For the MKII, we went back to the drawing board and worked closely with an extensive team of industry leading photographers to build upon the successes of the MKI, whilst taking into account the feedback from our users in order to refine and improve upon every aspect of our holder.

Thanks for the opportunity.
I have been largely happy with the holder.
I had an issue with the 86-86 adapter ring for the cpl, where it wouldn't rotate. I contacted support and they responded quickly and sent a replacement.
I feel that the operation of these rings, both the 86-86 and 86-82 adapters is quite stiff and intermittent which takes away from what is a great product and funtionality.
The Formatt Hitech people are great to deal with. I had emailed a few questions regarding the best setup for me and all questions were answered promptly. I have not had a chance to use the holder yet, but the build quality and the ouch and filter pouches are really solid.

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.
