Electronic ND (Electronic Neutral Density Filter) is based on modern liquid crystal materials and optics controlled electronically, which is completely unlike conventional technology such as a rotating filter wheel or polarising ND Filters. The e-ND on MAVO brings sharp images with color fidelity but without any drawbacks of traditional variable ND.
Compared to traditional optical glasses, electronic ND (Electronic Neutral Filter) gains a lot of advantages: eliminating the ND filters at the front of lenses; adjust the exposure seamlessly over a very wide range; keep MAVO and your gear into a more compact and lightweight set when ND needed. The e-ND developed by Kinefinity also is available on PL Type.
So far, there are three types of EF mounting adapters for different scenarioes:
Regular EF mounting adapter without any glass or filters: Clear, 0 stop;
New EF mounting adapter with e-ND in this page: 0.6~2.1, 2~7 stops;
EF mounting adapter with KineEnhancer: 0.72 focal reducer, extra 1 stop for max iris.
For bundle of regular EF mounting adapter and EF mounting adapter with e-ND, you will get US$100 discount off. Compared to NiSi ND filters pro package, it even costs less, while gains much more features.
Bring Optics and Electronic into One
The Mounting adapter with Built-in Electronic ND (e-ND) employs high-precision hybrid of liquid crystal material, optics and electronic technology. It covers the widest range from 0.6 to 2.1(2 stops to 7 stops).
At the same time, it remains consistent color accuracy over such wide range when working with MAVO.
Integrate e-ND into mounting adapter, it means no optical ND filter needed in front of lenses, therefore no need of filter holder or even matte box, which reduces loads of shooting system greatly: more compact and lightweight, and also smoother operating. So it is very good for one-man band, documentary shots, shooting at harsh environments, like North and South Polar areas.
Mounting adapter with e-ND keeps MAVO lightweight and compact, again.
At the same time, the cine-style mounting adapter has electronic contacts to control EF lenses aperture by wheel on camera or SideGrip.
