The Lee Grad Neutral Density Soft Filter Set can be used with both digital and film cameras. The set contains three 100 x 150mm soft ND graduated resin filters to enable the photographer to adjust exposure over part of a scene without affecting the colour balance. Exposure can be controlled by 1, 2 or 3 stops, to suit the individual situation and offers a soft transition from dark to light. ND Grads are often used by landscape photographers to balance the exposure within a scene - typically between the bright sky and darker land. ND Grad filters are available with a hard or soft gradation. Soft Grads perform best in woodland, mist, or interiors. Anywhere where there is no definite transition between sky and foreground, a soft grad will gently balance exposure across the image. This set is for use with the Lee 100mm Filter Holder system. Filter Holder and Adapter Rings not included. More

Should I use hard or soft grads?
This depends on: the type of photography, the type of equipment, and the requirements of an individual situation. There is no simple answer, most professionals will carry a selection of both. Hard Grads tend to be used on smaller format cameras (DSLR or 35mm) and are used for general landscape shots with a definite horizon. Soft Grads tend be used on larger format cameras or on very wide angle lenses and are used for balancing exposure evenly, when there is no definite horizon i.e. in cities or other situations when you may have an uneven skyline.
Compatible with both digital and film photography
Whatever format you shoot, ND Grads help cameras record scenes more like we see them - with a broad tonal range that's lost if not captured in the moment.
Precise creative control
There is a place in landscape photography for both hard and soft grads. Which one you decide to use will depend mainly on the subject matter of your image.
As a general rule, a hard grad would be used for images containing a horizon, or any hard transition between the sky and the foreground - even with jagged or mountainous horizons, the exposure can be controlled far easier with a hard grad.
Soft grads perform best in woodland, mist, or interiors. Anywhere where there is no definite transition between sky and foreground, a soft grad will gently balance exposure across the image.

Lee ND Grads
I believe it is best to get the image correct in camera and not post production. Using the Lee ND Grad allows me to achieve.
Lee nd grad soft set
I use Lee nd grads to equalise exposure in my Landscape photos.Lee are great for doing this as they don't leave any Colour cast .you have to be careful with these filters as they will get scratched.
I would recommend this product

Best of the rest
Excellent quality. Learn how to use it properly for natural effects without obvious filter lines
Expensive. But should last a lifetime.
from North Ayrshire
Expensive filters but they are the best. Solid enough construction and great optics. Haven't had any use of the 1 stop filter yet so not sure if that is a luxury for me.
