Firecrest Ultra Cinema Neutral Density Filter

$370.82

Firecrest is a revolutionary type of ND filter from Formatt Hitech. Rather than dyed resin, Firecrest is a rare earth mineral coating used to create hyper neutral NDs. The filters are made from 4mm thick Schott Superwite glass, and the multicoating is bonded in the middle to increase scratch resistance. Firecrest Filters are neutral across all spectrums, including UV, visible, and infrared.

Firecrest Ultra IRND are world class carbon based IRND filters with hyper-neutral color balance which can be used for uniform near infrared filtration allowing your camera's color science to remain untouched. Ultra IRND are equally compatible with Arri, RED, Blackmagic Design, Canon, Panasonic, and other modern digital cinema cameras allowing the image to be captured as the manufacturer intended.

4mm Cine Firecrest Ultra IRND have the same features of the popular 4mm Cine Firecrest ND. Firecrest Cine filters were renamed in 2019 to match the Ultra photography filters which received a new lap and polish manufacturing technique. For cinema sizes, the 4mm Firecrest ND were always lapped and polished where the 2mm photography versions were not. 4mm Firecrest ND and 4mm Firecrest Ultra IRND both have identical optical performance with the engraving being the only difference.
