Got a full set of firecrest super slim NDs and I’ve used them on two jobs already in a week since I got them. Perfect for use on a gimbal!
Purchased two open box ND filters. Couldn’t distinguish it from New condition. Great quality and price.
Very cool effect especially for razor sharp lenses, and matches pretty closely with pro-mist in a pinch if you have to mix filters.
I've ordered several "open box" ND filters, they've all been mint - brand new quality, at a great discount. Very recommended!
I have 6 of the IRND filters in 4x5.6 in stops: 1,2,3,6 and 7 ...and they are all Formatt Hitech. I wanted to keep them all in the same brand and customer service has been great with me and I would not hesitate to buy more. P.S. I also have the round circular polarizer just haven’t shot with it yet but i expect to be happy, just like I am with the IRND filters. If I could be a Featured Artist, I would. www.garybrackin.com
Best CPL in my kit. Great clarity, neutrality.
Super soft interior, and versatile...for both 100's and 77-82mm filters.
The quality of the ND are very nice
I am relatively new at using "square" type filters in photography, but this is a well-made one. I can recommend it. It is glass, so handle with care!
The Firecrest Cinema ND filters surpass the highest tolerance for quality and performance. In fact the other types of filters purchased do as well!
Need I say more?
The 3 ND Filters I purchased were just like new! What a great deal!
Best product I have used. Impeccably neutral, no colour casts. Switching all my filters to firecrest-ultra.
Great functionality with magnetic polarizer. One of the best on the market. I am extremely happy with my purchase.
High quality and works great!
