DESCRIPTION

Our Variable ND8-128 Filter has a locking min and max setting and can be adjusted to block 3 to 7 f-stops of light, giving you more flexibility in variable light.

By blocking up to 7 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 ND8-128 Filter to create more cinematic effects in variable light.

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

How to Use

Variable ND8-128 (3-7 Stop) Filter 3Peak

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.

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.

"This works exactly as it should. It made all of my daytime footage pop. No details are lost – old architecture with clouds in the sky in the background sing. A no brainer that is worth every penny. Plus if you register on their site they plant trees for you." – Leon bought our ND8-128 3Peak.

Nice filter

Nice piece of kit, saves me from carrying varying strengths of ND filter. Works very well, feels quality built. I really like the stops that prevent a moir' pattern from forming. I have purchased quite a few Gobe filters, I really like their products.

As expected and plants trees

This works exactly as it should. Recently test drove it on our voyage through Europe and it made all of my daytime footage pop. No details are lost- old architecture with clouds in the sky in the background sing. A no brainer that is worth every penny. Plus if you register on their site they plant trees for you. Win!

Solid piece of kit

This product does exactly what it says on the description. Variable ND filter, which allowed me to achieve the effect I wanted with very little fuss. I bought the 2Peak version of this, due to the recommendation that the 1Peak version won't work as well on telephoto lenses. I've had no issues with this on my telephoto (though I never tried the single peak, so I can't confirm that it does cause problems). It's a nice, solid piece of kit with excellent smooth rotation.

Perfect for outdoor photography

Great so far, definitely needed this for outdoors. Great build quality and paired with the uurig adapter it is as simple as opening and closing a door rather than screwing the filter on and off everytime.
