The Formatt-Hitech 85mm Colby Brown Signature Edition Premier Landscape Filter Kit for 62mm Lens is an all-in-one premium starter kit containing three essential 85mm-wide neutral density filters and one 95mm circular polarizer filter along with a 85mm Aluminum Modular Filter Holder, a polarizer adapter ring, and an adapter ring for attaching the holder to lenses with 62mm filter threads. Additionally, a filter wallet is included to protect the filters from damage during travel and an exclusive Colby Brown booklet is also part of the kit, offering inspiration and insight into his landscape photography.
The 85 x 85mm ProStop 1.8 IRND Filter is a solid neutral density filter providing a 6 stop reduction in exposure. This 1.8 density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or longer 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.
The ProStop IRND filters have been optimized for use with digital sensors and promote nearly flat attenuation of both visible and infrared light. Due to imaging sensors' greater susceptibility to infrared light, compared to traditional film, color casts can occur when photographing darker subjects that require increased exposure times. This filter provides a high level of neutrality across both spectrums in order to eliminate color casts and ensure cleaner, truer blacks.
The 85 x 110mm Soft-Edge Graduated 0.6 ND Filter helps to specifically darken skies and other bright areas of the image. The filter is densest at the edge and tapers to clear by the middle, with a soft-edged transition line between the 0.6 (2 stop) density and clear areas. By having only a portion of neutral density on the filter, you can selectively darken areas of an image while allowing the portion of the image within the clear section to receive the normal amount of exposure.
Reverse Graduated ND
The 85 x 110mm Reverse Graduated 0.6 ND Filter is unique compared to other graduated neutral density filters in that the density begins in the middle of the filter and tapers off toward the edge of the filter. The 0.6 (2 stop) density is placed in the middle of the filter in order to help compensate for bright horizons or other circumstances when the brightest part of the image is located in the middle of the frame. Normal graduated ND filters are unable to achieve similar results due to the physical edge of the filter lying within the picture plane while photographing in a similar manner.
Circular Polarizer and Adapter
The 95mm Circular Polarizer Filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. This results in a noticeable increase in the saturation of skies and foliage, as well as clearer imagery when photographing in hazy conditions. A circular polarizer differs from a linear polarizer in that it supports full use of a camera's autofocus and auto exposure functions.
A dedicated Polarizer Adapter Ring is also included to facilitate the use of the polarizing filter in conjunction with the included modular filter holder.
Filter Holder and Adapter
The included 85mm Aluminum Modular Filter Holder accepts up to three filters at once, but can be modified to accept differing numbers of filters through the use of optional spacers and screws depending on personal needs. It attaches to the lens through the use of the included 62mm Adapter Ring.
A six-pocket filter wallet is included to protect your filters, plus up to three additional similarly-sized filters, during travel and storage.
