Formatt Hitech HT85NDSE0.9 Overview

  • 1Description

Designed to balance the overall exposure within a high-contrast scene, the 85 x 110mm Soft Edge Graduated Neutral Density 0.9 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 0.9 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 HT85NDSE0.9 Reviews

85 x 110mm Soft Edge Graduated Neutral Density 0.9 Filter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good filter for the money This is a very good filter for the price. It doesn't appear to add any color bias. It works very nicely for sunsets and other horizon shots. 3 stops (0.9) works pretty well -- keeping the foreground bright enough while the sky isn't one huge blown highlight. I use it with a copy of a Cokin P filter holder with just one slot so it doesn't vignette on my Tokina 12-24mm. The sleeve it comes in may not hold up with a lot of use. The filter is resin (plastic) and not glass. While it's likely that Singh Ray and Lee filters may be somewhat better optically, they are also priced significantly higher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Save your pennies I brought the Hitech 85MM 0.9 GND soft after the Cokin one was trashed which took less then a month. I looked at the more expensive filters from Singh-Ray, costing $s, and then since the construction is resin. I decided to give the Hitech a try, and I am glad I did, the image quality is terrific and there are durable. I am pleased with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great GND especially for the price I purchased this GND to use for panoramas and other landscape-style photos for my DSLR. I have to say that I am extremely pleased with this filter especially for the price. It fits the Cokin P adapter perfectly and stays securely in place. It's long enough to adjust where the transition line is vertically to perfectly line up with the horizon. The filter itself is very light and scratch resistant. The tonal effect of the filter is spot on and exactly what I was looking for. My only complaint is that the plastic sleeve that it comes in isn't quite enough to protect the filter itself. I would highly recommend purchasing a filter case to hold this and other resin filters. For the price, this is an excellent choice. Of course, it's not as nice as the Singh Ray filters, but for 1/5 of the cost, it most certainly is not bad and is much better quality than the Cokin brand GND filters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sweet Spot This GND has allowed me to get the shots I wanted. Plain and simple. Best features: Adjustable horizon, smooth transition, and balanced images. Minor annoyances: Storage. Find a better container to avoid dust and scratches. It provides a nice, balanced image when the scene has one part brightly lit and the rest is obscured in shadow - such as the reflection of fall leaves along a river bank. It provides a nice, smooth transition when evening out exposure. I've also been able to use it to create hard edge transitions by placing the edge of the filter across the scene, but obviously this only works some of the time. Use it with a holder or by hand (for quick shots) All in all, good filter and a good value. I chose this filter over the Cokin version because I've read in many reviews the Cokin version gives images a magenta cast, so be warned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Middle-Ground ND Grad System So I did a lot of research on-line. Essentially these are the next best thing to Cokin/Tiffen ND grads but not near a good as Lee ND grads. The Cokin/Tiffen create a horrible color cast (purpleish color) whereas the Hitec only slightly shift color cast (slight purple, eaisly correctable in post). About 1/3rd the cost of Lee and only about $5 more than the Cokin/Tiffen brand.
