“Great for video and stills. Probably the most useful tool in my camera bag.” – Jo bought our ND2-400.

Urth Neutral Density Filters (ND Filters) cut the amount of light entering your camera to unlock motion blur and depth-of-field effects. By filtering out light, Urth ND filters allow you to open up your aperture for a shallower depth of field even in bright light. Or you can compensate for the lower light by slowing your shutter speed and creating motion blur effects without overexposing your photographs. ND filters are a crucial tool for filmmakers too as they allow you to film in bright and harsh light without overexposing or pushing your exposure settings too far. Urth ND filters give you greater creative control when there is excessive light like you’ll experience in outdoor photography and filmmaking. Urth fixed ND filters block a set amount of light, while Urth Variable NDs have a rotating element that adjusts the amount of light blocked depending on what you need. Each ND filter plants 5 trees so future generations can enjoy nature as much as we do now. All our circular filters come with a protective travel tin case, a recycled cleaning cloth, and recycled plastic-free packaging. Read more Read less

Which ND Filter should I buy?
The best ND filter for your photography will depend on the effects you want to achieve.
The first choice you need to make it whether to go for a Fixed ND Filter or a Variable ND Filter. A variable ND filter offers more options, which is great if you’re shooting in changing light conditions, or just starting out with ND filters. A fixed ND provides a specific light reduction and works better with telephoto and wide-angle lenses. The next choice you need to make is the level of light reduction you want. The higher the ND number, the more light it blocks from reaching your camera sensor.
Do I need to buy an ND filter if I already have a CPL?
Yes, if you want more than a 2 f-stop reduction of light.
While CPL filters polarize light to remove reflections and increase colour saturation, ND filters reduce the amount of light that makes it through to your camera’s sensor, which opens up opportunities to experiment with depth of field and motion blur effects even in bright light.
What are the best ND filters 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.
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.
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.
