Hoya NDx400 Overview

  • 1Description

The Hoya 72mm 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

    72mm NDx400 HMC ND 2.7 Filter (9-Stop) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Quite Sure What to Say I have always had Hoya filters and have never had a problem with any Hoya products but upon receiving this item in the mail I found the filter to be quite dusty upon opening the package. But much more to my horror when I used a Nikon lens cleaning wipe on the filter the solution on the wipe cut right through the coating on the filter and marred it. It's completely ruined and I never got the chance to even attach it to my lens let alone to even use it once. Maybe I shouldn't have used the cleaning wipe but i've used those wipes on other hoya filters without any problem. So I don't know quite what to say. I hate to give the product a 1 star, but can only give that rating based on my experience.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Filter I've had this filter for 5 months now and I use it all the time mostly for smoothing out water (lakes, rivers) or blurring out clouds. Also used it for blurring out foregrounds like grass fields. This is the first dark ND filter I've used and I really could not imagine not have a dark ND filter like this - I use it so much. Results are great - no complaints about optical quality and no issues with color cast. Using this one on my Fuji X-T1 mostly with the 10-24 lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well! This works well to use with motion effects in still photography. I use it at the seashore to make the motion of the tide and surf more fluid. It is 9 stops, so you need to calculate the effect before using and not just start shooting with it, unless, of course, you are just experimenting to see what happens. I downrated to 4 stars only because I don't like screw-i filters, but I suppose that's not the fault of just Hoya. In the 21st century, it seems that there's a better design to fasted a filter in front of a lens without having to fumble with the screw thread for 10 minutes. Magnetic? There's a thought!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent image quality Love it. I've used the uncoated cokin sqaures and what a differece. Thanks to the coating, there is no strange flares. And at that extreme density, there was no color shift. Like the plastic box that came with it too, nice and slim.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Black Glass This is the first extreme ND filter that I have used so I do not have a comparative point of reference. I however have found this filter to work very well. There is almost no color cast and the build quality is very good. The ring is made of brass and the glass is substantial. You just feel this thing will last forever. I did notice that it was very difficult to clean. I finally got it done with the same substance I use to clean the sensor. For me day time shoots are 30 seconds at most with the majority of them being around 8 to 15 seconds.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome filter and does the job This has been my go to filter for several years now. I had been using the same filter on my DX lens and just made the switch to a Nikon FX set up. The first thing I needed to do was grab this filter and that's what I did. I do a lot of landscape/seascape photography and this thing does a great job at allowing me to get slow shutter speeds in low and high light. Definitely a product I would reccomend if in the market for a solid ND filter. Easy on and off in the field too.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from STOP DOWN! I finally broke down and bought my first Black Glass. I occasionally use ND filters and love Long Exposure Night Photography and always wanted to try some longer exposures during the day. This works great! Not too dark, not to light! Great for water shots and making objects disappear.Quality is Hoya and only a little colour-cast, which is easily adjusted out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for controlling water motion. Outstanding for increasing exposure times to produce a flowing image of water when shooting rivers, rapids, waterfalls, and even wave motion on lakes and oceans - all without blowing out the exposure of the water (white) area. Also improves color saturation when vegetation is included in deep woods stream situations.
