DESCRIPTION

By blocking light entering your camera, our ND8 Filter allows you to use longer shutter speeds for long exposure and motion blur effects in low light.

With less light entering your camera, you can use wider apertures in low light for shallower depth of field without overexposing images.

Cinematographers can use our ND8 Filter to create more cinematic effects in low light without losing quality or overexposing the shot.

All our circular filters come with a protective travel tin case, a recycled cleaning cloth, and recycled plastic-free packaging.

How to Use

ND8 (3 Stop) Filter 1Peak

1/4

Find your filter size

Search your lens and find the diameter symbol Ø followed by a number e.g. Ø58 or Ø58mm). This can be found on the front or side of your lens – this magic number is your filter size. Note: Your lens focal length (e.g. 18-55mm) is not your filter size.

Place flat and screw clockwise

Lovingly behold lens in one hand and place flat on lens. Gently screw clockwise until just firm. Do not over-tighten – that which goes on must one day come off.

3/4

Slow your shutter

The fixed f-stop darkening of your images allows a controlled slowing of your shutter speed for motion blur effects.

4/4

Open your aperture

Or, you can adjust for fixed f-stop darkening by opening up your aperture, which creates a shallower depth of field. You can also combine both exposure setting adjustments.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which ND filter should I buy?

The best ND filter for your photography will depend on the effects you want to achieve, and the type of lens you’re using.

The first choice you need to make is whether to go for a fixed ND filter or a variable ND filter. A variable ND filter offers more options, which is great if you’re shooting in unpredictable or variable light conditions. A fixed ND provides a specific light reduction and works better with telephoto and wide-angle lenses. And in terms of choosing which range to buy, let the quality of your lenses guide your decision – 1Peak filters for entry-level, 2Peak for mid-tier, and 3Peak for professional lenses. The next choice you need to make is the level of light reduction you want. The higher the ND number, the more light it stops from reaching your camera sensor.

Should I buy a fixed or variable ND filter?

It depends on how, where and what you’ll be shooting.

Fixed ND filters block a fixed f-stop of light from entering your camera. Variable ND filters provide more flexibility and have a range of f-stops you can block by rotating the outer element. If you’re starting out with ND filters, we recommend a Variable ND so you have more flexibility while you’re learning how to shoot with an ND. If the light is likely to change often, a Variable ND saves you changing between fixed NDs each time.

Do I need to get an ND if I already have a CPL?

If you want to reduce the light that goes through your lens by more than 2 f-stops, yes.

While CPL filters polarize light to remove reflections and increase colour saturation, ND filters reduce the amount of light that makes it through to your camera’s sensor, which opens up opportunities to experiment with depth of field, slower shutter speeds and motion blur, even in bright conditions.

What are the best ND filters for wide-angle and telephoto lenses?

Any of our ND filters work with wide-angle lenses and we recommend our 3Peak range for telephoto lenses.

Our ND filters have ultra-slim rims to avoid any vignetting issues. We suggest you use the quality of your lens to guide which range of ND filter you buy and go for the 3Peak range for telephoto lenses. Because of the amount of glass in telephoto lenses, using our 3Peak ND filters will provide the best possible image quality.

What's the difference between Japanese glass and SCHOTT glass?

The main difference is that SCHOTT glass has slightly better light transmission.

German Schott B270 optical glass is highly resistant to solar radiation and offers high transmittance in the visible wavelength range. It also has high chemical stability and a fire-polished surface providing excellent image sharpness. Our Premium Japanese Optical glass is also a very high-quality optical glass with a very similar light transmission – 99.6% versus the German Schott B270’s 99.8% light transmission. It is very hard to see the difference in image quality unless using telephoto lenses (focal length >100mm) or enlarging images to be printed in large formats.

" I love love love shooting with this filter, I no longer have fear of shooting in the middle of the day with the right set up. I plan to get more and def recommend!" – Preston bought our ND8 1Peak.

Quality through and through

Way better than some cheaper filters I've used. Threads are very good, and case/packaging is excellent. The cleaning cloth included is a nice touch.

Would recommend

Fit was great. Awesome matte finish. Would recommend Gobe to colleague and friends. They planted 5 trees for my one purchase which was a nice surprise. I unfortunately ordered the wrong strength filter. I wanted 8 stops so I ordered "ND8" I find out this is just the name and it only drops it by 2 or 3 stops. Thats okay. Im not going to return it because of the awesome quality. I'll just order the right one eventually. Thanks Gobe!

Better than the rest

This is an excellent quality 3 stops filter. I mounted it on my super sharp Sigma 135mm f1.8 and It does not affect the image quality at all. There is no visible hue, vignetting or colour cast on the images taken. Other expensive filters maybe are just a tiny bit better if you test them in lab environment, but I don't care about something human eye is unable to differentiate. While I care about technical aspects of photography, I care more about the feeling and art in my work. I wanted to use this to reduce daylight while shooting in lower f stops (yes I love Bokeh), so I will be able to use regular speed light instead of HSS which is more expensive. It works. This is my third Gobe filter and I am totally satisfied with their quality. Gobe definitely beats its overpriced competitors and I like their love of nature.
