Aurora Aperture today introduced the PowerXND 2000 variable ND filter family.
The PowerXND 2000 offers eleven stops of light reduction capacity which previously has been only available in fixed neutral density filters. “ND filters are popular among landscape photographers and videographers for reducing amount of light,” said Jinfu Chen, founder and CEO of Aurora Aperture Inc.
“Variable ND filters are useful as they can replace multiple fixed ND filters. However, the variable ND filters in the market today typically have 6+ usable stops, whereas users often demand more stopping power: such as 10 or more stops. Our PowerXND 2000 family of variable ND filters will be able to satisfy this requirement with additional benefits such as superior image quality that rivals fixed ND filters and a slim frame profile to prevent vignetting in wide angle lenses.”
The Aurora PowerXND 2000 filter will be available through Kickstarter crowdfunding in February 2016, and to general public as well as dealers in Summer 2016. List prices will start from $159.
