Polecam to highlight Full Frontal Filter System
At IBC2009, Polecam will make the European debut of its FFFS (Full Frontal Filter System), which enables Polecam operators to use high-quality optical filters with compact HD cameras that have no integral filter mount.
The FFFS mount allows 62mm Tiffen or Cokin filters to be deployed with the 29mm diameter Fujinon TF lens series. Two or more filters can be combined without vignetting, even when the Fujinon TF 2.8mm (89-degree horizontal field-of-view) lens is used.
Polecam's FFFS includes a Polecam filter holder and five 62mm screw-fitting circular Tiffen filters plus a Cokin A121M Grad neutral gray medium filter. The supplied Tiffen filter set consists of infrared cut; 0.9 neutral-density (equivalent to three stops); 85B daylight corrector; 85BN9 combined neutral density and daylight filter; and a circular polarizer. The system comes complete with a Cokin A121M graduated neutral gray medium filter and a 62mm adapter ring. A LensPen lens cleaner is also supplied.
