The 6.5 x 6.5" Day for Night 2 Filter from Hitech is an effective solution for creating a night time or dusk appearance while photographing in daylight. This filter provides a cool color cast and lowered contrast while providing neutral density to help create the illusion of a moonlit, night time scene. It lowers overall contrast but maintains detail. Another benefit of this filter is that it can save you the financial burden of paying a film crew overtime for a night shot.
The Grade 2 Day for Night Filter provides more a night time look than the Grade 1 version. Contrast is lowered further but detail is still maintained.
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 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
Hitech filters are manufactured to exacting standards and can be counted on to be consistent filter to filter which means you can change filters mid shot or from day-to-day and still maintain the same exposure
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
