Breakthrough Photography X4-ND3-72MM overview

  • 1Description

The 72mm X4 Solid Neutral Density 0.9 Filter from Breakthrough Photography is a circular ND filter with a 8x filter factor that provides a 3-stop exposure reduction. Its 0.9 density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. By slowing your exposure time or increasing your aperture, you are able to control depth of field and convey movement more easily. Neutral density filters do not affect the coloration of the image and are ideal for pairing with other filters.

To prevent internal ghosting and reflections, the glass features eight layers of anti-reflection coating. This Multi-Resistant Coating (MRC) also increases the durability of the filter and helps it to stay clean for longer than uncoated filters. The Nano coating provides an additional ninth layer over the front MRC, resulting in an improved beading effect when in contact with water for greater cleaning efficiency.

This X4 ND filter is constructed from Schott B270 glass for increased optical clarity as well as color fidelity and features a thin brass filter ring to minimize the potential for vignetting while enhancing durability and jamming prevention.

    Breakthrough Photography X4-ND3-72MM reviews

    72mm X4 Solid Neutral Density 0.9 Filter (3 Stop) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't beat this one I was a bit skeptical as I've never heard of this company before, but I read many reviews online saying this was the best out there, so I ended up biting the bullet and bought the 3-stop, 6-stop and 10-stop densities. Optical quality - I don't see any loss in sharpness when zoomed in on my Canon 5Ds R files at 100%, very impressive. Coatings - as others have said, the coating quality is a quantum leap versus my other ND filters more expensive than this one. Build quality - you can feel the quality of these filters. Very thin but still has front threads, which is important to me as I stack sometimes. Will probably get their new X4 CPL when it's available on B&H.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As Good As It Gets This filter is very color neutral and an honest 6 stops. It has a low profile rim with a knurled grip. These are all positives, but what sets this filter apart is the craftsmanship with which it is made and the MRC and nano coatings which are simply the best I have worked with. You can literally feel and see the quality of this filter, I do not think you can buy a better ND filter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from True Colors & Solid Build on an ND Filter This ND filter does a great job delivering true colors in long exposure photography. The build is solid and the brass ring provides a great grip for easy application, and removal. It's nice to not struggle when removing this filter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breakthrough Photo ND filter Just purchased a BP 3 stop ND filter. Results appear to be as advertised. Used filter a few times and photos are exactly what I wanted. Effect was excellent and color was natural. Very pleased with results. Craftsmanship is outstanding. I made a good choice,

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BOLLYWOOD filter We are commissioned regularly for filming with BOLLYWOOD and the optical quality glass used with Breakthrough is class-winning design. Clear, crisp and without colour shift. We only use the best optics for our film work. Highly recommended optics

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from If I need a filter I will only buy from Breakthrough I have not noticed any color cast from the filter, just as Breakthrough promised. Also, the brass ring of the filter with the notches cut around the edge makes it so much easier to remove from my lenses. Up until recently I had not used any other manufacturers brands and did not realize the difference that brass and the notches make. The other filter, an aluminum ring with a light texture, was much more difficult to deal with. I only purchased it because Breakthrough did not have an offering for the 2017 Eclipse. I will continue to only buy Breakthrough.
