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

The Singh-Ray 100 x 150mm Galen Rowell 0.9 Hard-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 hard-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 0.9 density provides a 3 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.

        This is a must have for any photographer who is looking to capture landscape photos and balace out the skies exposure. They aren't cheap but they are durable and have accurate color. I hand hold mine but sometimes it is definitely useful to have a mount. Also, beware of fingerprints on the filter because those will show up on the photos as smudges.

          Comments about Singh-Ray 100 x 150mm Galen Rowell 0.9 Hard-Edge Graduated Neutral Density Filter:

          Every time I purchase a Singh-Ray filter I always myself if I should really be spending that much money on a filter when there are much cheaper options out there. But then when I receive it and put it to use I am reminded why. These filters are well respected in the community for a reason. There is no perceivable color cast especially compared to some of the cheaper options and the construction is top notch. Even though they are made of resin, they are incredibly high quality in terms of optical quality. They work great with my Cokin Z-pro holder or just hand held in front of the lens. The 4x6 (Z-Pro) size is much easier to use with wide angle lenses and also easier to use handheld especially in cold weather where you may be using gloves when compared to the Cokin-P size filters. But you do pay a premium for the larger size. Thankfully I am certain that the quality of these filters means I will have them for years and years.

                  Comments about Singh-Ray 100 x 150mm Galen Rowell 0.9 Hard-Edge Graduated Neutral Density Filter:

                  I use this filter mostly for landscapes when there is a marked difference in brightness between the sky and the rest of the picture. The "hard" edge is difficult to see and blends nicely, as long as it is placed slightly below the horizon. There is also hardly any color cast. I often combine it with a solid neutral density or a circular polaraizer and, as expected, did not see any vigneting coming from this filter. I use it handheld or inserted in a Hitech holder (have used as well with a Lee holder). Overall a very good filter.

                      I bought two filterS from singh-ray, 1 GND 3/stop hard edge and 1 GND 2/stop soft. I really love these filterS. These two keep color very natural and imagine that we put a piece of plastic in front our lens and what will we get? Soft image right? but not this filter. I HIGHLY REC. everyone to use this filter! Im saving for more singh-Ray!

                                A must for landscape photographers. Optical quality and color rendition can't be beat. If you are a landscape photographer you need to invest on some GND filters and Singh Ray has to be one if not the best manufacturer of optical filters out there.

                                  All Singh-Ray filters come in a nice lined holder to protect them when not in use. I picked the 4x6 size so I could hand hold or use a holder. Took some recent photos in NC of Smokey Mountains and the filter worked great to help balance the hot sky with the darker green mountains. You can use Photoshop or HDR pictures, but I prefer to get them as close as possible from the camera. Can't wait to try out the Rev Grad on a Sunset or Sunrise.

                                  Comments about Singh-Ray 100 x 150mm Galen Rowell 0.9 Hard-Edge Graduated Neutral Density Filter:

                                  It is a filter that does wonders in landscape photography.

                                  It adds a very moody but dramatic effect to any shots where it is used.

                                  It is very simple to use and once one gets the hang of using it, one would never leave home without it...

                                    I live in Hawaii and I got this filter to help even out my exposures on sunrises on the beach. The contrast between the dark lava rock and the bright sun makes it almost impossible to get the exposure correct without the use of this filter. I probably could have got away with the reverse ND filter but I find this one to be a lot more versatile. I ended up getting the 4x6 filter because I mainly use my Tokina 11-16 for landscapes and I would get way too much vignetting with the p-sized filter.

                                        I'm still learning how to best use this product, but I've found no vignetting with my Pentax DA 12-24 lens, except at 12mm. It really helped to bring down the exposure on the noon day sun on my recent trip to Southeast Asia.
