Kodak #96 overview

  • 1Description

The Kodak 4 x 4" Neutral Density (ND) #96 2.0 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.

Most Kodak gelatin filters are available in 3 x 3" (75 x 75mm), 4 x 4" (100 x 100mm), 6 x 6" (150 x 150mm), 14 x 18" (350 x 450mm) and 4 x 12" (10.2 x 30.5cm).

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

Kodak #96 reviews

4 x 4" Neutral Density (ND) #96 2.0 Optical Gelatin Wratten Filter is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible filter! I tested this filter today in comparison to a Lee ND, and confirmed what I've been seeing- it's hazy. My images look like they were shot with one of those milky 80s glamor filters. Ok, not that bad, but the Lee is very clear by comparison. Bright areas have a milky glow. Fine details are muddy. Specular highlights (sun reflect on car) case big blooming rainbow stars. And the color balance is very very warm- I set PS Raw to 3800K to get a natural daylight look. And for this price? Maybe I just got a bad sample- please reply if you got a clear filter. It's a shame because this is the only gel ND that is available in these high densities. But I think even 2 Lee 0.9 are more clear than this one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from so so i love it but it is very thin like paper and is not suited for salty humid environments. is very dark but fragile and hard to handle because it is so thin. and if you use more then 3 at a time you cant ever see out on the aperture which would be needed in a desert or on a beach.
