Graduated ND filters
Jun 4, 2010

I'm thinking about buying a graduated ND, because I hate blown skies, but I like well exposed landscapes

Do you prefer the ones with a hard edge, or a soft edge? The soft ones are of course a little more forgiving (easier to use in mountains and other non-flat horizons), and the hard ones require very careful positioning or you will ruin the shot more than without it. But the soft edge ND filters might take too little light away at the bottom of the ND part?

The other thing is, that I'm thinking of buying a screw-in type, just to see whether these filters work for me, maybe later I can upgrade to the more versatile Cokin filters. Would you advice against these? (Thom H. does...)
