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.

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.
