ND Filter (neutral-density filter)

The Rollei Profi ND Filter is a rectangular-shaped, professional, neutral-density filter, suitable for the Pro Filter holder sets from Lee, Nisi, Cokin, Haida and Rollei, of course. The abbreviation ND stands for Neutral Density, which refers to light density. In colloquial speech, we also talk about “swallowing light”, since the ND filter also reduces the amount of incoming light. This produces a uniform darkening, which also explains the alternative name, “grey filter”.

High-quality glass processing

To obtain excellent photo quality, your photo equipment must, of course, be of high quality. This is why our Rollei Profi Rectangular Filters are made of real glass and processed to a high standard. The filters are made of fine, annealed H-K9L optical glass and are multiple-coated on both sides.

Because of the high-quality processing of the glass, these four quality features of Rollei Photo Filters are guaranteed and set new industry standards among the commonly used ND sets:

  1. High colour fidelity
  2. Low reflection
  3. HD optical glass
  4. Nano-tempering

ND Filter Strengths

The Rollei ND Filter is available in five different strengths. The ND8 Rectangular Filter has three Stops, as they are called, which means that the amount of light is reduced by three aperture stops, which in turn means that the exposure duration/shutter time increases eight-fold. With the ND1000 the amount of incoming light is reduced 10 aperture stops. Thus with ND filters the duration of exposure does not behave linearly but rather logarithmically.

The full range of strengths for the Rollei ND Filter is as follows ND8 (3 stops), ND64 (6 stops), ND512 (9 stops), ND1000 (10 stops), ND2000 (11 stops). This selection of strengths was developed by Rollei engineers in close collaboration with experienced filter photographers, taking into consideration both the competition and usability analyses.

Time exposure with ND filters

Many situations arise where it makes sense to use an ND filter, for example, with fluid movements that the human eye cannot perceive as such in an image. Newer cameras in particular are often extremely light-sensitive, which makes working with long shutter times a challenge. ND filters prevent over-exposure of your photos.

Patches of mist, rivers, waves, lakes, passing clouds – all of these are typical situations in which you can or should work with ND filters. Such fluid motion is captured by the long shutter time and at the same time light is “swallowed up” by the grey filter to create a soft and smooth image in which the motion is still able to be perceived.

ND photo filters in various sizes for different systems

ND filters are available for filter-holder sets from Rollei, Lee, Nisi, Cokin and Haida in widths of 70 mm, 100 mm, 150 mm and 180 mm. Filter sizes 150 mm and 180 mm correspond to individual lenses, while sizes 70 mm und 100 mm can be used more universally for different filter systems.
