Formatt-Hitech has teamed up with pro pho­tog­ra­pher Colby Brown to cre­ate this kit of es­sen­tial land­scape fil­ters. A soft grad­u­ated ND4 fil­ter keeps bright skies in check, while if you’re shoot­ing a very low sun­set, the ND4 re­verse grad fea­tures a flipped grad­u­a­tion to block most light across a bright hori­zon. Both de­liver great re­sults with no cast, and the 100mm cir­cu­lar po­lariser also per­forms flaw­lessly.

Fi­nally there’s the ProS­top IRND 6, which re­duces light trans­fer by six stops. It’s mar­keted as the world’s most neu­tral ND thanks to its abil­ity to fil­ter vis­i­ble and in­fra-red light; how­ever our test ex­am­ple in­tro­duced an ob­vi­ous blue colour shift. A re­place­ment was far bet­ter, though, hope­fully in­di­cat­ing an iso­lated is­sue with an oth­er­wise ex­cel­lent kit.
