The Hoya 58mm Neutral Density (NDX8) 0.9 Filter has several uses and offers the possibility to achieve otherwise unachievable results. ND filters appear gray and reduce the amount of light reaching the film. They have no effect on color balance.

Multi-coated to minimize reflection at the filter surfaces which reduces flare and ghosting.

Neutral Density filters have four main uses

To enable slow shutter speeds to be used, especially with high speed films, to record movement in subjects such as waterfalls, clouds, or cars
To decrease depth of field by allowing wider apertures to be used, which helps separate subjects from their background
To decrease the effective ISO of high speed film (above ISO 400) and allow it to be used outdoors in bright situations
To allow cine and video cameras (which have fixed shutter speeds) to film subjects such as snow, sand or other bright scenes which could cause overexposure

Neutral Density Factors

2x = ND.3 (exposure adjustment = 1 stop, reduces ISO 1/2)
4x = ND.6 (exposure adjustment = 2 stops, reduces ISO 1/4)
8x = ND.9 (exposure adjustment = 3 stops, reduces ISO 1/8)
As one of the premier filter manufacturers, Hoya filters continue to made from quality glass assuring the photographer clear, sharp and accurate images
Hoya filters consistently provide even color all the way through the filter; All surfaces are ground and polished to specific thickness and tolerances

58mm Neutral Density (NDX8) 0.9 Filter is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why spend more money on the B&W version? This ND filter is excellent if you use flash at all in outdoor daylight and use fast lenses or need a narrow DOF. It basically reduces the ambient by 3 stops (think max flash syn speed of 1/250 brought up to 1/2000) allowing you to shoot at say F2.0 to get a narrow DOF in day light or during the 2 hour window known as the golden hour without any trouble. It's build quality and optical quality is excellent. I use it on my 85 1.8 and notice no difference in image quality nor any color casts when using this excellent ND filter. I give it a 5/5 as for the price it can not be beaten and I doubt the B&W version is even better yet it costs way more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for videography When shooting video on DSLR's you can run into problems when trying to achieve a great DOF with a fast lens in a bright environment (ie. outdoors, full sunlight, heavy lighting etc) A great way to be able to stop your camera down, shoot wide open and still not overexpose is to use a ND filter. I found this filter to be good for my 50mm Canon lens, it does the job and I am quite pleased. Its not the best quality ND out on the market but far from the worst.At times it can be a bit inconsistent but I find that 95% of the time it gets the job done and allows for me to shoot wide open in those situations where otherwise would be impossible to achieve correct exposure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent filter for longer exposures This filter has allowed me to increase the exposure time of my shots to create new dramatic effects in well lit environments. I used it for the first time at a local beach at sunrise to capture the shore and skyline. It helped create a misty water look as well as capturing a more even and fuller color across the whole shot.The only down side I have noticed is that it does produce a little more magenta in the final product on longer exposures. This can be corrected in post.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Accessory I use a Mamiya 645 Pro-TL for the majority of my engagement and portrait work, and predominately shoot outdoors under an angry Texas sun. I'm limited to a top shutter speed of 1/1000, which would be a problem when shooting wide-open with an 80mm 1.9 or 2.8 lens, however, this filter fixes the would-be problem by reducing the amount of light roped in by big aperture (for medium-format) lenses. It's a must-have for other photographers in the same boat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful 4 1/2 stars. Works well and is of quality construction. Biggest use would be for very bright light to use wide apertures but not dark enough for very long exposures. Good buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Daylight long exposures This is just the thing to create long exposures in any conditions. For some users it may be a little too dark, a lesser ND rating may be in order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is how you get creamy moving water. Combine this with a low ISO and small aperture and get long daylight exposures to get those misty smooth waterfalls, oceans, lakes, etc. Someday I hope to try looong daylight exposures, where people disappear from a busy city street. Might need 2 of these to do that. Perfect compromise between quality and price: medium price for high quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GOOD FILTER I GOT THIS FOR THE UPCOMING SOLAR ECLIPSE AUG 21 2017. IT JUST DOES THE JOB ON THE BRIGHT SUN, CLEAR DAY, WITH MY CANON DIGITAL REBEL XTi 75 TO 300 MM CANON LENS AT 300 MM, F45, 1/4000 SEC, ISO 100. I WAS GUESSING AT THE ND8. AS THE MOON COVERS MORE OF THE SUN IT WILL WORK OK. I LIKE THAT BOTH SIDES OF THE GLASS ARE COATED.
