Hoya 77mm Variable Neutral Density Filter
Key Features
  • Variable 0.45-2.7 Neutral Density Filter
  • Reduce Exposure by 1.5-9 Stops
  • Darkens Entire Image
  • Greater Control Over Exposure Settings
The Hoya 77mm 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.

Hoya A-77VDY Overview

The Hoya 77mm 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.

question

I am looking to purchase a variable ND filter however I am unsure which will be compatible with my lens. I own a Nikon D800 with Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f2.8G ED Lens. Is this product suitable, and if not could you please recommend some options that would be. Thank you, Abby

question

I have a Canon 24-70 f/2.8 lens with a 82mm front thread and a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 lens with a 77mm thread. If I buy this lens with a thread size of 82mm and also buy a 82mm to 77mm stepping ring, will I get more vignetting or other issues on my 77mm threaded lens when using the stepping ring?
Asked by: Russ
Just remember to purchase a 77 to 82mm STEP UP RING. You always want to step up in front of a smaller piece of glass to avoid vignetting. Therefore, purchasing a step up ring from 77 to 82mm will enable you to use the 82mm filter on the 77mm filter threads. If you placed the 77mm filter in front of the 82mm filter threads, you will definitely get vignetting.

question

What lens cap can you use with this? I'm using it with my Canon 25-105mm and the normal lens cap won't work. Thanks!
Asked by: Natasha P.
Unfortunately, I don't the answer for you. I generally use the lens on an as needed basis so I don't leave it on the camera therefore I don't have a lens cap for it.

are images taken with this variable ND filter considerably softer than the same lens/camera without the variable ND filter? (trying to find the best variable nd filter that doesn't lose image sharpness or is it expected to lose image sharpness when using any ND filter)? thank you

question

On a Canon 70-200 2.8 II or 100-400 II, is it possible to attach the hood after installing the filter, or does it stick out too much? Thanks.
Asked by: Syed
No problem having the filter and hood on simultaneously. This filter is probably the thickness of about three credit cards. It's very discreet. The only issue you may have on a 70-200mm is reaching in through the hood to adjust the exposure level on the filter, but that's a very minor inconvenience.PS: This filter is GREAT on prime lenses when shooting outdoors with OCF. The 70-200mm may or may not need this particular filter. Just my $0.02.
