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. Hitech Grad ND filters are part clear, part neutral density (available in grades of .3 (1 stop), .6 (2 stops), .9 (3 stops), 1.2 (4 stops)). They allow the transition to be blended into the scene, often imperceptibly. A neutral density .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.

Hitech 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.

This filter measures 85 x 107mm and fits the Cokin P series holder.

Neutral Density factors:

ND.3 (exposure adjustment = 1 stop)

ND.6 (exposure adjustment = 2 stops)

ND.9 (exposure adjustment = 3 stops)

ND1.2 (exposure adjustment = 4 stops)

Comments about Formatt Hitech 85mm Graduated ND 0.3 Resin Filter - Hard Edge - for Cokin P:

The commonly repeated line on the internet forums these days is that the Hitech filters are better than Cokin. Don't believe it. I recently purchased ND grad filters from both companies, and in my opinion, the Cokins are a better value. For one thing, the material itself is no better on the Hitechs, and in fact came more warped than the Cokins. The Hitechs have notched corners which, while slightly easier to fit into the P holder, are trickier to get out of the case (I much prefer handling the Cokin squared corners). Speaking of which: the Cokin case is much more protective, while with the Hitech you get a cheap plastic envelope. Much is made of a color cast in the Cokins, but if there is one I couldn't see it. The only advantage to the Hitech, and the reason I bought 2 of them, is that they have a slightly harder edge. Both brand of filters are dust and scratch magnets and will drive you crazy cleaning them. I wish there were a better solution.
