FORMATT FILTERS

Formatte Filters

Formatte Filters
The secret to Formatt’s consistency in filter design lie in our unique “Absorbing Cell technology” (A.C.T).
This unique process allows our colour correct dyes to be applied to our optically pure wafer thin absorbing cell and offers a controllability which ensures the smoothest of grad lines and consistent colour across the whole of the filter surface.
This process is revolutionary compared with conventional filter dying techniques by eliminating the need to directly coat the glass surface itself. Glass, due to its very nature, is non-porous and can often result in uneven grad lines or smeared inconsistent colours.
The repeatable performance gained through A.C.T ensures that at any time you have to swap like for like filters mid shoot you can do so with confidence with no discernible differences in colour or density.

Filter protection - a simple but effective idea
If something is beautiful but delicate, costing hundreds of pounds it stands to reason that its worth protecting.
Precision crafted optical glass filters, surely are no different.
Every Formatt glass filter is finished with a unique edge frame offering maximum protection against edge chipping, surface scratches and enables easy handling and cleaning.
With the Filter description on top of the frame it also makes identification of the filter much easier especially when filters are stored in cases on location.

Used In numerous applications, Formatt ND filters help extend the exposure parameters and can be used in both colour and black & white videography.

Densities: 0.3, 0.6, 0.9,1.2

Star Effect STAR EFFECT FILTERS

Star effects are created from direct highlights which are captured on engraved lines cut into the filter.
Star Filters are most often described by the
amount of points they possess. For example, a 4 point star would give a symmetrical north-south, east-west.

Formatt Star Effects Filters are available as 2, 4,6 & 6 point.
The demonstration image shows an 6 point star effects filter in combination with a Day For Night filter.

Supermist SUPERMIST FILTERS

Densities: 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Clear Supermist amplifies highlights but slightly reduces contrast. Black Supermist reduces highlights without affecting contrast.
