Heliopan 77mm Variable Gray ND Filter
Key Features
  • 0.3-1.8 Variable Neutral Density Filter
  • Increase Exposure by 1 to 6 Stops
  • Brass Ring Construction
  • High Quality Schott Glass
The Heliopan 77mm Variable Gray ND Filter is a solid variable neutral density filter providing a reduction of about 1 to 6 stops. The 0.3 to 1.8 density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. The degree of density is easily controlled by rotating the front filter ring, allowing you to previsualize the additional exposure length required. By slowing your exposure time or increasing your aperture, you are able to control depth of field and convey movement more easily. Neutral density filters do not affect the coloration of the image.

Heliopan Variable Gray ND Reviews

A well made and versatile ND solution

If you don't want to get ND filters in an array of gradients, this well-made but expensive Heliopan (despite the advice of those who don't like variables) may well satisfy your needs. Especially if you own Canon RF lenses, combining this 82mm ND with a 77-82 step-up ring (#130) may be just the trick.

After renting one of these a few times for video shoots, I decided to bite the bullet and buy one. I use it on my Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8 II lens and that allows me to shoot at wide apertures even in daylight conditions so I can get the selective focus desired. Since it is a variable ND filter you can quickly adjust from direct sun to shade or clouds without having to stop and attach a different filter. Is it the highest quality glass out there? I suspect it's not, but I see no significant loss in image quality and seems well-built for extensive usage. For me, it's a way more desirable option than fumbling with a set of individual ND filters.

BEAUTIFUL Variable filter

I was hesitant to drop the kind of $ on this with some competitors being much more affordable. BUT, I will say it’s beyond easy to attach to the lens and the ease of use is like nothing I expected. It has already been such a time saver and I wish I had bought it sooner.

so nice to carry around one ND filter

I use this on my Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 and 16-35mm f/4 VR (although dont try to use it at wider than 35mm as it will give you an X darkness effect over the image. Otherwise a great product!

Hace aos entend la famosa frase: el tonto compra dos veces... y tambin me di cuenta del porqu a veces la calidad cuesta bastante. Este filtro VND de Heliopan incluso es el doble de caro que los filtros VND de Moment (y tienen una excelente calidad de construccin y filtracin), no obstante, Heliopan est en otra liga, mucho ms profesional. Pagar por uno de los filtros ms caros del Mercado vali cada dlar.

question

Hello, will this ND filter setup work with a Leica R lens? if so, which ones? I have a 50mm f2 Summicron, & a 24mm Elmarit f2.8. I need an ND filter that will work with both of these. Thanks very much!Julian Wayser
Asked by: Anonymous
There are many versions of the Leica 50mm f/2 Summicron-R lens. Early versions (1964-1976 black; 1964-1966 chrome) were a Series VI + 14160 (Series VI - E44 filter adapter) and later II models (1976-2009 black) are Internal thread for screw-in type filters E 55 size with a Built-in, telescopic hood. The 24mm f/2.8 Elmarit-R was a Series 8 and our records show some may have been an E60. 72mm to Series 7 Filter Adapter B&H # LEARS77282mm to Series 8 Filter Adapter B&H # LEARS88255mm NDs http://bhpho.to/1m7oEIA

I was gnderin what is the function of two screws that are on the filter? I've realized the range was limited and I thought something was off. Then I unscrewed them and having the ability to turn the top glass 360 degrees, now I have full range of Nd, and it saved my life. I figured the glasses are not detachable. So, now I am confused about the function of those screws. They put hard stops for sure but those hard stops were limiting the actual range of the filter. Either mine was a faulty one, or there is something else.
Asked by: Burak
The installed screw along the filter ring are prevent the filter from being adjusted past the highest density, which would cause an X shaped pattern to appear in your frame.

Sorry, we do not have the actual weight on record and we cannot weigh it. I would subtract a few ounces to get at the weight you need to know.

question

What are the meaning of the numbers from 1 to 12 on the filter? Can I use it to adjust an exact ND stop like ND8 or ND16?
Asked by: Anonymous
The 1-12 scale is a half-stop scale that allows you to more precisely set the filter to 0.3 (1-stop) through 1.8 (6 stop) increments, as well as halfway in between any of those stops. It is not exactly related to ND8 or ND16 stops as those would be 0.9 (3-stops) and 1.2 (4-stops), though you could use this 1-12 scale to set those at numbers 6 and 8.
