Vivitar 40.5mm Variable NDX Filter
Key Features
  • 0.3-3.0 Variable Neutral Density Filter
  • Increase Exposure Length by 1-10 Stops
  • Greater Control Over Exposure Settings
  • Optical Glass Construction
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.

question

does this 40.5mm variable ndx filter have screw threads on the outside to accommodate a metal screw-in lens hood?
Asked by: Chester
The Vivitar 40.5mm Variable NDX Filter has 40.5mm front threads.Note it might be tough to use a threaded lens cap. The filter rotates so you need to hold it just so it does not when you try to screw in the lens cap.

I received this for my Sony 55mm lens and it does great however my lens cap doesn’t seem to fit the filter. Where can I get a cap that fits?

question

I bought this filter for my new Sony AX-53 after viewing the footage, I see a distinct pink cast. Thinking I may have an incorrect setting, I set the filter/protector option to ON.I shot more footage and there was not difference with the filter/protector setting on or off. I still have the pink tint. My video footage was taken in bright sunlight. It appears that I can remove the tint in post but I'd rather not have to do that. Am I missing something? Thank you.
Asked by: Bill
It could be a setting in the camera itself. The AX53 has different picture effects you may want to change. It also could be a white balance setting that is causing a pink cast. If you are still facing issues feel free to email us directly at [email protected] and we can help you further trouble shoot your camera.
