The 72mm Graduated Neutral Density (ND) 0.6 (4x) Filter from Heliopan has several uses and offers the possibility to achieve otherwise unachievable results. ND filters appear gray and reduce the amount of light reaching the film. They have no effect on color balance. Neutral Density filters permit you to control your depth of field by permitting you to use wider apertures. They also allow you to create some stunning "burred" images such as rippling streams, moving traffic or birds in flight.

Often it is necessary or desirable to balance the light intensity in one part of a scene with another. This is especially true in situations where you don't have total light control, as in bright contrasty landscapes. Exposing for the foreground will produce a washed-out, over-exposed sky while exposing for the sky will leave the foreground dark and under-exposed.

Grad ND filters are part clear, part neutral density (available in grades of .3 (1 stop), .6 (2 stops), .9 (3 stops)). They allow the transition to be blended into the scene, often imperceptibly.

Heliopan has been a leader in the filter industry since 1949. They are known for their high quality and production standards. Their slim mounts facilitate using them with wider angle lenses. Heliopan offers most of their filters with either their standard hard coating or with their industry leading SH-PMC 16 layer multi-coating that transmits over 99.5% of the light striking it on to the image plane for the lowest flare and greatest color saturation.

Neutral Density Filters Have Four Main Uses

To enable slow shutter speeds to be used, especially with high speed films, to record movement in subjects such as waterfalls, clouds, or cars
To decrease depth of field by allowing wider apertures to be used, which helps separate subjects from their background
To decrease the effective ISO of high speed film (above ISO 400) and allow it to be used outdoors in bright situations
To allow cine and video cameras (which have fixed shutter speeds) to film subjects such as snow, sand or other bright scenes which could cause overexposure

          Comments about Heliopan 72mm Graduated Neutral Density (ND) 0.6 (4x) Filter:

          When the filter is on top of something white, I can see where the ND side is, but I cannot tell when it is on the lens. I think I'll make a mark on the spot that should go on top.

            Heliopan is one of the few quality suppliers of quality photo gear. I purchased this accessory because I do a great deal of photography in the mountains where there is sharp division between the sky, or sun or both but where there are dark trees and shadows. I am very pleased.

              We now use only heliopan filters and are very happy with the quality. We take pictures in a lot of natural parks and use many different filters. The optical quality is really good and the consistency is great.
