Extended Exposure and Landscape Pictures With Variable ND Filters

Extended Exposure and Landscape Pictures With Variable ND Filters

Can this new hack for variable neutral density filters expand their usability in landscape pictures and extended publicity? 

A few of months back, we reviewed the H&Y Revoring VND+CPL in terms of how this new form of mounting mechanism can be price tag-economical. In testing it, several limits are generally located in most if not all variable ND filters applied to it. While the filter has excellent glass that is shock- and moisture-resistant and has very good color general performance, the biggest limitation is the look of cross-polarization or the “x artifact” when shooting with broader lenses and employing it at 6 stops and outside of. This imposed a restrict on carrying out lengthy exposures with broader lenses, which, in general, produced it significantly less usable for landscape pictures, just like most other VND filters. 

H&Y then came up with a alternative to get earlier this. Whilst the constraints of the VND nonetheless use in the sense that you are not able to go beyond 6 stops on a huge lens, H&Y produced magnetic clip-on ND filters with 2, 3, 4, and 8.5-end variants. This will allow the person to merge the influence of the two filters to realize additional stops without receiving cross-polarization. Together with this, H&Y also introduced a new Revoring with a bare CPL on it. This online video was shot with the CPL filter on the online video digicam, and demo pictures ended up completed with the variable ND in combination with the clip-on filters.
