The Formatt 4 x 4″ HD Full Frame Contrast 1 Filter is a valuable tool to have when you are shooting under very bright light i.e. mid-day, beach, etc. With the explosion of HD technology, using this filter will help when shooting on location (or studio) when a more balanced tone to the image is desired.
This filter distributes the ambient light all over the image area yielding a more even appearance. Shadows will be opened revealing more detail. However, the real benefit is that the highlights will not display any flair or halation.
- Reduces contrast by evening out the ambient light in the frame
- Excellent when shooting under very bright light
- Using this filter will allow more detail to be revealed – opens shadows
