Lee 4x6" Hard-Edge Graduated Neutral Density Resin Filter Set - Often it is necessary or desirable to balance the light intensity in one part of a scene with another. This is especially true in situations where you don't have total light control, as in bright contrasty landscapes. Exposing for the foreground will produce a washed-out, over-exposed sky while exposing for the sky will leave the foreground dark and under-exposed.

This kit consists of Lee Grad ND filters in grades of 0.3 (1 stop), 0.6 (2 stops), 0.9 (3 stops). They allow the transition to be blended into the scene, often imperceptibly. A neutral density 0.6-to-clear, with a two stop differential, will generally compensate the average bright sky-to-foreground situation and is also the most popular density of the series.

Lee graduated neutral density filters are available with soft or hard transitions from dark to clear. The soft edge is recommended for wide angle lenses and the hard edge is recommended for normal and longer lenses.

Lee graduated resin filters are 4 x 6" (100 x 150mm) x 2mm thick. The 6" length allows for adjustment of the filter within the holder.

Note: Soft Edge represents a gradual transition from one end of the filter to the other while Hard Edge contains a firm "line of demarcation"

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lee 4x6 The LEE filter set has litterally changed photography for me and added a whole lot of fun!!!I used to own some singh-ray gnd's, and I'm not sure exactly what it is but these things seem a whole lot more durable (I still wish they were available in glass) and no color casting whatsoever ...combined with the LEE filter system these, and the Big Stopper, just plain old ROCK!!!Regarding the LEE system...pricey? yep!worth it? HELL YES!!!This photo was just after a storm and the water was still rather choppy. I used the Big Stopper and the 0.3 hard-edged grad for this 4 1/2 minute exposure.my landscape set-up...Nikon D7000Tokina 11-16 2.8

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it says on the tin Having experience of all the major brand alternatives over three decades of photography, I think Lee has an optical quality advantage, if only slight. The filter holder is certainly the best quality alternative. The real issue is price - this set (and all Lee products in general) are overpriced and under-available, at least in the US. I would have liked to get a decent container/protective box for these three filters. They're no good if they crack in transit. At this price, that's not a lot to ask. Otherwise, it would have been a five star rating. These points aside, the filters are excellent in use. The 'hard' graduation is exactly right for real world use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from very effective Being an action photographer and starting out learning landscape, it baffled me how the bright light on top of a landscape gets in sync with the bottom of the darker bottom of the picture. After reading up on it, I realized using these type of filters was the way to accomplish it. I went with hard edge and love these things. I get to concentrate on my image bottom half and these do the magic up top, so that I have minimal post processing in lightroom. I hand hold them for now and have put some scratches on them, but they do not show on the photo. Waiting on the foundation kit to hold these bad boys, from the UK. I feel lucky to have seen these available a couple of weeks ago on B&H because they are always sold out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for hard horizon lines, great quality from LEE I use the hard filters the most in my landscape photography, especially for hard horizon lines. While the resin filters aren't as great as all my other ProGlass, LittleStopper, and BigStopper LEE filters, they server their purpose and so far I have not seen any degradation in image quality. I am producing BEAUTIFUL photographs all thanks to LEE. And it's even more fun to play with my results in post.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Filters I use these filters with a 5DII and 16-35mm II lens. I am getting some great shots with them. I initially was concerned that the hard edge would be problematic, and thought I should have got the soft lens, but it is working out just fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, What a difference To enhance the look of the landscape photo, these filters help to meter the brighter area of the shot, ie to darken a sky while bringing out the land or water portion of the photo. They are very easy to use and by having three different F-stops to work with you can get very creative. I did not get a holder for these, instead I simply tape them to the front of the lens to avoid any light getting in between the filter an lens. Works great as long as the filters are larger than the lens you are using.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes all the difference Didn't know how much I was missing in a sunset photo until I used these filters. Brought out the foreground in my photos, making my average photos into very good shots!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright Skys Well, if you want to balance a bright sky against a less bright lower portion of your photo a grad filter is of big help. I won't say that you can't do the same with software; but depending upon the photo it could be very time consuming and require a high level of skill. If you can get the effect you want while taking the photo, I believe this is the preferable way to go, generally speaking.
