Compared to our ever popular HITECH 85 STARTER KIT, the ENTHUSIAST KIT has the more substantial 85 MKII metal and nylon holder. Ready fitted with a 95mm mounting ring for using a 95mm Polariser. This version has one filter slot for those using very wide lenses and who may still wish to use a polariser and avoid vignetting.
The kit includes the Hitech 85 Master Kit with 3x Neutral Density Filters and 3x Neutral Density Grad Set with a HARD EDGE.
The Neutral Density Grad is used primarily to adjust the exposure difference in landscape or scenic photography, the ND Grad filters allows exposure to be better balanced when you have a light sky and darker foreground. In use the darker neutral density section of the filter is placed over the sky whilst the clear lower section covers the foreground. Both sky and foreground can now be correctly exposed. A set of 3 filters in 0.3, 0.6, and 0.9 provide the user with enough choices for most situations. Providing 1, 2, or 3 stop exposure variation and without affecting colour balance.
This kit also includes the Neutral Density Set. Sometimes you can have too much light! Conventional methods of adjusting the exposure by stopping down or use a very high shutter speed can still be ineffective as either you have too much depth of field or the shutter speed if too high for the creative look you want. Neutral Density filters reduce the exposure by a given factor. Greater creativity can now be exploited, a very slow shutter speed to enhance the feeling of movement in rushing water. A very wide aperture to isolate a subject from the background. A set of 3 filters in 0.3, 0.6, and 0.9 provide the user with enough choices for most situations. Providing 1, 2, or 3 stop exposure variation and without affecting colour balance.
The Hitech filter system is manufactured by Formatt Filters to offer versatility and creative capabilities to stills photographers. Hitech filters are manufactured using the Queens Award winning CR39 dyed substrate. Formatt developed a method of colouring CR39 in its liquid state, thereby ensuring consistency and accuracy of colour.
These filters fit in the Hitech 85 Series or Cokin P System holder and are manufactured from the highest quality optical grade polyester resin.
