Designed specifically for photographers on the move, this Formatt-Hitech 85mm Elia Locardi Signature Edition Travel Filter Kit is an all-in-one bundle containing three 85mm-wide neutral density filters along with the 85mm Aluminum Filter Holder and an adapter ring for attaching the holder to lenses with 77mm filter threads. Additionally, a filter wallet is also included, to protect the filters from damage during travel, as well as an exclusive Elia Locardi 40-page booklet offering inspiration and insight into his photography.
The included 85 x 85mm ProStop IRND 3.0 and 1.2 filters are solid neutral density filters providing 10 and 4 stop reductions in exposure, respectively. The consistent 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 ProStop IRND filters have been optimized for use with digital sensors and promote nearly flat attenuation of both visible 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 both spectra in order to eliminate color casts and ensure cleaner, truer blacks.
Graduated Neutral Density
The included 85 x 110mm Soft Edge Graduated 0.9 filter helps to darken specific areas of an image, such as bright skies, while allowing for a normal, unaffected exposure in the other regions of the image. The filter is densest at the edge and tapers to clear by the middle, with a soft-edged line of transition between the density and clear areas for working in situations where there is not a distinct line of separation between the bright and dark zones of the image. Neutral density filters do not affect the coloration of the image and the 0.9 density provides a 3 stop reduction in light from entering the lens.
Additional Kit Components
Filter Holder and Adapter Ring
The included 85mm Aluminum Modular Filter Holder accepts up to three filters at once, but can be modified to accept differing numbers of filters through the use of optional spacers and screws depending on personal needs. It attaches to the lens through the use of the included 77mm Adapter Ring.
A three-pocket filter wallet is included to protect your filters during travel and storage.
Elia Locardi Travel Photography Booklet
Besides the filters and holder included in the kit, a 40-page booklet of Elia Locardi's work is also included for inspiration and a closer look at how he utilizes this system of filters for his own photography.
