Helping to balance exposures within a scene, this 6.6 x 6.6" MPTV Graduated Neutral Density 0.6 Filter from Schneider is ideally suited for situations involving both bright and dark areas, such as an open sky and shadowed foreground. Half of the filter is clear and the other half has 0.6 neutral density, with a soft-edged transition between the two that is ideally suited for use with medium and wide-angle lenses. By reducing the exposure in selective areas, you are able to balance the overall exposure of the scene in order to gain detail in both bright and dark areas.

This filter is designed to maintain a true and neutral color balance, and it has been constructed from precision ground and polished water-white optical glass for a high degree of clarity and contrast. It measures 6.6 x 6.6" / 167.6 x 167.6 mm and is intended for use in matte boxes.

    6.6 x 6.6" MPTV Graduated Neutral Density 0.6 Filter (Soft Edge) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very useful addition to my gear bag. I decided to go with glass over plastic. These filters are thick glass and heavy but I found the plastic filter I had had a couple scratches. The .6 soft edge is very useful. I also use the 1.2 but it has a much more pronounced effect...a little more obvious. I haven't had an opportunity to use the hard edgers yet so I only carry them for pre-planned shots. The softies I carry all the time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for -Ozi Down Under Pro Results used with 14-24, 0.6 soft grad, 0.9 hard grad, Lee 14-24 holder which is modified so the Schneider filters I use (2 off ) suit lenses 14-24, 16-35, 24 70, 24mm prime etc. One holder 2 filters universal fit nearly any lens considered for this style of shooting.Used for sunrise sunset land and sea scape, also works very well walking around hand held for city scape where sun rise shooting is applicable. I only use the D3x for serious shooting, how ever the quality of the Schneider glass is very evident on my D700 and older D300 as well.I have a passion to take as much as possible stunning quality shots in camera and the Schneider glass simply allows this to happen indisputably over any resin filter, the Schneider glass provides accurate colour great filtration and control, delivers what it says. I find I get the filtration I want but am able to obtain the super sharp detail light and colour of the foreground, there is no need to use Software - Photo Shop to sharpen images dramatically like needed using the resin filters.I have a safety catch on my Lee modified holder to ensure no dropping occurs, lets face it you wouldn't drop your camera so don't worry about dropping your filter.I often shoot in demanding conditions, salt spray is an issue, water splashes from waves crashing and often in the dark early hours at sunrise and sometimes in high winds etc, the glass is easy to clean one spray with Windex and a wipe with a micro fibre cloth and back to shooting, with resin filters I destroy several resin filters doing this as the salt spray dry's quickly and becomes abrasive if not soaked first, this is not what I am there to do, the Schneider is a spray wipe and shoot method for me.It's a very cheap Filter System when you look at the longer term and universal applications.The Schneider is optically more suited to the quality of the lens glass used, the Schneider GND allows me to simply take images with out degrading the shot and allows me to do what I do well and get stunning shots in camera.I have used the 0.6 soft grad and 0.9 hard grad combined with excellent results.You get what you pay for and the Schneider for me lives up to and exceeds expectations.I have sold all my resin filters and wouldn't go back, the cost of Schneider glass is insignificant compared to the result, if cost is an issue use the Lee or Sing Ray they deliver very good results but really soften the images, scratch easily and require lots of software sharpening.Resin filters for me work more acceptably with entry level or medium range quality cameras that are not so revealing, high resolution cameras make this very apparent.. I won't use anything other than glass and this brand.Any questions ask for Ozi at www.etchinghouse.com.au
