The Formatt-Hitech 10mm Firecrest ND 3.0 Filter is a solid neutral density filter providing a 10 stop reduction in exposure. This 3.0 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 5.9 x 5.9" / 150 x 150mm and is 0.08" / 2mm-thick, making it compatible with the LEE SW-150 Filter Holder.

ND 3.0 filter darkens the image, allowing you to photograph with a longer shutter speed or wider aperture than normally required.
Providing a 10 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 LEE SW-150 Filter Holder.

150 x 150mm Firecrest ND 3.0 Filter is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good color accuracy Unlike the old dyed resin filters, the color accuracy of this filter is very good. Correcting against a grey card, a 17 minute exposure ended up with my control shot at 4500K, and the Firecrest shot at 5200K. So slightly warm, but barely noticeable for a 17m exposure. Appears to be slightly darker than a true ND 3.0, at least my copy was. Might be necessary to increase exposure time slightly a bit more than what a calculator would tell you. NOTE: These filters are 2mm GLASS and will break. They come in a hardshell plastic case, which is nice... but I'd recommend a good filter bag and being very careful with it.
