Just arrived from Premier Ink and Photographic my 77mm FaderND MkII from Light Craft Workshop. The best part of the filter apart from the variable ND is the fact that although it’s a 77mm thread the upper glass is 82mm giving you the ability to use wider lenses without vignetting.
This filter allows FS100 owners to film fully wide F2.8-f1.4 outdoors in daylight giving you a far better shallow depth of field. Some vary ND filters cause a colour shift when adjusting the ND, I have tested this and do not perceive any colour shift in the picture.
This filter is a Mark 11 second generation filter from Light Craft and gives you the equivalent of 9 stops.
I am very pleased with my filter and it’s about the right price £106 is not going to break the bank so much so I have ordered the 58mm ND Fader filter for my Nikon 50mm f1.4 lens for £57.
