    Thinking about purchasing an ND filter. Just wondering if you guys had a favorite brand or thickness of the filter. I'm thinking about maybe a 9 stop hoya? Let me know what you guys think. I shoot a D90. Thanks!!

    Sorry, just new to ND filters. What's the difference between hard and soft graduated?

    "Hard" means there a short length for the transition from clear to the full ND portion. "Soft" means a longer length for the same transition.

    Hard:

    Clear---------------------------Clear -Transition Area-Full ND-----------------Full ND




    Soft:

    Clear-------------Clear---------------Transition Area-------------Full ND-------Full ND
