Formatt Hitech 6.5 x 6.5" Low Contrast 1 Filter

The 6.5 x 6.5" Low Contrast 1 Filter from Hitech provides a noticeable reduction in contrast across the image. Lower contrast results in greater shadow detail when properly exposed. This filter is ideal for use during midday and other high contrast lighting situations when it is difficult to control both overexposed highlights and underexposed shadows. There is a 1 stop density that aids in providing less contrast across the scene by allowing the use of longer, more controlled exposures.

The Grade 1 Low Contrast Filter will help minimizes your highlight while opening up your shadows. This is achieved by the filter "stealing" light from the highlights and adding it to your shadows. This effect will help the overall lighting ratio of the shot by evening out the highlights and shadow areas.

The Hitech filter system is made by Formatt - an English company that is renowned for its high manufacturing standards and consistency of quality. 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.

Absorbing Cell Technology

  • The secret to Hitech'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 and offers a controllability that ensures the smoothest grad lines and consistent color across the whole filter surface
  • Hitech filters are manufactured to exacting standards and can be counted on to be consistent filter to filter which means you can change filters mid shot or from day-to-day and still maintain the same exposure
  • Hitech filters are made by Formatt, a company with three generations of professional filter-making experience produces every filter to the highest technical standards. The finest materials, together with state of-the-art production technology have resulted in a standard of optical excellence unmatched anywhere else
