Due to be released in the fall of 2016, Wine Country Camera’s Filter Holder System is a smartly crafted piece of equipment that is seeking to go beyond anything else currently on the market. I never realized that filter holders could be so awesome until seeing what this could do.
In the public preview video shown above, we get to see for the first time how the upcoming filter holder system will work. Designed to be as light-tight as possible, the system incorporates a few new ideas on just how to do that. Starting from the internal polarizer with a dedicated turn knob on the holder unit, to the “filter vaults” which encase the filters for side protection, better handling, and a light-tight seal, the WCC Filter Holder System looks like a promising solution for those that want better quality results. My current LEE filter holder does a fairly poor job at preventing light leaks all around, so I am really looking forward to seeing improvements in this area.
The Wine Country Camera 100mm Filter Holder System will be compatible with currently available 2mm 100x100mm and 100x150mm filters from brands such as LEE and NiSi. The 100mm Holder Kit will cost $299, additional filter vaults cost $35, adapter rings cost $25, and the circular polarizers cost $149. All the details can be found on their website.
