On a different note, Formatt-Hitech has finally released the much waited for Joel Tjintjelaar kits with Firecrest Filters. To be complete, they actually released two kits for each size (screw in filters of different diameters, or square 100x100mm or 165x165mm): Kit I contains 3 filters, ND3, ND6 and ND10; Kit II contains ND10, ND13 and ND16.

For square filters you can also choose between kits with or without holders.

JT FirecretOn a personnal note, I consider the Firecrest filters as the best and most neutral filters available. The review is coming up soon, but I can already recommend you to get them, no questions asked. These are the exact same filters that I use during my work.

I would also remind you that the Firecrest line includes grad and polarizing filters as well.
