The 100 x 150mm Sion Q 2.5-Stop Hard-Edge Graduated Neutral Density Filter from Vu Filters helps to darken specific areas of an image, such as bright skies, while allowing for a normal, unaffected exposure in the other regions of the image. The filter is densest at the edge and tapers to clear by the middle, with a hard-edged line of transition between the density and clear areas. Neutral density filters do not affect the coloration of the image and the density provides a 2.5-stop reduction in light from entering the lens.
Description says this is a Hard Edge but the photo shows a Soft Edge. Which is this?
Asked by: MATT
It certainly looks like a soft edge. If you search for Vu 100x150 filters you find that those saying "soft edge" look like this and "hard edge" are definitely hard-edged. They even have one soft/hard combo pack where the two filters are clearly different. But then they have another soft/hard combo pack where the photos of the two filters look identical and are both what we'd consider soft-edged. I think there's a screw-up with this particular product's photo and it shows up in both places...
