The HiTech 4 x 6 in. Graduated Neutral Density 1.2 Filter facilitates adjustment of exposure while maintaining color balance during outdoor shooting. Multiple adjustment natural density filters ranging 1 to 4 stops are available to select one of your choices to counter situation. When needed to balance light density over the entire scene uniformly, facing constraints of light control under the bright contrast situation, it meets your desires through filtering the light exposure. Focusing your attention and exposure on one aspect will washout the foreground or background, destroying the beauty of scene to capture, could be averted with master product of Schneider, filter keep the cloud and sky aspect ratio intact for best shooting under uncontrolled light situation.
The collection of variety of filters with unmatched experience through practical shooting enables to get best results about the detailed features of scene with unique Schneider filters for both digital or for film medium in use by a professional.
The 2 stop value filter ND 0.6 provides 4 times more light to bright up dark side of portrait and efficiently controls the sky to foreground situation ratio, the transitional effects are gradually softened for flawless natural image. The filters are of high values for outdoor imaging to keep the light ratio uniform over the valuable features of scene capturing. The soft and hard label corresponds to degree of color graduation while vertical / horizontal gives the directional graduation.
Graduated natural Density filters are rated from 1 to 4, 4 corresponds to highest light impact giving filter quality.
The filter adjusts the shutter speed impact especially on high speed film medium, suitable for movement recording of waterfalls, cars and clouds Controls the aperture filed to reduce depth of field for better discriminating effects to the object from backgrounds. Filters provide flexibility of using high ISO speed films for outdoor shooting in bright lights by decreasing effective ISO.
Controls the over exposure of the film, to shiny and reflective objects like: clouds, sand and snow in a fixed shutter speed camera.
Schneider Graduated Color filters feature crystal clear, water-white optical glass, protected against edge-chipping and delamination by Schneider's unique Edge Seal, which also significantly reduces edge reflections and flare.
Schneider filters are ground and polished to a precise flatness and plane parallelism Because all Schneider filters are designed and manufactured with the highest possible degree of consistency, you can swap like filters mid-shoot with no discernible variation in color or effect
