82mm Variable ND Filter - 2-5 Stop

We’ve shot with a lot of Variable ND filters. They were either too expensive or the quality wasn’t there. None of them hit the sweet spot on affordability, functionality, and quality… so we made our own.

Available as a 2-5 stop or 6-9 stop, Moment Variable ND filters are the secret sauce to controlling your exposure. Made with premium Schott B270 Pro Cinema Glass, these filters are crisp edge to edge without color fringing or cross polarization. The filter rings are precision machined from aerospace grade metal, delivering the durability we expect when shooting. Our Variable ND Filters also feature a unique flared geometry unlike anything else on the market, allowing you to see your ND number from behind the viewfinder. This provides fast, precise control over your shots in tricky lighting, without moving from behind the camera. Made to shoot on the go, the filters also feature hard stops at both ends of the range to prevent unwanted cross polarization for the cleanest image possible.

What Is A Variable ND Filter?

Neutral Density filters are like sunglasses for your camera lens. A Variable does the same thing but it lets you adjust the strength of the filter by rotating the filter ring. This way, instead of carrying around multiple filters for different lighting conditions, you can carry just one and adjust for your specific shot. It’s the best way to perfectly expose your shot in any shooting scenario.

With the filter — Buttery smooth with dynamic range for cinematic motion

Without the filter — Jittery footage with unbalanced exposure

By letting in less light through the lens, you can slow down your shutter to create longer exposures in broad daylight. Dad photo alert!

Zero Cross Polarization


We specifically engineered the rotation of the filter to have hard stops at both ends of the working range, preventing unwanted cross polarization.

Aerospace Grade


The filter metal is machined from aerospace grade aluminum for lightweight performance and rugged durability.

Works With Your Gear


Not only do our Variable ND filters work with standard camera lens thread sizes, they also work with the standard center pinch lens caps you already have for your camera lens, unlike other options on the market.
