Kipon EF-S/E AF with ND Filter


Recommended Posts

Oops, the Kipon does 7 stops (1.5 to 7) . (I was confused by the "4 step range" wording in the exclusive distributor's Adorama ad and an older announcement on DPReview) Also, although removing the filter is possible, you lose infinity focus.

The Fotodiox goes from 1 to 8.5 stops, the variable ND filter is not removable, and the ring is geared.

I would be interested in seeing a comparison between the color casts these two adapters cause.

Still looking forward to how this more advanced (but unfortunately much pricier) electronic version will do, since it provides FS5 level functionality and full wireless controls to Canon EF lenses (like the Aputure DEC does):

Actually now it's the Aputure DEC Vari-ND (electronic variation from 3 to 11 stops allegedly without color casts) that looks like it will be the first to market (maybe they bought the tech from Genus?), supposedly by the end of the year!
