The X4 VND is slightly more color neutral than the X2 VND (around 10%).

It has a greater density range (1.5-11 stops vs 2 to 9-stops).

It also has a slightly different design.


If you previously bought a X2 VND and would like to upgrade to the new X4 VND for $99.



"Filter shows tremendous color stability for a Variable ND. Only visible performance hit comes in at near maximum density of the filter range with subtle vignette encroaching. Correctable if it even represents an issue."

"Really loving the Breakthrough Filters preproduction X4 VND. Testing with my Sigma Art zooms and with 1.5-11 stops of ND, I can easily shoot at f1.8 in full sun and be confident that I will have NO color shift in my image."
