Formatt Hitech Firecrest UV 400nm Filter Overview

Designed to eliminate UV contamination up to 400nm, the Formatt-Hitech 95mm Firecrest SuperSlim UV 400 Filter is specially designed for use when photographing at high altitudes and in snow, and serves to reduce bluish casts and haze as well as increase contrast and clarity.

This filter is constructed from Schott Superwite glass for maintained image quality and is set in an aluminum filter ring. The SuperSlim ring measures 5.5mm-thick and its slim design helps to minimize the likelihood of vignetting. This filter features front threads to permit stacking of additional filters or the attachment of a lens cap.

Absorbs UV wavelengths up to 400nm and reduces bluish cast of daylight.
Works as general protection filter to reduce dust, moisture, and scratches from reaching lens elements.
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.

question

what is the extent of the 2.stop shading...halfway, third.way of the circle ?...pics are not helping..
Asked by: Grzegorz R.
It should be a standard half-filled graduated ND filter, but we agree the photo is very bad and does not properly show this.

question

Safe for solar eclipse photography?
Asked by: Rong
This filter would not be safe for shooting a solar eclipse. The Formatt Hitech Firecrest 100mm Holder Kit with 5.4 (18 Stop) Eclipse Filter B&H # FOFCHKE54100 is a suitable filter.

question

With a RED MX or Dragon, does this require an extra IR filter or is it built in like their other filters?
Asked by: Jason H.
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.

question

Is this compatible with the Cokin P holder? Would it give me enough coverage for a 67mm leans thread? (35mm wide lens based on 35mm frame) Or would I need to get 85mm x 85mm size filter ? Thank you
Asked by: Nikolay E.
No, it is not. The Formatt Hitech 67 x 85mm Firecrest ND 4.8 Filter would be compatible for use with the Formatt Hitech 67mm Aluminum Modular Filter Holder, B&H # FOMAH67. The above filter and holder are similar to Cokin A-series holder and are only good for lenses with filter threads from 36mm to 62mm in size. If you need a similar filter for use with a Cokin P filter holder, then the Formatt Hitech 85 x 85mm Firecrest ND 4.8 Filter, B&H # FOFCIRN4.8CP, would instead be the correct filter for your needs. The Cokin P-series accommodates lenses with filter threads from 48mm to 82mm in size, and would work with a lens with 67mm filter threads.

Will this filter fit inside the Wine Country ...

Will this filter fit inside the Wine Country Camera 150 mm x 150 mm filter vault? I see the Formatt Hitech is 4 mm thick. I think the Wine Country Blackstone filters are 2mm thick but I can find no information to verify this.
Asked by: Mike
The Wine Country filter holders have 2mm slots, so that filter is not compatible.
