Formatt-Hitech Improves the Filter Holder with Firecrest Kit

0Share

Filters are hard to get excited about, but Formatt-Hitech’s latest release aims to change that by giving photographers a well-designed 100mm Firecrest Holder Kit that offers some unique advantages to help them take some outstanding images. By listening to photographers, this manufacturer has added a feature-rich and durable aluminum holder to its lineup that will surely please many professionals.

The most noticeable design feature of the Firecrest holder is the use of top and bottom covers to practically eliminate light leaks. Rectangular filters can sometimes allow unwanted light in, not something you want to find out after a 30-minute exposure, but the design and extra light-blocking gasket of the Firecrest will make this something you don’t need to worry about anymore.

A huge bonus is the inclusion of a circular polarizer filter that can be integrated into the holder, something normally left as an expensive add-on to most systems. This polarizer can be used in addition to the two 100mm wide rectangular filters you can normally slide in, and it can be rotated independently of the other filters so you have complete control over the effect. Finally, another advantage of this kit is that it includes adapter rings for 82mm, 77mm, 72mm, and 67mm lenses and comes with a storage pouch to keep it all safe.
