Product Highlights
  • 3.0 Solid Neutral Density Filter
  • 10 Stop Exposure Reduction
  • Darkens Entire Image
  • Allows Reduced Shutter Speed
  • CR-39 Optical Resin Construction
  • Works with 85mm & Cokin P Holder Systems

The Formatt-Hitech 85 x 85mm Resin Standard Neutral Density 3.0 Filter is a solid ND filter that provides a 10 stop exposure reduction. Its 3.0 density 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. Neutral density filters do not affect the coloration of the image and are ideal for pairing with other filters.

This filter is compatible with Formatt-Hitech's 85mm holder system & Cokin P-size holders and is constructed from CR-39 optical resin. It is engineered to resist scratching as well as damage from solvents and chemicals while providing good contrast and transmission of visible light.

          Comments about Formatt Hitech 85 x 85mm Resin Standard Neutral Density 3.0 Filter:

          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

            The filter has a quite strong colour cast. its usable for b/w photography, but not that good for colourphotos.
