Urth Hard Graduated ND8 Lens Filter (Plus+)

Hard Graduated ND8 Filter Plus+

Perfectly balanced landscapes

Our professional Hard Graduated ND8 (3 Stop) Filter Plus+ provides a fixed 3 f-stop light reduction for balanced exposure and better dynamic range in hard graduated light conditions.

By blocking 3 f-stops of light from half your image, you can balance your exposure when the foreground is darker than the background – such as shooting landscapes in the mountains. The hard graduation creates a natural blending of light.

Our Plus+ range features 20 layers of nano-coating providing easier cleaning and better protection against water, oil, and scratches. These layers also provide a higher maximum light transmission and a more consistent transmission curve for truer light reduction.

For best results, use our Hard Graduated ND8 Plus+ with lenses of focal lengths 35mm and above. For ultra-wide angle lenses, we recommend our Soft Graduated ND8 Filter Plus+ because it provides a more natural blending of light.

How to use

Find your filter size

Inquisitively search lens for diameter symbol. Ø often marks the spot. The diameter you seek may be accompanied by a number – Ø58 or Ø58mm. Look to the side and the front – this precious number is your filter size. Be warned: your lens focal length (e.g. 18-55mm) is not your filter size.

Place flat screw clockwise

Lovingly behold lens in one hand and place flat on lens. Gently screw clockwise until just firm. Do not over-tighten that which goes on must one day come off.

Align you Horizon

Rotate your Hard Graduated ND8 Plus+ so the graduated half of the filter cover the brighter half of your scene. This will help you balance the light in your image so you can better expose the highlights and lowlights.
