Formatt Hitech 67mm Firecrest Neutral Density 5.4 Solar Eclipse Filter (18-Stops)
Key Features
  • For Safe Solar Eclipse Photography
  • 5.4 Filter Factor, 18-Stop
  • No Color-Cast or Loss of Sharpness
  • Allows Reduced Shutter Speed
The Formatt Hitech 67mm Firecrest Neutral Density 5.4 Solar Eclipse Filter produces images with a neutral color tone and no color-cast or loss of sharpness. Its 18-stop exposure reduction, built-in infrared cut, and 5.4 density blocks radiation outside the visual spectrum that imaging sensors are able to detect, which can cause interference with capturing clear images, and creates a darkening of the entire image that makes it effective for solar and solar eclipse photography. With this filter, users can capture photographs with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. This is strictly a photographic filter and is not suitable for direct solar viewing with the naked eye.

SAFETY FIRST: Observing the Sun without the proper protection may result in serious personal injury, including permanent eye damage and blindness, and/or damage to equipment. Never point an optic at the sun without an approved solar filter on the front of the optic. For direct solar viewing, viewing the sun through an optic, or when using cameras with an optical viewfinder, ensure your filter is ISO 12312-2 (also written as ISO 12312-2:2015) certified. Never use photographic neutral density filters for direct solar viewing, viewing the sun through an optic, or when using cameras with an optical viewfinder.

Formatt Hitech FC67ECLP5.4 Overview

The Formatt Hitech 67mm Firecrest Neutral Density 5.4 Solar Eclipse Filter produces images with a neutral color tone and no color-cast or loss of sharpness. Its 18-stop exposure reduction, built-in infrared cut, and 5.4 density blocks radiation outside the visual spectrum that imaging sensors are able to detect, which can cause interference with capturing clear images, and creates a darkening of the entire image that makes it effective for solar and solar eclipse photography. With this filter, users can capture photographs with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. This is strictly a photographic filter and is not suitable for direct solar viewing with the naked eye.

Warning; under no circumstances should these filters be used to view a solar eclipse with the naked eye. These products are strictly for on-camera use. These filters do not offer the same level of optical protection as solar eclipse viewing glasses and using these to look directly at the sun before, during or after a solar eclipse could permanently damage your eyesight.

Formatt-Hitech will not be held liable for any costs, associated expenses or medical claims relating to damage to your eyesight as a result of improper use of these filters.

Due to the extremely long exposure times these filters make possible, the risk of light leaking in through the camera body and manifesting in your shot is high. We recommend that you take steps to mask the eyepieces/viewfinders and and ports to prevent this from happening. Many photographers use a low adhesive black tape for this purpose however it is your responsibility to ensure that anything you affix to your camera will not cause damage to the camera body or functionality. Another option is wrapping the camera in a thick black cloth although you should leave some areas of the body exposed to dissipate heat.

Even with the extreme density of these filters, we recommend you contact your camera manufacturer to assess the suitability of your camera for shooting directly into the sun. Formatt-Hitech will not be held liable for any damage caused by continued exposure of your camera sensor to direct sunlight with or without our filters in place.

question

I have a Nikon D90 DSLR, is it safe to look through the viewfinder when photographing a solar eclipse with the Formatt Hitech 67 mm Firecrest Neutral density 5.4 Solar Eclipse filter?
Asked by: Anonymous
WARNING! Under no circumstances should these filters be used to view an eclipse with the naked eye. These products are STRICTLY for on-camera use. These filters do not offer the same level of protection as solar eclipse viewing glasses and using these to look directly at the solar eclipse could permanently damage your eyesight. This is from the manufacturer's web site. It does not seem to address using the viewfinder on a camera but rather looking through the filter without using a camera.

question

i have monopod would this be alternative to tripod for taking pictures of solar eclipse?
Asked by: Chris
I believe you will need a tripod. It would be difficult - but not impossible to use a monopod. Get out and practice near the timeframe to ensure you can get enough tilt on whatever you chose to use, and good luck to you!

question

Will this work with p900 nikon for the solar eclipse? Is it full apiture ?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, the Nikon COOLPIX P900 has a 67mm filter thread, so this filter will fit it. It is full aperture - it will cover the front of the lens completely. I just bought one and have been doing some solar photography with great results.
