DESCRIPTION

Our Variable ND2-400 Filter can be adjusted to block 1 to 8.66 f-stops of light, giving you more flexibility in bright variable light.

By blocking up to 8.66 f-stops, you can use wider apertures in bright variable light for shallower depth of field effects, and slower shutter speeds for long exposure effects without overexposing your images.

Cinematographers can use our Variable ND2-400 Filter to create more cinematic effects in bright light.

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

How to Use

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.

2/4

Place flat and screw clockwise
Excitedly 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 variable f-stop darkening of your images allows flexible slowing of your shutter speed for motion blur effects.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I find my 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.

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 Gobe ND filters have a colour cast?

No, Gobe ND filters have great colour neutrality.

There are a couple of reasons your images may show a slight colour cast when using an ND filter. Check your white balance settings. By restricting the light entering your camera, it may throw out your white balance settings. Manually adjust your white balance settings to reduce any colour cast.

What’s the best Variable ND filter for wide-angle lenses?

This one – or our Variable ND8-128 filter.

Our ND2-32 and the ND8-128 are both specifically designed for use with wide-angle lens' super-wide field of view. Variable NDs with a broader f-stop range, such as our ND2-400, have limited application with wide-angle lenses because the field of view is so broad. Variable ND filters consist of two polarizing filters, which can cause issues because the polarizing effect varies so much across the broad field of view of wide-angle lenses. This isn't a quality issue rather it's a physics restriction.

What’s the best ND to use with a telephoto lens?

Any of our 3Peak Fixed ND or Variable ND filters.

Because telephoto lenses use such high-quality optical glass and typically have so many layers of glass, we recommend you use our 3Peak professional range, because of its exceptional SCHOTT optical glass, on any lens with a focal length >100mm.

"The filter works beautifully and feels extremely high quality. The case it comes with is really nice, and overall the value for money is excellent. It turns smoothly and the materials feel really nice. I'll buy more filters from Gobe." – Chad bought our ND2-400 1Peak.

New to Gobe but v impressed

Was looking for an ND filter to take photos with more shallow depth of field during sunny days. Looking around on Amazon. Seemed like this one was the perfect fit with the perfect price. The filter arrived in perfect condition with great packaging. I've never heard of Gobe before now, but I will be supporting them from now. They're a modern brand with a great mission to help the Earth. And as a customer, they have great products that are designed with attention to detail. Found out how to pronounce their name by looking at the bar code. Nice touch.

Quality filter, quality packaging

I'll start by saying that I have never experimented with an ND filter before. I am an amateur photographer at best and use a Nikon D5600. I fitted this filter on my 70-300mm and went to a local waterfall to try my hand at long exposure. This filter is great. Once I figured out settings that worked well (f/9, 2.5s, ISO 100) I was able to get the effect I was looking for. This filter came well packaged (I think there were at least 3 wrappers on it) in a nice tin case with a foam pad. The all-metal construction is solid and the glass is clear and great quality. There was also a lens wipe with it and a card that directs you to their website to input a code for them to plant your trees (this also, handily, registers your product with them). I plan to purchase a few fixed ND filters from Gobe as well as some adapters so that I can use them on all my lenses. Definitely would reccomend this to anyone looking to try their hand with an ND filter without spending the money on a premium filter just yet.

Good products, great mission

This was my first time using an ND filter, I'm a complete novice and a hobbyist photographer. A lot of trial and error with setting the intensity of the stops between min and max. Maybe in the future I'll get a traditional hard stop ND filter so I don't have to fiddle around with the settings. All in all though, it was a fun experience. Always love testing new gear and GOBE's mission is pretty cool! I can't wait to try my variable ND filter in other settings. The pic below is what I achieved at the beach. An affordable ND filter ' worth every penny.

So sold on Gobe

I'm giving this five stars all around. I'm going to start by saying: I found Gobe on the 1% for the Planet site, which is what attracted me to them initially. As a hobbyist with landscape I decided to take the gamble and order the inexpensive Gobe filter just to try out and figured I'd just return it if it wasn't any good. Upon opening, my first impression was that the case for the filter, alone, was much nicer than the cases you get for filters twice or thrice as expensive. It's mostly rigid, thick, translucent plastic with hard foam inside (and it comes with a cleaning cloth!). The box hugs the case so I keep it in the box so I can reference the size easily. The filter itself is beefy and VERY well constructed. The threads do get a little sticky, as see other reviews say (but that comes with the price) so you might want a filter wrench. The "scratches" on the glass, that some reviews speak of ARE NOT SCRATCHES. IT'S JUST PROTECTIVE OIL!! I was able to breathe on the filter and wipe it clean with the included cloth. Now for the most important part: the image! I haven't worked with any other ND filters, so I can't tell you about the behavior of the stopping but the image itself is crisp as can be. I mean WOW! This filter makes some Bower filters that I've seen/used for twice the price look like pure and utter garbage. I can honestly tell you that I think I'll be using Gobe from now on, based on this filter alone. I might even just replace my perfectly functional CPL because I…
