Product Highlights
  • Used to Create Special Effects/Blurs
  • Permits Use of Wider Apertures
  • Helps Control Depth of Field
  • No Effect on Color
  • Made from CR39 Resin

The Neutral Density 3.0 Filter for Cokin P from Hitech has several uses and offers the possibility to achieve otherwise unachievable results. It enables the shooter to adjust exposure without affecting color balance. A ND filter appears gray and reduces the amount of light reaching either the sensor of a digital camera or the film plane of a traditional film camera.

A Neutral Density filter is also used to create some unusual special effects such as capturing the "blur" of the rippling water of a waterfall or the swirling effect of city traffic. Since it allows the use of slower shutter speeds in bright light, it becomes possible to create these special effects that would normally not be possible to capture without the filter. And, since it can also help to control your depth of field, it permits you to shoot at wider apertures. Ultimately, its value is in helping to prevent bright, overly washed out images shot in bright light.

Neutral Density Filters Have Four Main Uses

To enable slow shutter speeds to be used, especially with high speed ISOs, to record movement in subjects such as waterfalls, clouds, or cars
To decrease depth of field by allowing wider apertures to be used, which helps separate subjects from their background
To decrease the effective ISO of high speed film (above ISO 400) and allow it to be used outdoors in bright situation
To allow cine and video cameras (which have fixed shutter speeds) to film subjects such as snow, sand or other bright scenes which could cause overexposure
Absorbing Cell Technology
The secret to Formatt's consistency in filter design lies in its unique "Absorbing Cell Technology" (A.C.T.); this unique process allows color correct dyes to be applied to optically pure, wafer thin absorbing cells and offers a controllability that ensures the smoothest grad lines and consistent color across the whole filter surface
Hitech filters are manufactured to exacting standards and can be counted on to be consistent filter to filter which means you can change filters mid shot or from day-to-day and still maintain the same exposure
Hitech filters are made by Formatt, a company with three generations of professional filter-making experience produces every filter to the highest technical standards. The finest materials, together with state of-the-art production technology have resulted in a standard of optical excellence unmatched anywhere else

            Comments about Formatt Hitech Neutral Density 3.0 Filter for Cokin P:

            I read many reviews complaining about the color cast this filter produces. While there certainly is a very strong cast, if you manually set your white-balance beforehand (or adjust in post) this filter is a great alternative to much pricier models. Its absolutely a 10 stop filter and works great in combination with ND grads for long exposure work. You simply have to be prepared to accept that what you see on your camera back is going to be color tinted.

            Incredible color cast added to photos. Somebody should tell HiTech that the N in ND stands for neutral. Am VERY disappointed in this filter. Would love to get my money back
