The Formatt 72mm Soft Low Contrast Warm 1 Filter is for use when the sun is too bright and the shadows too dark and it is difficult to get good detail in both at the same time. Formatt Low Contrast Filters reduce contrast by allowing more shadow detail.

This filter also takes the edge off today's ultra-sharp HD lenses by softening the image. This is helpful when doing portraits or close-ups since it hides imperfections in your subject's face. In addition, it will add some warmth to the picture that will help with skin tones - especially when shooting in open shade or on a cloudy day.

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: Formatt Low Contrast Filters are available in strengths from 1 to 3 with 3 having the greatest effect

Brings back detail into deepest black
Softens the look of ultra-sharp HD lenses
Adds warmth such as when you are shooting in either open shade or a cloudy day
Creates muted pastel colors
Ideal when used in combination with other filters; for example, when used with a 0.3 Neutral Density (one-stop), you can maintain your depth of field for sharpness of image while reducing excessive highlight brightness and subtly lightening shadows
Each filter is manufactured from quality Schott-Desag B270 Crown Optical Glass
Absolute consistency in color and density to Kodak Wratten standards
Precision grinding and polishing result in unbeatable optical flatness allowing use on even ultra-long focal length lenses
Filter edges are protected with a unique frame for maximum protection and easy handling
