Firecrest 100mm filters

Just purchased a second Firecrest 100mm holder magnet kit for my wife, I have been using the kit for a while now and couldn’t be happier. So easy to use and very quick to take on and off the lens. There is a good range of filters available and all are top quality and produce great results.

Great Buy

I am delighted with it and can't wait to use it on my upcoming trip to senja with on of your brand ambassadors, Bernard Geraghty. He recommended them to me on a previous trip and recommended them to me.

Stylish and fully functional

The new magnetic holder kit is a significant improvement on what was already the brilliant mk2 holder. It is now so much easier to add or remove the circular polariser (particularly when it is really cold) and leave the rotating ring and CPL on your camera with the magnetic lens cap making it quicker and easier to set up and shoot than before.

PRODUCT FEATURES

A bigger polariser giving you a wider view

With recent developments in optical design, it has become more common for lenses to have larger threads. To accommodate these advancements we have expanded our CPL (circular polarising filter) to 86mm. This means wider compatibility and better performance on a range of new wide-angle lenses. It also makes it compatible with a range of cinema lenses such as the Tokina 11-20MM T2.9.

The polariser can be fitted into either included rotating ring adapter, and becomes an integral part of the holder. The polariser is operated with an easy to use thumbscrew. This allows you to set your grads and then dial in the exact polarising effect you want. Due to its free movement, this means you can leave the polarising filter (CPL) attached at all times and simply turn off the effect if not wanted. 

 The construction of the filter also means you can use the CPL filter as an independent filter without the need of the holder.

More step rings, more flexibility.

For improved performance on an even wider range of lenses, the holder now ships with two rotating adapters as standard. These adapters allow the lens to sit closer to the filters helping with wide-angle photography. The kit includes an 86mm - 86mm rotating adapter and a 86mm - 82mm adapter. For best performance on 77mm and smaller wide-angle lenses, it is recommended to use the included step rings from the 86-86mm rotating adapter.

The holder frame

We have made many subtle changes to improve the ergonomics of the holder, making it easy to hold and use even when wearing gloves in cold weather. The frame itself is made from aircraft-grade aluminium and includes scratch-resistant ABS slots and an integrated light leak gasket. The addition of a gasket on the frame removes the need to add gaskets

The holder now comes with two sets of covers, one vented for use with grad filters and a completely closed one for improved performance on long and extremely long exposure photography. The light guards add an extra level of utility for photographers who work in changeable environments. The holder also functions like any other holder without the guards when light leak or reflection is of lower importance. In the spirit of flexibility, all holders ship with extra slots that can be used as spares or with the included longer screws to make it a three-slot holder, making room for an incredible four filters with the included 86mm rear mount circular polariser attached.

The clip system has been totally redesigned for a stronger mechanical connection to all lenses, so the holder can be used in even the toughest conditions. The system can be rotated freely or locked tightly in position with a simple and robust thumbscrew.  The holder features improved slots giving a firm and smooth resistance, lowering the amount of pressure required. This gives confidence when placing a filter.
