The Starter Kit contains everything you need to get you started with the Hitech system. Included in the kit is a 85mm Modular Holder together with two of the most commonly used filters - a 0.6 ND and and a 0.6 Soft Edge ND Gradr. Save 20% compared to buying separately. The 85mm (3.35") Modular Holder is unique in that it has an aluminum backplate which stands it apart from other similar holders. The holder is completely versatile and allows for up to two filter slots to be fitted to the front to take 85mm filters. All holder comes pre-assembledwith all 3 slots. An assembly guide, 6 x short screws, 2 x spare long screws and 2 x spare nuts are also included in the package. Additional spares kits are available for purchase separately. PLEASE NOTE requires separate adaptor ring(s) to fit your lens. Neutral Densit (or ND) filters produce a grey neutral effect and are used to reduce light in photography, enabling more control over exposure and depth of field without affecting color or contrast. NDs are made in different densities according to the level of light reduction from 1/3 to as much as 10 stops of light. The 0.6 ND reduces light by 2 stops. NDs are also available in graduated filters, both in hard and soft edge. These filters are clear in the bottom half of the filter with a gradual transition to the ND effect in the top half. They are primarily used for light reduction in skylines of landscape shots. Graduated NDs are available in Soft Edge or Hard Edge varieties. Soft edge grads have a smooth transition from clear to ND. Hard edge grads have a more defined hard lined transition and are usuallye used for longer focal lengths. ND Grads are made in different densities according to the level of light reduction from 1/3 to as much as 4 stops of light. The 0.6 filter reduces light by 2 stops. The filter is 85mm wide but 110mm (4.35") long so that it can be moved up and down in the holder to line up the graduation line easily with the horizon.
