality. From initial testing in the real world I can say the filter adds little to no color cast and vignetting. The images remained very sharp when shooting with a wide angle lens. The 25 year warranty makes me feel better about wiping the glass of from sea spray or dust knowing if it goes bad they will send me a new one. Haven't needed to send it back so I can't say how easy that process is. The build quality is great. Filter threads don't seem to bind and the filter is very slim, I have no problems putting this filter on when using a lens good. Worth every penny, going to buy the X4 10 stop after this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than my B+W My beloved B+W fell into the ocean recently and upon getting a new ND I decided to try this one out. This ND is very sharp and it doesn't have the slight yellow color shift that my B+W had. The build quality on this filter is excellent too. You can tell this company really put some effort into the thing. The surface of the glass also has some kind of coating that makes it so that water rolls off, which my B+W didn't have.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well Made These Filters are well made, good finish, and do the job. I use these for Time-lapse video and they fit my needs for capturing sunsets with my Sony A7SII.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Filter I've Owned I ordered the 6 stop and the 3 stop filter... I had another top brand of variable ND filter... the difference was night and day. These filters are top notch. Right from the boxes and packaging to the feel and build of the filters. They feel amazing. SUPER thin which is great. I can stack the 6 & 3 stop filter to achieve a 9 stop filter, which was my goal for flexibility. Together these filters are still thinner then the other brand of variable ND filter and the picture quality is FAR superior to the previous filter I had. There is a slight coolish color shift over the entire image but NOTHING to worry about as it's a very easy correction in Lightroom. An absolutely great purchase!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Customer Service Can't speak highly enough about Breakthrough Photography's customer service. Graham chatted with me for about 30 mins, answered all my questions and helped honor my 300 day return policy. Very professional interaction and is a big reason for why I will continue to purchase from them. It also helps that they are the most neutral color cast filters I have worked with to date. All in all, very happy with the product and support.
