The Formatt Quick Start 2 HD/HDV Depth of Field & Outdoor Filter Kit gives you the flexibility to get shots not ordinarily achievable without any kind of filtration. Specifically designed for use with High Definition filming, the Depth of Field & Outdoor Filter Kit will prove to be a useful tool for serious amateur and professional videographers

HD Neutral Density (ND) 0.6 Schott-Desag B270 Crown Optical Glass Filter
The Formatt HD Neutral Density (ND) 0.6 Schott-Desag B270 Crown Optical Glass Filter has been specially formulated as a result of extensive research into new applications for molecular A.C.T. dyes. The filters give more of a neutral grey without the specular effects from the particulate coatings of the current neutral density and neutral density graduated filters, which allows the user more precise control.

HD Graduated Neutral Density (ND) 0.6 Water White Glass Filter - Soft Edge
The Formatt HD Graduated Neutral Density (ND) 0.6 Water White Glass Filter - Soft Edge has been specially formulated as a result of extensive research into new applications for molecular A.C.T. dyes. The filters give more of a neutral grey without the specular effects from the particulate coatings of the current neutral density and neutral density graduated filters.

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. Exposing for the foreground will produce a washed-out, over-exposed sky while exposing for the sky will leave the foreground dark and under-exposed. This filter enables cloud detail to be kept correctly exposed in the picture.

Determining which graduated neutral density filter yields ideal results for any given lighting situation takes knowledge, experience and a collection of such filters. Choose the filter strength which adjusts the lighting to stay within the exposure latitude (greatest difference between bright/dark values) which still shows details in both of the digital or film medium in use.

Speaking generally, the 2-stop value (ND 0.6 - the filter's clear portion allows 4x more light to pass vs. darkest portion) effectively compensates average bright sky-to-foreground situations, and the soft transition is applicable more often to a scene than the hard transition

Hi Def Circular Schott-Desag B270 Crown Optical Glass Polarizer
The Formatt Circular Schott-Desag B270 Crown Optical Glass Polarizer - Light rays which are reflected become polarized. Polarizing filters are used to select which light rays enter your camera lens. They can remove unwanted reflections from non-metallic surfaces such as water or glass and also saturate colors providing better contrast. The effect can be seen through the viewfinder and changed by rotating the filter. The filter factor varies according to how the filter is rotated and its orientation to the sun.

Formatt's Crown Polarizer enables you to achieve a level of optical performance previously unavailable. The polarizing film is fabricated between two pieces of Formatt's crystal clear white water optical glass. The absolute clarity of the glass combined with advanced polarizing material make crown Polarizing filters particularly effective on demanding scenes.

Note: Circular polarizers are specifically designed for use with auto-focus SLR cameras (They will also work on manual systems and video cameras without problems) - This kit does not come with a storage pouch

Hi Def filters do not experience color shift - Specifically designed for use with High Definition filming
Optically consistent from filter to filter
All Formatt filters are finished with a unique edge frame offering maximum protection against chipping, surface scratches and enables easy handling and cleaning
The secret to Formatt's consistency in filter design lies in its unique "Absorbing Cell Technology" (A.C.T.); This unique process allows color correct dyes to be applied to optically pure, wafer thin absorbing cells and offers a controllability that ensures the smoothest grad lines and consistent color across the whole filter surface.
This A.C.T. process is revolutionary compared with conventional filter dying techniques by eliminating the need to directly coat the glass surface itself; The repeatable performance gained through A.C.T. ensures that at any time you have to swap like filters for like filters mid shoot you can do so with confidence with no discernible differences in color or density.

Neutral Density filters have four main uses

To enable slow shutter speeds to be used, especially with high speed films, 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 1/2)
ND.6 (exposure adjustment = 2 stops, reduces ISO 1/4)
ND.9 (exposure adjustment = 3 stops, reduces ISO 1/8)
