DESCRIPTION

By blocking light entering your camera, our ND8 Filter allows you to use longer shutter speeds for long exposure and motion blur effects in low light.

With less light entering your camera, you can use wider apertures in low light for shallower depth of field without overexposing images.

Cinematographers can use our ND8 Filter to create more cinematic effects in low light without losing quality or overexposing the shot.

All our circular filters come with a protective travel tin case, a recycled cleaning cloth, and recycled plastic-free packaging.

How to Use

ND8 (3 Stop) Filter 2Peak

1/4

Find your filter size

Search your lens and find the diameter symbol Ø followed by a number e.g. Ø58 or Ø58mm). This can be found on the front or side of your lens – this magic number is your filter size. Note: Your lens focal length (e.g. 18-55mm) is not your filter size.

2/4

Place flat and screw clockwise

Lovingly behold lens in one hand and place flat on lens. Gently screw clockwise until just firm. Do not over-tighten – that which goes on must one day come off.

3/4

Slow your shutter

The fixed f-stop darkening of your images allows a controlled slowing of your shutter speed for motion blur effects.

4/4

Open your aperture

Or, you can adjust for fixed f-stop darkening by opening up your aperture, which creates a shallower depth of field. You can also combine both exposure setting adjustments.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which ND filter should I buy?

The best ND filter for your photography will depend on the effects you want to achieve.

The first choice you need to make it whether to go for a Fixed ND Filter or a Variable ND Filter. A variable ND filter offers more options, which is great if you’re shooting in changing light conditions, or just starting out with ND filters. A fixed ND provides a specific light reduction and works better with telephoto and wide-angle lenses. The next choice you need to make is the level of light reduction you want. The higher the ND number, the more light it blocks from reaching your camera sensor.

Should I buy a fixed or variable ND filter?

It depends on how, where and what you’ll be shooting.

Fixed ND filters block a fixed f-stop of light from entering your camera. Variable ND filters provide more flexibility and have a range of f-stops you can block by rotating the outer element. If you’re starting out with ND filters, we recommend a Variable ND so you have more flexibility while you’re learning how to shoot with an ND. If the light is likely to change often, a Variable ND saves you changing between fixed NDs each time.

Do I need to get an ND if I already have a CPL?

Yes, if you want more than a 2 f-stop reduction of light.

While CPL filters polarize light to remove reflections and increase colour saturation, ND filters reduce the amount of light that makes it through to your camera’s sensor, which opens up opportunities to experiment with depth of field and motion blur effects even in bright light.

What are the best ND filters for wide-angle and telephoto lenses?

Our whole range of Fixed ND Filters work with wide-angle and telephoto lenses.

Our ND filters have ultra-slim rims to avoid any vignetting issues. Our Fixed ND Filters are all in our professional Plus+ range and use the world’s best glass, making them perfect for wide-angle and telephoto lenses.

What do the ND Filter numbers mean?

The higher the number, the more light it blocks from entering your camera.

The 4 of our ND4 Filter Plus+ refers to the amount of light blocked. An ND2 reduces light transmittance to a quarter. An ND8 reduces it to an eighth, an ND1000 reduces it to 1/1000th.

Fourth but not my last Gobe filter

This is my 4th Gobe filter, and I swear by them all. Incredibly well presented with build quality to match, so often cheaper filters' threads are bad and can easily ruin the thread on the lens, but I've had no issues with any of Gobe's products. With regard to the ND8 there is no noticeable colour cast and no reduction in image quality as long as you make sure to keep it clean and dust free (easy with the microfiber cloth that comes in the box!) Although I have Gobe's variable NDX I still use the ND8 in situations where I don't have time to play around to find the right exposure, its very handy to know that with the ND8 you will have 3 stops of reduction every time, no trial and error that you may have with a variable ND.

Solid and reliable

I measured exactly 3 stops exposure reduction from the ND8 filter, as expected. I checked the colour balance against a Sekonic grey card illuminated by an LED panel.

The measured colour temperature increased from 5,600'K to 6,000'K after adding the filter. The Photoshop (ACR) measured tint increased from +5 to +12 (a shift towards magenta end of the scale). Automatic white balance should compensate for this or could be adjusted in software. Including a known white or grey card in a pre-shot would help.

Impeccable quality

Absolutely incredible filter! I am a full time photographer and I use filters every day and I cannot believe how amazing this filter is. I disassembled the filter and it has a 1mm thickness which is thinner and lighter than the typical 2-3mm you would see with other brands. The coatings not only blow away the competition across the entire visible range for reflection elimination but they repel water amazingly well. When you clean the surface it doesn't streak like you may see on other non repelling coatings. The filter is about 2/3's the thickness of a standard filter (6mm total thickness vs 8mm standard, 3.5mm added thickness vs 5.5mm standard) so you can stack more without risking vignetting. The build quality is also extremely clean and professional. The label is very crisp and clear on the edge and is of high quality screen printing. The filter also came with a very nice impact resistant case that seems to be a lot more durable than other cases. The case also has a well designed foam insert that protects the filter while travelling. Mine also came with a cleaning cloth!

5 trees and top quality

Very well made ND filter, beautifully packaged with effective storage method as shown in the photo. Screws onto lens with obviously high quality threads (i.e. no looseness or scratching sounds). Very pleased with ND results and I have already purchased a second (46mm) one for another lens. I like the fact that Gobe plant 5 trees for each filter purchase!
