Firecrest 100mm Filter Holder


Formatt Hitech already has the most extensive range of rectangular filters and holder systems, which accommodate filter sizes from as small as 67x67mm up to the super wide angle 165x200mm graduated filters.

For some time they have been researching what their customers really want and need in a holder system and have taken soundings from the many professional partners and featured artists whom we work with worldwide. We have been looking to develop a holder system which not only complements our existing modular range, but is also worthy of our prestigious FIRECREST brand.


The holder is designed for use with most standard and wide angle/zoom lenses up to approximately 16mm. For super-wide lenses the LucrOit 165mm system should be used.

Features:

  • Revolutionary new top and bottom covers to almost completely eliminate light leakage when shooting long exposure, with interchangeable end caps for use with 100x100 filters or 100x125/150mm graduated filters.
  • Built in low-profile gasket.
  • Adaptors / step rings come with the system as standard for all sizes from 67-82mm, and step rings for smaller lenses can be purchased separately (for lens threads 46mm, 52, 58 & 62mm)
  • Rotating adaptor rings in 72-77 and 77-77mm are available for additional purchase. These reduce the risk of vignette as they eliminate the need for the 72-82 or 77-82mm step rings.
  • Integrated top of the range Firecrest 82mm multicoated polariser comes as standard within the system. A unique geared mechanism allows for easy rotation whilst installed. The polariser can also be removed within its ring/adaptor for use as a screw in
  • 2 fixed filter slots which take 100mm filters
  • Extremely high quality lightweight aluminium design with extra oxidisation to reduce likelihood of scratching

The holder is designed for use with most standard and wide angle/zoom lenses up to approximately 16mm. For super-wide lenses the LucrOit 165mm system should be used.
