Hoya 82mm Solas Variable NDX 0.4 to 2.6 Filter (1.3 to 8.7 Stops)

BH #HOSVND82 • MFR #XSL-82VDY
Hoya
Key Features
  • Variable 0.4-2.6 Neutral Density Filter
  • Reduce Exposure by 1.3-8.7 Stops
  • Neutral Results, Visible, & IR Spectrums
  • Darkens Entire Image
The Hoya 82mm Solas Variable NDX 0.4 to 2.6 Filter is a solid variable neutral density filter that provides an exposure reduction of 1.3 to 8.7 stops. The 0.4 to 2.6 density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. The degree of density is easily controlled by rotating the front filter ring, helping you to predetermine the additional exposure length required. By slowing your exposure time or increasing your aperture, you are able to control depth of field and convey movement more easily. For easier, repeatable control over density settings, the front ring is also visually demarcated with lines that represent different density values.

Hoya XSL-82VDY Overview

The Hoya 82mm Solas Variable NDX 0.4 to 2.6 Filter is a solid variable neutral density filter that provides an exposure reduction of 1.3 to 8.7 stops. The 0.4 to 2.6 density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. The degree of density is easily controlled by rotating the front filter ring, helping you to predetermine the additional exposure length required.

This Hoya variable neutral density filter is constructed from optical glass for clarity and color fidelity. To prevent internal ghosting and reflections, each glass surface includes 10 layers of anti-reflection coating. These coatings also provide further protection to the filter substrate and helps it to stay clean for longer than with uncoated filters. The design of this filter has also been optimized for use with digital sensors and to promote nearly flat attenuation of visible light and infrared light. Due to imaging sensors' greater susceptibility to infrared light, compared to traditional film, color casts can occur when photographing darker subjects that require increased exposure times.

Variable neutral density filter allows you to dial in differing amounts of density from scene to scene.
0.4 to 2.6 density filter darkens the image, allowing you to photograph with a longer shutter speed or wider aperture than normally required.
Providing a reduction of 1.3 to 8.7 stops, this filter allows you to control depth of field and convey movement more easily.
Attenuates infrared light to maintain color neutrality and suppress color casts due to increased exposure lengths.
Offers increased flexibility to use specific ISO settings or ISO films under bright ambient light.
Provides increased exposure flexibility while using cinema or video cameras within a designated film frame rate.
Multicoated to prevent internal ghosting and reflections.
Constructed from optical glass for clarity and color fidelity.
Durable and lightweight aluminum-alloy filter ring.
Front filter ring with 82mm filter threads allows for use with other filters.
Plastic filter case for storage and transport.
