Formatt Hitech HT85AMH overview

  • 1Description

The Hitech 85mm Aluminum Modular Filter Holder is a system that will permit you to use numerous filters depending on your needs in order to create the shot you envision. It comes fully assembled to accept three 85mm-wide filters, but can be modified to accommodate fewer filters, or an additional, separately-available polarizer.

This holder is constructed from durable, rigid aluminum for increased stability while still remaining lightweight. A front screw adapter ring is required for attachment directly to the front of the lens.

You can also modify the number of filter slots with your holder; once you decide upon the number of desired slots, included brass nuts can be used to secure everything in place. Additional spacers and screws are also available to further expand the system.

Requires front screw adapter for attaching directly to lens.
Depending on the number of spacers in use, this holder can accommodate one, two, or three filters at a time, plus a polarizer with a separately-available polarizer ring.
Additional spacers can be used to further configure the filter holder to accommodate multiple filters.
Comes fully assembled for general use.

    Formatt Hitech HT85AMH reviews

    85mm Aluminum Modular Filter Holder is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much better than the plastic one! Besides the obvious features (adjustable number of stages, aluminium construction, screw-on vs. clip on) here are the 2 main benefits of this holder for me: 1) Glass filters on the stage nearest to the lens sit flush with the holder, no gap. This reduces reflections *a lot* compared to cheap plastic holders that leave a huge gap between the filter and the lens. 2) You can attach the holder to 82mm step rings instead of regular 'Cokin-style' rings. Step rings are usually cheaper but more importantly, this means you can keep a front thread on your lenses with the adapter rings on. This makes it easier to manage lens caps and use round filters like vari-NDs (not at the same time as the holder, of course). FYI if you have Cokin adapter rings already, this holder works fine with them. The only reason I gave this 4 stars: No hood or top flag option! This would turn this holder into a great micro clip-on matte box. The brass screws at the front are begging for a hood/flag attachment! I'm sure it's possible to DIY something but I'd love to see a 'clean' solution.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built; better fit I purchased this to replace my plastic Cokin P-size filter holder. Not because of any mechanical flaws with the Cokin, but because of light leaks when using the Formatt Hitech 5- and 10-stop ND filters. So far, so good. I was pleased that all my existing Cokin lens adapters fit this holder perfectly, so I didn't have to replace all of those as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Beautifully engineered from metal. Very high quality
    Date published: 2015-10-07
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from be prepared durable, very easy to install, rotate and adjust position and tension of the filter, so you do not afraid that filter change its position. This construction better than original Cokin's holder. However, for 77mm lenses it is not wide enough and starts vignetting on 24mm if not in the portrait or landscape position. To eliminate this vignetting I slightly cut inner side of the slots.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great except vignette on wide angle lens i use this holder for my haida 83 nds it fits perfectly no lightlights the only thing is the vignette on my samyang 12mm i might remove the two extra slot
    Date published: 2016-04-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Filter Holder, Well Made This is super filter holder. Made very well. it holds 85 & 84mm filters so you can use Hitech or Colin or any other for that matter. The holder to ring mounting is secure and easy to use. To top it off it is adjustable as to the number of filter guides you can mount. Super for wide angle shots.
    Date published: 2013-10-01
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from check before you buy I bought this filter holder to use with all of my Cokin P filters. But after getting the filter holder I found out that my Cokin P 164 polarize filter would not fit into the holder.I did not want to buy a different polarizer just for that filter holder. But all my other P filters fit just fine.
    Date published: 2016-09-28
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Standard filter holder. I bought this to replace my old and trusty Cokin filter holder. The only problem I found so far is when using more than one filter, I need to seal it with gaffer tape. For that reason I now bought the new Firecrest 100mm filter holder from Formatt-hitech.
