Kenko Variable Digital Multi Coated NDX Camera Lens Filter
Kenko’s uniquely designed variable neutral density filter provides the equivalent brightness range of ND 2.5 to ND 1,000. (practical use being up to ND450).
The singular versatility of the Variable NDX filter not only replaces a whole set of stacking neutral density filters it also removes vignetting which may be caused by using multiple filters.
DMC - Digital Multi-Coated
Digital multi-coated filters greatly reduce the appearance of lens flare and ghosting caused by reflections.
For Longer Exposures
Without changing the aperture, the Variable NDX filter allows the freedom to change the shutter speed according to the effect desired. For example, without adjusting the aperture, the same 1/60 scene can be taken using the Variable NDX filter with shutter speeds from 1/20 to 6 seconds, with just a turn of the outer filter ring.
The problem of diffraction is eliminated by being able to work with a slow shutter speed.
For Wider Apertures
With the Variable NDX filter, the shutter speed remains constant for a wide aperture, easily creating a blurred background effect.
Prevents Overexposure / Highlight Clipping
Even with a shutter speed of 1/8000 seconds, a large aperture of F1.4 or F1.2 can cause overexposure / highlight clipping. With the Variable NDX filter, this overexposure is eliminated.
For HDSLR MOVIES
For HD video-enabled cameras, use the Variable NDX filter to easily adjust light control and shutter speed. The Variable NDX filter makes it simple to produce blurred background effects, simulate a night scene or create manual fade in / fade out effects. It is also perfect for use in bright locations such as beach or snow scenes and cityscapes.
Easy to Operate / Easy Framing / Easy Focus
With a tripod mounted camera, use the brightest setting for framing and focus and then increase the density to your desired level by simply turning the outer filter ring.
1. Framing and Focus
2. Turn the outer Ring
3. Adjust the Aperture and Shutter Speed
