DESCRIPTION

By blocking 3 to 7 f-stops, you can use wider apertures in low variable light for shallower depth of field effects, and slower shutter speeds for long exposure effects without overexposing your images. Videographers can use our ND8–128 Variable ND Filter Plus+ to create more cinematic effects in low to bright light.

Our Plus+ range features 20 layers of nano-coating providing easier cleaning and better protection against water, oil, and scratches. These layers also provide a higher maximum light transmission and a more consistent transmission curve for truer light reduction.

How to Use

Variable ND8-128 (3-7 Stop) Filter Plus+

1/5

Find your filter size
Inquisitively search lens for diameter symbol. Ø often marks the spot. The diameter you seek may be accompanied by a number – Ø58 or Ø58mm. Look to the side and the front – this precious number is your filter size. Be warned: your lens focal length (e.g. 18-55mm) is not your filter size.

2/5

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.

3/5

Slow your shutter
The 3 to 7 f-stop darkening of your images allows you to slow your shutter speed for motion blur effects.

4/5

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.

Use our ND8–128 to create more cinematic effects when filming. By blocking 3 to 7 f-stops of light, you can open your aperture for a shallower depth of field, creating stunning cinematic effects in different and changing light conditions.

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.

“A life saver for bright light. Lets you shoot with wide-open apertures in broad daylight. A total game changer.” – George bought our ND8-128 Plus+

Variable ND8-128 filter plus

Seems well made. Used twice so far. Once for some time-lapse and once for video on Nikon z6ii. Does what it says. Not tried more expensive makes so can't compare....this does fine for me I have used it on professional jobs. Seems good value to me.

An outdoor photography cheat code

This changed my photography for the better. So much easier to deal with changing light when I'm out in the mountains shooting.

Pretty good

Mostly happy with this filter. I deliberately waited 6 months for this newer model of filter that is double-threaded so I could stack with other filters if I wanted. However I have noticed some vignetting if I stack on top of my CPL filter and some comedy colour distortion if I stack them the other way round! So that is a little disappointing, but I am new to the world of photography so no idea if this is to be expected.
