would this be the best type of ND filter for landscapes on a beach ? thx
What do you want to achieve with the filter?
well ive never shot much yet with the new camera but im going to the maldives, great sunsets hopefully...ive got a CP and UV filter already... thx
If you try to lengthen exposure times (to blur water for example) a ND4 is a good choice.
r the graduated ones better for blocking out bright sun ?
It depends on what you want to achieve. If you want to decrease the brightness of the sky without affecting the rest of the picture use a graduated ND filter. If you want to lengthen the shutter (for waterfall shots for example), use a plain ND filter.
As you are probably aware graduated ND filters come in several strength. For landscape photography I found a 2 stop ND filter to be the most useful.
