oh yeah

  • Excerpt: this is just the filter I have been searching for.I have a Nikon D-810 with 24-70 and 70-200 F2.8 Nikon lenses (77mm) and a 105 mm Nikon f2.8 macro lens (62 mm) that I use outside in variable lighting conditions (tropical environment) ranging from extremely sunny to cloudy, that can change in an instant. I bought the same filter in both sizes and can only say "Oh Yeah". The ability to change density without having to change filters... sweet.

Solid filter for the price.

  • Excerpt: For the price, this is a great filter. up to about 8 stops the filter is great. when you crank it all the way up the polarization fields line up in an odd way and cause a dark spot in the middle of the lens. so just don't use it closed all the way and its great. sturdy construction, clear optics...good stuff.

A Must For Waterfalls

John, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I put this filter to work on a recent trip photographing waterfalls in Idaho, Oregon, and California. It enabled a range of shutter speeds that best showed off the character of each situation from motion stopping speed on turbulent falls to milky white solid flow with shutter speeds of 1/4 sec. to 1 sec. on more smoothly flowing falls. I am very pleased with the resulting images. The high quality glass and smooth lens ring rotation make this a superior product.

Great quality, Great price

  • Excerpt: I think Hoya circular filters are the best deal out there. The are great quality and don't empty your wallet. I do get a slight blue cast with them, but I tend to lean that way anyway, and it can easily be fixed in post if needed. This 3 stop was picked up to help achieve blurred water and to shorten dop for portraits. I also use a square filter system for my graduated filters, and these screw ins are threaded so can be used in conjunction with them as well.

  • Excerpt: HOYA VARIABLE DENSITY FILTER..A must for controlling lighting situations.....This filter can and will block strong lighting conditions when you may need a soft effect..... We can't dial up or down the sun, this filter will answer this situation.

Adequate.

  • Excerpt: The first thing I noticed with this filter is that there is no way to mount a lens cap. Not a big deal but considering I'm forced to not be able to properly protect this product then it deserves a reduced rating. The rotating ring spins infinitely i.e. nothing stops it when it reaches the point where the density no longer changes.

very nice filter, quality construction

  • Excerpt: this is a nicely put together filter boasting beautiful glass. i think top of the line hoya filters are just as good as B+W's (of which, i have many). the major difference being B+Ws are made of brass and the hoyas are made of aluminum. otherwise, the glass is just as good in my opinion.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable
