Formatt Hitech SuperSlim overview

  • 1Description

Featuring a unique 15-layer multi-coated design, the Formatt-Hitech 82mm Firecrest SuperSlim Circular Polarizer Filter helps to reduce reflections and glare as well as increase the overall saturation of an image. This unique polarizer filter is characterized by the advanced Firecrest coating, which offers full attenuation of UV light for increased clarity and contrast, as well as a marked reduction in surface reflections and protection against scratching.

A polarizing 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.

The SuperSlim aluminum alloy filter ring measures 7.5mm-thick and its slim design helps to minimize the likelihood of vignetting. This filter features front threads for stacking additional filters or attaching a lens cap.

Reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface.
Arrange and filter directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light allowing for the absorption of much of the light.
Lessens haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
Strongest effect when used at a 90° from the sun.
The 15-layer Firecrest coating has been applied directly to 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.
Firecrest coating attenuates UV contamination, as well as surface reflections, for increased contrast, clarity, and acuity.
Schott Superwite glass is used in order to maintain clear image quality and high light transmission.
The aluminum alloy SuperSlim filter ring measures 7.5mm-thick and features front threads for stacking additional filters.

Formatt Hitech SuperSlim reviews

82mm Firecrest SuperSlim Circular Polarizer Filter is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes everything look better! I use this on the front of a Canon Tilt Shift 24mm lens for architectural jobs. Due to its slim design here's no vignetting. Easy to dial out reflections in mirrors and windows as well as working its magic on skies. I have had no issues with flares. The only possible drawback is price. I have bought cheap filters before and regretted it. After paying $$for this lens it made lots of sense to put a really good filter on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, excellent, excellent! Excellent, excellent, excellent! I love this filter. The best circular Pola I have owned. The moment I put it on my lens for a test I knew I was a fan of Firecrest. There is minimal color shift as the filter is rotated and minimal light loss...truly a precision tool. I got this Pola to replace one that broke...currently using it on a 16mm-35mm Canon Lens. I am now happy the old one broke because the vignetting that haunted me from my old filter is forever gone!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I really wanted to love this CPL. At first I was ecstatic with the results. A few more uses into it I started to notice I get a strong vignette on my Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 while attached to my D750. What's really the killer is the fact that the class is completely loose within the polarizer's frame now rendering practically unusable for me. The D750's shutter shake combined with loose glass can completely wreck HDR photos.� This product doesn't have many reviews so I went out on a limb and I really wish I didn't.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Glass fell out of the ring I bought this on October 19, 2017. The other day, the glass popped out of the ring as I was installing the lens cap. B&H won't take it back because it's more than 30 days since the purchase. Oh well...
