About the product

Overview

Capture the beauty of movement and time.

The Gobe Variable ND filter can be rotated from ND2 (50% light transmittance) to ND400 (0.25% light transmittance) 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).

  • Designed for the weather

    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 weather sealed for extra sharpness.

  • Ultra-slim profile

    All Gobe lens filters have an ultra-slim rim, to avoid vignetting on wide angle lenses.

  • 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.

With wide-angle 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!

Perfect ND FilterReview by Marius

Since this is my first NDX filter I wanted to have a variable, to find out what I need before I pay € 120 for 4 filters ...
I am surprised because the "evil dark cross " shows only on the Max . Level... and no other colour lichen changes seen!
Top filter... I 'm going but still set a grayscale filter with a length extension factor of 1000, as I get my FZ300 only to f / 8.

This variable density filter is high quality, the movement for adjusting the density is very smooth and fluid.
There is no catch as other filters I've experienced before, which allows very fine adjustment.
I use this filter on a Fuji X100T (49mm diameter) in my travels abroad in long break situations when the sky is too white. Finally, the filter comes in a box with a high density foam is perfectly adapted to the diameter of the filter.
Another plus for photographers finally the eco fibre, the brand will plant 5 trees for each purchased filter! (Posted on 2016-02-02)

First of all I am very satisfied with the quality of the packaging , the filter is well maintained in a suitable plastic box.

The filter is very well positioned on the goal, against as mentioned in other reviews , it is necessary to remove the visor.

The ring to adjust the density is in focus and practice.

I recommend all for photo enthusiasts into the light ! (Posted on 2016-02-02)

I gave the highest of the evaluation as the filter did not present any problems (vignetting or dominant color). I used it with a Canon 6D on a 24-105mm lens and it works perfectly. I recommend it to anyone who wants to lengthen the shutter speeds. Versatile and affordable, excellent delivery and very nice packaging. (Posted on 2016-01-24)

The filter is as described, physically fits well and used easily. Now, in relation to the range of use, I would recommend not using it to reduce light beyond 5 or 6 steps because from there vignetting increasingly noticeable .
As a tip, use only filter range that has drawn bars , where it says "max " and " min" I do not recommend. (Posted on 2016-01-23)

Ich bin Einsteiger in der ND-Fotografie und habe nach einem brauchbaren Einsteigermodell gesucht, um erst einmal herauszufinden, ob ich damit zurechtkomme, welche Filterstärken für mich interessant wären und um mit Belichtung, Blende und Filter zu experimentieren. Dabei hat mich der Filter echt positiv überrascht! Ich habe schon ein paar sehr hübsche Bilder damit fabrizieren können.

Das Gewinde des Filters ist gut verarbeitet und auch sonst macht er auf mich einen sehr guten Eindruck. Die Filterscheiben lassen sich leichtgängig gegeneinander verschieben, um den gewünschten ND-Grad zu erreichen. Die Beschriftung ist allerdings - wie bei so ziemlich allen variablen Graufiltern - nur wenig hilfreich.

Das "gefürchtete" dunkle Kreuz, dass bei variablen Filtern wohl häufig auftritt, ist auch hier deutlich sichtbar - allerdings erst ab den recht hohen ND-Werten.

Ich freue mich jedenfalls sehr über meinen Kauf und würde ihn auch anderen empfehlen, die ND-Fotografie mal ausprobieren wollen. (Posted on 2016-01-19)

I am beginner in the ND-photography and was searching for a usable entry-level model to find out once, if I get along with what filter strengths would be interesting for me, and to experiment with exposure, aperture and filter. Here I was really positively surprised the filter! I have to fabricate some very nice pictures with it.

The thread of the filter is well-made and otherwise he makes me a very good impression. Filter discs can be smoothly slide against each other to achieve the desired ND degree. The label, however, is - as with just about every variable neutral density filters - only unhelpful.

The "dreaded" dark cross that with variable filters probably occurs frequently, is also clearly visible - but only from the rather high ND values.

I am in any case very about my purchase and would also recommend it to others, want to try the ND Photograph times. (Posted on 2016-01-08)

Great FilterReview by Francisco

Variable ND filter very versatile, ranging from almost transparent to the almost total darkness (for very long exposures). You just have to be very careful with shock and / or vibration, as they may upset the balance of the crystals and hinder the desired density setting. (Posted on 2015-11-24)
