A quick post regarding a parcel I received today. Those very nice people at Formatt Hitech have sent me the new version of their 10 stop filter. As you can see from the image the filter now has a gasket. The filter also has a different CR39 optical resin dye from the previous 10 stop filter which is claimed to stop the IR colour casts of the previous 10 stop filter.
The filter is available now in both 85mm and 100mm sizes. The 100mm filter retails for £60+vat, the 85mm filter retails for £40+vat. To cater for Lee users that cant get a hold of the ‘Big Stopper’, this filter will be available in a version to fit the Lee holder with a 1.5mm gasket. For Hitech holder users, this filter comes with a 3mm gasket.
As well as being available in 10 stops, Formatt plan to make this filter in 6,7,8 and 9 stop versions.
A full comparison review between this new filter and the ‘Big Stopper’ will follow in the next couple of weeks. The original Hitech 10 stop vs Lee Big Stopper review is here.
Well it took a bit longer than planned but at last the review of the new Hitech Pro Stop filter is finished.
