DESCRIPTION

Our Variable ND2-400 Filter can be adjusted to block 1 to 8.66 f-stops of light, giving you more flexibility in bright variable light.

By blocking up to 8.66 f-stops, you can use wider apertures in bright variable light for shallower depth of field effects, and slower shutter speeds for long exposure effects without overexposing your images.

Cinematographers can use our Variable ND2-400 Filter to create more cinematic effects in bright light.

For best results, only rotate within the MIN and MAX markings on the rim. For wide-angle and telephoto lenses, we recommend our Variable ND2-32 or ND8-128 or fixed ND filters. With wide-angle and telephoto lenses, rotate only halfway or until you begin to see vignetting. Lens caps and sun hoods need to be one thread size larger (ie. 62mm NDX uses 67mm lens cap).

All our circular filters come with a protective travel tin case, a recycled cleaning cloth, and recycled plastic-free packaging.

How to Use

Variable ND2-400 Filter 1Peak

1/4

Find your filter size
Search your lens and find the diameter symbol Ø followed by a number (e.g. Ø58 or Ø58mm). This can be found on the front or side of your lens – this magic number is your filter size. Note: Your lens focal length (e.g. 18-55mm) is not your filter size.

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.

Open your aperture
Or, you can adjust for the darkening by opening up your aperture, which creates a shallower depth of field. You can also combine both exposure setting adjustments.

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.

"The filter works beautifully and feels extremely high quality. The case it comes with is really nice, and overall the value for money is excellent. It turns smoothly and the materials feel really nice. I'll buy more filters from Gobe." – Chad bought our ND2-400 1Peak.

Fantastic!

My first variable ND filter, fantastic value. The quality of the filter and the smoothness of the dial makes it a joy to shoot with. No vignetting for me when I keep it between the min and max settings.

I would definitely recommend this product.

Perfect!

Good quality product, fast shipping and well package. This filter is pretty handy for video when it's a bit too bright outside and want to apply the 180 degree rules!
