Use a custom graduated neutral density filter in your Sony camera with new Digital Filter camera app

Sony has released a new camera application called “Digital Filter.” This PlayMemories application “allows you to divide the scene into two or three areas and optimize the exposure and white balance for each area, helping you to shoot the best image.” The applications are most obvious for landscape scenes where there is a large variation in brightness levels, such as at sunrise or sunset, allowing you to expose for the sky and for the foreground, creating a final image with a wider dynamic range. This replicates the effects of a physical graduated neutral density filter.

Digital Filter is compatible with a wide array of Sony cameras including: Sony A7 (II), A7S (II), A7R (II), RX100 (III, IV and V), RX10 II and III, A6000, A6300 and A6500. Digital Filter is available for new users for just under US$30, but owners of Sky HDR can purchase the new application for around $20 as a special upgrade.
