Graduated filters have an effect that occurs on one area of the filter and transitions to clear on other areas of the filter. Typically graduated filters are used to enhance the sky or terrain, or balance the luminosity of the sky to the luminosity of the terrain. Formatt-Hitech also make hard and soft edge grad filters in a variety of colors.
Formatt-Hitech offers four varieties of Graduated Neutral Density Filters:
Soft Edge Grad
Hard Edge Grad
Soft Edge graduated filters transition across the filter toward the center, and although there is a horizon line, it is subtle. This allows for horizon transitions to be more easily hidden in a scene, especially with an undulating horizon line such as mountains, buildings or trees.
Soft Edge grads are essential for both fine art photographers and professional cinematographers alike, and are the most popular grads we make.
