Polarisers are essential filters for increasing the image quality of your outdoor photographs because they remove atmospheric haze, increasing contrast between clouds and sky. Polarisers also remove unwanted reflections from water, windshields, windows, and foliage. The anti-reflective properties of Firecrest multicoating means your images will have the highest contrast and fidelity. Note: If you have a autofocus camera or a digital camera with a CMOS chip, you need a circular polariser, rather than a linear. “Circular” and “Linear” refer to the polarisation of the light, not the shape of the filter. (i.e. we make square circular polarisers)
Polarisers remove haze from sky and reflections from water, glass and foliage.

Formatt Hitech Firecrest circular polarisers are available in standard (uncoated) and with Firecrest Multicoating. Both are available in two versions of slim circular screw-in, SuperSlim and UltraSlim. The SuperSlim is threaded, stackable and only 7.5mm thin. The UltraSlim rings are 4.5mm thin. UltraSlim rings are not stackable and don’t have threading for lens caps, however they are the thinnest circular screw-in filters in the world.
