Having recently taken up iphone videography, I quickly realised that quality footage depends on being able to control the shutter speed. This filter allow that with ease on the Wide, Zoom and even, in situations where a slight vignette is not noticeable or off-putting, on Ultra Wide. I’m really pleased with it and have just purchased the compatible anamorphic lens to further explore what’s possible in a pocket-sized setup. Check out my recent video for a flavour of what this can do (the older clips in the piece, while good and more than serviceable — equipment will always be second to content — are nowhere near as attractive and smooth as those with the ND on. https://youtu.be/VMu5FuztdOc
As expected, the filter made with high care
I was in the market for a ND filter for my iPhone XS, and wanted a more cinematic look to my video. I wanted to be able to control my ISO and my shutter speed and not have the quality blow out. I had been on the site many times and was about to pick up the hybrid ND/ PL Filter, but then the day I was going to purchase, they had announced this filter, which is perfect for what I want to do. I shoot production videos and now use Filmic Pro and have a Osmo mobile 2. When making my choice weight was something I had a concern with. So I choose to go with the clip over camera. And happy I did. The quality on this lens is A+++ It’s Heavy and extremely well built. It’s extremely easy to move from the 4 stops of ND and easy to read when looking to see what stop your on. I even got some great lens flares in my shoot. I highly recommend this lens if your looking to move to a next level of products. I tested it on cars driving by and got a nice motion blur, which is what I wanted. This was my first buy, but won’t be the last!!!
