The Series 9 Black Supermist 3 Filter from Formatt is an excellent portrait filter for someone who desires a filter that softens without making the image over diffused. This gentle filter both reduces contrast and sharpness but not to the point where it looks overly diffused. Soft details and blemishes will be minimized and your subject will take on a flattering softness but not look like it's been extremely manipulated.

The #3 Black Supermist reduces contrast and sharpness but still retains and overall sharpness even though the rough edge has been taken off the inherent sharpness of the lens.

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.

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 dyeing 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
