Formatt Hitech FC82ND3.0 overview

  • 1Description

The Formatt-Hitech 82mm 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. 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 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 is set within a 5.5mm-thick SuperSlim aluminum filter ring.

Formatt Hitech FC82ND3.0 reviews

82mm Firecrest ND 3.0 Filter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ND filter for Long Exposure I have the Lee Big Stopper, Formatt Hi-tech IRND filters, Vu Scion Q ND filters, and now this Firecrest filter. The Firecrest is absolutely the best for color reproduction. All filters have a color cast that needs to be fixed after capture, but this one filters the different color wavelengths most evenly. I have performed a long exposure during broad daylight with an X-rite Color Checker Passport and compared the before and after of the custom profile, and it is impressively close! Remember that it is essential to cover the eye-piece of your camera’s viewfinder to avoid light leaks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as expected I purchased the 82mm with a 77-82mm step-up ring to avoid vignetting the corners when used over my 77mm Polarizer but that did not work.� With my test the ND filter provided true colors and exposure times were correct. The multi coated lens does a wonderful job of cutting reflections.� Construction is very good, firm with knurled� edges that work well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Greenish Color Cast I was interested in this filter because of its thin profile, it?s price, and the two positive reviews. The build quality is fine, but this filter imparts an obvious green cast on all images.
