This Benro 150 x 170mm Universal Series Soft-Edge Graduated Neutral Density 0.6 Filter 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 soft-edged line of transition between the dense and clear areas. A neutral density filter with a soft-edged line of transition is particularly useful for images that do not have a strongly defined transition between the sky and the foreground. Neutral density filters do not affect the coloration of the image and this filter provides up to a 2-stop reduction in light from entering a lens.
Each surface of this filter is coated to offer greater protection to the filter substrate and helps it to stay clean for longer than with uncoated filters. The coatings associated with Benro Universal Series graduated neutral density filters also result in an improved beading effect when in contact with water for greater cleaning efficiency.
This filter is constructed from durable, optical resin and measures 2mm thick.
