Digital Camera World Verdict

Using a screw on ND filter keeps things simple and minimizes the amount of kit you need to take with you. The slim tin supplied with the Urth ND1000 Filter Plus+ ensures that it’s kept nice and safe in your bag, so you won’t mind slipping it in just in case you come across a long exposure opportunity. And if you do, you’ll be rewarded with attractive images that have plenty of detail.

In late 2020, filter, strap and bag manufacturer Gobe rebranded as Urth. The new name reflects the fact that Urth is a community of creators who are inspired by the earth and who plan to plant 1 billion trees by 2032. The company aims to make a positive impact on the planet by making products from low-impact materials and following sustainable principles.

Urth makes an extensive range of filters, including 5 different strengths of circular neutral density filter running from ND4 (2 stops) to ND1000 (10 stops) reviewed here. There’s also an ND64 (6-stop) filter that combines the neutral density filtration with a circular polarizer.
