Lindsey Optics has a new range of Brilliant² Rota-Grads. This range of rotating full spectrum graduated neutral density filters fits directly into 4″ x 5.65″ rod-mounted and clip-on matte boxes.

The Rota-Grads come in a choice of densities. The 138mm round graduated FSND filter is installed in a geared rotating tray mount that fits in a single matte box slot. A geared thumbwheel allows you to rotate the filter to the desired position and you can then lock that position with the sliding Rota-Lock.

Key features

  • Fits directly into 4×5.65 matte boxes, including clip-on matte boxes
  • 138mm round graduated FSND filter installed in a geared rotating tray
  • Fast and easy alignment of the grad line on tilted horizon, mountain slope or scene element
  • Shots with high dynamic range like landscapes with blown out skies can become beautifully exposed with well-defined clouds
  • Emphasize specific areas of a scene by darkening a foreground or a corner of the shot
  • Minimized filter handling, because the grad is always in a tray
  • Geared thumb wheel with Rota-Lock

So why would you use a rotating graduated ND filter?

Having a rotatable circular 138mm graduated ND filter allows the user to emphasize specific areas of a scene by darkening a foreground or a corner of the shot. In addition, it also makes it easier to align the filter’s soft edge grad line on a tilted horizon, such as a mountain slope.

The Brilliant² Rota-Grads offer a significantly larger aperture than other traditional filter alternatives. This enables you to use them with large diameter and wide-angle lenses.
