Product Highlights
  • 2 Stop Reverse Graduated ND Filter
  • Reduce Exposure in Selective Areas
  • Density Transitions from Middle to Edge
  • CR-39 Optical Resin
  • Compatible with Cokin Z-Pro Holder

The Singh-Ray 100 x 150mm Daryl Benson 0.6 Reverse Graduated Neutral Density Filter is unique compared to other graduated neutral density filters in that the density begins in the middle of the filter and tapers off toward the edge of the filter. The density is placed in the middle of the filter in order to help compensate for bright horizons or other circumstances when the brightest part of the image is located in the middle of the frame. Normal graduated ND filters are unable to achieve similar results due to the physical edge of the filter lying within the picture plane while photographing in a similar manner. 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.

Reverse graduated filter places the most density in the middle of the filter to accommodate bright horizons and other situations where the brightest part of the image lies in the middle of the composition.
0.6 density provides a 2 stop reduction in light in selective areas.
Neutral density filters do not affect the overall coloration of the image.
Compatible with the Cokin Z-Pro filter holder.

          It's a Singh-ray filter, and they to Reverse-Grad-ND filters like no other. Comes with a great fairly slim case, unlike Lee filter cases. No color cast and fairly durable.

              Excellent Product to use in combination with other filters specially for sunset/sunrise shots. If you can afford it, you should have it - certainly a must have for Professional Photographers. As an added bonus, customer support from B&H and Singh-Ray are top notch. This specific product works perfectly with Lee Foundation Filter Holder or Cokin Z-Pro Holder.

                Singh-Ray lives up to it's reputation. This really makes the difference in sunrise and sunset hot spots. Will get the 3-stop one also.

                  Comments about Singh-Ray 100 x 150mm Daryl Benson 0.6 Reverse Graduated Neutral Density Filter:

                  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 it says. True ND leaves no color cast. 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.

                  Comments about Singh-Ray 100 x 150mm Daryl Benson 0.6 Reverse Graduated Neutral Density Filter:

                  Use this product to balance two areas of brightness within your scene that fall out of the range of your capture medium. Usually a bright sky is darkened by this filter so the foreground and sky will fit into the contrast range of a single exposure. This product is particularly geared toward darkening a sun on the horizon of a landscape scene. Most grad ND filters are darkest at the top and gradate down to clear. This filter is very ingenious in that its darkest density is place towards the middle of the filter with a gradation to clear up and down. Simply, you are darkening the sun or the brightest area of your scene the most when the sun is low on the horizon around sunrise or sunset. The gradation to clear upwards from center also keeps the tops of your image from going to dark. Traditional ND grad filters can cause the top corners of your image to go too dark. It is probably THE grad ND filter for sunrises and sunsets. I would like for it to gradate upwards toward clear quicker but its not a deal breaking compromise.
                  The filter is too expensive, as all Singh-Ray's stuff is. The difference is that this product is a great product compared to the rest of their line. Its is very attractively packaged and is a nice product. I would recommend it if you can afford it. If not go with the Lee filters. Its a five star product but the price is too much for anything but the professional (or rich amateur) photographer, so the filter loses a star.

                    Have not use the product as often as I would like but, so far has worked
                    perfectly.
                    It is easy to manage even with my 12mm lens because of the size( 4+6)
