Formatt Hitech BF 3-BW23AORA4 overview

  • 1Description

The Formatt 37mm Orange 23A Filter is used in black and white photography to suppress blue and greatly brighten red. It produces contrast effects that darken sky and water, as in more dramatic architectural and scenic photography.

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.

Clouds are dramatically improved almost to the mood of a thunderstorm: darkens blue sky creating dramatic contrast between sky and clouds
It is more effective in cutting through haze, and moonlight effects are easily accomplished: creates greater contrast between foliage and flowers

Absorbing Cell Technology

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 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.
Each filter is guaranteed flatness to a maximum 2-wave value and comes with an individual reading from a laser interferometer. Every filter is carefully verified with a densitometer and spectrophotometer to ensure consistent and accurate transmission, before leaving the factory - the result is an absolute purity of image that eliminates any unwanted colorcast caused by conventional greenish soda-lime glass.
