Designed to balance the overall exposure within a high-contrast scene, the 100 x 125mm Soft Edge Graduated Neutral Density 0.9 Filter from Formatt-Hitech is ideal for situations involving both bright and dark areas, such as an open sky and shadowed foreground. Half of the filter has 0.9 neutral density and the other half is clear, with a soft-edged transition between the two that is ideally suited for use with medium and wide-angle lenses or when there is an uneven, undulating horizon. By reducing the exposure in selective areas, you are able to balance the overall exposure of the scene in order to gain detail in both bright and dark areas.

This filter is constructed from lightweight, durable optical resin, which is also designed to maintain image clarity and not affect the overall color balance of the scene. It measures 3.9 x 4.9" / 100 x 125 mm, is 1.5mm thick, and is suitable for use in 100mm filter holders.

100 x 125mm Soft Edge Graduated Neutral Density 0.9 Filter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the quility I expected Not quite the quality I expected. Works fantastic for fixing the difficult exposure between the sky and foreground. It fits well in my Lee filter holder. My only complaint is that the images shot through it are softer then the same shot without the filter which is why I gave it 3 stars. I know it is not the most expensive filter but it is not cheap by any means so I expect the image to be just as clear as without it. I would still recommend it for balancing exposure as long as you understand your images will not be as clear as just the lens. FYI - It can be used on a lens up to 10mm wide but with the Lee setup I have it stats getting a little vignetting which is not the filters fault but rather its size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I expected... Since I use multiple lenses, I handhold this filter and skip the hassle of filter mounts. The 4x5 size allows for keeping fingers out of the way. Wish this filter came with a case of some kind, but one was easy enough to make out of soft cloth & carrying in a CD case. I also invested in a small pair of polyester gloves from the cosmetic counter, as extra protection from fingerprints. There's the ability to feather the effect as well as setting the horizon as needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tool that does the job! Modern digital camera see only a 5 f-stop range of light when they meter exposure. This often results in blown out skies or dark deep shadows. The graduated neutral density filter helps correct this problem. It allows me to either enrich my skies, or enhance my foregrounds thus creating a more visually balanced photograph. I use it religiously in photographing landscapes of all types. I consider it a must for my photograph. It is easy to use, and most important produces outstanding results. If you are not using one, you should be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect gear for landscape after some research online, finally choose hitech over cokin GND. used with cokin z holder on my tokina 12-24mm ii lens, and perfect for shooting landscape when sky is much lighter than the foreground. considering buying a hard edge one soon

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Size for Handholding I upgraded from the smaller P-size Hitech and Singh-Ray and could not be happier. The size is perfect for handholding where the smaller P-size require much care or a holder. I always use a folded pec-pad when handling to avoid fingerprints. The quality is great, no color cast, and the price is right, about a $100 less than the slightly larger 4x6 Singh-Ray and Lee making this a great deal. My essentials Grad-ND kit includes 2 and 3 stop hard and soft.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hitech 0.9 4x5 Graduated Neutral Filter This was a replacement for a Hitech neutral density filter I took with me to Alaska in nearly new condition. I know resin is supposed to be tough and there is no doubt it is tougher than plastic. But I popped it out of its case in Anaktuvuk Pass 150 miles north of the Arctic Circle and promptly dropped it into the ice-covered gravel. Gritty snow clung to it, which doesn't seem so bad until you realize this is tough -38F snow--more like sand. Anyway I came back with a scratch and replaced the filter. As you can see I bought another due to the price but I have yet to wonder if maybe a more expensive one would be still tougher. As for the case, while the temp was -38F, the windchill was -60F. That means if you open the plastic sleeve to remove the filter, the part that folds over the top shatters and drops to the ground. Hope it doesn't make the caribou sick.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than cokin but cokin unavailable Good product, unable to get holders for it currently due to shortage around cokin going out of business. Only been able to use it handheld which is definitely less than ideal. I personally like the look better than HDR, multiple exposure combinations/tone mapping. It just looks more natural. Not sure others feel the same as me as it seems prices are going up on thse, availability getting more difficult for holders etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Filter Great filter. Just as neutral as the Singh-Rays I have used.....but about$cheaper!! The transition in density is nice and gradual!! This filter is tough and durable regardless of what other reviewers may say!! I'm sure alot of things dont operate correctly at 38 below zero! But someones own error in judgement is no reason to discredit a product!!
