Formatt Hitech BF 43-3-CLSEF overview

  • 1Description

The Formatt 43mm HD/DV Soft Effect Clear 3 Filter is designed with the HD (High Definition) shooter in mind. Today's HD lenses are ultrasharp and often generate an image that is not as flattering to a subject as one might desire. This incredible technological breakthrough gives HD shooters the touch of softness they want but with no resulting loss of contrast or detail.

Using a sophisticated series of tiny "lenslets", the filter allows a certain amount of light to pass through unaffected. The rest is bounced around inside creating spherical aberration, avoiding the risk of secondary focus at short focal lengths, as may happen with other so called "soft" filters. These lenslets eliminate the moire patterns often generated by the highly sensitive surfaces in today's HD lenses and digital sensors.

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.

Note: HD Soft Effects Clear filters are available in strengths from 1 to 3-with 3 having the greatest effect.
