The Deal Digest: Filters Galore! Hoya Variable ND $100 Off

By Anthony Thurston on August 28th 2014

Today is all about filters, and our headliner deal this time around is $100 off an 82mm  Hoya variable neutral density. If you want to learn more about ND filters, and how Variable ND filters compare, check out our latest Gear Talk episode.


We have deals ranging from $40 to over $130 on some great filters from various brands. Filters aren’t necessarily the most glamorous thing to spend your money on, certainly not the most exciting, but as mentioned in our Gear Talk post, they can really take your work to the next level.

Also, these are Instant Savings, so no mail in rebates to worry about.

Filters, Filters, and More Filters…

Many of the deals listed above are only available in a limited quantity, so if interested, I suggest that you jump on it as soon as possible so that you don’t miss out on the savings. You can find more great filter deals over on B&H here.

Also, make sure to check out our previous Deal Digest posts, many of those deals are still active as well….

    Can someone give me the TLDR / TLDW on whether or not we reviewed that Hoya variable ND, and if it was good enough for use? I know that Hoya in general is one of the decent value brands, compared to the complete crap that is Tiffen. Some Hoya stuff is even on par / better than Heliopan / B+W, I’ve heard…

      I don’t think we have reviewed the Hoya branded Variable ND specifically. Might be worth a shot, its about the same price as the Syrp one that you guys are drooling over…

      I was wondering the same thing. The only place that I found decent reviews was on Amazon. A few people commented on how after about 4 stops an “X” shaped pattern showed up in the images.

      I’ve been using the Hoya variable for a while.
      It’s good but you can’t fully stop it down as then you get that cross hatching “x” in the middle of your shot but that’s normal with filters of this type.
      It’s good up to about 3/4 or a little bit more stopped down.
      I’m not sorry I picked up mine.
