I’ve been in my workshop developing several new photography products- the first are two photography ND filters, one at 10-Stops, the other at 6-Stops.

The word ND means Neutral Density, or that the filter doesn’t introduce any color cast.
Here’s the hard truth: I’ve only seen a couple brands that you cannot tell has shifted any color. There are some pretty overpriced & awfully performing filters out there. One famous brand name filter is charging $130 for one of the worst performing filters I’ve ever seen. It’s a total ripoff and shouldn’t even be classified as an ND filter, but there is no governing body that regulates ND ratings.
I got sick of it and decided I would:

1. Develop a test that anyone could do to grade their ND filters.
2. I would produce ND filters better than even the big brand name companies.

My recent YouTube video will demonstrate the test (it’s in my profile) and also show how my new filters compete against them (here’s a spoiler: it wasn’t pretty for them)

And if you are still reading this: There are links on that video for $50 off . The 6 stop ones are in stock, with the 10 stop ones coming shortly.
Don’t buy those crappy ND filters unless you are paying less than $30. When you go for a high grade one, get the BEST. I’m proud to put my name on those! (And yes, Maven is a registered trademark for photography products) ☺️
