Description

Remove Light Evenly

Firecrest Ultra Neutral Density filters are colorless and remove light evenly across all spectrums. With ND filters, you can create shallow depth of field during daytime, make water appear misty and ethereal, remove people from busy areas, transform clouds and skies, and adjust exposure on cinema cameras since shutter duration is fixed.

Professional Grade Filters

With Firecrest, you can be sure to get nothing less than the top of the line ND Camera Filters. Firecrest was the first brand to use carbon neutral coatings, creating a neutrality that has never been seen before! We bonded the coating in the center of two pieces of optical grade polished glass, shielding the filter from wear and tear, as well as giving it more strength than a single piece of glass.

Unique Lap & Polish Technique

Our signature Lap & Polish technique, was first reserved only for our cinema-grade filters, but is now used for our Firecrest Ultra Filters as well! This means your Firecrest Ultra Filters benefit from enhanced clarity and sharpness, making it one of the most optically flat filters in the world.

Different Densities and Sizes

Our Firecrest Ultra Range is available in a wide range of circular threaded filters, and 100x100mm square for use in our Firecrest Filter Holder system. as well as a wide range of popular densities depending on the exposure you want, from 1 to 10 stops, 13 and 16 stops, and 18 to 24 stops. 

Firecrest at the Forefront of Innovation
Firecrest created a new range of neutral filters that no other brand has been able to create! We bonded the filter coating in the center of two pieces of optical grade polished glass, shielding your filter from wear and tear, as well as giving it more strength than a single piece of glass.

A really good set of IRND filters and filter holder

I purchased the Firecrest 100mm Holder Kit MKII and several 100x100mm Infrared controlled Natural Density filters with an additional adapter ring to meet my needs and a 6-filter pouch that comes in handy keep the filters safe. This was an international order and the team at Formatt Hitech USA was immensely helpful to get my selected items and ship them out. It seems that the pandemic had a great positive impact on couriers and the delivery was excellent and ahead of ETA.

The MKII kit comes with an excellent polarizer. I experimented sufficiently with the IRND filters to say that they are of a very good quality. I am not a photography pro and only have a few ND filters to compare the Firecrest IRND filters hence my verdict is more subjective than metrological.

Although there are good budget filters to be had and I am a fan of Hoya filters I learned that good filters come attached with a higher price tag. The Formatt Hightech IRND filters perform extremely well and I am aesthetically pleased with the images. The polarizer is excellent and in my environment of high natural light luminescence the are performing admirably.

The Firecrest 100mm Holder Kit MKII took a few moments to get used (there are some online videos as well on mounting etc.). It really is easy to mount and secure but I made sure with the camera a ground level that it was mounted securely before it went up on the tripod. I am more comfortable now to fit it to a tripod mounted camera after learning the ropes of mounting it.

The new holder has not let in any stray light around the edges thanks to the end caps (that's a great innovative touch and gets rid of the scarf or towel wrap I used before). After a snappy with the polarizer mounted, I check the exposure times for a given aperture and use one of the free ND calculator phone apps that are out there. It usually works out fine if lighting conditions do not change too much and once bulb settings and bulb exposure times are set Bob's your uncle.

Any filter holder system will be an investment and try before you buy is not often available. I can happily say that the Firecrest 100mm Holder Kit MKII and IRND filters are definitely great value for money.

FORMATT HITECH AMBASSADORS

Although I enjoy all aspects of photography my real passion lies in long-exposures of landscapes, seascapes, and cityscapes. I came across the brand Formatt-Hitech after meeting one of their featured artists on a long-exposure workshop. When I saw the results of how you can control elements of nature with time, I realized I was able to bring out my love for art within the photos I took.

In recent years I've been thrilled to have won national competitions and to have had work featured in both print and broadcast media. The award which means the most to me was winning the 70th Anniversary "Moments in Time" competition held by the Campaign for National Parks. Getting involved with CNP has led to some great opportunities, including being accepted into the Formatt Hitech Ambassador program.

Exploring the great outdoors really helps me to unwind from day to day pressures and balance the mind. I often become overwhelmed by the scenes in front of me and struggle with appropriate composition but since falling in love with long exposure techniques I can slow things down and sometimes turn a mediocre shot into something special.
