--Moved under 4 x 5.65" Color Graduated Soft Edge
Tiffen Color-Grad filters are one of the most widely used category of filters in the industry today. They enable the image-maker to create an illusion or enhance reality. Some of the most popular applications are:
* Adding color excitement to a drab sky
* Changing the specific color in a scene to create a desired special effect
* Enhancing the existing color or creating subtle color drama
* Creating more balanced exposure in uneven lighting situations
Tiffen Color-Grads are supplied in a wide range of sizes and colors and are made in either soft edge (Depending on the size of the filter, the transition area is between 1/2" to 2" wide before reaching full density), hard edge (Depending on the size of the filter, the transition area is approximately 1/4" to 1/2" wide before reaching full density), or as a special order, attenuated gradients (The transition area takes place throughout the whole filter, starting clear and reaching its maximum density at the opposite end).
When it comes to rectangular-shaped filters, such as the 4x5.650 (Panavision size), the terms vertical and horizontal are important ( The horizontal or vertical designation refers to the position of the filter in relationship to the camera when the grad line is horizontal).
