Vivitar VIV-VNDX-49 overview

  • 1Description

The Vivitar 49mm 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.

Variable neutral density filter allows you to dial in differing amounts of density scene to scene.
0.3 to 3.0 ND filter darkens the image, allowing you to photograph with a longer shutter speed or wider aperture than normally required.
Providing a reduction in light by about 1 to 10 stops, this filter allows you to control depth of field and convey movement more easily.

Vivitar VIV-VNDX-49 reviews

49mm Variable NDX Filter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Be careful using these with a mirrorless camera I bought this for a Fuji X-trans camera... It was a total failure! Why? Huge EV variations across the picture! Now Vari. filters have been documented about this all over the Internet -- It's a failure or success depending upon camera. I tired the same filter on my a6000 Sony, and it worked with only a small amount of variation -- Acceptable amount -- But I would say, if you want no variation of EV, use a fixed ND filter, not a Vari..... This is a relatively cheap Vari - some others in the $150 range -- I doubt they would perform any better -- The issue is how cross-polarization interfaces with the specific sensor you are using.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good VND This VND is good. The price is low, but the VND is not cheap. I use this on a Minolta AF 35-70 (mini-beercan) lens and have no complaints about the quality of image. Having the ability to adjust between 1-10 stops allows this to be used in almost any light. I look forward to using this VND more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Helpful. I use this with my Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 Lens and it just works flawlessly. I get just the shots I need with this filter. I would highly recommend this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 49mm Variable NDX Filter by Vivitar is excellent This filter is great for taking long exposures during daytime. Water in the ocean or a stream or river can have a surrealistic look when using a long exposure. The price was a good deal also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good ND for all around uses.. Good ND for all around uses as long as you are aware with the line between the max and min, there's like half clear half dark exposure (separation between the two).. minimm or no color cast, good contrast..
