Ken Kaminesky

Ken Kaminesky's iconic photography has featured in major publications including the New York Times, Condé Nast Traveler, and twice on the front cover of National Geographic magazine. As a commercial travel photographer and visual storyteller, he circles the globe in search of the world's most thrilling sights and stunning locations.

Master Filter Kit, Ken Kaminesky Signature Edition

Ken has reimagined the Master Kit, removing the 1, 2 & 3 stop ND filters and replacing them with the 3, 6 & 10 stop NDs that are essential to digital photographers. Add to this the 0.6 and 0.9 soft edge ND grads, circular polarizer, plus a booklet and filter pouches/clamshells and you’ve got the ultimate master filter kit for travel, landscape, fine art and architectural photography.

Firecrest Filters

Firecrest is a multicoating applied to glass and is far-and-away the most technologically advanced filter manufacturing process on the market. Firecrest filters remove dyed resin from the manufacturing process. The Firecrest multicoating is a rare earth metal coating applied to the glass through an electrolytic process. Most importantly, Firecrest technology gives our chief scientist unprecedented control over modifying specific frequencies of the light spectrum. The result is hyper-neutral NDs, with tailored reductions of ultraviolet, visible spectrum light, near-infrared and infrared.

ND Filters

Neutral Density (or ND) filters produce a grey neutral effect and are used to reduce light in photography, enabling control over exposure time and depth of field without affecting color or contrast. The three ND filters in this kit were chosen because they provide a wide variety of creative options for the photographer. The 3 and 6 stop NDs provide a moderate long exposure effect. But, combined with the 10 stop ND you can create true long-exposure images up to 8 minutes. The 3-6-10 combination is extremely popular for its versatility.

ND Grads

2 and 3 Stops Soft Edge Grad in Firecrest Glass

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. The 2 and 3 stop soft edge ND filters included in this kit are our most popular and most versatile ND grad filters.

Firecrest Polariser

Firecrest SuperSlim Polariser

Firecrest SuperSlim 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 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 Polarisers have the added benefit of a reflection reducing coating. This is especially important when using polarisers as often the polariser is employed to remove reflections that are bearing down directly on the barrel of the lens. For this reason, Formatt-Hitech offers our revolutionary Firecrest anti-reflective coating for our polarising filters. Firecrest coating protects against UV contamination, plus it reduces reflections, increases scratch resistance, and increases contrast and acuity.
