These Canon R5 Clip-In Filters Fit Between the Sensor and the Lens

Kolari Vision has announced a set of clip-in magnetic filters that fit between the sensor and the back of a lens. Compatible with the R adapter, or native RF lenses, these can be used to add rear filtering to RF lenses, or two layers of filtering when paired with the R filter adapter.

The company says that the R Magnetic Clip-In Filter for RF Mount can be used to quickly change the effective spectrum of a full spectrum camera. For example, the infrared clip-in filter can change a normal camera into an infrared camera without either fully converting the sensor itself or purchasing several differently-sized lens filters for a set of optics.

Kolari alleges that its R Clip-In Filters are the only such filters on the market that attach via magnetic force, which the company says makes for an easy and hassle-free installation and removal of filters while also making it more likely you’ll keep the sensor out of harm’s way. As shown in the two videos below, the EOS RP requires the addition of a magnetic piece around the sensor called the Mag Mount that allows the clips to snap into place as the RP has a plastic inner mounting area, but the EOS R, R5, and R6 mounting area is metal and therefore do not.

All these clip-in filters are also compatible with Kolari’s line of EOS R Drop-In filters that utilize the Canon EF to RF Drop-In Filter Adapter.

Kolari currently offers 18 different filters that fit into the magnetic clip-in system: 590nm Infrared, 665nm Infrared, 720nm Infrared, 850nm Infrared, UV/IR Cut Hot Mirror Pro 2, UV/IR Cut Filter, and a Clear Filter (full spectrum). The company also has a huge array of ND in one through eight stops in one-stop increments followed by 10, 15, and 20 stop variants.

All of the filters are coated with the company’s “anti-reflective and anti-smudge properties” that it says makes the filters much easier to clean while also can reduce stray reflections and artifacts that occur when shooting in bright, sunny light.

“Our wide selection of NDs, IR filters, and our UV/IR Cut filters are capable of turning your Canon EOS RP, R, R5, and R6 into a versatile multi-spectral machine without having to purchase multiple lens filters for each of your lenses,” Kolari says. “Eventually, we plan to offer fine-tuned filters for different shooting scenarios, such as anti-aliasing filters, night sky filters, underwater filters, low light filters, and other filters you would use if you were shooting video systems like the RED camera.”

The company initially launched the filters as a non-magnetic variation and eventually upgraded them to magnetic filters during its production process. As a result, anyone who already pre-ordered the non-magnetic filters was automatically upgraded to the magnetic version.

Kolari is accepting pre-orders for the filters now for $130 each and anticipates shipping units in mid-June.

Sony Field Tests its Airpeak Drone with 14mm f/1.8 GM Lens and FX3

Sony has quietly released a new video that shows its forthcoming Airpeak drone over the remote Iromote Island in Okinawa. The video features the drone outfitted with both a Sony Alpha 7S Mark III and new FX3 as well as the 14mm f/1.8 G-Master.

Sony has been slowly publishing news and updates with regards to the status of the Airpeak drone program since it officially revealed the system in January. Recently, Sony published an impressive wind resistance test that showed the drone is capable of maintaining its position with a full camera payload despite some seriously strong wind conditions.

As spotted , the video above is the most recent test conducted by the Airpeak team and shows footage that appears to be a mix captured from either the Alpha 7S Mark III or new FX3 camera as both are featured at some point in the short two-minute clip. All of the footage was captured using Sony’s 14mm f/1.8 G-Master lens though, which shows the kinds of sweeping shots that are possible when Sony’s latest wide-angle lens is paired with an aerial perspective.

“We have continued with field testing Airpeak in different environments, and in this issue would like to share video footage from field testing in Okinawa’s Iriomote Island,” Sony writes. “Footage was recorded using the recently announced 35mm Alpha E-mount FE14mm F1.8GM lens, and taking advantage of the ultra wide-angle lens, we were able to capture the dynamic natural landscape of Iriomote Island.”

While Sony has quietly published news about the Airpeak’s development over the last few months, this particular video is not included in its news feed and is unlisted for unknown reasons.

Sony is seeking professional collaborators for the purpose of obtaining feedback about its Airpeak drone system in both the United States and Japan. “Professional collaborators” are defined as people and companies who currently use drones professionally to create content or provide additional services to customers. Those who are welcomed to the program will receive updates on events and other activities hosted by Sony, be given opportunities to collaborate with products under development, and receive the latest information on our product development.

If Sony sticks to its initial timeline, the official announcement of availability for the Airpeak is imminent, as the company said in January that it would be launching the new business segment in the spring of 2021.
