Formatt Hitech FC72ND2.4 overview

  • 1Description

The Formatt-Hitech 72mm Firecrest ND 2.4 Filter is a solid neutral density filter providing an 8-stop reduction in exposure. This 2.4 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. The filter is set within a 5.5mm-thick SuperSlim aluminum filter ring, which features front threads for stacking additional filters or attaching a lens cap.

ND 2.4 filter darkens the image, allowing you to photograph with a longer shutter speed or wider aperture than normally required.
Providing an 8-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 is set within a 5.5mm-thick SuperSlim aluminum filter ring.

Formatt Hitech FC72ND2.4 reviews

72mm Firecrest ND 2.4 Filter is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! In the past I've tried strong inexpensive ND filters. With film they're ok but with digital infared pollution would kill the images. Especially on my old Nikon D40 that does not resist IR pollution as good as my newer DSLRs. I tried the Firecrest 8 stop and wow! There is just a tiny hint of color shift, even with the D40 but white balance settings or post can easily fix it. And there's no noticable loss of image quality with it. Why did I get 8 stop instead of 10? Because in bright light I can still see through the viewfinder and get a good image in live view. But beware-in sunlight you may not get quite as slow of a shutter speed you want. With my D7100 at it's lowest ISO(ISO 100) and f/16, the slowest shutter speed I could get was 1.6 seconds-4 secs and slower are best for waterfalls. My next Firecrest will be 9 or 10 stop. And the Firecrest has a front thread despite being slim. You CAN attach a lens cap or hood to the front of it.
