Description

Often, you want to balance light intensity between two areas within a scene. This is important outdoors to allow more sky detail while properly exposing the foreground. Exposing for the foreground will produce a washed-out, over-exposed sky, exposing for the sky will leave the foreground dark, underexposed.

  • Part clear, part neutral density, with a smoothly graded transition between
  • A Color-Grad ND.6-to-clear is often best for balancing sky to foreground
  • Neutral gray appearance drops exposure

Filter Thoughts

This is a good filter. It does what I want it to do. This makes shots of views with a wide range of light possible.

A must have filter if you take a lot of landscape photography. This filter will help darken the sky so your pictures will be more evenly exposed. I'm going to be stacking this filter with a hoya hd3 polarizer really soon :)

A wonderful filter for landscapes with a lot to love

I love using my Zeiss Touit 12mm on my Fuji X-E2, and I'm often shooting outdoors in daylight. While the camera produces images with a great deal of dynamic range, especially at lower ISOs and the lens allows such lower ISOs, I'm always looking for ways to produce better images. Using a graduated ND filter allows me to offset the inherent brightness of the sky and focus exposure on the rest of the scene. It doesn't give me more dynamic range per se, rather it allows me to use what I have where I want to use it. This is the real benefit of this (and other graduated ND filters), which cannot be replicated in post processing (you can darken the sky, but that's not the entirely point). This particular filter works well in this regard. It stays clean, rotates smoothly but not too easily, and it's easy to align with my lens (typically in landscape rather than portrait orientation). It's also clear and free of any color cast (thus the neutral in ND) and readily holds on to a lens cap. It's not perfect, as I'd prefer a slightly thinner profile (while still holding on to a normal lens cap), a black color, and a clearer indication of orientation. Those faults don't impact my images, so I'm rather forgiving. Pros: One of the remaining filters that cannot be replicated in post processing (this does far more than darkening skies) Clear and free of color cast Stays clean and smudge free Rotates smoothly but stays in place Cons: Pricey (when over $100, but a better deal when $80 or so) Could be thinner (I didn't see vignetting on my 12mm lens) and grey color an odd decision I'd prefer the B+W XS-Pro to this, but I got this for quite a bit less ($75), but there's a lot to love here.
