    Fujifilm Xpro2 Folding Thumbrest – a must have accessory by Lensmate

    May 16, 2016

    We designed the Fujifilm X-Pro2 Folding Thumbrest by Lensmate to allow easy access to all of the buttons, and to quickly get out of the way when you need to get to the top dials.

    A light push with the thumb swings the rest 40° out from the camera and a light action ball detent keeps the thumbrest in the opened or closed position.

    Screen Shot 2016-05-15 at 5.39.08 PM

    • The sculpted thumbrest relaxes your grip on the camera, reduces camera shake and allows slower shutter speeds.
    • Makes one handed operation easier and prevents unintentional button presses. Camera specific design retains access to all controls.
    • Integrated silicone insert provides both thumb grip and bumper between the rest and camera body.
    • Silicone insert in the hot shoe tab provides resistance to unintentional ejection.
    • Machined out of solid 6061 Aluminum rod, then bead blasted for texture and anodized for a tough finish. Cost $59.95.

    Purchase one of our Fujifilm Thumbrests with a Soft Release Button to get a $5 discount on the bundle. Discount only applies to soft release buttons chosen as an add-on to the thumbrest. See soft release button designs and color options here.

    Sep 27, 2015

    The Lensmate X-T10 Grip or Thumbrest provides a place for the thumb to comfortably support the camera while allowing access to all buttons, dials, and switches.

    The X-T10s flash and articulated display are also unaffected by the thumbrest. Mouse over to see camera with flash and display extended.

     

    A custom silicone insert protects the hot shoe and prevents self extraction. Another insert in the rear protects the camera and absorbs vibration while a third insert under the thumb enhances the X-T10 grip.

    When using the thumbrest, the natural relaxed position of the index finger is draped over the soft release (instead of using the finger tip). In this relaxed position, longer exposures without shake are made possible.

    Sony a6000 Folding Thumb Grip by Lensmate

    Jun 06, 2015

    A6000_thumbrest_preview03
    We think the Sony a6000 really benefits from a custom thumbrest. It has taken a lot of prototypes, and tons of design time, but we are finally able to offer a folding Thumbrest with a hinged mechanism that is both functional, as well as sophisticated in it’s aesthetics.


    We designed the Lensmate Sony a6000 thumbrest to allow easy access to all of the buttons, and to quickly get out of the way when you need to get to the top dials. A light push with the thumb swings the rest 40° out from the camera and a light action ball detent keeps the thumbrest in the opened or closed position.

    Jul 04, 2014

    Sony RX100 III filter adapter – why you need the New Version

    With the Lensmate RX100 III Quick Change Filter Adapter Kit 52mmalso fits the RX100 II / RX100, you can add two filters or a low profile polarizer and a wide hood to your RX100 III with no vignetting throughout the entire focal range.

    The Lensmate Quick Change RX100 III /RX100 II /RX100 Filter Adapter Kit 52mm cost $19.95.

    The Sony RX100 III has a larger front lens element than the RX100 II or the RX100, so we went with a larger ID receiver ring to prevent vignetting, with the added benefit of increased surface area to ensure a strong connection to the camera.

    Keeping the compactness of the camera in mind, the Lensmate Quick Change Filter Adapter 52mm is a low profile system, with the receiver itself adding only 3mm to the depth of the camera. You can mount 2 filters combined, or a low profile polarizer and wide sunhood combined with no vignetting at 24mm.

    Only the thin 3mm receiver stays on the camera, the actual filter adapter then bayonets to the receiver, making for quick filter changes in the field, requiring only a 90°twist to mount or remove a filter.

     

    Why you would want a polarizer.

    A polarizer dramatically deepens blue skies, reduces unwanted reflections on nonmetallic surfaces and saturates colors, especially outdoors. The filter can be rotated to achieve the desired effect.
