Singh-Ray R-63 overview

  • 1Description

Well-suited to photographing sunsets and sunrises with flat or well-defined horizon lines, the 100 x 150mm Daryl Benson Reverse Graduated Neutral Density 0.9 Filter from Singh-Ray is a specialized graduated filter for selectively balancing high contrast situations. Compared to a traditional grad ND, this filter's 0.9, 3-stop density is in the center of the filter plane and transitions toward one edge while leaving half of the filter area clear to receive full exposures. This configuration is ideal for sunrises and sunsets where the brightest part of the scene is centrally located and is surrounded by a darker foreground and sky. The filter is constructed from optical resin that is both durable and helps to maintain high clarity, and it is compatible with the Cokin Z-Pro filter holder.

Reverse graduated filter places the most density in the middle of the filter and tapers to one edge in order to accommodate bright horizons and other situations where the brightest part of the image lies in the middle of the composition.
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-63 reviews

    100 x 150mm Daryl Benson Reverse Graduated Neutral Density 0.9 Filter is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 59.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Reverse Grad ND filter out there I already had a set of Lee 4x6 soft ND grad filters and they're the best. But they work best when the sun is high or behind you. I needed a an ND where the grad was reversed for sunset shots of the ocean. With a reverse grad the heaviest filter is on the horizon where you need it and it reduces upward from there. Lee didn't make one. From the reviews I'd read the Daryl Benson Reverse .9 grad ND by Singh-Ray was the best one out there. I used it last week for some sunset shots taken in at the Des Moines Marina near Seattle and the results totally blew me away.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Transition too slow filter works great as long as you are using a wide angle lens and keep the horizon line towards the bottom of the frame. The transition from the middle of the filter to the top occurs somewhat slowly and you see most of the reverse nd benefit towards the top third of the filter. Anything other than a wide angle lens will be too narrow to appreciate the benefits of the filter but it works well when the image is shot with the rights lens and framed correctly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great filter for sunrise & sunset photo I'm a fan of sunrise and sunset photography and I found that this one is the best GND filter I've ever used. This filter was in front of my lens in 90% of my sunrise and sunset photos. It produced clear optics and more natural photo as I expected.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most have for Sunset Shots I used the 3 stop Sing-Ray Graduated Neutral Density Filter before I got this filter and I always ended up with sky which was too dark. Using this filter now you get a really nice sunset shot and a balance sky. The quality of Sing-Ray filters is very high and they all come with their own leather pouch. I am very happy with the 2 filters I have.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brings out the best! I use the Daryl Benson 0.9 Reverse Graduated hand held works best for me on either long or short exposure of seascapes or landscapes with plenty of open sky, being careful not to bump the lenses during long exposures. Love how it brings out the best of the sky right out of the camera on what could have been blown out. As the horizon gets darker at the top of the frame this filter lightens up giving a beautiful balance overall.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit for the Lee Filter System I shoot sunrises and sunsets. I needed a reverse ND grad to balance overexposure on the horizon. My regular Lee ND grads work great when the sun is high in the sky but no so much when the sun is setting without totally darkening out the foreground. And Lee didn't offer a reverse ND grad. I chose the Daryl Benson .9 Reverse ND by Singh-Ray based on reviews that there is none better. I'm happy with my purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best graduated ND filter made I decided to get good use out of the filter before writing a review. I've had the 0.9 reverse graduated ND (4x6) Singh-Ray filter for 9 months and used it on over 30 shoots. I clean the filter between shoots and it is still without scratches. It was money well spent. All my standard Canon lenses use a 77mm filter so instead of buying a filter mount I find it much more effective to view the landscape through Live View and hand-hold the filter. This allows me to dodge the light on long exposures. Tilting it and dodging it up and down I can control the exposure much better. I've even used it in front of a solid 5-stop ND filter and B&H circular polarizing filter to get exposures between 5 and 30 seconds. The clouds come out beautiful and the image colors are vivid. My fear has been that I might break the filter while in transit but it's pretty sturdy. I still plan on getting a hard-shell case to carry all 4x6 filters.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have filter Just got back from Hawaii, and the SR Rev ND Grad filter was essential for those breathtaking sunset pics. 3 stops is about right. When I looked at the histograms and opened in LR, there was no perceptible color shift. Nicely sized for hand holding and keeps in a nicely padded leatherette pouches.
