This Kenko neutral density filter reduces the amount of light that enters your camera's lens. In bright outdoor light, this allows you to use a larger aperture for a decreased depth of field — great for portraiture. Or use a slower shutter speed to blur moving objects; this creates an especially cool effect when photographing waterfalls. The filter also protects your lens from minor bumps and scratches.

Product Highlights:

  • protects lens from bumps, scratches, and dust
  • reduces the amount of light entering the lens, so you can:
    • use a wider aperture for a decreased depth of field
    • use a slower shutter speed to blur moving objects
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Great quality at low cost

Written By RobG, Virginia on Monday, February 02, 2015

I snapped this filter up while it was on sale. Having the ability to use a lower shutter speed even on the brightest days can transform a snap shot into a creative blur of motion. The construction was solid, the lens threaded very cleanly to my 50mm lens. The lens was distortion free. I recommend this filter for anyone who want to have the flexibility in bright light, or wants to experiment with longer shutter speeds.

Pros: Great value for the price

Cons: Non
