About this item

The 85mm Graduated Neutral Density Kit 5 from Hitech has several uses and offers the possibility to achieve otherwise unachievable results. This kit contains a 0.3, 0.6, 0.9 Graduated Neutral Density filter. They enable the shooter to adjust exposure without affecting color balance.

A Graduated ND filter appears gray and reduces the amount of light reaching either the sensor of a digital camera or the film plane of a traditional film camera. It is clear at the bottom with a gradual transition to darker gray at the top. Primarily, this filter is used to control exposure when shooting bright landscapes where your horizon line displays a great exposure difference between sky and foreground and you need to balance them out for a pleasing exposure.

A Graduated Neutral Density filter is also used to create some unusual special effects such as capturing the "blur" of the rippling water of a waterfall or the swirling effect of city traffic. Since it allows the use of slower shutter speeds in bright light, it becomes possible to create these special effects that would normally not be possible to capture without the filter.

And since it can also help to control your depth of field, it permits you to shoot at wider apertures. Ultimately, its value is in helping to prevent bright, overly washed out images shot in bright light. Soft/Hard designation indicates the degree of transition of the filter. Soft edge grads have a smooth transition from clear to ND. Hard edge grads have a more defined hard lined transition and should be used for longer lenses.

Key Features

  • Neutral Density Filters: To enable slow shutter speeds to be used, especially with high speed ISOs, to record movement in subjects such as waterfalls, clouds, or cars
  • Neutral Density Filters: To decrease depth of field by allowing wider apertures to be used, which helps separate subjects from their background
  • Neutral Density Filters: To decrease the effective ISO of high speed film (above ISO 400) and allow it to be used outdoors in bright situation
  • Neutral Density Filters: To allow cine and video cameras (which have fixed shutter speeds) to film subjects such as snow, sand or other bright scenes which could cause overexposure
  • Absorbing Cell Technology: The secret to Formatt's consistency in filter design lies in its unique "Absorbing Cell Technology" (A.C.T.); this unique process allows color correct dyes to be applied to optically pure, wafer thin absorbing cells
