    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.

    Lensmate Canon G16/G15 Quick Change Filter Adapter

    Jan 05, 2014

    Now you can add filters to your G16/G15 without a bulky tube adapter.

    The Lensmate Quick Change G16/G15 Filter Adapter Kit 52mm is $24.95.

    Only the tiny receiver (part 1) stays on the camera (it adds only 3mm to the depth of the camera). The filter/filter holder assembly (part 2) bayonets onto the receiver for quick changes without having to thread the filter on and off.

    The filter holder is retained by a low tension locking system, so very little torque is applied to the lens barrel when attaching and detaching it.

    Follow these links to see the filter adapter, macro samples or all of the compatible accessories for the Canon G16/G15.

    Lensmate Custom Soft Release Buttons

    Oct 10, 2013

    The Lensmate Custom Soft Release Buttons are now available.

    Our beautifully designed buttons are a perfect complement to the Lensmate Fujifilm Thumbrests. Fits any shutter button with a threaded hole.

    We offer several unique engraved designs, some based on traditional Japanese family crests, in both aluminum and brass at a cost of 19.95.

    The aluminum models have been color anodized, then the raised portions buffed to a high polish for a striking effect.

    The brass models receive a similar treatment – an overall patina is applied then the raised areas buffed to a high polish for contrast.

    Most users of our thumbrests find that the new position places the first joint of the shutter finger over the shutter button when the hand is relaxed. Our soft release buttons are shaped to nestle comfortably under the index finger first joint, enabling a softer shutter release and allowing lower shutter speeds without shake.

    Of course if you prefer using your finger tip, or it just lines up better with the shutter button you might prefer the non-engraved concave brass model, though there’s no reason you couldn’t use the convex model as well (mushroom shape). We will be offering anodized non-engraved convex and concave buttons in colors in the near future.

    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.

    Available on:
    Fujifilm FinePix X100S/X100, Fujifilm X-E1, Fujifilm FinePix X20/X10, and Fujifilm FinePix X-Pro1
