Cokin and OmegaBrandess Introduce NUANCES GND Filters

The dark side has never been so attractive.

Hampstead, MD — Only a few months after having introduced NUANCES Full ND filters – the best Neutral Density filters available, Cokin and OmegaBrandess are proud to announce NUANCES Graduated Neutral Density (GND) filters.

Cokin states that their biggest challenge has been to adapt their coating technology to make it graduated. A nano-metallic alloy is gradually applied on both side of a highly resistant tempered Schott Glass B270, renowned for its high transmittance and low reflection. The result is stunning neutrality, completely free of infrared pollution.  Multiple NUANCES filters (GND or Full) can be stacked without color cast.

NUANCES GND filters are dedicated to landscape photography. When the dynamic range of film or the sensor is too narrow, they allow a balanced brightness between two parts of an image by efficiently keeping details in overly-bright part of a scene. GND filters effect cannot be reproduced in post-processing, where clipping is hard to recover. The transition between the dark and light areas is soft, making it easier to use in most situations. NUANCES GND filters are available in the following densities:
