We’ve shot with a lot of Variable ND filters. They were either too expensive or the quality wasn’t there. None of them hit the sweet spot on affordability, functionality, and quality… so we made our own.

Available as a 2-5 stop or 6-9 stop, Moment Variable ND filters are the secret sauce to controlling your exposure. Made with premium Schott B270 Pro Cinema Glass, these filters are crisp edge to edge without color fringing or cross polarization. The filter rings are precision machined from aerospace grade metal, delivering the durability we expect when shooting. Our Variable ND Filters also feature a unique flared geometry unlike anything else on the market, allowing you to see your ND number from behind the viewfinder. This provides fast, precise control over your shots in tricky lighting, without moving from behind the camera. Made to shoot on the go, the filters also feature hard stops at both ends of the range to prevent unwanted cross polarization for the cleanest image possible.

What Is A Variable ND Filter?

Neutral Density filters are like sunglasses for your camera lens. A Variable does the same thing but it lets you adjust the strength of the filter by rotating the filter ring. This way, instead of carrying around multiple filters for different lighting conditions, you can carry just one and adjust for your specific shot. It’s the best way to perfectly expose your shot in any shooting scenario.

With a Variable ND Filter

Without a Filter

Premium Glass

We chose Schott B270 Pro Cinema Glass to maintain maximum optical quality and create crisp images.

A New Level of Control

Our unique geometry and laser etched graphics allow you to see which stop you’re shooting from behind the viewfinder. This allows for faster control and easy starting points for your shots in different lighting conditions.

Zero Cross Polarisation

We specifically engineered the rotation of the filter to have hard stops at both ends of the working range, preventing unwanted cross polarisation.

Aerospace Grade

The filter metal is machined from aerospace grade aluminum for lightweight performance and rugged durability.

Works With Your Gear

Not only do our Variable ND filters work with standard camera lens thread sizes, they also work with the standard center pinch lens caps you already have for your camera lens, unlike other options on the market.

The 67mm VND also works with our 67mm Filter Mount so you can take your mobile videos to the next level.
