Formatt Hitech Firecrest Pro 100x150mm ND Grad Filters
Our filters are manufactured using a rare earth metal coating, which is applied directly onto the glass using our advanced multi-coating technology. This is then bonded between further layers of the finest Schott Superwhite optical glass to provide industry leading scratch resistance and longevity.
For complete light leakage protection, a component on blackout edging is applied to completely alleviate the risk of light leak that can occur through unprotected filter edges.
The Firecrest Pro 2mm range is available in 100x100mm 2mm Standard NDs and 100x150mm 2mm Graduated NDs.
Firecrest Pro is rated for wider focal lengths up to 100mm. It is ideally suited to landscape photography. For photographers that need a longer focal length, please see Firecrest Ultra which is rated for extreme megapixel sensors and long focal lengths.
Soft Edge graduated filters transition gradually in density from the top of the filter toward the center, and although there is a horizon line, it is subtle. This allows for horizon transitions to be more easily hidden in a scene, especially with an undulating horizon line such as mountains, buildings or trees. Typically graduated filters are used to enhance the sky by balancing the luminosity of the sky to the luminosity of the terrain.
Firecrest ND grads are currently only available in soft edge grads, as they are the most versatile.
