This Formatt Hitech 100 x 100mm Neutral Density 1.2 Filter is an ND filter with a 16x filter factor that provides a 4-stop exposure reduction and is compatible with a Formatt Hitech 100mm Aluminum Modular Holder or Formatt Hitech 100mm Firecrest Filter Holder. Its 1.2 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 can 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 non-coated and is constructed from optical-quality resin for clarity as well as color fidelity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good low-cost ND filter In my testing of the HiTech filters I shot the images in RAW format with some of my best gear. I attempted to color correct the images with a Passport ColorChecker. I had little luck with the 10 Stop (ProStop), some modest success with 7 stop (ProStop)filter, but did get a very workable image with the 4 stop filter (Standard).The base camera settings were:WB set to ShadeAv set to f/8ISO set to 100My processing included the following steps:1) Eye dropper white balance correction on the neutral square2) Export the image to ColorCheckerr Passport to create a custom camera profile for the image3) Restart LR4 and apply the custom camera profile4) Apply the LR4 preset for Scenic Sharpen5) Export to JPG filesThe 10 Stop:Temp shift from 7,000 to 50,000 (maxed out)Tint shift from +7 to + 114The 7 stop:Temp shift from 7,000 to 13,750Tint shift from +7 t0+81The 4 stop:Temp shift from 7,000 to 8,300Tint shift from +7 to -1The NON-Filtered:Temp Shift from 7,000 to 7,900Tint shift from +7 to +12

Rated 3 out of 5 by from For the quality it is overpriced For the quality it is overpriced. Even on a tripod triggered with a remote the images are slightly softer. The same image shot without it is noticeable more clear which is why I think the quality doesn't match the price. Having said that it works very well for slowing the exposure. As long as you understand your images will be slightly softer then without the filter I would still recommend it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from When is Neutral not? After receiving this filter I did an exposure calibration and color test. Exposure compensation was 4.3 stops but the color test needed 20 points of green to correct for the horrific magenta shift. So when is a Neutral Density filter Neutral? Not here! As this filter was going to be used for video, I really didn't want to add another color compensation filter in front of the lens, nor have to do post production color correction every time I use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Formatt always makes great products, I'm very happy with the results! If you take care of them, they rival glass in quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good, too much color cast This filter have too much color cast toward magenta. Almost unusable. Buy a real glass filter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have filter I have used this filter for my work for two years and it is perfect. I can use it in my Cokin Z-holder but more often than not just hand hold it. It can easily be combined with a CPL or other ND filter to achieve 4-extra stops which help with waterfalls on sunny days, softening clouds, getting a soft ethereal texture from crashing waves and streams. The nice thing about it is that unlike using very high density screw on ND filters which might make it very difficult to see and focus, especially when using slow f/5.6 lens, you can compose, focus, then use the AF button to lock focus, hold the filter over the lens or other filter, then exposure and click. Very simple and effective. I use this filter a lot. I used to own the extremely expensive SR vari-ND but I sold it for this one because 1) it vignettes at wide angles, 2) does not meter properly due to the physics of the design so you must take test shots and use an iterative approach 3) you can easily over dial in the density which results in a 'cross' in the center where the two polarizers meet. You can't see this effect in the viewfinder since it would be too dark but the result is obvious in the LCD screen. Bottom line, it is much faster to use this filter than a vari-ND and since a vari-ND vignettes at ultra wide angles you end up needing two sets of filters which is just a waste of money. I use this filter a lot along with about 10 other filters which I keep in my two filter pouches that include grad-NDs, CPL, and yes, a screw-on 3-stop ND. No color cast, fast and easy to use compared with any alternative, and very affordable.
