DESCRIPTION

Our Variable ND2-32 Filter has a locking min and max setting and can be adjusted to block 1 to 5 f-stops of light, giving you more flexibility in changing light.

By blocking up to 5 f-stops, you can use wider apertures in variable light for shallower depth of field effects, and slower shutter speeds for long exposure effects without overexposing your images.

Cinematographers can use our Variable ND2-32 Filter to create more cinematic effects in variable light.

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

How to Use

Variable ND2-32 (1-5 Stop) Filter 3Peak

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
Excitedly 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.

Slow your shutter
The variable f-stop darkening of your images allows flexible slowing of your shutter speed for motion blur effects.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I find my 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.

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 Gobe ND filters have a colour cast?

No, Gobe ND filters have great colour neutrality.

There are a couple of reasons your images may show a slight colour cast when using an ND filter. Check your white balance settings. By restricting the light entering your camera, it may throw out your white balance settings. Manually adjust your white balance settings to reduce any colour cast.

What’s the best Variable ND filter for wide-angle lenses?

This one – or our Variable ND8-128 filter.

Our ND2-32 and the ND8-128 are both specifically designed for use with wide-angle lens' super-wide field of view. Variable NDs with a broader f-stop range, such as our ND2-400, have limited application with wide-angle lenses because the field of view is so broad. Variable ND filters consist of two polarizing filters, which can cause issues because the polarizing effect varies so much across the broad field of view of wide-angle lenses. This isn't a quality issue rather it's a physics restriction.

What’s the best ND to use with a telephoto lens?

Any of our 3Peak Fixed ND or Variable ND filters.

Because telephoto lenses use such high-quality optical glass and typically have so many layers of glass, we recommend you use our 3Peak professional range, because of its exceptional SCHOTT optical glass, on any lens with a focal length >100mm.

"I purchased this product to experiment with ND filters for filming video. The result was astounding as it became possible to nail the exposure at the fps and shutter speed I wanted." – Ian bought our ND2-32 3Peak.

A game changer in bright light

Fantastic variable ND filter a cut above Gobe's other variable ND filters. Worth paying the bit extra for the 3 peak version over the 1 or 2 peak but still considerably less money than most of the good quality alternatives out there. I use it for video to bring down the amount of light entering the camera in bright situations. That allows me to maintain the correct shutter speed, wide aperture and shallow focus. It really makes a massive difference in bright situations. This filter doesn't allow you to move past the end stops and keeps you in the best operating area. This avoids cross polarisation, causing horrible blue crosses you sometimes get. Other filters just keep spinning around and that also makes it difficult to know where you are if you need to make any adjustments whilst shooting. As far as I can tell so far there have been no negatives at all. 100% would recommend this filter to anyone that needs one.

So very good

I purchased this product to experiment with ND filters for filming video. The result was astounding as it became possible to nail the exposure at the fps and shutter speed I wanted. I use this on a wide angle 11-22mm lens on a Canon M50 with no issues. Well worth it.

Solid build

Very happy with the filter. From recyclable packaging, metal storage tin, free cleaning cloth and the fact that Gobe plant 5 trees per purchase (after a simple code input to their site). The filter itself is very well made. Feels solid and well built and has just the right amount of tension while adjusting on the fly. I have used it on my DSLR and also Osmo Action camera cage with a reducer ring and was great on both cameras. We now also use other Gobe filters on our.other DSLR system.
