Our ND filters Wolverine K100 100x100 mm series from Kase

The Kase Wolverine K100 Neutral Density Filters in the size 100x100 mm are excellent for adjusting the amount of light that passes through to the camera sensor. The resulting longer exposures can be used, for example, to capture the movement of clouds or to draw water silkily. Due to the different strengths, graded in ND16, ND64 and ND1000, there should be the right filter for every situation you find. Below you will find a ready-made table as well as a recommendation in which situation you should use which filter and what effect it has on the exposure time.

The Kase Wolverine series scores with excellent colour neutrality. This is due to the high-precision optical glass we use, which is also very shatterproof. In addition, the filters are very easy to clean thanks to an oil- and water-repellent coating. If you don't have a filter holder for your lens yet, you can find one together with the filters in our kits or separately in the category filter holder.

What is a ND or grey filter?

ND in ND filter stands for Neutral Density. This means that a grey filter should attenuate all colour ranges or wavelengths of the visible spectrum of light equally.

Apart from the exposure time and the aperture, the grey filter is an additional means that can be used to regulate the strength of the light that hits the camera sensor as desired.

That is why ND filters come in different strengths. Depending on how much light the photographer wants to let pass through the lens onto the camera sensor. The different strengths can be described in different ways. For example, it is said that a filter darkens by three f-stops or increases the exposure time eightfold. In American-speaking countries, the degree of neutral density of the filter is often given instead. In this case it would be 0.9, as you will find in the table below for our ND filters.

What effects can be achieved with a grey filter?

Besides the possible long time exposures, there are many other applications of ND filters which we would like to explain to you in the following:

  • As already mentioned, this type of filter is primarily used for longer exposure times or long exposures.
  • Another application is, for example, to make the flowing water in a stream look velvety. Or also with waterfalls (which can be depicted in a more interesting way) or a lake (which can be smoothed by several seconds of exposure).
  • But also in city photography, for example when a tourist place is to be photographed and people can be made to "disappear" with the help of an ND filter.
  • Or also to achieve a wiping effect with clouds in the picture.
  • As a general rule, it can be said that a grey filter is always used when you either need longer exposure times during the day or want to have it for a certain image effect.

Calculating the shutter speed when photographing with an ND filter

Calculating the appropriate shutter speed with an ND filter is a fairly simple task that requires only a few steps and for which a calculator is an advantage. In addition, we recommend that you always work with a tripod, because with exposure times of several seconds, the image without a tripod is blurred for most photographers. To give you an idea of the steps involved, we have listed them below:

  1. First, install all filters except the ND filter, i.e. the polarising filter and, if necessary, the GND filter. Then take a correctly exposed test shot as you like and note the exposure time. For example, 1/30 second.
  2. Then add a grey filter, for example the Kase ND1000 100x100 mm. The 1000 indicates how often the previously determined shutter speed must be multiplied as soon as the filter is mounted, because 1000 times less light falls on the camera sensor. Therefore, the shutter speed is increased by a factor of 1000.
  3. If you have a shutter speed of a fraction of a second, as is the case here, it is best to give the value in seconds first. Because 1/30 of a second is equal to 0.0334 seconds.
  4. This value is then multiplied by 1000, which means 0.034 x 1000 = 33.4 seconds. This is then the new shutter speed needed to get a shot with the same exposure with the ND1000 grey filter. In the camera's standard mode, for example, 30 seconds can be used, which is the closest value that can be set. Or with the help of a timer remote control, an exposure of 34 seconds can then also be set.

Which ND filter strengths should I buy and when should I use them?

There are generally three different filter strengths used in photography. These are ND16, ND64 and ND1000 filters. The ND16 filter darkens 4 f-stops, the ND64 filter 6 f-stops and the ND1000 10 f-stops. In general, it can be said that the exposure time is approximately doubled per f-stop. This means that the ND16 filter produces sixteen times the exposure time and the ND64 sixty-four times.

The different filters are designed to take the best possible pictures in different situations and at different times of the day. In addition to the grey filters, there are also so-called polarising filters. These do not reduce the incidence of light, but serve to prevent reflections. Especially with green and blue colour gradations, i.e. primarily in landscape photography, polarising filters are frequently encountered. 

In which situation is which neutral density filter used?

Filter 

Situation 

ND8 Filter 

The ND8 filter is used on sunny days and under slightly cloudy skies.

ND64 Filter 

The ND64 filter is used for snowy landscapes on sunny days, reflective water surfaces or similar.

ND1000 Filter 

The ND1000 filter is mainly used in landscape photography to create blurred clouds and soft water.
