The Formatt 6.6 x 6.6" Combination Light Balancing 81EF/Neutral Density (ND) 0.9 Schott-Desag B270 Crown Optical Glass Filter combines the effects of an 81EF Light Balancing filter with a Neutral Density filter.

An 81EF filter (the strongest in the 81 series) will more than replace the yellow missing from the image and place all skin tones on a distinctly "warmish" level.

Neutral Density (ND)
ND filters appear gray and reduce the amount of light reaching the film; they have no effect on color balance. They are very useful when you want to shoot high-speed film outdoors on a very bright day.

Determining which neutral density filter yields ideal results for any given lighting situation takes knowledge, experience and a collection of such filters. Speaking generally, the 2-stop value (ND 0.6) effectively compensates average situations.

Formatt, a company with three generations of professional filter-making experience, produces every filter to the highest technical standards. The finest materials, together with state of-the-art production technology, have resulted in a standard of optical excellence unmatched anywhere else.

Neutral Density Filters Have Four Main Uses

To enable slow shutter speeds to be used, especially with high-speed film, to record movement in subjects such as waterfalls, clouds, or cars
To decrease depth of field by allowing wider apertures to be used, which helps separate subjects from their background
To decrease the effective ISO of high-speed film (above ISO 400), and allow it to be used outdoors in bright situations
To allow cine and video cameras (which have fixed shutter speeds) to film subjects such as snow, sand or other bright scenes which could cause overexposure

Neutral Density Factors

ND.3 (exposure adjustment = 1 stop, reduces ISO to 1/2)
ND.6 (exposure adjustment = 2 stops, reduces ISO to 1/4)
ND.9 (exposure adjustment = 3 stops, reduces ISO to 1/8)
ND 1.2 (exposure adjustment = 4 stops, reduces ISO to 1/16)
