Aurora Aperture has unveiled a new Adapter Mount Format Filter, or AMF, range of drop-in filters for mounting all DSLR lenses onto mirrorless cameras.
How it works is, the Aurora Aperture AMF filter sits inside a lens mount adapter and are thus much smaller than traditional, front-mounted filters. Aurora Aperture says:
The AMF drop-in filters work extremely well with ultra wide-angle lenses, especially with those that have a protruding front element and are without front filter threads. Those types of lenses require a bulky filter adapter paired with very large filters. They are inconvenient to carry around and are unfriendly to your wallet.
The AMF filter sits inside a mount adapter and we’ve designed the filter frame to be completely free from light leak.
With no light leak, Aurora Aperture claims its AMF filters cause zero vignetting in your images.
Currently the AMF range supports the Nikon FTZ adapter, Canon EF-EOS R mount adapter and Sigma’s MC-11 mount adapter for Sony E mount cameras such as the a7, a9, NEX, a5000, and a6000 series.
It also supports Sigma’s new MC-21 mount adapter for L mount cameras such as the Panasonic Lumix DC-S1, DC-S1R, Leica SL, and the forthcoming Sigma fp.
You can find more detailed information on all of the filters and their strengths over at Aurora Aperture’s website.
The new Aurora Aperture AMF range is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter, but has already doubled its goal. The company expects the AMF range to start shipping in October.
