About Hitech

The 85mm Neutral Density Master Kit from Hitech is designed for the Cokin P system. The six filters in this kit offer the possibility to achieve otherwise unachievable results. This kit includes both 1, 2 and 3 stop Solid Neutral Density and Graduated Neutral Density filters. They enable the shooter to adjust exposure without affecting color balance. An ND filter appears gray and reduces the amount of light reaching either the sensor of a digital camera or the film plane of a traditional film camera.

A Neutral Density filter is also used to create some unusual special effects such as capturing the "blur" of the rippling water of a waterfall or the swirling effect of city traffic. Since it allows the use of slower shutter speeds in bright light, it becomes possible to create these special effects that would normally not be possible to capture without the filter.

And, since it can also help to control your depth of field, it permits you to shoot at wider apertures. Ultimately, its value is in helping to prevent bright, overly washed out images shot in bright light. Solid Neutral Density filters effect the entire image where as Graduated Neutral Densities are primarily used to control the exposure between a dark foreground and bright sky. The Graduated Filters in this kit are soft edge.

Their CR39 resin is manufactured in large sheets that are oven cured. Their exclusive Absorbing Cell Technology absorbs color as opposed to other filters that are coated. Once cured, they are sliced up to create individual filters. In this way, maximum consistency is maintained from filter to filter. This becomes crucial when you wish to change filters either mid shoot or from day to day.

Hitech Features

  • Neutral Density Filters: To enable slow shutter speeds to be used, especially with high speed ISOs, to record movement in subjects such as waterfalls, clouds, or cars
  • Neutral Density Filters: To decrease depth of field by allowing wider apertures to be used, which helps separate subjects from their background
  • Neutral Density Filters: To decrease the effective ISO of high speed film (above ISO 400) and allow it to be used outdoors in bright situation
  • Neutral Density Filters: To allow cine and video cameras (which have fixed shutter speeds) to film subjects such as snow, sand or other bright scenes which could cause overexposure
  • Absorbing Cell Technology: The secret to Formatt's consistency in filter design lies in its unique "Absorbing Cell Technology" (A.C.T.); this unique process allows color correct dyes to be applied to optically pure, wafer thin absorbing cells
