Formatt Hitech Firecrest filter holder Vignetting

Vignetting on the Firecrest 100mm Filter holder from Formatt Hitech.

 

 

 

 

I have a new up date to this blog post here.

 

 

 

So if this is showing up for you it's not a problem it's just showing up because you are using an Ultra wide-angle lens and the filter holder is not close enough to your lens.

 

Like for example, my Nikkor 16-35mm F4 lens showed the below vignetting before I got a 77mm rotating ring adaptor.

The problem showed up at its worst when the lens was focused on a very close subject. So I made the effect as bad as I possibly could on all the shots below. 

 

The below shot is with exactly the same original setup but with lens correction applied in Lightroom.

 

Now with the new 77mmm rotating ring attached. See the second shot below.

The same shot below with lens profile correction applied in lightroom and the vignetting is nearly completely gone. 

On the shot above you can still see a tiny bit of vignetting up in the top corners but you will never be focusing this closely in a normal photograph. Setting up your focus as normal for a standard landscape image and the vignetting is completely gone.

 

You can see the difference in the rotating rings below.

New setup on the Left and old setup on the right.

The new rotating ring is a lot slimmer as there is no adaptor ring needed and it brings the holder closer to the lens solving the problem.
