Syrp has developed a new Super Dark Variable ND filter that offers between five and 10 stops of adjustable exposure control and can be used for shooting stills and movies.

The Super Dark is available in two sizes: 82 mm and 67 mm. Included in each Filter Kit is two step up rings to fit the Large 82mm or Small 67mm filter to smaller diameter lenses. The Large Filter includes 77mm & 72mm step up rings and the Small includes 58mm & 52mm step up rings. Each Super Dark ND filter includes an adjustable exposure of 5-10 stops of light (ND32-ND1024) and the stops are clearly marked on the filter. Hard stops at each end of the range let users quickly set the minimum and maximum values while preventing X-Pattern at the extreme end. The front of the Filter has a thread that accepts other filters if needed. It will also accept a regular lens cap.
For stills photographers, the Super Dark Variable ND filter reduces the light entering the camera, allowing very slow shutter speeds to be used. This enables moving subjects to be rendered with a smooth and attractive blur. Shooting time-lapse with fast shutter speeds causes the moving elements to flicker and stutter between frames, which can be distracting. Using the Super Dark Variable ND filter enables longer exposure times to blur moving objects and help blend movement between frames to add a more natural look and feel.
Both the Small and Large Filter Kits come with a genuine leather carry case to house the Filter and ensure it stays protected from dust and scratches. It also includes a lens cloth.
