Singh-Ray R-46 overview

  • 1Description

Ideal for photographing in high contrast situations, the 100 x 150mm Galen Rowell Graduated Neutral Density 0.9 Soft-Edge Filter from Singh-Ray helps to balance exposures and produce imagery with greater highlight and shadow detail. The filter's design places the 0.9, 3-stop density at the top of the filter and then transitions to clear by the center of the filter for a gradual, natural appearance. The soft-edge transition between the density and clear areas is well-suited for photographing scenes with an uneven or indistinct horizon line, as well as when working with a wide-angle lens. This filter is constructed from optical resin that is both durable and helps to maintain high clarity, and is compatible with the Cokin Z-Pro filter holder.

Traditional graduated neutral density places the most density at the edge of the filter and tapers to clear by the center of the filter in order to accommodate photographing scenes with large bright areas, such as a daytime sky.
Soft-edge transition between density and clear portions of the filter is suitable for photographing scenes with an indistinct or uneven horizon or line between light and shadow, and is also best-suited for use with a wide-angle lens.
Neutral density 0.9 provides a 3 stop reduction in light in selective areas.
Constructed from optical resin for overall clarity and durability.
Compatible for use with the Cokin Z-Pro filter holder.
Included filter pouch protects the filter when not in use.

    Singh-Ray R-46 reviews

    100 x 150mm Galen Rowell Graduated Neutral Density 0.9 Soft-Edge Filter is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 27.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No color cast I have a B+W glass nd grad 2 stop. It was not dark enough. The B+W 4 stop is $450. The Galen Rowell Singh Ray 3 stop is $150, and I decided to get it. My concern was that, because it was resin, there would be a slight reddish cast (as I have experienced on Cokin resin ND grads.) So I took some test shots with my B+W glass filter and the Sing Ray. To my delight, the SR performed beautifully. There was no visible color cast, and the photo quality was excellent. (It even appeared to be better than my glass filter.) It is a lot easier to carry the SR in the field. And the price is of course much less than the comparable glass filter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A landscape photogs dream A must have for cleaning up a bright sky against a darker foreground. These filters appear absolutely color neutral by histogram and LR. They are easily handheld and thicker than other resin ND filters. They are expensive but look and feel better than cheaper filters. LR and post processing are no substitute for balancing exposure across the frame.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best Grad ND Filter I could not do what I do behind the lens without Singh-Ray filters in front of the lens. Even in this day and age of cutting-edge software and post-processing techniques, I've yet to find an approach as straightforward as using quality filters at the time of capture. Singh Ray filters yield images with rich, bold color and detail throughout. They are simply indispensable!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential for landscape photography These filters are great quality, durable and do not colour tint your photos. I use my Sing-Ray soft grad filters for most of my landscape photos: sunrise, sunset, reflections, any high dynamic range situation; these filters help equalize the exposure and capture cloud detail while maintaining proper exposure in the landscape below. By metering the sky and then the foreground you can determine the difference in exposure and, with a grad ND filter, you get the proper exposure in camera with little or no post-processing. I hand-held the filter a couple of mm in front of the lens and, even for the longer exposures, it works great as long as I do not touch the lens to add camera shake. I prefer the 4x6 filters as it allows me to use it even with ultra wide angles (77mm dia). A little expensive but it's definitely worth the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from singh-ray filters are great I am an advanced novice at best. Just learning to use nd filters. The singh-ray products are very nice. The grad filter is a little difficult to position just right and has a bit of a learning curve that I am still in. However, the results are terrific when you get it right. B&H is always great to deal with.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Filter - Color Remains True I use this filter to reduce the contrast between bright skies and dark landscapes - i.e high contrast situations found in the mountains/national parks. It does not oversaturate the sky color as my cokin 2 stop ND Grad filter does. However, I find it is more like a 2 stop filter. One real benefit with this filter is that the darkened part of the filter can be adjusted up and down or sideways, allowing me to compose the picture as I like. The only difficulty is aligning the filter as the graduation is hard to see in the camera viewer - takes practice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic filter Paired with the Cokin Z filter holder, this is a fantastic product. Comes with a leatherette pouch and is very well made, like other Singh-Ray filters. I use the filter for landscape and cityscape images, and have had excellent success.
