In hopes of bringing the goods to the WPPI expo floor, Manfrotto announced their new Lens Filter Suite that incorporates their newest lens filters paired with a new magnetic adapter and filter holder system. The newly announced lens filter system uses Manfrotto’s XUME magnetic adapters to make switching and removing filters from your lenses as easy as clipping them on or off.
The beauty of the Lens Filter Suite is in the easy setup of the Manfrotto XUME magnetic adapters and filter holders; once installed, you can easily and securely clip your desired filter and swap out on the fly without having to unscrew the adapter or filter holder. By building out a suite of compatible filters, holders, and adapters Manfrotto hopes to meet most photographer’s demands. Ultimately, the Manfrotto Lens Filter Suite should save precious time when shooting with adapters even as shooting conditions change.
Manfrotto’s Lens Filter Suite hopes to help photographers avoid the frustration of changing filters as their shooting conditions change. Thanks to the XUME magnetic adapters, photographers can simply swap out filters as subjects wander or the available light changes; helping them to avoid missing a shot or the perfect moment. Each Manfrotto lens filter offers a multi-coating element built to minimize reflection without degrading image quality. Manfrotto’s Protect filters add an additional layer of protection (no pun intended) with their anti-scratch, water-repellent, and oil-repellent coatings. Each filter includes a reusable storage case.
The Manfrotto Lens Filter System hopes to make it into the gear bag of both pros and enthusiasts alike by combining the system’s simplicity with an array of sizes and prices that should fit any photographer’s style and budget. The Manfrotto XUME Filter Holders and Manfrotto XUME Lens Adapters are available in eight sizes: 49mm, 52mm, 58mm, 62mm; 67mm, 72mm, 77mm and 82mm. The Manfrotto XUME CAP is available only for the 77mm size. Manfrotto Filters range in price from $19.99 to $134.99 and Manfrotto Xume Adapters range in price from $10.99 to $34.99.
