Coral Filters are treated as a separate category as they can be considered as both Colour Correction and Colour Effects Filters. Formatt Coral Filters are used to warm cool lighting situations such as overcast days. Formatt Corals's are available in densities 1/8 to 5 and so are ideal for maintaining a consistent colour balance throughout a whole day of shooting or to create a sunset or dawn effect at any time of the day. Colour Graduated filters are one of the most widely used category's of filter. They enhance reality, adding a touch of subtlety or drama to the image. Some of the most popular applications include:
  • Adding colour excitement to a drab sky.
  • Changing the specific colour in a scene to create a desired special effect.
  • Enhancing the existing colour or creating subtle colour drama.
  • Creating more balanced exposure in uneven lighting conditions.

Formatt Grads are available in four types:
  • Soft Edge - Half clear, half coloured with a smooth transition to full density. Generally used with medium to wide angle lenses.
  • Hard Edge - Half clear, half coloured with a definite less subtle transition. For use with long focal length lenses.
  • Razor Edge - As hard edge but with a solid transition line for shooting corners of buildings, knife-edge horizons or when a very bold transition is required.
  • Attenuator / Blender - The grad line is right at one edge of the filter so the colour change runs from top to bottom. Perfect for irregular objects and skylines.

These unique filters offer a degree of image control that in the past has required 2, 3, or even more stacked filters. A Blue #2 for example, has a graduated blue hue on one end and graduated ND on the other, letting you simultaneously control the foreground and enhance a sky.
