FILTERS

ND0.1

3X3 R08027

These filters reduce the amount of light passing through the camera lens without changing the color of the scene.  They are especially useful in bright light conditions to help prevent overexposure.  Neutral Density filters also allow proper exposure at a wider lens opening for reduced depth-of-field to highlight a key subject by making the foreground and/or background out of focus.

Eliminates overly bright, washed-out images

Balances exposure

Controls depth-of-field

Allows slower shutter speeds to produce blurred motion effects

Controlling contrast is difficult in bright sunlit exteriors. Exposing for either highlights or shadows will leave the other severely under-or over-exposed. Low Contrast filters create a small amount of "localized" flare near highlight areas within the image.  This reduces contrast by lightening nearby shadow areas, leaving highlights almost unchanged.
