Daisee Variable ND PRO DMC SLIM Filter can take the place of a range of graded ND filters which saves money by only needing to buy one filter and saves time on location or on set by not needing to change filters constantly to change the effect, just turn the right to get the effect you want. Daisee Variable ND PRO DMC SLIM Filter puts you in control.
An example: The if your normal exposure without the filter is 1/250 of a second at f/11 the and you mount the filter and set it to the “Min” setting, then your exposure will be 1/90 of a second at the same f/11 or it could be 1/250 of a second a f/6.5 depending on which setting you want to control. If your desired effect is motion blur in the picture then turn the filter ring and watch your shutter speed drop in camera. At Max setting a shutter speed of 2 full seconds (9 stops) is possible at the same f/11 aperture.
This is an especially useful tool when creating motion blur in moving water such as waterfalls, rivers and crashing waves. Other examples of good times to use very slow shutter speeds to create blur are; moving vehicles, trains, cars and congested city traffic; blurred panning effects where the subject, a runner, cyclist or car is clear but the background around it is blurred from the camera following its movement
Variable Neutral Density filters, and ND filters in general have these main uses:
- Slow down shutter speed for motion blurring effects like waterfalls, cars or blurred panning movement to make the subject stand out from the background.
- Allow wider apertures to be used to decrease depth-of-field, literally focusing more attention on the subject.
- Allow higher ISO films to be used in brighter lighting conditions
- Allow cine/video cameras, which have a fixed shutter-speed range, to film on brighter lighting conditions such as the beach or in snow on a sunny day.
For best results Hoya recommends using a tripod when photographing with slow shutter speeds.
Superior Optical Technology
High quality optical glass is adopted for the production of all Daisee filters. Schott original optical glass is specially used for the professional Daisee Super Multi-coated filters series.
The optical glass has the function of anti-ultraviolet rays, which almost 100% light can go through within the visible spectral range. Reflection of light is less than 0.5%.
Daisee Testing Data indicates that:
Those filters without coating can reflect about 8% of the light, which hitting on the two air-contact surfaces of the glass; while the light loss of the multi-coated filters is only 0.5%. The multi-coating technology plays an excellent role in glare and light reflection. Daisee’s multi-coated filters decrease the possibility of glare and reflection from approximately 8% down to 0.5%, which means reflection is reduced 16 times.
Excellent Water & Oil Repellent Coating
DigitalMulti-Coating (DMC) of Daisee filter is not only an effective multi-layer coating, but also is durable enough to prevent the filter surface from being scratched.
The Characteristics of Water & Oil Repellent can effectively keep the filter clean and maintain the optical performance of the optical lens for a long time.
When testing this effect by an oil marker, the ink will be broken down into droplets by the coating.
UItra-Precision Thinnest Frame
Daisee adopted a new design where the filter glass is screwed into a high-precision retaining ring. This design can eliminate the possibility of loosening and maintain the balance of the filter, ultimately protecting both the filter and the lens.
All Daisee filters have adopted a unique packaging design, which is shock proof and drop resistant. It can effectively protect the filter, avoiding damage caused by external forces during handling and transportation.
