For ND filters, it's truly hit or miss if you're not familiar with the brand. I'd suggest buying from seller with a easy return policy or shop local.

How do I tell if the filter is good or not?

The main concern for most people is unnecessary color cast. Also other things to consider are lost in sharpness and advertised stop usability (many ND filters state the filter can perform a max of x stops but in practice the max is usually unusable). If you want 8+ or more stops, I would just get a fixed 8 or 10 stop filter.

Can you please suggest me some cheap ND fitler (< $50) or Better ones to look in used market? I want to try taking pics with longer exposure. I bought 6D mark 2 and 17-40mm lens.

After watching numerous youtube videos where they did comparison of ND filters, I ended up going with Breakthrough Design X4 series. They are pretty expensive, but I got them in 77mm so I can use them with step-up rings with all my lenses.

After all, your pictures are going to be only as good as the cheapest piece of glass you are shooting through. I just invested into a7 iii and sel2470gm, so it seemed stupid to use that with $20 ND filters.

Not to say the filters OP posted are bad or a bad deal, just from my research Breakthrough Design X4 are the best bang for the buck, even though they are not cheap.

this guy gets it.


Edit: for those who want to freak, get a LEEs and youll never use a threaded filter again. $120 for the "big stopper" + $100 or so for a used mount.


or B+w for the quick and dirty 10x i think was like $65

On B&H, it got rather poor (3.5) reviews.

It's better to buy a square frame instead of circular and use the same filters on different lens that you may have using an adapter ring.

For the average consumer, buying a 77 or 82mm filter with step up rings are a better idea.

Have one of these. Worked well I thought. Colorcast was minimal in my opinion. Problem I have is when I was wiping it down with a microfiber cloth, the inner lens became unfastened and spun. Now it's way off, and I get cross polarization in the middle...
