Formatt Hitech HT 42HDSTFB4 overview

  • 1Description

The 4 x 4" Soft Tone Fine Bronze 2 Filter from Hitech is an excellent choice when you need a filter that will flatter your subject by not only helping to eliminate skin imperfections but by bringing a pleasing warmish tone to the shot. This filter is especially effective when using HD technology that tends to be ultra sharp. The overall effect is gentle, emphasizing skin tones and helping to make you subject more at ease during photo, interview sessions.

The grade 2 version of this filter continues the softening effect and will help minimize skin imperfections even more. The sense of warmth is also increased.

Hitech filters are made from CR39 resin. The filters are produced to exacting tolerances that permit you to change filters mid-shoot or from day to day and know that your image quality will remain consistent

The Hitech filter system is made by Formatt - an English company that is renowned for its high manufacturing standards and consistency of quality. Their CR39 resin is manufactured in large sheets that are oven cured. Their exclusive Absorbing Cell Technology absorbs color as opposed to other filters that are coated. Once cured, they are sliced up to create individual filters. In this way, maximum consistency is maintained from filter to filter. This becomes crucial when you wish to change filters either mid shoot or from day to day
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 dying 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
