Schneider Optics 77mm True-Match Variable Neutral Density (ND) Filter
- 77mm True-Match Variable Neutral Density Filter
- Density range from 1-1/3 stop loss to 11 stops of light loss
- Single low profile filter
- Maximum ease of use and efficiency
- Rotating ring manipulates ND
The Schneider Optics 77mm True-Match Variable Neutral Density Filter is a perfect choice for wanting to minimize the amount of filters you have to carry with you when shooting with DSLR cameras.
This filter works by taking two carefully matched filters and stacking them in combination to produce a density range from 1-1/3 stop loss to 11 stops of light loss. By selecting the best quality materials, Schneider variable ND offer 11stops (ND3.3) attenuation with no blue color shift at maximum density which is a common problem with inferior and unmatched materials common in lesser variable ND filters.
The 77mm True-Match Vari-ND Thread-In is a single low profile filter with both True-Match Polarizing filters in the correct orientation for maximum ease of use and efficiency. The low profile ring prevents vignetting on most DSLR and Video Camera lenses. Simply turn the built in rotating ring to dial in the perfect amount of ND for your scene. Step rings are available in common sizes to adapt the 77mm size to smaller lens thread diameters.
Also available in a True-Match Vari-ND Filter Kit which uses the Schneider 4" Filter Holder and two True-Match Filters for increased filter stacking capabilities.

Please note: An anomaly may occur when using a Variable ND filter when shooting wide angle (50mm and below) near to or at the highest ND point on the filter. The anomoly can be a very dark area in the center of the image, or an ﾓX" pattern with lighter frame edges.
While all other manufactures only go up to a maximum of 8 stops Neutral Density, the Schneider Optics Vari-ND Filters boast a maximum of 11 stops ND. And because the anomaly only happens at the Max ND, no matter if the max of the filter is 6, 8, or 10 stops, that means when you use the Schneider Vari-ND filter at 8 stops, there is still no distortion in the image, where there would be in the competitorﾒs filter that maxes out at 8 stops.
For optimal performance, we always recommend using these filters on manual exposure. Vari-ND filters are best used for video capture at any aperture or wide aperture, high shutter speed still shooting. Schneider Optics does not recommend Vari-ND filters for smaller aperture, long exposure still shooting.
