Kenko Tokina booth – Overview

Filters corner

Speaking of news, the left side on the frontal part hosted three brand new filter products.


          From left to right, the new Kenko ADVANCED DRONE FILTERS IRND KIT, a set of four filters compatible with drone models like the DJI Phantom 4 Pro/Advanced, that will perform smooth motion and optimal exposure, thus bringing drone footage to the next level.

         Following on, ZX CP-L filters for Kenko ZX series, a new series of filters with “floating frame technology”, that secures the filter glass to remain flat, not distorted or twisted inside the frame, thus providing sensational results in resolution performances.
Incorporating a completely new high-transmittance polarizing film, this new ZX C-PL filter has no slightly visible yellowish tint that usually other C-PL filters have, thus providing excellent color balance.


          Also, a new prototype of rectangular soft effect filter, the Half PRO SOFTON A, particularly suitable for starry-sky photography, as it will soften the light from the stars while keeping sharp the landscape below.

All feedbacks were extremely positive!
