About the product

Overview

Capture the beauty of movement and time.

The Gobe Variable ND filter can be rotated from ND2 (1 f-stop) to ND400 (8.66 f-stops) giving you great versatility in changing light.

  • ND2 to ND400

    The MIN marked on the rim of the filter denotes ND2 (1 f-stop) and the MAX denotes ND400 (8.66 f-stops).

  • 24 layer nano coating

    For perfect colour neutrality and durability. This filter can withstand salty water, dust, extreme wind and other abrasive elements.

  • Lifetime replacement

    At Gobe we stand by each product with a lifetime warranty.

Control the amount of light passing through your camera sensor.

By twisting the Gobe Variable ND filter you will be able to control the amount of light passing through your camera sensor without affecting the colour balance.

This will allow you to use lower apertures in bright light conditions, giving you a creative possibility for beautiful shallow depth of field photographs in bright light.

ND2 - ND400
Twist it your way

The rotating outer rim gives the versatility of adjusting between ND2 to ND400, saving you from constantly changing ND filters in varying light such as sunrise or sunset.

  • Premium optical glass

    Made with Japanese optical glass and coated with 24 layers of Gobe’s ultra-nano  coating for extra sharpness.

  • Ultra-slim profile

    All Gobe lens filters have an ultra-slim rim, to avoid vignetting.

  • Magnalium framing

    Durable frame made from extra tough magnalium which prevents jamming.

For perfect ND photos

Rotate the Variable ND filter between the MIN and MAX markings on the rim.

Do not go past these settings, or you will see vignetting and at the extreme a dark cross will appear in frame wrecking your beautiful photos.

For wide angle and telephoto lenses, we recommend the use of the Variable ND2-32 or ND8-128 or fixed ND filters.

With wide-angle and telephoto lenses, rotate only half way or until you begin to see vignetting.

Note: Lens caps and sunhoods need to be one thread size larger (ie. 62mm NDX uses 67mm lens cap).

Have fun!
