Formatt Hitech BF 82-ND2.4HD overview

  • 1Description

The Formatt-Hitech 82mm HD ND 2.4 Filter is a solid neutral density filter providing a 8 stop reduction in exposure. This 2.4 density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or longer shutter speed than normally required. By slowing your exposure time or increasing your aperture, you are able to control depth of field and convey movement more easily.

This filter is constructed from Schott Superwhite glass to maintain high optical clarity and is set within a 4mm-thick metal filter ring.

2.4 ND filter darkens the image, allowing you to photograph with a longer shutter speed or wider aperture than normally required.
Providing a 8 stop exposure reduction, this filter allows you to control depth of field and convey movement more easily.
Filter does not affect coloration of the image and is ideal for use with other filters.

    Formatt Hitech BF 82-ND2.4HD reviews

    82mm HD ND 2.4 Filter is rated 1.7 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Serious color cast When I pulled this filter out of the box three things struck me. First, the filter was covered in oily finger prints. Second, the black finish was inconsistant and even missing in some places. And third, the filter is a deep magenta color; not even in the neighborhood of neutral. This is the second vendor I've tried. Lee was the first and theirs had a ridiculous blue tint. I own a B+W 10 stop ND and it is actually neutral. I've been hunting for a strong ND filter for my Canon 16-35mm lens. B+W has one, but it's crazy expensive in the 82mm size. I took a couple of test shots with the Formatt ND filter and was able to correct the color issue for the most part in Lightroom. Be warned that the corrections are not simple or quick. After tweaking it for half an hour I produced a recipe that looks 95% right. ... I honestly don't know how this item can be sold as neutral. The filter looks and feels cheaply made with no attention to detail or color accuracy. I'm pretty easy to please in general, but honestly...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Quality Filter I was looking for a 3.0 filter in 82mm but the prices on those were ridiculous, so I got this one instead. If anything, this is more neutral than my B+W 3.0 filter. It is sturdily made and the threads fit smoothly onto the lens. The only reason I am not giving it five stars, is it did not come in a plastic case, just the cardboard box. I shoot in the field and mud and rain are not going to be kind to cardboard, nor will it protect as well in my crowded camera bag or in other situations as a plastic case would.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Strong Red Cast I too was hoping to find a reasonably priced 8-10 stop 82mm ND filter and was disappointed to receive this one, with a strong red/magenta cast. You can tell as soon as you take it out of the box and look through it, that it is not neutral. I calculated about 7 stops of difference to get the same exposure with and without the filter. For those who don't mind color correcting every photo, it will work. Otherwise, find something else.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Eh... This filter was not so good, magenta cast, smudges and finger prints on it straight from the box, all in all not a good experience

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth it I usually buy cheap stuff and try to make it work and I don't expect to much. But this one was like putting piece of some weird gel that gives magenta color overlay and distortion near the edges of the picture. Really terrible. I have to return it. Save some extra $ and buy a good one

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Neutral For the price, I got what I expected, but as other reviews have said, this is NOT a neutral density filter. With a manual WB, or correction in RAW, it is functional, but nothing like a B&W (but also, not as expensive).
