Formatt Hitech BF 72-1-SEANT Overview

The Formatt 72mm Graduated Antique Suede 1 Filter is one of the most widely used category of filters. It enhances reality, adding a touch of subtlety or drama to the image.

Often it is necessary or desirable to balance the light intensity in one part of a scene with another. This is especially true in situations where you don't have total light control, as in bright contrasty landscapes.

Sometimes it is also desirable to add color to part of the photograph. For example, to add blue to only the sky. Formatt Color Graduated filters are half-color, half-clear, with a graduated transition for blending into the scene. They are available in an array of colors. Soft/hard indicates the degree of transition.

Some of the most popular applications include

Adding color excitement to a drab sky

Formatt Grads are available in four types

Soft Edge - Half clear, half coloured with a smooth transition to full density. Generally used with medium to wide angle lenses
Hard Edge - Half clear, half coloured with a definite less subtle transition. For use with long focal length lenses
Razor Edge - As hard edge but with a solid transition line for shooting corners of buildings, knife-edge horizons or when a very bold transition is required
Attenuator / Blender - The grad line is right at one edge of the filter so the colour change runs from top to bottom. Perfect for irregular objects and skylines
