The Irix Magnetic Mount System now features filters especially designed for the Irix Cine Lenses.
As a cinematographer, you’ve probably wondered what it’s like to experience real magic that can boost your creativity and improve your workflow. The work on a film set involves constant pressure, and every second is incredibly important. There’s the constant rush between individual takes, prop changes, the limited availability of actors and even the weather, always playing tricks on you. Meanwhile, the clock is constantly ticking for you and your camera to bring your idea to fruition on time.
That’s why we decided to develop a somewhat “magical” solution that not only creates more time for the actual shooting process, but also relieves some of the burden of the clock and, above all, lets you focus on your job – creation. Because the future belongs to smart solutions, we introduced the Magnetic Mount System designed for our Irix Cine lens line. The system is a unique and pioneering solution that ensures quick and safe mounting of accessories to the front of the lens, without the need for extra effort and motion.
You’ve already met the magnetic lens hood, and today we proudly present a new accessory in the MMS standard – our magnetic filters, which can be swapped in the blink of an eye! The Irix Edge Magnetic Mount System (MMS) filters have a strong magnetic mount that’s fully compatible with Irix Cine lenses. This feature allows you to swap and combine filters quickly and easily during recording, saving valuable time on the set.
Ultra-thin, threadless filter construction!
The filter construction is threadless , utilizing a series of strong, high-quality magnets, to provide a completely flat and ultra-thin (only 5mm) profile. It also makes filter maintenance easier – no more problems with gritty or dusty threads!
A Safe and Secure Magnetic Mount
Thanks to the effort dedicated to the design of our Irix Cine lenses, the Magnetic Mount System (MMS) filters perfectly adhere to the lens, creating a safe and secure connection, ready for action.
The Irix Magnetic Mount System: Easily Combinable!
Do you need to use neutral density filters and polarizing filters at the same time? No problem! The MMS filters stack neatly and easily. You be amazed at how quickly you’ll get used to the convenience and quick operation!
The Magnetic Mount System filters feature the same Super Resistant (SR) properties as the newest, improved generation of Irix Edge filters. This technology ensures excellent damage resistance. Toughened optical glass covered with a special nano-coating helps these filters survive almost anything.
Irix Edge filters are made of the highest quality optical glass with light transmission of 99.8% for minimal impact on exposure. Thanks to the glass and multi-layer, anti-reflective coatings on both sides, Irix Edge filters provide a perfectly sharp image with high contrast, with fewer flares. A dirt-repellent coating is also applied to both surfaces, helping you maintain an impeccable image.
The series includes a full range of functional MMS filters with a diameter of 86mm – compatible with the entire set of Irix Cine cinematographic lenses!
You can choose from UV, CPL and ND filters (available in the following densities: ND4, ND8, ND16, ND32, ND64).
The Irix Magnetic Mount System is a comprehensive tool that will speed your productivity on the set, and the MMS filters are the latest element of this innovative system that opens up new possibilities, offers convenience and increases your productivity!
