REALPRO ND 32/64/100/200


ND (Neutral Density) filter decreases the amount of light entering the camera lens.

REALPRO ND 32/64/100/200 NEW

ND filter decreases the amount of light entering the camera lens. This allows to shoot with wide open diaphragm even in shiny day, to add motion blur to subjects and to extend time exposures.

Available sizes: 49, 52, 55, 58, 62, 67, 72, 77, 82mm

Neutral Density filters are the most commonly used along with C-PL and UV filters. These filters, instead of the ones that protect the lens from damage or UV pollution, were created to decrease the volume of the light entering the lens. True ND filters decrease light equally to achieve the same density through the all visual spectrum giving no changes in color balance of the image. That is why the called Neutral Density.

REALPRO-ND32.pngWhy ND filter is important

We are already entered in the era of super high sensitivity, super high resolution photographic equipment. Obviously, power of this huge sensor can be easily affected by lenses and other optical accessories that locates right on the path of the light entering the camera. In another words, quality of the filter that is the front “gate” for the light to get through is of big importance.  Especially, ND filters that became a MUST for high sensitive cameras with ISO settings that starts from 200 or 100. This is the reason that nowadays ND filters are an object of high attention and high quality requirements. Professional photographers requires ND filters that decrease the light volume in the most natural and harmless way. Canon-Camera.png

When to use ND 32/64/100/200 filters
Kenko REALPRO ND 32/64/100/200 present the highest quality of Neutral Density filters designed to use with latest DSLR high-sensitive cameras that will allow photographer to realize photos with shallow depth of field achieved by aperture wide open during the shiny day or with objects with blur motion. Kenko REALPRO ND 32/64/100/200 filters are recommended to use in landscapes, city snaps, video and nature genres during shiny day with widely opened diaphragm to prevent overexposure and achieve shallow depth of field when it is required to separate foreground object from background. At landscape photography the usage of ND32 (or higher) density filter is advised, although your choice depends of your personal purposes and work goals.

To choose ND filter with suitable density, use the spread-sheet below:

ND NUMBER F STOP REDUCTION % TRANSMITTANCE
32 5 3.125
64 6 1.563
100 6 2/3 1.000
200 7 2/3 0.500

The example of city snap showing the possibility of wide open diaphragm shooting with fine bokeh during shiny day aiming to separate foreground object from background combining surrounding objects in blur motion. This effect can be hardly achieve without ND filter.

Other examples of blur motion scenarios when REALPRO ND filters can be used.

ND Vacuum Deposition Technology
To achieve the best neutrality in the world Kenko REALPRO ND 32/64/100/200 filters adopts ND Vacuum Deposition Technology. According to this technology, neutral density is realized by ND substance that coated in the steam oven equally spreading over the filter glass surface.

Deposition-Vapoor-technology.jpgAs a result, compared with other brand ND filters, all Kenko REALPRO ND filters perform excellent neutrality through all visual light spectrum ensuring stable color balance of the image (ND4 as example).

ND Vacuum Deposition Technology also offers the solution to the problem of IR pollution that is also can be a reason for concern among photographers. During the sunny day with a lot of IR light in the atmosphere long shutter speed shooting may bring color changes of black, green or dark objects what can be seen with brown or reddish tint. Thanks to exhaustive efforts of Kenko engineers ND Vacuum Deposition Technology underwent incredible progress in neutrality, desirable light transmittance and IR controlling performance.

These two shots show the example of IR contamination when black objects like black suit and socks obtain brown reddish tint while leaves and trees became yellowish. * ISO is deliberately set to 3400 in order to make shutter speed shorter and avoid motion blur of the person.  

Anti-Reflection multi coating Usually sensors of digital cameras are more sensitive than film. That’s why highlights can affect the image, creating unwanted effects due to light refraction in the lens. Filters, as they are also optical elements, can make the situation even worse. That is why filters need anti-reflective coating. Kenko ND 32/64/100/200 filters adopts anti-reflective multi coating to eliminate even small chance of unwanted flares and ghosts in the image. 
Basic features Kenko REALPRO ND 32/64/100/200 filters has also the following additional features that will help photographer to achieve the best results.

To reduce to minimum any unwanted reflections Kenko REALRO ND adopts black aluminum satin finish almite frame. Satin finish will increase friction between fingers and frame for quick operation and satin black frame will minimize internal reflections.

UV Protected Case
Kenko REALRO ND filters comes with durable plastic case with UV-Cut function.
