      With every Gobe product purchased trees are planted in areas most affected by deforestation.

      As of November in 2019 we’ve become the sole sponsor of a site in Madagascar called Morangobe which employs 43 families but was at risk of being shut down due to a sudden loss of funding. We’ve committed to planting 100,000 trees per month in Morangobe to ensure restoration can continue there. Any additional trees are spread across our planting sites in Indonesia, Nepal, Haiti and Mozambique.

      The trees are planted by locals, providing vital employment while rejuvenating their world and ours.

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).

  • 8 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 8 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!

GOBE 77mm 2Peak NDX Filter Review

The GOBE 77mm NDX filter is a great filter that brings out more contrast and color to your photos during bright periods of the day. While bringing more contrast to the photo, the level of darkness can be adjusted to slow shutter speed down; this will help to create silky flowing water in your photos.

Keys Benefits:
- High quality Japanese glass to cut down on chromatic aberrations, flare & haze.
- Easy to clean (Anti-Scratch, Water Repellent, Oil & Dust Resistant)
- Cost 20-30% less than competitors while not sacrificing quality.
- Brings out more contrast to photos while adding a hint more color during bright days.
- Slows shutter speed down while adding flowing water effect to photos.

Key Disadvantages:
- First time you add the filter to your camera, the filter may need to be seated properly in the threads. After you attach it correctly the first time, the threads be be set, making it easier for every time after.
- At maximum, you may see the inner glass crossing in the photo on wider angle lenses. If this happens, reduce the darkness to 75-25%. This range is optimal for wide angle.

GOBE also donates 1% of their profit to 1% for the Planet to non-profit orgs that help with environmental restoration and protection. GOBE also uses environmentally friendly packaging and labels that are recyclable. The plastic case uses less plastic while protecting your filter as well. Gobe is now planting trees with every purchase; a fantastic initiative empowering customers to join the environmental revolution! see their website for more details! mygobe.com

Review NDX filter GOBE - MY IMPRESSIONSReview by Andrea
Quality

Service
I'm a Photographer Naturalist, and I bought this GOBE NDX filter, 77mm in size to be able to be used mainly with a Tokina AT-X PRO 16-50; In the past I have purchased similar filters of different sizes from other manufacturers (some even the best known), but I never felt fully satisfied for a number of reasons:

1. Strong vignetting on the sides.
2. considerable loss of sharpness.
3. Strong dominant color.
4. Poor quality thread which eventually threatens to ruin the breading lens.

To overcome these reasons, this time I decided to try and trust a company that until recently had not yet know, but I already intrigued by a laudable initiative to help safeguard the planet (1% for the planet), and I made a pleasant discovery!
Once you ordered the filter, the expedition started very quickly and in three days I received the package at home by courier; the product arrives at home in the classic Amazon package for shipments of small, all 'inside we find the cardboard casing with brand GOBE, inside there is the hard plastic box (very durable), making a slight pressure on one side, it can not easily open, inside the filter is protected by a neoprene lining.

WE TALK OF THE FILTER NOW:
The product is very solid, and the glass is definitely of excellent quality; on the dial is designed one of the intensity scale, so it turning the front side, you understand easily what intensity you are using the filter. I tried for a few days this filter before writing this review, and using it I HAVE NO PROBLEM FOUND THAT I HAD IN THE PAST WITH OTHER MANUFACTURERS FILTERS.
No vignetting or loss of sharpness, nor considerable dominant colour. As mentioned earlier the product is really of good workmanship, and also the thread engages quietly to the lens without straining. All this without forgetting the price, which is VERY competitive.

In conclusion I feel fully satisfied with this purchase, and will definitely continue to buy their products, so I can replace the old filters that I bought before this. (Posted on 2/20/2016)
Beautiful build qualityReview by By Jean Claude Grouard

I already have a ND400 filter and CPL but under certain conditions, I already regretted not having a neutral filter ND4 or ND16.

This type of filter is a good solution to always have his camera bag, a filter for long breaks adapted to different light conditions. If one is in the woods or in the sun, we can adjust the density of grey and therefore the shutter speed.

The ring is smooth and slightly wider than the diameter of the screw. It facilitates the handling but prohibits the use of the visor on my Canon 300/4 L. Anyway, I thought earlier to use with my 10-22 or 24-105 on my 6D, all mount on a tripod.

The metal ring is provided to prevent expansion. I broke two polarizing filters that remained firmly screwed on the lens. I opted for for a high-end polarizing, much more avoids any problem of this type.

One fine filter in a perfectly adjusted box but without any mark if we throw the carton. (Posted on 2/17/2016)

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 2/2/2016)

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 2/2/2016)

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 1/24/2016)

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 1/23/2016)
Bin zufrieden :-)Review by Milkyway

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 1/19/2016)

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 1/8/2016)

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 11/24/2015)
