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. A GND .6-to-clear, with a two stop differential, will generally compensate the average bright sky-to-foreground situation and is also the most popular density of the series.

Graduated Neutral Density factors:

GND.3 (exposure factor = 2x; exposure adjustment = 1 stop; reduces ISO 1/2)

GND.6 (exposure factor = 4x; exposure adjustment = 2 stops; reduces ISO 1/4)

GND.9 (exposure factor = 8x; exposure adjustment = 3 stops; reduces ISO 1/8)

          This filter is graduated very tightly; the change is too abrupt to be useful. I would return it if it were not too late. Well-built but poorly described.

            Comments about Heliopan 77mm Graduated Neutral Density (ND) 0.6 (4x) Filter:

            I have never found a need to use a graduated filter until I purchased my 77mm ND 0.6. Now I feel like I must use it no matter what. A fantastic filter to use, Easy screw on and to adjust. Granted you must line up with the horizon to receive the best shot possible, or locate your area to split if no true horizon is visible. With practice , the 0.6 is fun to say the least. It darkens the sky and lightens the foreground. There are so many applications to use this filter.

            Comments about Heliopan 77mm Graduated Neutral Density (ND) 0.6 (4x) Filter:

            This is definitely the right density (0.6) to render a naturally defined sky. However, this filter adds a blue cast also over the clear bottom half of the filter.
            On my 24mm lens, there was significant vignetting.
            The filter ring needs to be marked to positively identify the position, but that can be added by the owner.
            The filer arrived soiled by foam rubber particles from the packaging. Do not wipe that off, it is hard to clean. Use a blower instead!

              This filter is just what was missing, from my gear! It performs beautifully! Living in the Pacific Northwest, and having access to so much water (waterfalls, rivers, lakes, etc.) it goes everywhere my camera goes.

                It did everything I needed it to when I photographed Lake Superior on vacation. It helped me to balance bright water or bright skies. Heliopan is a brand I trust.
