Kodak #96 overview

  • 1Description

The Kodak 3 x 3" Neutral Density (ND) #96 0.90 Optical Gelatin Wratten Filter has several uses and offers the possibility to achieve otherwise unachievable results. ND filters appear grey and reduce the amount of light reaching the film. They have no effect on color balance.

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

ND.3 (exposure adjustment = 1 stop, reduces ISO 1/2)
ND.6 (exposure adjustment = 2 stops, reduces ISO 1/4)
ND.9 (exposure adjustment = 3 stops, reduces ISO 1/8)
ND 1.8 (exposure adjustment = approx. 6 stops, transmits 1% of light,)
ND 3.0 (exposure adjustment = 10 stops, transmits 0.1% of light)
ND 4.0 (exposure adjustment = 13-2/3 stops, transmits 0.01% of light)
ND 6.0 = (exposure adjustment = approx. 20 stops)

Kodak #96 reviews

3 x 3" Neutral Density (ND) #96 0.90 Optical Gelatin Wratten Filter is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good ND solution for Phantom 3 drone camera The price is a little steep, but it's tough to beat the light weight of this ND gel, which is optically good enough to use in front of a camera lens. I use mine with my Phantom 3, which doesn't stress the gimbal, which is finely tuned to the weight of the camera. Most ND filters weigh at least 10 grams, and that will throw a gimbal out of whack over time. I was able to cut 4 filters from the size provided, so go in on these with your Phantom-flying friends to bring the cost down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ND filter Neutral Density filters are used to slow down the shutter speed (allow longer exposures) without affecting colors. During the day, even with the lowest ISO available and the higher f/ stop it is not possible to slow down the shutter speed much lower than 1/16 sec. For waterfalls, a velvety effect frequently requires 1/2 to a full second (obviously a tripod is a must!) In my experience, a 3 stop filter (0.9) will very frequently be sufficient to achieve this while still allowing focus and light metering through the lens. The Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM lens can't use a screw on filter at the end of the lens (bulging). It is possible to get a special adaptor to attach to the lens hood but these require 150mm square filters (expensive). With this lens, it is possible to add a rear insert-type gelatin filter. This is a much cheaper solution. This 3 X 3 ND 0.9 can be easily cut into 4 mini filters measuring 3 X 3 cm (size needed for this lens). These filters are thin enough that one can easily slide 2 filters (one on top of the other) in the special slot. (It is also essential to cut off 2 adjacent corners of these 3 X 3 cm filters for a perfect fit.) A 0.9 ND cuts down 3 steps. By using 2 filters one can achieve a 1.8 ND (6 stops). Although Canon mention that the rear element of the lens could touch the filter when zoomed at 11 mm, this is not the case on my lens. I can envision that if the filters are cut to large, they could possibly budge forward and touch.
