Formatt Hitech FC100ND3.9 overview

  • 1Description

The Formatt-Hitech 13mm Firecrest ND 3.9 Filter is a solid neutral density filter providing a 13 stop reduction in exposure. This 3.9 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 3.9 x 3.9" / 100 x 100mm and is 0.08" / 2mm-thick, making it compatible with the Formatt-Hitech 100mm Filter Holder.

ND 3.9 filter darkens the image, allowing you to photograph with a longer shutter speed or wider aperture than normally required.
Providing a 13 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 100mm Filter Holder.

Formatt Hitech FC100ND3.9 reviews

100 x 100mm Firecrest ND 3.9 Filter is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fills The Void Between The 10 & 16 Stop Much of my work involves 3 to 5 minute exposures mid morning where the 10 stop is not enough and 16 stops is too much. The 3.9 (13 stops) gives me what I need. I have not had any problems with color cast with the firecrest filters and highly recommend them over other brands I have used for color work. I use the Sensei Pro holder system with these filters as I got tired of replacing scratched filters using the Hitech holder system and the Sensei Pro fits my needs better in other ways as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect filter for my use. I had the 10 stop and 16 stop filters before I got this (13 stop) one. �It seams to be the perfect density for the time I want my long exposures to be with low ISO and apertures stopped down to the f/11 - f/18 range. �The 10 stop was just too short and the 16 was way too long. �This one is just right for my taste.
