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

Lee combination filters are like two filters in one. This filter is an 81EF warming filter combined with a graduated grey neutral density filter.

Certain Lee graduated neutral density filters are available with soft or hard transitions from dark to clear. The soft edge is recommended for wide angle lenses and the hard edge is recommended for normal and longer lenses.

Lee graduated resin filters are 4 x 6" (100 x 150mm) x 2mm thick. The 6" length allows for adjustment of the filter within the holder.

Neutral Density factors:

ND.3 (exposure adjustment = 1 stop)

ND.45 (exposure adjustment = 1.5 stops)

ND.6 (exposure adjustment = 2 stops)

ND.75 (exposure adjustment = 2.5 stops)

ND.9 (exposure adjustment = 3 stops)

        Comments about LEE Filters 4x6" Combination Graduated 81EF w/ ND 0.9 Resin Filter - Soft Edge:

        I use this for landscapes to balance the exposure of the sky to the land early or late in the day.
        One problem with a warming split ND - it is really good on cloudy/overcast days, but when there are no clouds it gives a magenta color cast to the sky.
