Review: Hitech Formatt 10 Stop ND Filter :: JUNK

That's right, might as well through it in the bin or avoid it totally. I bought this 10 stop filter from B&H after reading reviews on the net.

Since i bought it at B&H i figured this would've been the latest version of the filter, as the original version had the same problem im having now.

I would've been ok with results like:

Yes, it fits the Cokin P filter holder (for those of you asking) but with results like this.. think twice;
  

Probably the only decent shot i have during "daylight". 

Bottomline: DO NOT BUY:

Jokes
I remember picking it up from customs, they took it out the package & wanted to know how much they should charge.. doesnt weigh alot, looks like a piece of plastic..... and so they looked at me & asked me:

Is it worth it?
At basically USD$100.. month's later after endless failed results, the answer is "NO" with a smile.


I think im gonna go to my local hardware store and see if i can get welding glass instead, doubt the results could be any worse.
