Firecrest Superslim Stackable Long Exposure Kit

from 119.00

Neutral density filters are colorless filters that remove light evenly across all spectrums. Neutral density filters are used to lengthen exposure time, or allow the shooter to use a larger aperture. Common uses are:

  • Creating shallow depth of field during daytime

  • Making water appear misty and ethereal

  • Removing people from busy areas

  • Transforming clouds and skies

  • Adjust exposure on cinema cameras because shutter duration is fixed

The Firecrest ND Long Exposure kit comprises of the following densities:

ND0.3 (1 stop)

ND1.5 (5 stops)

ND2.1 (7 stops)

ND2.7 (9 Stops)

INTRODUCTION TO NEUTRAL DENSITY FILTERS

Neutral Density (ND) filters are the essential filters for digital photography and cinematography. ND filters reduce the amount of light entering the camera and allow the photographer to create the following effects:

  • Ethereal waterfalls and streams

  • Flat water effect in oceans and lakes

  • Streaky clouds

  • Motion blur in sports

  • Long exposures to remove people from public areas

  • Shallow depth of field using fast lenses wide-open

  • Adjusting aperture for cinematography 


3-4 stop ND filters allow street photographers to shoot their fast lenses “wide-open” even during the middle of the day.

4-6 stop ND filters create a moderate lengthening of exposure time to create a misty effect in moving water. Usually around 1 second.

6-10 stop ND filters create 2-30 second exposures that are perfect for waterfalls, streams, and seashores.

13 stop ND filters are used to create ethereal effects in water and clouds, with exposure times around 2 minutes in duration, especially in areas where clouds are moving quickly (such as coastal cities).

16 stop ND filters are used to create the long exposure effects - such as streaky clouds and flat water - that have been popularized by photographers such as Joel Tjintjelaar. 16 stop filters allow the photographer to make 5-8 minute exposures, even during mid-day lighting conditions.

Firecrest ND is a quantum leap improvement over all previous generation ND and IRND products and represents the technological state of the art in scientific light modification. These glass filters are hyper-neutral across the visible light spectrum and also remove more IR contamination than any other filter - making them IRND filters. 

Firecrest is a radical departure in how ND filters are manufactured. Previous generation NDs were made by dying resin. Firecrest is not a dying process, it is a rare earth metal coating process that is applied directly to the glass through an electrolytic process.

On rectangular filters, the Firecrest coating is sandwiched between the finest Schott Superwite optical glass, increasing scratch resistance and longevity. Firecrest reduces all spectrums of light (UV, visible, near infrared and infrared) almost perfectly evenly.
