About Hoya

Photographing solar eclipses and ultra-bright light sources can be extremely dangerous. This filter reduces light values by 9 stops to less than 1/500th of its original intensity and allows safe photography.

It can also be used to achieve super slow shutter speeds in daylight to render moving subjects invisible, and will enable you to use slow shutter speeds, especially with high speed films, to record movement in subjects such as waterfalls, clouds, vehicles, etc.

It will also decrease depth of field by allowing wider apertures to be used, which helps separate subjects from their background. And this filter allows you to decrease the effective ISO of high speed film (above ISO 400) so it can be used outdoors in bright situations.

Neutral Density filters have no effect on color balance, appear grey and reduce the amount of light reaching the film. Multi-coating minimizes reflection at the filter surfaces which reduces flare as well as ghosting.

Hoya Features

  • Neutral Density Factor 2.7 / 400 x

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Has any one used this Filter, I have a canon 18-55mm, 58dia lens, how good is the picture after mounting this filter?
EDWARD K  I think that for the price/value, the Hoya is unbeatable. Keep in mind that it is an 8 stop filter, not 9 stops, as Hoya claims. I stepped up to the convenience of the Lee Big Stopper, which allows me to compose and focus, as well as get a baseline exposure value, then just sliding the filter into place. The Hoya is not as easy, as it is a screw in. You can still compose and focus, but screwing and unscrewing the filter can become tedious. One advantage that the Hoya has over the Lee, in bright light, you can see through the mounted filter in the viewfinder. Another advantage, since the filter is 2 stops lighter than the Big Stopper, you can use the Hoya with a speedlight for outdoor portraits, for some added creativity. Like the Lee Big Stopper, the Hoya ND400 is a glass filter. Though it will create a bluish color cast, unlike magenta color cast of resin filters, it is easy to correct in post processing. I actually like the blue cast, as I use these filters for daytime and water themed long exposures. The sky just looks a bit nicer. So, if you are looking for a reasonably priced ND for long exposure work, look no further. If you don't mind screwing and unscrewing the filter, look no further. Even though I use the Lee Big Stopper most of the time, I still use my Hoya, and as a matter of fact, I used this one today on my 28mm prime.
