Formatt Hitech launched the Firecrest Cine Superslim IRND filters, bringing the lightest and thinnest 4x5.65" cinema filters on the market. These revolutionary products could be used in a custom frame with existing ARRILMB standard Matte Boxes and by themselves in clip Matte Boxes such as the Bright Tangerine Misfit Kick or even the Small Rig compact Matte Box, a photographic filter holder.
The product quickly became the go-to filter for rental houses and individuals and became Formatt Hitech’s fastest-selling new product.
Following this success, Formatt Hitech has introduced a range of industry favourite Supermist Filters and added more creative options for filmmakers. In addition, the thin size means that a diffusion filter and an IRND can be stacked in the same frame, saving space and removing ghosting when traditionally stacking filters.
Firecrest Cine Superslim is the most affordable system for filmmakers using format Hitech. Despite this, every filter is handcrafted in the UK using the highest quality Schott b270i optical glass and undergoes our unique bonding, lapping and polishing techniques giving extreme resolution and unrivalled protection to your filters.
The 2mm thickness saves you roughly 50% weight over a traditional 4mm filter which is ideal for use on Drone, Gimbals and other weight-restricted applications.

A bigger polariser giving you a wider view
With recent developments in optical design, it has become more common for lenses to have larger threads. To accommodate these advancements we have expanded our CPL (circular polarising filter) to 86mm. This means wider compatibility and better performance on a range of new wide-angle lenses. It also makes it compatible with a range of cinema lenses such as the Tokina 11-20MM T2.9.
The polariser can be fitted into either included rotating ring adapter, and becomes an integral part of the holder. The polariser is operated with an easy to use thumbscrew. This allows you to set your grads and then dial in the exact
polarising effect you want. Due to its free movement, this means you can leave the polarising filter (CPL) attached at all times and simply turn off the effect if not wanted. The construction of the filter also means you can use the CPL filter as an independent filter without the need of the holder.
More step rings, more flexibility.
For improved performance on an even wider range of lenses, the holder now ships with two rotating adapters as standard. These adapters allow the lens to sit closer to the filters helping with wide-angle photography. The kit
includes an 86mm - 86mm rotating adapter and a 86mm - 82mm adapter. For best performance on 77mm and smaller wide-angle lenses, it is recommended to use the included step rings from the 86-86mm rotating adapter.
