Formatt Hitech BF 77-3-HESKY overview

  • 1Description

The Formatt 77mm Graduated Skyfire 3 Filter is one of the most widely used category of filters. It enhances reality, adding a touch of subtlety or drama to the image.

The Skyfire filter is a more intense version of the Sunset filter. Colors are more saturated. Sunsets will be even more vivid than with the Sunset filter.

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.

Note: Formatt Graduated Skyfire Filters comes in strengths from 1-3 with 3 having the greatest effect

Some of the Most Popular Applications Include

Adding color excitement to a drab sky
Changing the specific color in a scene to create a desired special effect
Enhancing the existing color or creating subtle color drama
Creating more balanced exposure in uneven lighting conditions

Formatt Grads are Available in Four Types

Soft Edge - Half clear, half colored with a smooth transition to full density. Generally used with medium to wide angle lenses
Hard Edge - Half clear, half colored 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
Blender - The grad line is right at one edge of the filter so the color change runs from top to bottom. Perfect for irregular objects and skylines

    Formatt Hitech BF 77-3-HESKY reviews

    77mm Graduated Skyfire 3 Filter is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WHEN YOUU NEED MORE THAN A SUNSET FILTER I ordered this filter for use on those rare occasions when even a sunset or sunrise filter just won't add enough color to the scene. The77mm Graduated Skyfire 3 Filter by Formatt Hitech is well constructed with three different colors blending together smoothly from red on the top, to orange in the middle, and then a light yellow on the bottom of the colored area which extends to the middle of the filter with clear on the lower half. I'm very impressed with the design and performance of this filter although I will probably use it very rarely. You should be aware that this is one of those unusual filters that B&H can't always keep in stock and has to wait for it come from the manufacturer in Aberdare, Scotland. Mine took more than 2 months to arrive, but it was worth the wait! I'm not sure if this is the case with sizes other than 77mm.
