Kase Buyers Guide – What filter is best for me?

What filter is best for me?

Ultimately, what you shoot will determine which ND densities and choice of filter is most important to you. Here are our recommendations to help you pick:

Which filter is best for a landscape photographer?

The 6-stop and 3-stop soft edge graduated filter are the most versatile and useful filters in the kit bag of a landscape photographer. The 6-stop will allow you to extend your shutter speed up to 2 minutes, with the 3-stop graduated filter, allowing you to control and balance the difference in exposure between the land and sky.

I want to start experimenting with long exposures?

The 10-stop ND filter will give you the best results, especially at coasts or urban environments where you can turn busy, crashing waves in to smooth, flat seas or cut out human movement in a busy city. Consider adding a reverse or medium edge graduated filter to help balance your exposure between the sky and foreground in camera.

I’m looking for a filter to help when shooting video?

A variable density filter or smalled stop fixed ND filters are preferred by videographer.

The variable density filter will allow you to change the density of the filter without needing to stop production, meanwhile you can maintain a shallow depth of field, fixed shutter speed and low ISO in changing light conditions.
