Hoya A-67VDY overview

  • 1Description

The Hoya 67mm Variable Neutral Density Filter is a solid variable neutral density filter providing an exposure reduction of about 1.5 to 9 stops. The 0.45 to 2.7 density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than would normally be required. The degree of density is easily controlled by rotating the front filter ring, helping you to predetermine 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.

This filter is constructed from optical glass to maintain image clarity and is set within a slim profile aluminum ring, which helps to reduce the likelihood of vignetting when used on wide-angle lenses, and does not feature front threads.

    Hoya A-67VDY reviews

    67mm Variable Neutral Density Filter is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very unsatisfactory I am sorry to say that, after testing it, I have to say that I will not recommend at all this product as it is nearly useless because in most circumstances has a very noticeable vignetting in a cross pattern that is not possible to be corrected by photoshop. If you are looking for neutral density filters, buy a couple or three fixed density filters and do not waste any money on this. The attached sample picture is the worst situation just to see clearly the effect, and vignetting is reduced increasing focal length and reducing aperture of zoom.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised I bought this filter to use for long exposure photography with my Nikon D600 as well as being able to use wide apertures in bright sunlight. As long as you stay within the marked limits of the filter, it works as advertised and produces great results. Colors seem to be unaffected, but some minor post-processing adjustment may be necessary to get the photo to where you want it to be. I expect this is normal. What's great about it is that it is easy to use. One short twist and you go from light to dark or dark to light. There is no need to remove the filter to re-adjust focus the way you'd have to do with darker filters. Just twist it to its lightest setting and you can see through the viewfinder. (Maybe a different story if you're trying to use live view)The clarity is very nice and photos come out sharp. This is nearly a perfect and very convenient product EXCEPT.... there may be some cases at its darkest setting where you may see some uneven exposure or vignetting. Instead of the vignetting being visible in the corners, it may appear in the top and bottom middle of the frame. You probably won't notice it at all if you're shooting longer exposures in less available light (I didn't), but if you're using it at its darkest setting in bright daylight, you might see it. To be honest this filter is not dark enough to use for long exposures in bright daylight, so this may not be much of an issue. For that you'd have to go with a 1.2 or darker filter anyway. When using this filter make sure to always stay within the marked limits. If you try to go beyond that at the darkest setting, you're going to see a giant, dark X across your photo. There's nothing to stop you from twisting the filter 360 degrees, so just pay attention to the markings as you're rotating it. Overall I would recommend this product for its clarity, ease of use, convenience and construction. It produces great results when used correctly. If you want to do long exposures in bright sunlight or directly into the sunset, you'll need something stronger than this. Otherwise it will work well even during the day with shorter exposures. Images below taken with a Nikon D600, 28mm f/1.8G and the Hoya variable density filter. Vignetting you see in corners was added in post and is not a result of using the filter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality materials. The filter is easily installed and unlike other filters, it doesn't wobble after it is installed. It turns easily and slides without a hitch.The glass is of high quality and colors don't suffer when using it. It has several markings on the side that show you how much darkening is happening and how much more can you go.I've read reviews where people comment on how you get dark lines after you've set the filter to the lightest setting. This is not a quality issue but a side product of the fabrication method. While you won't use this when you are shooting, it goes away by turning the filter ever so slightly so it is not a big deal at all. The box clearly states that these artifacts appear: When using the filter near or at MIN. a cross-like dark pattern will appear across the image and cannot be eliminated. This is a property of the structure of the filter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No threading on outside edge I think this is a very high quality product. What drives me nuts is that there are no threads on the outside of the filter. I can't use stack caps and the lens cover won't stay on with this filter on the lens. I have to remove the filter to put the camera away and I have a special pouch to carry this filter. If that won't irritate you then it is highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Perfectly. It's nice and clear, and I can't really see any distortion (if there really is any). The construction feels solid, and the ring is smooth. I'm using it on a Sigma Art 35mm 1.4 with my A7s, so, without it, I really can't shoot SLOG2 during the day. There is a big vignetting X at its darkest setting, like some reviewers have said, but I've never needed to go that dark anyhow.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Increased exposure setting flexibility Sometimes you just have to have a certain ISO, a certain shutter speed and a certain f/stop and you can't have them without a variable neutral density filter. That's not to say the VNDF is always the solution, but it's an important piece of gear to have on hand when it does make sense to use certain exposure settings. Caveat: like so many filters, any other piece of glass between your lens and your subject is going to degrade your image resolution and this one will, too, though only very minimally.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT CONTROL If you have bright light conditions or may it just be the middle of the day this filter gets any job done!. I love the ability it gives you to control light and your exposure. Originally I was just going to just going to go with a 10 stop and call it a day but this was much better as your not always going to need a long exposure. This is a must have in your arsenal of filters as you never know what the day of shooting pictures in the day holds.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great filter. Amazingly sharp , superior quality , I used Tiffen and Heliopan and I trust this filter more due to the outcome and the quality of the pictures.
