About this item:
- Heliopans world-renowned Solid Neutral Density Filter appears gray and reduces the amount of light reaching either the digital sensor or film plane. This darkening of the image allows for a longer exposure without offsetting overall color and tonality. Wider apertures and a shorter depth of field make room for optimal foreground and background separation. The Neutral Density filter also performs extremely well under bright light conditions. This enables the user flexibility to maintain constant aperture at slower shutter speeds, making it ideal for capturing movement. Filter Factor: 0.3 To 1.8 (1 To 6 Stops)
- Our standard 8-Layer Multi-Coating minimizes reflections and does not interfere with the resolution of your camera optics
- Our precision cut brass ring ensures a secure and sturdy fit, are more resistant to side impacts, and less likely to bind or cross-thread after extended use
- We do not source any materials outside of Germany in the assembly and construction of our products. All raw materials are prepared and hand-assembled in our factory and do not leave our facility until they are completely inspected by our quality technicians
The Heliopan 86mm Neutral Density 8x (0.9) Neutral Density Filter appears gray and reduces the amount of light reaching either the digital sensor or film plane. It has no effect on color balance and permits you to capture images such as the rushing movement of a babbling brook or the swirling chaos of city traffic. Since wider apertures are possible, your depth of field will also be minimized as a result when shooting portraits you will be able to achieve more separation between your foreground and background. This filter permits you to shoot your image under bright light conditions at the same aperture but at a slower shutter speed.
