The Everyday Sling might just be the perfect pack for not carrying too much gear, combining comfort with Peak Design's signature modern style.
Accessories manufacturer Fotodiox has launched a versatile new series of lens adapters for mirrorless camera users. The Fotodiox Pro DLX Stretch adapters not only allow you to mount off-brand lenses onto several major camera mounts, they also feature a built-in variable extension tube for macro shooting.
The DLX Stretch is a regular DLX lens adapter with one major difference: it features a barrel that turns to extend the distance between the lens and the sensor, endowing the set-up with the macro shooting capability of an extension tube. It isn’t clear how great the extension is for each of the adapters, but total distance will be dependent on the type of lens used.
The new adapters will be available for Sony E, Micro Four Thirds and Fujifilm X cameras and will come in a choice of 24 permutations to suit a collection of eight lens mounts—Canon EOS, Canon FD, Contax/Yashica, Leica R, Minolta MD, Nikon, Olympus Zuiko (OM), and Pentax K. If your particular lens mount doesn't have an aperture control ring, the adapter will throw that in as well.
In addition to the Sony adapter video above, you can find demos for the Micro Four Thirds and Fuji X mount adapters here.
Finally, in conjunction with this adapter release, Fotodiox has also introduced a range of filters for the DLX Stretch that drop in to the rear of the barrel and stay in place using magnets. Three ND filters—an ND4, ND8 and ND16—come with the kit, and feature their own leather case.
All of the Fotodiox Pro DLX Stretch adapters cost $130. For more information, visit the Fotodiox website.
Fotodiox Pro, creator and distributor of several lines of specialty solutions for videography, cinematography and photography, has announced a brand new addition to their extensive collection of innovative lens adapters: The DLX Stretch, a new series of 24 multi-function lens adapters for Sony E-Mount, Fuji X-Mount and Micro Four-Thirds mirrorless cameras.
The DLX Stretch is the latest in Fotodiox's ongoing commitment to creating and manufacturing the largest and most flexible library of lens adapters in the photo and cinema industry. Each DLX Stretch packs three levels of creative functionalty into a single lens adapter. Vintage and modern lenses can be mounted via eight different lens mounts.
A built-in helicoid allows adjustment of the overall length of the adapter for close-focus macro style shooting or backfocus adjustment. Plus, the specially-designed rear section of the DLX Stretch houses drop-in magnetic Neutral Density filters. Each kit includes ND4, ND8, and ND16 glass filters in a leather case.
"When we created the DLX Stretch, we set out to "stretch" what shooters expect from a lens adapter," said Bohus Blahut, marketing director for Fotodiox Pro. "Today's mirrorless cameras are amazing, but they suffer from too few native lens choices. The DLX Stretch adapters bring those choices back. Additionally, the DLX Stretch offers amazing imaging flexibility with its built-in macro-focusing helicoid as well as our revolutionary drop-in filter system for rapid-fire filter changes. With DLX Stretch lens adapters, you can get more done with a single lens than ever before."
DLX Stretch adapters are available for the following lens mounts: Canon EOS, Canon FD, Contax/Yashica, Leica R. Minolta MD, Nikon, Olympus Zuiko (OM), and Pentax K. Select models of the DLX Stretch also include additional aperture control for lenses that lack an aperture control ring. They are available now at FotodioxPro.com.
