Tiffen 4x4 Clear Grad ND.6 Filter
Tiffen 4x4 Clear Graduated ND.6 (2 stop) Filter
Often, you want to balance light intensity between two areas within a scene. This is important outdoors to allow more sky detail while properly exposing the foreground. Exposing for the foreground will produce a washed-out, over
exposed sky, exposing for the sky will leave the foreground dark, underexposed.
  • Part clear, part neutral density, with a smoothly graded transition between
  • A Color-Grad ND.6-to-clear is often best for balancing sky to foreground
  • Neutral gray appearance drops exposure
Neutral Density Filters
These filters reduce the amount of light passing through the camera lens without changing the color of the scene.  They are especially useful in bright light conditions to help prevent overexposure.  Neutral Density filters also allow proper exposure at a wider lens opening for reduced depth-of-field to highlight a key subject by making the foreground and/or background out of focus.
  • Eliminates overly bright, washed-out images
  • Balances exposure
  • Controls depth-of-field
  • Allows slower shutter speeds to produce blurred motion effects
·         Tiffen offers Color Grads in both "€œSE"€ for soft edge and "€œHE"€ for hard edge. This lets you decide if you want a gradual color change or a sharper half clear-half color division
·         Tiffen offers Color Grads designated "€œH" for horizontal and "€œV" for vertical color grad orientation. Standard Tiffen Color Grads are supplied in HSE format (horizontal/soft edge) unless specified
·         Hard Edge: Depending on the size of the filter, the transition area is approximately ¼" -€“ ½"€ wide before reaching full density
·         Soft Edge: Depending on the size of the filter, the transition area is approximately ½ - 2"€ wide before reaching full density
·         Color-Grad® "Hard"€ edge filters are preferable with telephoto lenses
·         Color-Grad® "Soft"€ edge filters are preferable with wide angle lenses
·         Color Grads are available in a number of colors, many in densities 1-3 or 1-5 (the higher density number equals a stronger color effect). The density must be specified
