Product Highlights
  • 8-Stop Neutral Density Filter
  • Increase Exposure Length
  • Schott Superwite Glass

The Formatt-Hitech 67mm HD ND 2.4 Filter is a solid neutral density filter providing a 8 stop reduction in exposure. This 2.4 density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or longer shutter speed than normally required. By slowing your exposure time or increasing your aperture, you are able to control depth of field and convey movement more easily.

This filter is constructed from Schott Superwhite glass to maintain high optical clarity and is set within a 4mm-thick metal filter ring.

          I have been buying photo gear through B&H for several years and this is the first product I have ever returned. The filter casts a heavy magenta color cast and produced unacceptably soft images.

          I was looking forward to using this product, but after my first photos with it, I quickly sent it back to B&H.

          I set my Canon 50D on a sturdy tripod and pointed it at a sunny window (camera set to Daylight white balance in aperture priority mode capturing in RAW, using a brand new Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di II LD lens). I snapped one frame with the filter, then another without the filter.

          As you can see from the images, the filter added a heavy magenta color cast. Even when I corrected for the color cast in Lightroom, the image was grainy and there was very little edge contrast.

          I was unable to produce any moderately acceptable quality images using this filter.

          Completely unsatisfied

                Comments about Formatt Hitech 67mm HD ND 2.4 Filter:

                I was excited to try this filter out, but my excitement quickly turned to dismay. I have been buying photo gear from B&H for over 10 years and this is the first time I have ever requested a return/refund.

                To test the filter, I set my camera on a tripod and pointed it at a sunny window, with a white window shade drawn. The camera was set to daylight white balance in aperture priority (this is a Canon 50d w/ quality glass), shooting in RAW. The unfiltered shot looked as one would expect. Then I placed the filter on the lens and repeated the shot.

                The result was abysmal. A spot which registered as nearly perfect neutral grey on the unfiltered photo (HEX# cbccce) now registered a garish rose color (HEX# b37ba0). The filtered shot has a tremendous amount of noise and the edge contrast/sharpness couldn't have been worse if the lens had been smeared with grease.
