The Wine Country 100mm Filter Holder Kit system is the standard size for most Mirrorless, DSLR and Medium Format cameras. The system is compatible with 100x100x2mm and 100x150x2mm filters and adapter rings are available in all sizes from 49mm to 95mm. The holder system features a light-tight rotating polariser, a light-tight ND slot, and two push button adjustable grad filter slots. It is lightweight and designed for low vignetting.
Light Tight Recess for the ND Vault
Light leaking between the ND filter and the lens is the number one challenge faced by holder system users… until now. Wine country cameras have built a dedicated recess into the holder system to create a light-tight environment for the ND filter. This feature alone makes the 100mm Holder System the de facto standard for long exposure photographers. The vault surrounds your ND filter on all four sides, eliminating internal reflections caused by light entering on-edge, ensuring that your ND filter provides high-fidelity and high-contrast.
Push-button Adjustable Grad Vaults
The holder system features two stages for grad filters. Each stage is independently adjustable. Simply push the button, adjust the horizon line of the filter and release. The grad vaults are keyed for safety so your valuable filter doesn’t go plummeting into the earth the moment you push the button.
Polariser attachments on legacy holder systems can cause light leaking that creates haze and reflections in your shot, which is the very thing you’re trying to remove with the polariser. The removable polariser in the 100mm Filter Holder Kit is mounted inside the body of the holder, eliminating reflections and vignetting caused.
Rotation is controlled by an adjustment knob. The knob is placed on the lower-left rear of the holder so you can adjust it while looking through the lens. It’s geared so that the direction you turn the knob is the direction of filter rotation and constructed from wood, so you don’t have to freeze your fingertips off on those cold days.
"Do Not Disturb" Release
Installing or removing the holder without disturbing framing or focus is absolutely critical, especially for long exposure photographers who must frame and focus the image before adding a heavy stack of ND. Low Vignetting Wine Country Cameras have worked tirelessly throughout the design process to gain back every millimetre between the adapter ring and the outer grad tray to ensure that vignetting is reduced to an absolute minimum. No detail is too small, the wood handles are even carved away to reduce any chance of vignetting.
Some of the best locations can be more than a little chilly. So, the holder has been designed with wooden handles so that your fingers will enjoy outdoor photography as much as the rest of your body. Not only that but the wood is weather sealed for longevity.
