Syrp ND Filter – Affordable Variable Neutral Density Filter
Check out Syrp’s latest product, a variable neutral density filter. The New Zealand based company are best known for their successful Kickstarter campaign – the Genie timelapse device. They’ve now entered the filter market with an affordable fader ND.
The filter comes in only two sizes, 67mm (small) and 82mm (large). Included with both filters are step up rings to expand compatibility with other thread sizes; the 82mm ships with 72mm & 77mm step ups, and the 67mm ships with 58mm & 52mm step ups.
What I like about the Syrp ND filter (which of course will be the most important aspect to all filmmakers) is the very smart leather pouch it ships with; nice.
Syrp claim the filter has an effective range of 1-8.5 stops adjustment.
Priced at $139 & $189 for the small and large filters respectively, it comes in at the middle range to others I’ve tested; I’ll be keen to try this one out against the Heliopan and the Tiffen filters.
