X2 Neutral Density Filters

Sharper and more colour neutral than B+W, Formatt-Hitech and Lee Filters. 100% Guaranteed

The X2 ND features incredibly sharp H-K9L optical glass made in Japan and incorporates our state-of-the-art nanotec® Nano Coatings and MRC8 to eliminate unwanted glare and ghosting which easily get compounded at long exposures. Our advanced thin-film coatings ensure color neutrality across the visible spectrum and into infrared - guaranteed.

Colour neutral with precise optical density.

Colour neutrality can be visualized on a spectral graph by the flatness of the transmission curve. The flatter the curve, the more colour neutral the filter. The X2 ND outperforms the leading ND filters by maintaining a neutral performance throughout the visible range and into infrared. Average light transmission is an important metric to evaluate filter performance. An ideal 10-Stop (3.0) ND filter allows 0.1% light transmission across the visible spectrum. At 0.085%, the X2 ND provides photographers and filmmakers an accurate baseline to set up shot

All-new frame design eliminates vignetting.

The X2 ND has an ultra-slim, double-threaded design which eliminates vignetting on wide-angle, full-frame setups. With its matte black, anodized finish, the X2 frame also reduces reflections by absorbing light rather than directing it into the lens barrel.

We engineer each filter to withstand a lifetime of use in the field. Our X2 are CNC machined from  aluminium 6061 with our patented traction frame. The knurled design provides more grip to attach and remove the filter - even with gloves in cold conditions.

Fully equipped for the great outdoors.

The X2 NDs form a weather-seal on the lens and are built to withstand extreme wind, salt water, dust and any other abrasive elements found in nature.

The X2 ND also features our state-of-the-art 8-layer Multi-Resistant Coating (MRC8) and our nanotec© Nano Coatings which combine to improve optical performance and durability.

Built to last. Guaranteed.

We stand behind every filter we make with our 25 Year Ironclad Guarantee. Our team spent years developing each aspect of the filter to maintain optical performance and reliable function for a lifetime of use. So we guarantee that our filters will remain free from manufacturers defects for 25 years from the date of purchase.

Every filter has a unique serial number laser engraved onto the frame. When you activate your 25 Year Ironclad Guarantee, we assign this number to you.

After activation, if you ever need to contact us for support, you won’t need your purchase information or receipt again. This allows us to resolve any issues quickly and any feedback you provide to us about your filter can go directly into future products.
