The Series 9 Blender Chocolate 3 Filter from Formatt resembles a traditional graduated filter except that it is colored on top with a gradual transition to more subtle at the bottom. Graduated filters transition somewhere in the middle of the filter whereas Blenders transition over the entire length of the filter. The Blender Chocolate filter finds its best use when you wish to enhance the magenta/sepia end of the spectrum. Such a filter will add a distinct dynamic to an Autumn landscape photo.

A Blender Chocolate 3 filter is the strongest version of this filter and will create the maximum effect possible. The tint will be significant and the overall warmth will be more than noticeable. Autumn landscapes will be bolstered since the filter affects earth tones.

For those who enjoy outdoor, scenic or architectural photography, Blenders are the perfect choice. Whether trying to affect color change or enhance a mood, Blenders give you the edge you need.

Adding color excitement to a drab sky
Creating more balanced exposure in uneven lighting conditions
Interesting effects can be achieved using two different Blenders, (one upside down) one of which affects the top half of the image with the other affecting the bottom half
Changing the specific color in a scene to create a desired special effect
Enhancing the existing color or creating subtle color drama
Available in the same colors as graduated filters

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
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
