Circular PL filter helps to increase color saturation and to reduce reflections from water, glass and other surfaces. ND filter can reduce light intensity without changing color balance. There is the occasion that you want to use both C-PL filter and ND filter to reduce reflections and set the slow shutter when shooting water splash, streaming, etc. This CREATION C-PL/ND filter has dual purpose polarizer and ND functions two-in-one and there is no need to stack two filters. This filter employs slim profile frame (thickness is 5.0mm without thread) so that vignetting can be prevented.
The transmission rate of circular PL filter varies depending on the position of rotating ring.
The values of ND8 and ND16 are the center density when rotating the ring in whole angle.
There is the case that you carry multiple standard ND filters and choose one of them, or stack them to realize desired ND value at the shooting site. This filter can reducelight intensity over a wide range from 1/2.5 to 1/500. Since the desired ND value can be adjusted by rotating the filter ring, there is no need to carry many ND filters with different densities. Despite of its double frame structure, it employs slim profile frame (thickness is 5.9mm without thread) to prevent vignetting.
|Light Intensity||1/2.5 to 1/500|
|ExposureValue||1 1/3 stops to 9.0 stops|
|Density||0.4 to 2.7|
In the range of high density, the cross pattern image may happen depending on shooting condition.
