Carl Zeiss DigiDiopters New for HD Lenses
Carl Zeiss has launched its new DigiDiopters, a set of diopters in +1 and +2 magnification that attach to the front of a 2/3-inch HD lens to provide increased close-focus range and magnification capability.

DigiDiopters employ an achromatic dual-lens assembly to minimize color fringing and spherical aberration. It also has the Zeiss proprietary, anti-reflective coating that reduces light loss and flare while improving transmission for crisp images with saturated colors and accurate blacks.

Zeiss DigiDiopters weigh about 10 ounces each, and can be attached to the camera lens or to each other via a single thumbscrew. A self-centering clamping mechanism maintains a proper distance between diopter and lens and keeps them parallel to each other. It also allows stacking a +1 and +2 diopter together on the front of the lens for a +3 magnification.

The Zeiss DigiDiopters are manufactured at the Carl Zeiss Optics factory in Oberkochen, Germany and marketed worldwide by Band Pro Film & Digital of Burbank, Calif.
