    Formatt Hitech Firecrest Landscape Filter Kit by Colby Brown with 100mm MKII HolderThe Firecrest MKII holder builds upon the success of our original Firecrest holder and further cement Formatt Hitech’s position as an innovator in our field.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.A bigger polariser giving you a wider viewWith recent developments in optical design, it has become more common for lenses to have larger threads. To accommodate these advancements we have expanded our CPL (circular polarising filter) to 86mm. This means wider compatibility and better performance on a range of new wide-angle lenses. It also makes it compatible with a range of cinema lenses such as the Tokina 11-20MM T2.9.The polariser can be fitted into either included rotating ring adapter and becomes an integral part of the holder. The polariser is operated with an easy to use thumbscrew. This allows you to set your grads and then dial in the exact polarising effect you want. Due to its free movement, this means you can leave the polarising filter (CPL) attached at all times and simply turn off the effect if not wanted. The construction of the filter also means you can use the CPL filter as an independent filter without the need for the holder.More step rings more flexibility.For improved performance on an even wider range of lenses, the holder now ships with two rotating adapters as standard. These adapters allow the lens to sit closer to the filters helping with wide-angle photography. The kit includes an 86mm - 86mm rotating adapter and a 86mm - 82mm adapter. For best performance on 77mm and smaller wide-angle lenses, it is recommended to use the included step rings from the 86-86mm rotating adapter.The holder frameWe have made many subtle changes to improve the ergonomics of the holder, making it easy to hold and use even when wearing gloves in cold weather.The frame itself is made from aircraft-grade aluminium and includes scratch-resistant ABS slots and an integrated light leak gasket. The addition of a gasket on the frame removes the need to add gasketsThe holder now comes with two sets of covers, one vented for use with grad filters and a completely closed one for improved performance on long and extremely long exposure photography. The light guards add an extra level of utility for photographers who work in changeable environments. The holder also functions like any other holder without the guards when light leaks or reflection is of lower importance.In the spirit of flexibility, all holders ship with extra slots that can be used as spares or with the included longer screws to make it a three-slot holder, making room for an incredible four filters with the included 86mm rear mount circular polariser attached.Firecrest Landscape Kit by Colby BrownThis Filter kit contains three essential filters, hand-selected by world-renowned photographer Colby Brown, and should be considered a “must have” filter kit for any serious landscape, travel, or outdoor photographer.This kit includes the following items:Firecrest 100mm ND 1.8Firecrest 100x150mm ND Soft Edge Grad 0.6Firecrest 100x150mm ND Reverse Grad 0.6(NEW) Firecrest 100mm MKII Filter Kit100mm Filter HolderSoft Touch Outer Case86-86mm Rotating Adaptor Ring86-82mm Rotating Adaptor RIng72-86mm Step Ring77-86mm Step RingFirecrest 86mm Ultraslim polariserFilter pouchesExclusive Colby Brown booklet

    Formatt Hitech Firecrest Ultra Colby Brown Signature Edition 100mm Premier Landscape Kit + 100mm Holder Kit This Filter kit contains three essential filters, hand-selected by world-renowned photographer Colby Brown, and should be considered a “must have” filter kit for any serious landscape, travel, or outdoor photographer. Colby Brown Colby Brown is an internationally renowned photographer, photo educator and author from Denver, Colorado. Specializing in landscape, travel and humanitarian photography, his portfolio spans the four corners of the globe. In 2011 Colby founded “The Giving Lens”, an organization that combines his prodigious talent as a photographer with humanitarian work on various causes such as clean drinking water, education, women’s rights and species preservation. Colby’s social media following numbers in the millions. Landscape Filter Kit The emphasis of the Landscape Filter kit is using graduated ND filters to enhance the skies in your outdoor photography. The kit also includes a 6 stop ND for creating misty and ethereal effects in waterfall, stream, and seascape shots. The kit is available in 100mm and includes holder system and wide angle lens adapter ring, making it a turnkey filter kit solution. Filter only kits are also available. A Premium Edition is available with a Firecrest Superslim 105mm Circular polariser and adapter ring. This kit includes the filter pouches and exclusive Colby Brown booklet. Firecrest ND 6 stop ND filter © COLBY BROWN Neutral Density (or ND) filters produce a grey neutral effect and are used to reduce light in photography, enabling control over exposure and depth of field without affecting color or contrast. ND's are made in different densities according to the level of light reduction from 1 stop to 10 stops (even 13 and 16 stops) of light. Colby has chosen the 6 stop ND because it is a versatile middle density perfect for creating misty and ethereal effects in water. Firecrest ND Soft Edge Grad The versatile 2 stop ND grad Soft Edge graduated filters transition across the filter toward the center, and although there is a horizon line, it is subtle. This allows for horizon transitions to be more easily hidden in a scene, especially with an undulating horizon line such as mountains, buildings or trees.  © COLBY BROWN Firecrest 0.6 ND Reverse Grad A specialty 2 stop ND for sunrise and sunset © COLBY BROWN The reverse grad is a vital tool if you are looking to take sunrise or sunset shots. This is because the ND part of the grad is upside down, with the darker part at the middle of the filter and the lighter part at the top. This ensures the maximum light reduction when the sun is at or near the horizon. Firecrest UltraSlim Polariser The effect that polarisers have on photography is almost magical. Bright glaring reflections on water magically disappear. Foliage becomes deep and rich. Haze evaporates from the sky leaving clouds silhouetted against dramatic blue skies. Formatt-Hitech’s Firecrest UltraSlim polarisers are of the finest available. The circular polarisation pattern means that they work seamlessly with any digital sensor (linear polarisers from any manufacturer should be avoided when using CMOS sensors).

    Firecrest Ultra are the next generation in Neutral Density filtration for photographers. Firecrest remain the only professional grade filter that is bonded to protect the coating in the centre of the filter giving the filter enhanced durability over coated products and protecting your investment. With Firecrest Ultra we have taken this process one step further and we now "lap and polish" the filters, a process previously only carried out on our cinema grade filters. So as well as the superb neutrality and durability that Firecrest deliver, the filters now benefit from enhanced clarity and sharpness and are the most optically flat photographic ND filters in the world, regardless of focal length. Firecrest Ultra Soft Edge Graduated filters are available in 100x150mm and densities from 1 to 5 stops. For the discerning photographer Firecrest Ultra aren't the best choice. They're the ONLY choice. Soft Edge graduated filters transition gradually in density from the top of the filter toward the center, and although there is a horizon line, it is subtle. This allows for horizon transitions to be more easily hidden in a scene, especially with an undulating horizon line such as mountains, buildings or trees. Typically graduated filters are used to enhance the sky by balancing the luminosity of the sky to the luminosity of the terrain. Firecrest ND grads are currently only available in soft edge grads, as they are the most versatile. Firecrest ND is a quantum leap improvement over all previous generation ND and IRND products and represents the technological state of the art in scientific light modification. These glass filters are hyper-neutral across the visible light spectrum and also remove more IR contamination than any other filter - making them IRND filters. Firecrest is a radical departure in how ND filters are manufactured. Previous generation NDs were made by dying resin. Firecrest is not a dying process, it is a rare earth metal coating process that is applied directly to the glass through an electrolytic process. On rectangular filters, the Firecrest coating is sandwiched between the finest Schott Superwite optical glass, increasing scratch resistance and longevity. Firecrest reduces all spectrums of light (UV, visible, near infrared and infrared) almost perfectly evenly. Firecrest ND Soft Edge GradAnother industry first with Firecrest is the development of IRND grads. All Firecrest ND filters, including grads, block infrared radiation, technically making them IRND grads. Legacy graduated ND filters are manufactured from the traditional ND formulations originally developed for use with film and do not reduce infrared. Firecrest grads use the same Firecrest technology as their solid ND brothers. The result is a perfectly neutral graduated ND filter that pairs and stacks perfectly with even the highest densities of ND filter, and especially with other IRND filters.

    Designed to balance the overall exposure within a high-contrast scene, the 100 x 150mm Soft Edge Graduated Neutral Density 0.6 Filter from Formatt-Hitech is ideal for situations involving both bright and dark areas, such as an open sky and shadowed foreground. Half of the filter has 0.6 neutral density and the other half is clear, with a soft-edged transition between the two that is ideally suited for use with medium and wide-angle lenses or when there is an uneven, undulating horizon. By reducing the exposure in selective areas, you are able to balance the overall exposure of the scene in order to gain detail in both bright and dark areas. This filter is constructed from lightweight, durable optical resin, which is also designed to maintain image clarity and not affect the overall colour balance of the scene. It measures 3.9 x 5.9" / 100 x 150 mm, is 1.5mm thick, and is suitable for use in 100mm filter holders.
