Beginners Buyers Guide to ND Filters




So, you are in the market for an ND filter? You have come to the right place! ND filters, also know as neutral density filters are designed to reduce the exposure of light.

Why would you want to do this? There are many applications, however the most common is when you are shooting in daylight conditions and you want to use a longer exposure or a wider aperture. Landscape photographers will often use many second exposures, or sometimes videographers want to use wide apertures to get a shallow depth of field, but they cannot because the image would over expose. Of course there are many other times to use ND filters, but whats with all this terminology? What does it mean?

You have come to the right place, let me break it down for you!
