This 3-stop ND8 filter is great for videography use cases when controlling shutter speed for wider apertures in darker lighting scenarios such as dawn or dusk.
Neutral Density filters are the most commonly used along with C-PL and UV filters. These filters, instead of the ones that protect the lens from damage or UV pollution, were created to decrease the volume of the light entering the lens. True ND filters decrease light equally to achieve the same density through the all visual spectrum giving no changes in color balance of the image. That is why the called Neutral Density.
-Before & After ND Filter Effects-
Why ND filter is important?
We have already entered the era of super high sensitivity, super high resolution photographic equipment. Obviously, the power of this huge sensor can easily be affected by lenses and other optical accessories that are located right on the path of the light entering the camera. In other words, the filter quality serves as the front "gate" for the light to enter and is of the utmost importance.
In particular, ND filter have become a must for high sensitivity cameras with ISO settings that starts from 200 or 100. This is the reason that ND filter currently garner a high level of attention and have strict quality requirements. Professional photographers requires ND filters that decrease light volume in the most natural and harmless way.
GiAi ND8 present the highest quality of Neutral Density filter designed to use with latest DSLR high-sensitive cameras that will allow photographer to realize photos with shallow field of view achieved by aperture wide open during the shiny day or in over lighted conditions. GiAi ND8 filter is recommended to use in portrait, video and nature genres during shiny day where widely opened diaphragm to prevent overexposure and achieve shallow depth of field is required to separate foreground object from background.

Reduce Shutter Speed
ND filters allow videographers to dial in exposure in any lighting condition so they can shoot wide-open with shallow depth-of-field.
Long Exposure Filter
Heavy-stop NDs allow you to extend shutter speeds to extremely long lengths of time for creative photographic applications.
