Rollei Pro Filter Holder Sets – not only for Rollei Filters
Rollei’s pro square filter range doesn’t just feature pro-quality ND, GND and polarising filters but also includes storage boxes, a filter cleaner and four separate sizes of professional filter holders: 70 mm, 100 mm, 150 mm and 180 mm.
This means Rollei can offer you a complete range of photographic filters and accessories to take your photography to the next level. Of course, once you’ve decided to use Rollei pro square filters to turn your photographs into works of art, you’ll need a matching, professional-quality holder system for your filters. An easy-to-use holder system is absolutely necessary also in case you want to use your Lee, Nisi, Cokin und Haida pro filters on your lenses.
The major advantage of using Rollei filter holders is
the option they give you of using up to four photographic filters at the same time! Rollei’s versatile filter holders offer a light-tight seal and fit perfectly to a huge range of lenses. Each Pro Filter Holder (with the exception of the 150 mm and 180mm filter holder set) comes with a round polarising filter, and you can slot up to three additional square filters from Rollei, Lee, Nisi, Cokin and Haida into the holder at the same time.
While Rollei’s 150 mm and 180 mm Pro Square Filter Holder Set doesn’t include a CPL filter, a square polarising filter can be purchased separately. The polarising filter features the same high quality craftsmanship as Rollei’s other square filters – made from real glass (H-H9L) and finished on both sides with a nano coating.
Compatible with almost every model of camera and pro square filter system
The Filter Holder Sets in the 70 mm and 100 mm sizes each include a variety of adapter rings as part of the package. the Filter Holder Set for 70 mm square filters is the right system for lenses with a filter thread diameter of 52 mm or 58 mm. Other lenses with diameters of 40.5, 49 and 55 mm can also use this holder by fitting an additional adapter ring. Interchangeability with other well-known filter systems like Lee, Nisi, Cokin and Haidais fully guaranteed, as Rollei’s product philosophy relies on cooperation not complication.
If you own lenses with diameters of 52, 55, 58, 62, 67, 72, 77 and 82 mm, then you should choose the 100 mm Pro Filter Holder Set. The adapter rings for the stated sizes are already included as part of the package.
The Filter Holder Sets for filter sizes of 150 and 180 mm are designed for use with specific lenses and can only be used with these models.
Fitting the filter holder
A base ring is included with each of the Filter Holder Sets. This base ring is used to attach the filter holder to the lens. The base ring is screwed to the filter thread on the lens. The filter holder is then mounted onto the base ring. You can then slot your Rollei square filter into the filter holder, fixing it in place with the thumb screw.
Rollei square filters have chamfered edges, making it easier to insert them into the slot in the holder. Rollei’s ND filters are framed in a foam-like material that prevents the ingress of light.
If you are using a holder set with adapter rings and a CPL filter, then the sequence of steps is slightly different: here, the adapter ring is used to connect the base ring to the lens, so as to ensure that the filter holder is compatible with the lens diameter. The supplied CPL filter can optionally be screwed directly onto the base ring, since filter and ring both have the same diameter.
