DESCRIPTION

By blocking 1 to 8.66 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 ND2–400 Variable ND Filter to create more cinematic effects in low and bright light.

How to Use

Variable ND2-400 (1-8.65 Stop) Filter

1/5

Find your filter size
Inquisitively search lens for diameter symbol. Ø often marks the spot. The diameter you seek may be accompanied by a number – Ø58 or Ø58mm. Look to the side and the front – this precious number is your filter size. Be warned: your lens focal length (e.g. 18-55mm) is not your filter size.

2/5

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which Variable ND Filter should I buy?

It depends on the conditions you’ll be shooting in and the effects you want to achieve.

Our Variable ND2-32 is made for low-light, our Variable ND2-400 and ND8-128 are for low-light and bright light, and our ND64-1000 is specifically for harsh bright light and long exposure.

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 Urth ND filters have a colour cast?

No, they 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 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.

Do I need to step-up my lens cap for Urth Variable ND Filters?

No, our Variable ND Filters take the same size lens cap.

If your lens takes a 67mm Urth Variable ND Filter, your 67mm lens cap will fit perfectly. Some variable ND filters require you to step-up a size, but not Urth.

“Great for video and stills. Probably the most useful tool in my camera bag.” – Jo bought our ND2-400.

Fantastic variety!

This filter is awesome! I have used ND filters previously but the variable filter is a game changer! It is so easy to put on and you can control the light with a twist. I was able to capture some long exposure shots on a sunny day and get that blurred out water effect. It really opens up the creative possibilities for what you can create. A fantastic addition to any photographers kit.

The only ND filter you need!

This was my first time using any ND filter and I am now hooked. I love that I can now control the light that I want. Usually I end up with over exposed skies. It was so easy to use. It looks and feels amazing too. The quality is definitely there. I can’t wait to see all the different possibilities I can create with it now. It’s definitely a game change. Every photographer should have one.

Thank you!

Wish there were more companies like this. I love the sustainability and affordability of the product, the postage was super fast and the build quality is amazing. A lot of thought has gone into this product and it shows - right down to the case that it comes in. Thank you again!
