Product Highlights
  • 2 Stop Graduated ND Filter
  • Reduce Exposure in Selective Areas
  • Soft-Step Graduation
  • CR-39 Optical Resin
  • Compatible with Cokin Z-Pro Holder

The Singh-Ray 100 x 150mm Galen Rowell 0.6 Soft-Edge Graduated Neutral Density Filter helps to specifically darken skies and other bright areas of the image. The filter is densest at the edge and tapers to clear by the middle, with a soft-edged transition line between the density and clear areas. By having only a portion of neutral density on the filter, you can selectively darken areas of an image while allowing the portion of the image within the clear section to receive the normal amount of exposure. Neutral density filters do not affect the coloration of the image and the 0.6 density provides a 2 stop reduction in light from entering the lens.

Singh-Ray rectangular filters are constructed from CR-39 optical resin for high image clarity and overall durability. This filter is compatible with the Cokin Z-Pro filter holder and measures 3.9 x 5.9" / 100 x 150mm.

            Large enough to use with every lens. Like the graduated edge as it helps with blending. The 2-stop filter is a good compromise between too light and too dark.

                  Use it for landscapes. I haven't used it may times but, resin is of good optical quality.
                  What I didn't like was that B&H sent me these filters in a bubble wrap envelope and I saw that this filter was slightly bent. I don't know if it is because of the packaging or not, but I hope that B&H ships filters and such in a box instead of an envelope and these envelopes can be easily bent.
                  Having said that, the bend is not affecting my use case, so I didn't bother return it.

                                    I love this thing. I have several Lee 1-stop filters and due to unavailability of stock, I was forced to go with the more expensive Singh-Ray route for the 2 stop filter. Despite the higher price, I am ecstatic about this filter. Gorgeous with no flaws right out of the case, unlike the Lee filters. Nice convenient pouch included so the filter doesn't get scratched or dirty. Seeing the difference in quality and how it translated to the camera, I doubt I could go back to buying Lee brand filters. This is worth every cent I paid for it.

                                      I have only used this a couple of times holding it by hand, but already I can see a much nicer exposure balance between my foreground and the sky. First graduated ND filter and so far I have no complaints.

                                          The soft edge is great for tricky land/sky meetings. Very clear, sturdy, easy to hand-hold. I would recommend getting a filter holder if you plan on lng exposures though.

                                          If you want to shoot slides or want to tame the highlights in digital, Grad filters are the way to go. Singh-Ray provides the best quality filters that do not create any color cast and are true to their stated f-stop.
                                          The 4x6 size also is very helpful to hand hold the filter w/o the annoying filter-holders

                                              I use this filter for landscape photography. The soft step GND enables one to shoot scenes with uneven horizons. Image colors are accurate with no color cast.

                                                          This is the best one in market. I did try with some other cheap brand by renting them but once I got this I never looked back. It does exactly what t says. Do read the 1 page pamphlet that comes in the pack. That's much more worthy than it seems.

                                                          But one thing, this is not that great for APSC sensor as the graduation is too smooth with respect to the cropped sensor. But I got this because I am gearing up towards the full frame. I can't even take half a star off because of my own problem.

                                                              Photography is all about capturing and controlling the light and the singh ray ND filters help me to do just that.

                                                              I use this filter to even the exposure range of an image to within the ability of the camera sensor. This allows me to capture an image of a scence where the sky and foreground elements are both properly exposed. If you are tired of taking pictures and having the sky being blown out or the foreground underexposed than this is what you have been looking for.

                                                              I position the filter so that the darkest graduation is toward the lightest section of the image. This allows the lighter section to be lowered by two exposure stops and thereby bringing the whole scence into proper exposure.

                                                              If you are deciding between 1, 2 and 3 stop and soft vs hard here are some recommendations. While of course owning all 6 would be great I have found the 2 stop soft and 3 stop reverse grad to be the most useful. The 2 stop soft is my most used as it gradualing goes from clear to 2 stop and the transition zone remains almost hidden in the image. This is important if you are taking pictures of mountains at sunrise or any area that is not a linear sharp transition such as a sunrise over the ocean. In the event of taking sunrise images over the ocean the 3 stop reverse ND filter works wonderfully. As this filter has its darkest transition in the middle of the filter and transitions to about 1 stop as it goes toward the top of the filter.

                                                              Why 4x6 and not Cokin p size. The 4x6 size filters allow me to hand hold the filter and my fingers are not in the image and the 4x6 filters do not cause vignetting on my ultra wide angle lenses like the canon 16-35 L II. The lee filter holder works wonderfully when I have the time to attach the holder and work the composition but during those times when I don't have time as the light is changing I can also quickly grab the filter and holder it in front of the lens as needed.
