The Vivitar 40.5mm Variable NDX Filter is a solid variable neutral density filter providing a reduction in light by about 1 to 10 stops. The 0.3 to 3.0 (ND2-ND1000) 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. For easier, repeatable control over density settings, the front ring is also visually demarcated with dots that each represent one stop of neutral density.

Vivitar VIV-VNDX-40.5 Reviews
Used it for my Sony A6300 kit lens, it does the job. juts that you cant go higher like 7 or 8 because you would get a vignette-ing on your picture/video. Plus, I love the fact it gives you a carrying case for this filter. good job.
very easy to use and very portable
Adequate but not great
This variable neutral density filter is claimed to provide up to 10 stops of light reduction. In my experience you are lucky to get half of that. Filter works ok if you have a good volume of fast moving water, but using it for anything else is a problem. Unfortunately there is not much selection in this filter size so you're pretty much limited to this filter if you need a 40.5mm. If you have a larger and better quality quality variable neutral density filter using some step up rings is likely a better solution.
Cheapest way to slow down speed.
Worked well for my needs
I purchased this filter for my Sony Nex-5t mirrorless camera. I used this filter to slow the motion of the water at Ramona Falls Oregon last weekend and it worked well, but it did give the X pattern when I adjusted it to it's strongest settings. I didn't have any problem when I used it mid range. For my needs this filter worked out great.
I bought the filter for my Exolens on an iPhone 7 plus. The filter is too deep and creates vignetting. I bought subsequently a 40.5 to 46mm step up adapter and a 46mm ND filter. The adapter flares out enough to eliminate vignetting.
Great for the price
Does what it needs to do.
