Product features

Prevent washed-out images in macro shooting

When shooting a subject from close range, using open aperture or higher ISO setting etc. would give you overexposed images by too much strobe light. Using the -4.0 ND Filter for S-2000* reduces strobe output at 4.0EV and dramatically helps not to have overexposed images.

Constant color balance even through the filter

Thanks to carefully designed -4.0 ND Filter for S-2000 to manage color balance of strobe light transmitted through it, tint of native strobe light and tint of strobe light through the filter is almost same. The -4.0 ND Filter for S-2000 is designed to reduce strobe power at 4.0EV and successfully reproduces natural color of a subject.

Superior heat transmittance

The -4.0 ND Filter for S-2000 is made of special material which carries significantly high infrared ray transmittance not to keep generated heat inside of the combined strobe but to offer same sequential flash performance without the filter and to reduce strobe output at 4.0EV at the same time.

Provide further faint Manual flash

The S-2000 strobe originally offers 13steps with 1/2EV increments Manual flash mode. Using The -4.0 ND Filter for S-2000 adds extra faint power settings for further creative lighting.
