It is necessary to select and change the most suitable filter in order to reduce reflection with PL filter, to slow shutter speed with ND filter, and to pursue photographic expression. However, people who make full use of filter work may find it more difficult to attach and remove the filter. Therefore, we will release a revolutionary new product “One-touch Detachable Filter Kit (67 mm / 72 mm / 77 mm)” that can instantly remove the filter.

Features Can be removed instantly “One-touch filter kit” is a set of special filter and lens adapter, by attaching the adapter to the lens in advance, the filter can be instantly attached and removed by the bayonet type. You can quickly remove the filter without turning around like a normal screw-in filter. There is little vignetting Because the adapter is used, vignetting may occur more than a normal filter, but the thickness of the frame is reduced as much as possible by using a system of a dedicated filter + lens adapter to suppress vignetting. Set C-PL and ND16 frequently used in landscape photos In particular, I used a set of two frequently used filters in landscape photography. C-PL controls the reflected light to enhance color contrast. The ND16 uses a dimming effect to slow down the shutter speed and prevent overexposure. The easy-to-use concentration makes the best-selling ND16 among the ND filters a set. C-PL and ND16 can be quickly attached and detached depending on the application.

Optional special filter also available A lineup of lens protectors and ND filters (ND4, ND8, ND1000) with different densities are sold separately. ※ C-PL and ND16 are also available separately. Please see below for details. Kenko Tokina Co., Ltd.
