    Best graduated neutral density filters: SRB-Griturn ND Grad Kit

    Price: £46, $75 (+£5 P-type holder)

    If your budget can’t stretch to more exotic graduated neutral density filter kits, then SRB-Griturn offers a set of four filters for £46 in densities of 0.3 to 1.2, meaning you can cut up to four stops of light from a bright sky.

    Two sets are available (with hard or soft graduations), and a standard 82mm P-fit holder will only set you back a further £5 from the same company.

    Light transfer is given a minimal green casting, and the graduation cut-off point on some of the filters isn’t quite level.

    But considering a kit of eight hard and soft filters with a holder can be yours for under £100, the quality is more than acceptable.

    Pros… Reasonable cost of filters and accessories
    Cons… Won’t give the same optical quality as fancier kits
    We say… Great value for cash-conscious photographers

    Score: 4/5
