The Cokin P (85 x 85mm) Coral 1 Filter from Hitech allows you to add color or enhance the contrast of your image. This filter is made to the highest technical standards that deliver a filter that can be used with confidence. Tolerances are manufactured to such a high degree that similar filters can be exchanged from day to day without any trace of difference in the color. Hitech filters are 1.5mm thick and do not bend like traditional resin filters. A solid filter generates the effect over the entire image as opposed to the graduated versions that are color effected on top and clear on the bottom.

Coral Filters can be considered as both Color Correction and Color Effects Filters and are used to warm up cool lighting situations such as on overcast days. Coral filters are available in many densities and are ideal for maintaining a consistent color balance throughout a whole day of shooting or to create a sunset or dawn effect at any time of the day. A Coral 1 filter is the first step on the Coral ladder and adds a touch of yellow to your image. It adds warmth and is often used to create orangey skies.
The secret to Hitech'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.
Hitech filters are made by 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.
