Formatt Hitech HT85NDSE0.6 overview

  • 1Description

Designed to balance the overall exposure within a high-contrast scene, the 85 x 110mm Soft Edge Graduated Neutral Density 0.6 Filter from Formatt-Hitech is ideal for situations involving both bright and dark areas, such as an open sky and shadowed foreground. Half of the filter has 0.6 neutral density and the other half is clear, with a soft-edged transition between the two that is ideally suited for use with medium and wide-angle lenses or when there is an uneven, undulating horizon. By reducing the exposure in selective areas, you are able to balance the overall exposure of the scene in order to gain detail in both bright and dark areas.

This filter is constructed from lightweight, durable optical resin, which is also designed to maintain image clarity and not affect the overall color balance of the scene. It measures 3.3 x 4.3" / 85 x 110 mm, is 1.5mm thick, and is suitable for use in 85mm filter holders.

Formatt Hitech HT85NDSE0.6 reviews

85 x 110mm Soft Edge Graduated Neutral Density 0.6 Filter is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Filter I purchased this filter for a trip out to Arizona and it turned out to be one of the more frequently used items in my bag. I fits great in a standard Cokin P series mount and provides a nice contrast to your shots that might normally be washed out. The one thing I did not care for was the packaging. The filter comes in a cheap plastic envelope which offers absolutely no protection from scratches and makes it really hard to keep it clean. The only reason why I mention this is because I've purchased cheaper P series filters that came in a hard case. I would strongly recommend a pouch or case, to ensure you protect your investment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Neutral, Affordable I find the 2-stop soft ND and hard edge ND to be the most versatile. The HiTech ND Grads are very neutral, only occasionally showing a light magenta tint (much better than cheaper competition. They're fairly durable, but after hand-holding these filters against my lenses for a couple years they got too scratched to keep using. But they're cheap enough that I'm not bothered replacing them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like sunglasses for your lens! It prevents overexposing a bright blue sky in landscape photography. Works beautifully. Only problem I had was, when attached to my 16-35mm ultra wide angle zoom, the Cokin adapter shows up along the edges of photo. You will need to crop your photo's to avoid the dark edges. ...Product was ok.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute best filter for the price! I purchased this filter after spending hours reading reviews on different filters. Basically, you can go really expensive and purchase a Lee filter, or you can go cheap and get a Cokin or Hitech filter. From what I read, the Cokin has issues with adding some color to the images, and Hitech had almost no complaints in that regard. I went with the Hitech and am very pleased. My images have turned out sharp, and I don't see any signs of any color deterioration, or any extra hues. The only thing I can think of that would be a problem is the case it comes in. It's more of a packaging. You will need to purchase a filter holder to keep in your bag for it. Also, you will want to purchase a Cokin size P filter holder (or mount) if you want this filter attached to the front of your lense. As someone who is very picky (many call me OCD), I'm very glad I purchased this filter!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Magenta color cast Nice price but I was very disappointed after all the glowing reviews on this site for this product. It may be a QC issue with their latest batch, but all 3 Hitech filters (2 stop and 3stop GND and 4 stop ND filter) had a pretty terrible magenta color cast. I wouldn't spend money on these unless you can be sure that you're going to receive one that has no perceivable color cast.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good... I have only used this filter once so far, but was quite satisfied. My camera is an Olympus OMD EM5 and the lenses are correspondingly small. This filter is just the right fit for my lenses. I am using it hand held, with the camera on a tripod. It also comes in a plastic protective pouch, which is good for preventing scratches. I look forward to many more shots with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A needed tool for landscapes I saw a photographer using one of these by just holding with his hand in front of the lens. As I like to travel light it lite my light bulb. After some research I ordered this ND 0.s6 soft edge and tried it out this weekend. If you pay attention to the corner of the frame for your fingers, it works great. No funny colors it just did it's job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works nicely This filter does a pretty decent job. I think I would have been better off w/ the ND 0.9 instead. The 0.6 doesn't have much of an impact overall, it is very subtle. It's also plastic, so I wonder how well it will hold up over time. The plastic also carries a significant static charge which really attracts the dust and lint.
