Midwest Optical Systems (Palatine, IL, US), a leader in machine vision filters, has launched the NS100 Neutral Density Filter Swatch Kit.
The company says that testing is now easier than ever with the kit which includes all of the most popular ND Filters and allows a user to stack multiple ND Filters to achieve a custom optical density.
Created to be a great tool to have in the field, or in a laboratory, to test the effects of ND Filters, it aims to solve applications quickly and improve image quality.
Recognized in the industry as ‘sunglasses for your system,’ neutral density filters are designed to reduce light intensity neutrally over a specific wavelength range without affecting image color or contrast.
They also serve, says MidOpt as a great solution for lens aperture control and reducing depth of field.
Available in both absorptive and reflective style options, they can be used with monochrome or color cameras. The NS100 ND Filter Swatch Kit includes 43mm size filters and no mounting is required. Each kit includes an ND030 (OD: 0.3), ND060 (OD: 0.6), ND090 (OD: 0.9), ND120 (OD:1.2), ND200 (OD:2.0), ND300 (OD: 3.0) and ND400 (OD: 4.0).
