Haida 100 x 150mm Red Diamond Horizon Line Graduated Neutral Density 1.2 Filter (4 Stops)

BH #HARDHND1246 • MFR #HD4289
Haida 100 x 150mm Red Diamond Horizon Line Graduated Neutral Density 1.2 Filter (4 Stops)
Key Features
  • For Haida 100 or 100-Pro Filter Holder
  • Reduce Exposure for Sunrises or Sunsets
  • Effect Confined Across Filter Center
  • Hard-Edge Transitions
This 100 x 150mm Red Diamond Horizon Line Graduated Neutral Density 1.2 Filter from Haida is compatible with the Haida 100 or 100-Pro Filter Holder. It can be applied to darken the sky, specifically along the horizon during a sunrise or sunset, while allowing for a normal, unaffected exposure in the other regions of the image.

This filter achieves its effect with a 1.2 band of density across its center region that provides up to a 4-stop reduction in light from entering a lens. The band of density extends approximately 1.1" in both vertical directions before tapering to clear below and above, with hard-edged lines of transition before the clear areas. The clear areas then extend approximately 2.5" until they meet the top and bottom edges of the filter.

A narrow 1.2 band of density with larger clear areas directly above and below it allows the Haida 100 x 150mm Red Diamond Horizon Line Graduated Neutral Density 1.2 Filter to specifically match the positioning of the sun when it is at, or immediately above, the horizon. In such instances, the sun will appear closer to the center of an image as opposed to the upper edge, and an increase in brightness is created that is much more prominent on both sides of the sun than either above or below it. This pattern of brightness corresponds to the density pattern on the filter. The hard-edged lines of transition in this filter are useful for images that feature horizons with a hard transition between the sky and land.

Haida Red Diamond filters are constructed from shock-resistant optical glass. To prevent internal ghosting and reflections, while further enhancing clarity and color fidelity, each glass surface includes 10 layers of anti-reflective nano coatings. An additional 10 scratch-resistant hydrophobic coatings further protect this filter's substrate and result in an improved beading effect when its surfaces come in contact with water or oil, allowing for more efficient cleaning. Additionally, Haida Red Diamond filters feature rounded edges for easier placement within a compatible filter holder slot.

A metallic case for storage and transport is included, as well as a light-blocking gasket. This gasket forms a seal that is intended to prevent stray light, which could have unwanted effects on exposure, from coming in between the filter and the lens behind it.

  • Compatible with Haida 100 and 100-Pro Filter Holders
  • Effectively darkens skies, specifically along the horizon during a sunrise or sunset, while allowing for a normal, unaffected exposure in the other regions of the image
  • 4-stop band of density across filter that extends approximately 1.1" in both vertical directions before tapering to clear areas that extend 2.5" until they meet the top and bottom edges of the filter
  • Creates a neutral density pattern that matches the positioning of the sun when it is at, or immediately above, the horizon
  • Density pattern to specifically match the brightness pattern of the sun when it appears at or is close to the horizon as opposed to a higher angle, which creates an increase in brightness that is much more prominent on both sides of the sun than either above or below it
  • Hard-edged lines of transition between the 4-stop band of density and the clear areas above and below it are useful for images that feature horizons with a hard transition between the sky and land
  • Filter does not affect the overall coloration of the image
  • Shock-resistant optical glass construction
  • 10 layers of anti-reflective nano coatings on each glass surface prevent internal ghosting and reflections, while further enhancing clarity and color fidelity
  • 10 additional scratch-resistant hydrophobic coatings on each glass surface further protect the filter substrate and result in an improved beading effect when in contact with water or oil for greater cleaning efficiency
  • Rounded edges for easier placement within a compatible filter holder slot
  • When combined with a compatible filter holder, included gasket helps to prevent light from coming in between the filter and the lens behind it, which can have an unwanted effect on exposure
  • Metallic filter case for storage and transport
