New filters from Marumi - Marumi Super Circular Polarising Filter and the Super Lens Protection Filter now available in the UK.
Kenro has announced the UK release of two new Marumi digital high grade filters, the Super Circular Polarising Filter, and the Super Lens Protection Filter.
The selection of Marumi digital high grade filters have been specially designed with digital photography in mind. Each filter uses a specially developed ultra-low reflection coating to minimize internal reflection off the cameras built-in CCD and CMOS Sensors. Other anti-reflect features include a special slim frame with satin smooth finish and a black ink process on the glass edge to eliminate flare.
Both new filters incorporate the same features as the popular Digital High Grade range, plus three additional benefits. They both incorporate Hard Protection that guards the surface of the lens from scratches even with heavy duty use. They are also water and oil repellent, meaning water and oil spots simply wipe off. Both ranges also come with Anti-fouling, this keeps the lens surface clean from dust and dirt. Additionally these filters are lens cap capable.
The Super Circular Polarising Filter can be rotated to reduce reflection off highly reflective surfaces, it also increases colour saturation under sunshine bright conditions.
The Super Lens Protection Filter has a colourless lens protection filter that is designed to minimize flare and ghosting on CCD and CMOS sensors. The thin mount is designed to prevent vignetting when used with wide angle digital lenses.
Both filters are available in the following sizes: 49mm, 52mm, 55mm, 58mm, 62mm, 67mm, 72mm, 77mm and 82mm. Prices for the Super Circular Polarising Filters range from £83.15 to £186.82, while the Super Lens Protection Filters start at £33.06, rising to £72.79.
"Marumi filters offer photographers a simple, cost-effective way of improving their images," says Kenro Managing Director, Paul Kench. "The difference between an image taken using a polarising filter and one without is really striking. The lack of reflection plus the increased contrast achieved with a polarising filter are very difficult to replicate in post production."
