The Hitech professional quality Black & White Filters are used to reduce or eliminate atmospheric haze, make the tonal reproduction in monochrome imagery more natural and give deliberate emphasis to certain tones and objects.
Filters for use with black and white film have strong colours that block wavelengths sufficiently enough to produce shifts in grey tones.
The Hitech 85 Black & White Filter – Red 25 accentuates red picture parts set off against green or blue, eg. it will make clouds brighter against the sky.
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.

Formatt Hitech 100 x125mm Blender Grad. Blenders feature an effect transition that occurs over the entire length of the filter. Starting at the top and graduating all the way to the bottom. This allows for a graduated effect across your image without any specific horizon line.
The new Super Stopper works well in harsh midday sunlight - traditionally considered an unfavourable time to shoot. However, with this filter the softness that arises from any movement contrasts pleasingly with areas of bright light, creating an effect rarely seen before now.
