H&Y’s new REVORING Black Mist matches on any lens with out step-up rings


The REVORING from H&Y filters is an attention-grabbing idea. As a substitute of getting to purchase a number of step-up rings for all of your totally different diameter lenses to make use of bigger screw-on filters, you simply purchase one “variable” diameter REVORING that matches on an entire bunch of various filter diameter lenses. And you may connect and detach it rather more shortly than a regular screw-on filter, too.

The system was first launched in June of final 12 months with a VND + CPL combo. Now the corporate has simply introduced a brand new Black Mist filter, accessible in three strengths, that you should use both by itself or magnetically connect to your present REVORING VND+CPL filters.

The REVORING itself, as beforehand talked about right here, is basically a filter adapter system. On the again is an aperture-like association that enables it to suit inside a spread of various filter diameters. These adapters can be found in three dimension ranges protecting 37-49mm, 46-62mm and 67-82mm. Solely the latter, two, nonetheless, are appropriate with the brand new Black Mist filter. On the entrance is a mount for attaching your magnetic filters.

However for those who’ve by no means used a Black Mist filter, what does it do? Nicely, because the title suggests, it offers the phantasm of mist. It creates like a haze impact over your shot that reduces distinction and makes gentle sources glow (a bit just like the “Glow” impact in After Results – however… for actual, in-camera). Right here’s a comparability shot utilizing no filter vs the 1/8, 1/4 and 1/2 power REVORING Black Mist filters.

Precisely how noticeable the impact can be does largely rely upon the scene you’re trying to shoot. Low distinction scenes could not see a lot profit, though it ought to nonetheless assist to melt edges and forestall that clinically sharp look of contemporary digital cameras. However while you’ve bought a excessive distinction scene with robust gentle sources, the impact could be very noticeable and can provide an analogue film-like high quality to the photographs.

The H&Y Black Mist Filter is accessible in three strengths (1/8, 1/4 and 1/2 power), and every is accessible in two flavours; REVORING or Magnetic. The REVORING model is what you want for those who haven’t purchased into the REVORING system but. That is the filter with the REVORING variable adapter ring built-in so you possibly can shortly swap it between lenses. The magnetic model is designed to mount on high of the REVORING VND+CPL filter launched final 12 months.

It’s a very attention-grabbing idea and it’s good to see them popping out with filters persons are truly utilizing. As soon as the road will get a bit extra fleshed out, I can see it doubtlessly changing into a standard characteristic in a filmmaker’s package bag. For now, although, I feel it nonetheless must develop a bit extra. And for severe filmmakers, a matte field is sort of at all times going to be preferable to spherical filters (even for those who don’t must screw them on).

The H&Y REVORING Black Mist filter is accessible to pre-order now for $109-119 and the H&Y Magnetic Black Mist filter is accessible to pre-order now for $119-139 or in a bundle with the REVORING VND+CPL for $249-289. Worth varies relying on dimension. Delivery is anticipated in early September.

What do you assume? May you add this filter system to your filmmaking gear bag?
