  • Increase Exposure Length

The Hitech 85mm Neutral Density Master Kit (Soft Edge) contains a wide range of 6 neutral density filters, including both soft-edged graduated and solid.

The solid ND filters included are 0.3, 0.6, and 0.9 densities, offering exposure reduction of 1, 2, and 3 stops respectively. An ND filter creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower 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. These filters measure 3.3 x 3.3" / 85 x 85mm and are constructed from specially dyed CR-39 resin.

The ND Grad filters included are 0.3, 0.6, and 0.9 densities, offering exposure reduction of 1, 2, and 3 stops respectively. A graduated ND filter has density on half of the filter surface, helping to darken skies and other bright areas of the image. The filter is most dense at the edge and softly tapers to clear by the middle of the filter. The filters measure 3.3 x 4.3" / 85 x 110mm and are constructed from specially dyed CR-39 resin.

Kit includes 0.3, 0.6, 0.9 solid ND filters and 0.3, 0.6, 0.9 soft-edged graduated ND filters.
Solid ND filters darken the image, allowing you to photograph with a longer shutter speed or wider aperture than normally required. These filters allow you to control depth of field and convey movement more easily.
Graduated ND filters provide selective darkening for controlling the exposure of the sky or other bright areas of the image.
Neutral density filters do not affect the overall coloration of the image.
These filters measure 3.3" / 85mm wide and are compatible with Cokin P filter holders.

      Comments about Formatt Hitech 85mm Neutral Density Master Kit (Soft Edge):

      I use this filter kit, mainly, for landscape shots. I have used the NDs for mid day portraits with a speedlight.

      PROS
      Great budget option. Great for beginners. Sturdy. No noticeable color distortion.

      CONS
      I have noticed with almost every photo I've used these on things get really soft. I could be tack sharp without these filters and with things look a touch out of focus with them.

      If you are a hobby photographer or not selling print, this is a great option! Affordable, sturdy and effective. I am moving into the world of prints and fine art and these filters just won't cut it for that.

        Good when not stacked but observed magenta color cast when stacked. But good value for money. These filters can easily attract dust when used near coast line

          Bought this set to get started with ND filters and learn a few things. Set comes at a great price and has solid and grad filters. Using with a Canon 40D and Cokin holders. No noticeable color cast. I am very pleased with the filters and the learning opportunities they are providing.

            This is a great starter kit for the price range. It comes with everything you need to cover the basics. One of my favorite things about this kit is the handy labeling on the filters themself whcih makes graping a filter on the fly quick and ez.
