• They allow the reduction of light to part of a scene, balancing light and dark for an even exposure. Lee graduated neutral density filters are available with soft, hard or blended transitions from dark to clear.
• The soft edge is recommended for wide angle lenses and the hard edge is recommended for normal and longer lenses.

Not for you casual user. But I think all those who are looking at this know what they are in for. Effective. Using filters of this nature does put a major speedbump in your on location shooting workflow. I really have to slow down and compose my images carefully. This is not necessarily a bad thing. Having a need to be uber careful with my gear, I have slowed down considerably to keep tabs on all the individual parts required to use this filter. I find it necessary to use a tripod with the use of this filter.
