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.

Neutral density (or ND) filters produce a grey neutral tone and are used in photography to reduce light reaching the digital sensor. Graduated filters feature the ND effect on half of the filter and are optically clear on the other half of the filter with a gradual transition between the two sections. Graduated ND filters balance the bright sky to the darker terrain below and are essential tools in landscape and outdoor photography. Graduated NDs are available in a variety of types:
