Singh-Ray R-45 overview

  • 1Description

Ideal for photographing in high contrast situations, the 100 x 150mm Galen Rowell Graduated Neutral Density 0.9 Hard-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 hard-edge transition between the density and clear areas is well-suited for photographing scenes with a straight, distinct horizon line as well as when working with a telephoto or long 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.
Hard-edge transition between density and clear portions of the filter is suitable for photographing scenes with a distinct or straight horizon or line between light and shadow, and is also best-suited for use with a long or telephoto 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-45 reviews

    100 x 150mm Galen Rowell Graduated Neutral Density 0.9 Hard-Edge Filter is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! I live in Hawaii and I got this filter to help even out my exposures on sunrises on the beach. The contrast between the dark lava rock and the bright sun makes it almost impossible to get the exposure correct without the use of this filter. I probably could have got away with the reverse ND filter but I find this one to be a lot more versatile. I ended up getting the 4x6 filter because I mainly use my Tokina 11-16 for landscapes and I would get way too much vignetting with the p-sized filter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Singh-Ray 3 Stop ND FIlter All Singh-Ray filters come in a nice lined holder to protect them when not in use. I picked the 4x6 size so I could hand hold or use a holder. Took some recent photos in NC of Smokey Mountains and the filter worked great to help balance the hot sky with the darker green mountains. You can use Photoshop or HDR pictures, but I prefer to get them as close as possible from the camera. Can't wait to try out the Rev Grad on a Sunset or Sunrise.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good filter I use this filter mostly for landscapes when there is a marked difference in brightness between the sky and the rest of the picture. The hard edge is difficult to see and blends nicely, as long as it is placed slightly below the horizon. There is also hardly any color cast. I often combine it with a solid neutral density or a circular polaraizer and, as expected, did not see any vigneting coming from this filter. I use it handheld or inserted in a Hitech holder (have used as well with a Lee holder). Overall a very good filter.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A must Have It is a filter that does wonders in landscape photography. It adds a very moody but dramatic effect to any shots where it is used. It is very simple to use and once one gets the hang of using it, one would never leave home without it...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great size! Worked well! I'm still learning how to best use this product, but I've found no vignetting with my Pentax DA 12-24 lens, except at 12mm. It really helped to bring down the exposure on the noon day sun on my recent trip to Southeast Asia.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pro standards Singh-Ray filters are pretty much the pro standard for graduated filters.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, no color cast Every time I purchase a Singh-Ray filter I always myself if I should really be spending that much money on a filter when there are much cheaper options out there. But then when I receive it and put it to use I am reminded why. These filters are well respected in the community for a reason. There is no perceivable color cast especially compared to some of the cheaper options and the construction is top notch. Even though they are made of resin, they are incredibly high quality in terms of optical quality. They work great with my Cokin Z-pro holder or just hand held in front of the lens. The 4x6 (Z-Pro) size is much easier to use with wide angle lenses and also easier to use handheld especially in cold weather where you may be using gloves when compared to the Cokin-P size filters. But you do pay a premium for the larger size. Thankfully I am certain that the quality of these filters means I will have them for years and years.
