Hoya NDx400 overview

  • 1Description

The Hoya 58mm NDx400 HMC Filter is a solid neutral density filter that enables a 9-stop increase in exposure length. The optical 2.7 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.

This filter features a three-layer HMC multi-coating, which provides 98-99% light transmission and helps to reduce internal flare and reflections. It is constructed from high-quality optical glass for notable image clarity and is set in a durable aluminum filter ring.

2.7 ND filter darkens the image, allowing you to photograph with a slower shutter speed or wider aperture than normally required.
Providing a 9-stop reduction, this filter allows you to control depth of field and convey movement more easily.
Three-layer multi coating helps to minimize internal reflections and ghosting and maintain an overall neutral color balance.

    Hoya NDx400 reviews

    58mm NDx400 HMC Filter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing I purchased this filter to capture blurred motion shots, particularly of moving water. While my camera would take acceptable shots under very low light conditions, it was impossible to capture any images in full, or even partial sun. This filter has performed flawlessly, and I now have no difficulty capturing some very beautiful images during even the brightest days. The product is well made, and has met all of my expectations. As an aside - the customer service at B&H was outstanding.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbeatable for the price No nasty orange tones like with the B&W 10 stop. Great value for the money.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A jewel when shooting infrared Combined with an infrared filter as the R72 or even standalone, you will be impressed about the fascinating results you can get. A fantastic and surreal world is waiting for you!.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great filter for sunny days Went shooting the day after I received this lens. Found a nice spot on the South Fork of the Snoqualmie River near Twin Falls State Park (WA) and set up for the attached photo, and many others. Because it is a ND400, or 8.6 stop drop, one needs a lot of light to get a shot. This was a 30s exposure, for example, in the afternoon sun. Optics are clear and the ND effect is consistent across the glass. Recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good fun This lens is intimidating. It is highly specialized, geared to the artistic endeavors, but the good news is that B&H sold it to me anyway! This lens allows you to experiment with light and images to create beautiful photos. It is true that this will take experimenting and less than optimal results but that's part of the fun. Luckily, digital photography allows for no cost experimentation. Once you figure out how to use the lens, it opens up a wide range of spectacular photos. You will need a tripod, however. I also use a remote shutter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing results I used this product to take some waterfall pictures. I used it to slow down my shutter speed to show some movement in the water. The smoothness of the water looked amazing and the sharpness of the rocks and trees were nothing short of spectacular. I would buy this product over and over again. Worth every penny.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crazy, but awesome! This thing is totally crazy! If you use a viewfinder, it seriously helps to get a dark cloth to cover the camera with so you can see. This has the added advantage of getting strange looks from everyone on the street. If you're the kind of person who needs a nine-stop ND filter, you're probably the kind of person who secretly enjoys funny looks from people. =) I've been using this on slow film (ISO 50) in daylight, to get images that suffer from awful reciprocity failure and have a nice 1870s look to them. It's also great for time lapse videos, I can take eight-second exposures at one frame every ten seconds and my time lapses look much more fluid and smooth than they would with a 1/60 second exposure every ten seconds. I have no reservations in recommending this to someone who can actually use it, but be aware that it really does take the right situation for it to be useful.
