Manfrotto’s newest Gear… From Newbie to Pro

Blunty’s adventures in Melbourne at “The Digital show” brought him to the Manfrotto stand where they made a “world premiere” announcement for a brand new product line…

A new range of Lens filters, Japanese made, and in a variety to take care of the newbies all the way to working profesionals

Manfrotto filters will be available in up to 13 sizes – from 37mm to 82mm. The three ranges are:

PROFESSIONAL – The ultra-thin Professional filter range’s multi-coated glass is anti-static, water repellent, scratch/oil resistant and anti-reflective. The filters also feature black-rimmed glass and multiple light-blocking ridges that minimise light refraction.

– Protector filters’ ultra clear and 12 layered multi-coated glass allows for a high light transmission rate of 99.3 percent. Designed to provide ultimate protection for camera lenses from accidental scratches and impact.

– Circular-polarising (Circ-Pol) filters with a high light-transmission polariser of 90 percent and 12 layers of coating help colour rendition and shadow intensity by enhancing contrast levels.

ADVANCED – The ultra-thin Advanced range’s multi-coated glass is water repellent, scratch/oil resistant and anti-reflective. The filters also feature black-rimmed glass to minimise light refraction.

– UV filters minimise excessive haziness caused by UV light. With light transmission levels of 98.8 percent and a 12-layer anti-reflection coating, these filters also function as a durable lens protector.

– Circular-polarising (Circ-Pol) filters with 12 layers of coating provide superior colour and contrast enhancement for superb image rendition.

OUTDOOR – The super-thin Outdoor multi-coated glass filters are water repellent and anti-reflective coatings (on UV filters only).
