The Schneider Neutral Density (ND) 1.8 Filter (4 x 4") has several uses and offers the possibility to achieve otherwise unachievable results. They enable the shooter to adjust exposure without affecting color balance. ND filters appear gray and reduce the amount of light reaching the film. 

Determining which neutral density filter yields ideal results for any given lighting situation takes knowledge, experience and a collection of such filters. Speaking generally, the 2-stop value (ND 0.6) effectively compensates average situations.

Note: Neutral Density Filters are available in grades 1,2,3 and 4 stops to suit individual needs

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
High-Quality Construction
Schneider filters feature crystal clear, water-white optical glass, protected against edge-chipping and delamination by Schneider's unique Edge Seal, which also significantly reduces edge reflections and flare

Schneider Quality Control

Schneider filters are ground and polished to a precise flatness and plane parallelism
Because all Schneider filters are designed and manufactured with the highest possible degree of consistency, you can swap like filters mid-shoot with no discernible variation in color or effect

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very very red cast This filter gave such a strong rose colored hue, that the shots were very difficult to use afterwards. May be somewhat fixable in post, unlike the HiTech ProStop 10, which was totally unusable. Otherwise, the shots came out sharp and, with some tweaking of white balance/hue, this may be fixable. I just got the Lee Big Stopper (which is nearly flawless), so I didn't even attempt to fix shots taken with this.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great Filter NOT Neutral The rose tint on this filter is so strong that white balancing doesn't even help. Very disappointed that this product is not at all what what I expected.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Sony NEX-FS100 The Schneider Neutral Density (ND) 1.8 Filter is perfect for use on the Sony NEX-FS100 as the camera doesn't have a built in ND wheel.
