H&Y, the company that introduced the first magnetic filter mounts, has announced a Kickstarter campaign to bring a new variable-size circular filter mount to market.
The new mount system, called the H&Y Revoring, comes in three sizes:
37-49mm compatible with 52mm filters
6-62mm compatible with 67mm filters
67-82mm compatible with 82mm filters
You pick the Revoring to match your lens, for example a lens with a 77mm filter thread requires the 67-82mm Revoring, and then you mount the appropriate filter size – 82mm in this example.
The Revoring adapter has a twist mechanism that closes a set of aperture blades, and when they’re allowed to snap back out when the Revoring is held at the end of a lens, it grips onto the filter thread. It’s an ingenious system that leaves you wondering why it’s not been done before.
H&Y Revoring Variable Neutral Density ND3-ND1000 + Circular Polarizer
As well as the basic Revoring, H&Y is introducing a Revoring that has a variable ND filter and circular polarising filter built-in.
The Variable ND filter has a range of ND3-N1000, which is equivalent to 1.5-10EV. That makes it of use for long exposure photography and videography at wide apertures.
