The Singh-Ray 100 x 150mm Daryl Benson 1.2 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 1.2 density provides a 4 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.
1.2 density provides a 4 stop reduction in light in selective areas.

    Comments about Singh-Ray 100 x 150mm Daryl Benson 1.2 Reverse Graduated Neutral Density Filter:

    I bought this filter this summer and have used them during my summer holiday at the seaside. What I can conclude, this filter it doesn't help me to achieve better sea landscapes during sunset or sunrise. First the upper part of this filter is too dark (especially if sun is between clouds). The sky becomes darker then sea surface which is looks on photo very unusual. If sun located close to the line of horizon then whiter surface reflects sun rays and becomes too bright comparable to the sky (which is covered by upper gradient part of this filter). So, it would be better for sea landscapes, to spread gradient from the middle to upper and lower part of this filter. In that case water surface will looks more natural comparing with the sky.

    Second conclusion: it is not possible to use this filter for shoots with long time exposure (10…30sec and longer) because this filter brings strong red colorcast. For shoots with long exposure I have used this filter in combination with Cookin ND8 filter. As a result – upper part of my pictures has strong red colorcast. You will see colorcast even if you don't use it with combination with cookin ND filters but just use 22…32 diaphragm on your lenses.

    During my photoshooting sessions I have used Nikon D800 camera and Nikor 16-35 f4 plus 24-70f.8 lenses

        Comments about Singh-Ray 100 x 150mm Daryl Benson 1.2 Reverse Graduated Neutral Density Filter:

        I can see a dramatic improvement in my landscape photography since I began using the 4x6 Reverse Neutral Density Graduated Filter. I expected it to improve my sunrise/sunset shots, and it has. What I did not expect was the improvement in "blue sky" photographs. The filter really brings out the clouds, lending a bit more drama to the scene than can be seen with the naked eye. Another thing that I really like about this filter is that the darker portion in the middle makes it easier to distinguish exactly where the filter is through the viewfinder. I also have a regular graduated neutral density filter which is a bit more difficult to place correctly.

        The large 4x6 size makes hand-holding possible, and also allows for wide angle shots without the filter holder vignetting the edges. My previous filter was a Cokin "P" size and even though my widest lense is only 24mm, I was always having to take the filter out in PS. I have plans to purchase a wider lens in the future, and could see that it would not be effective without going to the larger filter size.

        The only watch-out with these filters is that they do seem to pick up smears very easily if not handled correctly. A microfiber cloth is a necessity to keep them clean enough to avoid spots - especially when shooting directly into the sun as you would frequently be doing.
