This kit includes:
• SLR Magic HyperPrime CINE 1216MFT
• SLR Magic 77mm Variable ND Filter HyperPrime CINE 1216MFT
The HyperPrime CINE 12mm T1.6 lens is ideal for many types of photography. Extremely fast T1.6 lens offering a 12mm wide angle (24mm equivalent) and is exclusively designed for the Micro Four Thirds mount on Olympus & Panasonic compact system cameras. The 12mm (24mm equivalent) is particularly well-suited for wide angle photography and low light shooting, along with the fast T1.6 aperture for full depth of focus control.
Cinematographers will love this lens. The solid metal construction houses twelve aperture blades giving a beautiful bokeh and a "de-clicked" aperture control (aperture measured in T-stops and this is the actual light transmission). The aperture can therefore be set steplessly and smoothly, the de-clicked aperture allowing smooth manual transitions in varying light conditions. The 12mm HyperPrime Cinema lens features built-in gearing to couple with follow focus rig systems.77mm Variable ND Filter
The 77mm 0.4-1.8 Variable ND Filter - Mark II is a high quality variable neutral density filter providing a reduction of about 1.3 to 6 stops (ND1.3 to ND64) with 77mm rear filter thread.
This variable Neutral Density filter creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed. The degree of density is easily controlled by rotating the front filter ring via the non-removable lever. Calibrated markings (12 reference points) make it easy for repeatable positions. The front filter ring has a larger diameter than the rear which is designed to avoid vignetting, even when using with wide angles lenses.
The latest Mark II versions feature the ability to rotate the filter without unscrewing it from the lens, assisting the orientation of the polarisation effect in Variable NDs. This is particularly useful when dealing with the polarisation effect expansive skies in landscape photography for example. The SLR Magic Variable ND filters are the highest quality multicoated optical glass to ensure the best performance. Variable ND filters usually show striation patterns in the out-of-focus circles of confusion in the bokeh but the SLR Magic Variable ND filters are optimized to suppress such unwanted artefacts. Suitable for film or still photography use. Includes protective case and front lens cap.
