First test of the aluminium "sample" adapter with a Lee compatible holder.
At last some good news.
While I'm trying to solve the VeroBlackPlus situation I'm working in new lens bayonets and today I test the adapter in the AF-S DX NIKKOR 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED with satisfactory results.
I have designed the adapter for the Nikon HB-23 bayonet that is compatible with:
In some weeks I will have tested this adapter.
Today I test the T77L adapter in the Tokina AT-X 11-16 PRO DXII and I now I can say that it works pefect.
Now it's possible to buy it in the shop.
Today I visit one of the beautiful beaches near my town to take some photos with the compatible Lee adapter (C83L), I post the photos in the Lee adapter section to show how it works with three slots at 10mm in an APC-S camera.
I used the Lee Big Stopper filter to take a photo and it's very difficult not to have flares with the Lee holder, I think I should design a new aluminium holder... or maybe I have one designed...
To see the new photos visit the Lee adapter section.
I just finish to test the adapter for the Tokina AT-X 12-28 PRO DX and it works better than I imaging.
The Tokina AT-X 12-28 PRO DX use the BH-77A hood and the new Tokina AT-X 116 PRO DXII the BH-77B, I'm totally sure that the bayonet mount it's the same with some differences in the petals but I will test it in the lens as soon as possible.
This adapters will be possible to buy the new week.
If you have a Lee holder and you want to continue using your round filters, now you can.
I finished to test the C83L and works like a charm ;)
You can see how it works in the video.
The adapter it's available for the next lenses:
I finish the adapter design for the Tokina 11-16 lens and at this moment denatek is printing the adapter, I hope I will finish to do some test the next week.
It will be available for the Lee and Cokin holder.
Do you think is it interesting? , give a comment...
It's now possible to buy the adapter for the next Canon lenses:
Some time ago I used to shot with a B+W ND 3.0-1,000X SC round filter with spectacular results until it fall off to the ground... due to this I started to study the best alternative in the 100x100 size, because it allow me to use ND grads without any vignetting.
I have been searching for a square (100x100mm) ND3.0 filter and I found this list:
There are miles of reviews about the Lee Big Stopper and others filters, like the Hitech ND3.0, but now there are a new competitor in the filters sector, Haida, a Chinese company that are making high quality filters using Scott glasses (the same glass used by B+W) with a good price.
In will not to do an extensive or professional review because I'm not an expert in filters.
I shot in a cloudy/rainy day with some sun rays once in a while, I know it was not the best day to test the filters.
The photos have been posted without any retouch, directly from the Adobe Camera Raw.
In the photos below you can see that the Lee (5950K) is cooler and the Hiada (5000K) is warmer, but not so warmer like the B+W round filter (see here) for my the photo have the perfect temperature with true colors.
In the next ones you can see a 100% crop of the images. I don't know if I'm wrong, but for my the Haida have a better definition.
And to finish an extreme b+w (yes, I love the exploded sky)...
I am very glad to announce this good news.
One of the most professional and good standing photography shop in Barcelona will support me in this project.
Soon could be possible to buy 3DPideas products in this shop and also play with them in theirs photographic workshops.
In this shop you will find all the hi-tech photographic technology that you can imagine (the Leica section is incredible), if anyone are visiting Barcelona I recommend you to visit this shop.
Lee have his own Ultra Wide adapters to use with ultra angular lenses that allow you take photos without any vignetting, but is it possible to improve this adapters?, are you using the Lee holder and want to use screwed filters?.
At this moment I'm testing the adapter C83L (that has been designed to work with the Lee holder) with a Lee compatible plastic holder.
The advantages of using this adapters in my opinion are:
La marca Lee dispone de su propio adaptador Ultra Angular para lentes ultra-angulares el cual permite sacar fotos sin viñeteos (en casi todas las configuraciones), ¿pero es posible mejorar estos adaptadores?, ¿estas usando el portafiltros de Lee y echas de menos poder usar filtros roscados?.
En estos momentos estoy testeando el nuevo adaptador C83L (el cual fue diseñado para funcionar con el portafiltros de Lee) con un portafiltros compatible.
Las ventajas que tienen los adaptadores diseñados por 3DPideas son:
