33% off a range of Variable ND Filters from 37mm to 86mm
these are rubbish, dont waste your money.
Is just the Variable ND Filter your referring to or all Gobe ND Filters? (looking at 10 stop ND)
All gobe filters.
Thanks, I might check out Hoya instead
I’ve tried this and a different brand and they don’t do crap .
Gobe filters are worse than even the kfconcept filters ive got. Dont buy, the minimum should be a hoya filter.
Agreed, Hoya filters are quite a bit more expensive but the results are more than worth the extra money that you pay for them.
Should I buy the same size as my lens, or should I buy the biggest nd filter they sell and buy a step up adapter for my lens? And if lowest prices were a concern which nd filter should I buy?
Buying larger filters can supposedly introduce issues with lens flaring and if your lens has a hood that attaches directly to it youll run into issues. Personally i havent noticed too many issues with step up rings, but im not a pro photographer or anything. As long as its not like 80mm to 45mm or something ridiculous it should be fine. My filters are usually 68mm and i step down to a 49mm lens on occassion. Lowest prices, really you can get nd for under 80 dollarydoos from hoya. I think they have a 3 pack for 120 that you can stack to get all sorts. If youre on an ultra budget kfconcept are "ok" but by no means great. Still better than goya.
How about a hoya variable density filter.
@AustriaBargain: Havent used their vnd filters before, only the cpl filter. My understanding is vnd filters arent good because youll get cross patterns appearing at the higher stop levels. Basically useless past 4nd . Good for video though, if you need to change quickly, but yeah useless for photography.
@Jenny Death: If i want to use for video and photos then how many filters should I buy. Three enough? For photos mostly just for adjusting backgrounds and video, so I can fix it at a certain shutter speed and ISO in very bright situations, stuff like that.
@AustriaBargain: Depends what youre shooting, you might even get away with no filter, or even just a cpl since it provides a stop of nd and can help with reflections. Very bright if you mean midday summer sun youll want to build up to around nd 16.
terrible, do not buy.
you are better off with this deal - https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/573226
Gobe is known to produce low quality filters that aren't worth the price and furthermore variable ND filters are far worse than fixed ND filters, especially cheap variable ND filters.
