SLR Magic 82mm Variable ND Filter | Review
The degree of density is easily controlled by rotating the front filter ring via the non-removable lever. Calibrated markings (12 reference points) make it easy for repeatable positions.
The front filter ring has a larger diameter than the rear which is designed to avoid vignetting, even when using with wide angles lenses. The latest Mark II versions feature the ability to rotate the filter without unscrewing it from the lens, assisting the orientation of the polarisation effect in Vari NDs. This is particularly useful when dealing with the polarisation effect expansive skies in landscape photography for example.
The SLR Magic Vari ND filters are the highest quality multicoated optical glass to ensure the best performance. Variable ND filters usually show striation patterns in the out-of-focus circles of confusion in the bokeh but the SLR Magic Variable ND filters are optimized to suppress such unwanted artefacts.
Suitable for film or still photography use. Includes protective case and front lens cap.
