Over the last year, I’ve had the pleasure of being able to review several high-end filters from various manufacturers. I’ve been able to build a little catalog of test images which I tend to go back to when testing new filters. This allows me to review filters relative to other systems I’ve used and I’m very pleased and a little surprised to say that Formatt-Hitech are the sharpest filters I have used so far.
In my latest video I test and review the Firecrest Ultra ND filters and aside from a few minor issues, I highly recommend them. My absolute favourite thing about this systems is the usability. Personally I consider usability to be a major factor when it comes to evaluating any product or system. It really does make a difference when your actually out working and photographing. The Formatt-Hitech filters are such a joy to use due to their super simple design and compact nature. The pouches and carry cases are compact enough in deign to comfortably carry in most messenger bags and set-up time is minimal. When it comes to the actual performance of the filters, I have to say I was very impressed. Although they do have a noticeable colour shift, the way it retains detail is simply incredible. These are without a doubt the sharpest filters I have ever used and that’s really saying something, especially when you consider the other systems I’ve reviewed.
