The Formatt 77mm Soft Net Black 2 Filter uses an old Hollywood technique of overlaying a net pattern on the surface of the resin creating a classic diffusion effect, minimizing unwanted details while maintaining image clarity.
There's nothing better for a wedding or portrait photographer than to have a filter that offers a flattering alternative to the standard wedding portrait. The Formatt Soft Net Black filter can help bring down contrast in bright situations and turn what would normally be a harsh image, into one that is more even toned and romantic. This filter will also correct for minor skin imperfections.
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.
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.
- This process is revolutionary compared with conventional filter dying techniques by eliminating the need to directly coat the glass surface itself; the repeatable performance gained through A.C.T. ensures that at any time you have to swap like filters for like filters mid shoot you can do so with confidence with no discernable differences in color or density.
- Each filter is guaranteed flatness to a maximum 2-wave value and comes with an individual reading from a laser interferometer; every filter is carefully verified with a densitometer and spectrophotometer to ensure consistent and accurate transmission, before leaving the factory - the result is an absolute purity of image that eliminates any unwanted colorcast caused by conventional greenish soda-lime glass.
