Well-suited to photographing sunsets and sunrises with flat or well-defined horizon lines, the 100 x 150mm Daryl Benson Reverse Graduated Neutral Density 1.2 Filter from Singh-Ray is a specialized graduated filter for selectively balancing high contrast situations. Compared to a traditional grad ND, this filter's 1.2, 4-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 1.2 provides a 4 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.

    100 x 150mm Daryl Benson Reverse Graduated Neutral Density 1.2 Filter is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Sky Definition I can see a dramatic improvement in my landscape photography since I began using the 4x6 Reverse Neutral Density Graduated Filter. I expected it to improve my sunrise/sunset shots, and it has. What I did not expect was the improvement in blue sky photographs. The filter really brings out the clouds, lending a bit more drama to the scene than can be seen with the naked eye. Another thing that I really like about this filter is that the darker portion in the middle makes it easier to distinguish exactly where the filter is through the viewfinder. I also have a regular graduated neutral density filter which is a bit more difficult to place correctly. The large 4x6 size makes hand-holding possible, and also allows for wide angle shots without the filter holder vignetting the edges. My previous filter was a Cokin P size and even though my widest lense is only 24mm, I was always having to take the filter out in PS. I have plans to purchase a wider lens in the future, and could see that it would not be effective without going to the larger filter size. The only watch-out with these filters is that they do seem to pick up smears very easily if not handled correctly. A microfiber cloth is a necessity to keep them clean enough to avoid spots - especially when shooting directly into the sun as you would frequently be doing.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not use it for seascape photography! I bought this filter this summer and have used them during my summer holiday at the seaside. What I can conclude, this filter it doesn't help me to achieve better sea landscapes during sunset or sunrise. First the upper part of this filter is too dark (especially if sun is between clouds). The sky becomes darker then sea surface which is looks on photo very unusual. If sun located close to the line of horizon then whiter surface reflects sun rays and becomes too bright comparable to the sky (which is covered by upper gradient part of this filter). So, it would be better for sea landscapes, to spread gradient from the middle to upper and lower part of this filter. In that case water surface will looks more natural comparing with the sky. Second conclusion: it is not possible to use this filter for shoots with long time exposure (1030sec and longer) because this filter brings strong red colorcast. For shoots with long exposure I have used this filter in combination with Cookin ND8 filter. As a result upper part of my pictures has strong red colorcast. You will see colorcast even if you don't use it with combination with cookin ND filters but just use 2232 diaphragm on your lenses. During my photoshooting sessions I have used Nikon D800 camera and Nikor 16-35 f4 plus 24-70f.8 lenses
