Singh-Ray R-254 overview

  • 1Description

Ideal for use when the brightest element of a composition is centrally located, such as a horizon at sunrise or sunset, the 100 x 150mm Daryl Benson Neutral Density 0.9 Strip Filter from Singh-Ray is a unique graduated ND filter for selectively balancing exposures. Compared to a traditional grad ND, this filter places a strip of 0.9, 3-stop-effective density in the middle of the filter while the top remains clear and the bottom has a lesser degree of density to result in a well-balanced overall exposure. Differing from a reverse ND filter, the density does not taper to an edge and is primarily designed for photographing bright horizon lines.

Strip ND filters place a narrow strip of neutral density in the center of the filter plane in order to hold back bright horizons or other centrally-located bright areas while maintaining normal exposure above and beneath the density.
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-254 reviews

    100 x 150mm Daryl Benson Neutral Density 0.9 Strip Filter is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT FILTER, BUT.... This is the first Singh-Ray filter I have ever purchased. It appears to be excellent quality and comes in a great leatherette type pouch, something that not all filter manufacturers provide with their 4 X 6 (100mm X 150mm) filters. However, there are two things to be aware of:FIRST, the filter is not an actual strip of neutral density in the center of the filter with clear areas on the top and bottom. There is actually some neutral density (approximately .03) on the top half of the filter leading to the strip or stripe of neutral density in the center of the filter and then a completely clear area on the bottom.SECOND: The Singh-Ray density grade numbering system is completely different than most photographers are familiar with. Normally, ND and ND graduated filters have their density expressed as .03, .06, .09, .1.2 etc. However, Singh-Ray expresses them as 1, 2, or 3 signifying 1, 2, or 3 stops reduction in exposure. This was very confusing to me because B&H advertised the filter as 0.9 neutral density which is a 3 stop reduction and exactly what I wanted. But when the filter arrived, the packaging, the pouch and the filter itself were labeled ND-3. I thought this might mean .03 which was not what I wanted. I was ready to return it to B&H! However, a quick call to Singh-Ray cleared up my confusion. A very nice lady explained how their number grading system worked and of course I kept the filter, but is was a bit confusing at first.
