Formatt Hitech FC85ND1.5 overview

  • 1Description

The Formatt-Hitech 5mm Firecrest ND 1.5 Filter is a solid neutral density filter providing a 5 stop reduction in exposure. This 1.5 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 design of this filter has been optimized for use with digital sensors and promote nearly flat attenuation of visible, UV, 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 all three spectrums in order to eliminate color casts and ensure cleaner, truer blacks.

Applied to the outside of the Schott Superwite glass construction is a 15-layer Firecrest multi-coating, which helps to minimize reflections and flare in order maintain truer colors and contrast. The multi-coating is also scratch-resistant and hydrophobic to benefit the overall durability of the filter. It measures 3.3 x 3.3" / 85 x 85mm and is 0.08" / 2mm-thick, making it compatible with the Formatt-Hitech 85mm Filter Holder.

ND 1.5 filter darkens the image, allowing you to photograph with a longer shutter speed or wider aperture than normally required.
Providing a 5 stop exposure reduction, this filter allows you to control depth of field and convey movement more easily.
Attenuates infrared light, as well as visible and UV wavelengths, to maintain color neutrality and suppress color casts due to increased exposure lengths.
The 15-layer Firecrest coating has been applied directly to the outside of the filter glass by way of a vacuum-formed, hard-coated, electrolytic process. The multi-coating is water- and scratch-resistance for greater overall durability.
Schott Superwite glass promotes maintained image clarity and its 2mm-thick design is compatible with the Formatt-Hitech 85mm Filter Holder.

Formatt Hitech FC85ND1.5 reviews

85 x 85mm Firecrest ND 1.5 Filter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from At last! No noticeable color tint! This is the first ND filter I've used, regardless of manufacturer, that has given me no discernible color tint. I can't wait for my 10-stop to arrive. Four stars because I'd still much prefer that these filters come with the foam light block preinstalled. I'm pretty sure the manufacturer would do a neater job of it than I've been able to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top notch I love the Firecrest filters. Virtually no color cast�and very nicely made. I have this one and the 10 stop filter and those have covered all of my long exposure needs.
