Firecrest Ultra Colby Brown Signature Edition Landscape Kit


Firecrest Ultra are the next generation in Neutral Density filtration for photographers.

Firecrest remain (December 2017) the only professional grade filter that is bonded to protect the coating in the centre of the filter giving the filter enhanced durability over coated products and protecting your investment. 

With Firecrest Ultra we have taken this process one step further and we now "lap and polish" the filters, a process previously only carried out on our cinema grade filters. So as well as the superb neutrality and durability that Firecrest deliver, the filters now benefit from enhanced clarity and sharpness and are the most optically flat photographic ND filters in the world, regardless of focal length. 

Firecrest Ultra Soft Edge Graduated filters are available in 100x100mm and densities from 1 to 5 stops.

For the discerning photographer Firecrest Ultra aren't the best choice. 

They're the ONLY choice.

Landscape Filter Kit

The emphasis of the Landscape Filter kit is using graduated ND filters to enhance the skies in your outdoor photography. The kit also includes a 6 stop ND for creating misty and ethereal effects in waterfall, stream, and seascape shots.


Firecrest ND

6 stop ND filter

Neutral Density (or ND) filters produce a grey neutral effect and are used to reduce light in photography, enabling control over exposure and depth of field without affecting color or contrast. ND's are made in different densities according to the level of light reduction from 1 stop to 10 stops (even 13 and 16 stops) of light.

Colby has chosen the 6 stop ND because it is a versatile middle density perfect for creating misty and ethereal effects in water.

Firecrest ND Soft Edge Grad

The versatile 2 stop ND grad

Soft Edge graduated filters transition across the filter toward the center, and although there is a horizon line, it is subtle. This allows for horizon transitions to be more easily hidden in a scene, especially with an undulating horizon line such as mountains, buildings or trees. 

Firecrest Ultra ND Reverse Grad

A specialty 2 stop ND for sunrise and sunset

The reverse grad is a vital tool if you are looking to take sunrise or sunset shots. This is because the ND part of the grad is upside down, with the darker part at the middle of the filter and the lighter part at the top. This ensures the maximum light reduction when the sun is at or near the horizon.

Firecrest SuperSlim Polariser

Included in the Premier Kit

The effect that polarisers have on photography is almost magical. Bright glaring reflections on water magically disappear. Foliage becomes deep and rich. Haze evaporates from the sky leaving clouds silhouetted against dramatic blue skies. Formatt-Hitech’s Firecrest SuperSlim polarisers are of the finest available. The circular polarisation pattern means that they work seamlessly with any digital sensor (linear polarisers from any manufacturer should be avoided when using CMOS sensors).
