When light from the sun bounces off a flat non metallic surface, such as glass or water, it becomes polarised with all of the reflected light waves vibrating in the same plane. This reflected glare can be removed by the polarising filter. The SW150 System features its own circular polarising filter. If used alone, the polariser can be placed into the filter holder and the holder rotated until the desired effect is achieved. If used with a grad filter, the grad should be positioned first, then the polariser added – you will have no rotation possible without turning the grad, but will have a choice of two axis of polarisation, achievable by turning the filter through 90 degrees.
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.
Formatt Hitech 100mm Neutral Density Grad.Neutral density (or ND) filters produce a grey neutral tone and are used in photography to reduce light, enabling more control over exposure and depth of field .
