Formatt-Hitech Elia Locardi Signature Edition 85mm Travel Kit - 58mm Lens Thread


Introducing the Travel Filter Kit, Elia Locardi Signature Edition. This kit contains some of the most useful filters for dramatically enhancing the quality of your photography while traveling. Filters included are ProStop IRND 10 and 4 stops and a ND Soft Edge Grad 0.9. The two ND filters allow for long exposure of crowded cities, plus a graduated ND for taming the bright sky. ProStop IRND filters are resin ND filters that also block the infrared contamination that causes digital artifacts, meaning that your RAW images are more suitable for the heavy post production required in creating fine art images.

About the Travel Filter Kit


Elia has chosen the three most popular filters used by photographers to create a kit ideal for travel photography. The two ND filters allow for long exposure of crowded cities while the graduated ND tames the bright sky. Its a simple yet versatile collection that allows you to create many beautiful in-camera effects. The kit is available with glass or resin filters. The glass kit includes Firecrest ND 10 and 4 stops with a Firecrest ND Soft Edge Grad 0.9. The resin kit includes ProStop 10 and 4 stops and a Soft Edge ND Grad 0.9.


Kits include 3 filters, pouches, the travel photography booklet and a holder system. Kits are available including the threaded adapter ring of your choice.


Resin Filters


Formatt-Hitechs resin filters are ultra flat, have excellent contrast and are completely transparent to the visible light spectrum. Formatt-Hitechs resin has the highest scratch resistance of any non-glass optical material and its resistant to most solvents, chemicals, aging and material fatigue. Because of the ruggedness, light weight and portability, resin filters are a great choice for photographers and HDSLR filmakers. Resin filters are dyed using our exclusive Absorbing Cell Technology process.
