THK Photo Product, Inc announces the new HOYA PRO1 Digital ND16 Neutral Density filter.
The ND16 is a dark neutral density filter with a filter factor of 16, meaning there is 4 stop light loss. This is a great filters for slowing down shutter speeds to capture motion. An example: In daylight, maybe the slowest shutter speed possible without a filter could be 1/60 sec at F/22 By adding the HOYA PRO1 ND16, a shutter speed of 1/4 sec would be possible.
Another use of the ND16 would be controlling depth of field. With a strong ND16, a much wider aperture can be used. Wide apertures like F/1.4 and F1.8 create a very shallow depth of field and have the effect of isolating the subject from the background. Creative possibilities are endless with this type of filter.
The HOYA PRO1 Digital ND16 has all the features of the PRO1 Digital series such as DMC multi-coating to reduce reflections and a low profile
