Designed with professional landscape photographers in mind, this 170 x 190mm Master Series Hard Edge Graduated 0.9 ND Filter from Benro has an 8x filter factor that provides a 3-stop exposure reduction in selected areas. This specific model features a hard edge in its center that starkly divides the clear section and the darkened section, making it ideal for photos with a sharp horizon such as seascapes and elevated urban landscapes.
The Master Series filters are made with Schott B270 glass and finished with several different layers of coating. These layers increase the resistance of the glass to avoid scratches and help keep the surface waterproof, making it easier to clean when shooting in inclement weather. Additionally, the filter is designed for a neutral performance that avoids affecting color rendition and curtails the unnatural colors found in some pictures with high contrast.
