High end compact cameras like the Sony RX100 or Canon S100 (right) with built in telescoping lenses can capture amazing quality images, but they could still beefit greatly from the use of filters such as Polarizers or Neutral Density Filters. Unfortunately, there has never been a simple, clean, and effective solution to mounting filters on these high end compact cameras - until now.


With the advent of Digital photography, filters are not often used. The look of many different lens filters can be easily duplicated through image editing software, however there is one filter that Digital Photo or Digital Video has not been able to replace: The Polarizer

Polarizing filters work by cutting the amount of polarized, or reflected light, that reaches the digital sensor. Polarized light can be found everywhere, including reflections on the surface of water, glass, reflecting from the surface of leaves, and even reflect from the soft blue of the sky. Polarized light often makes objects appear shiny. The use of a polarizing filter can reduce this, and will help saturate the colors, particularly in landscapes that contain foliage and a vast blue sky. Polarizers are very important filters and will retain information during image capture that is normally lost and cannot be recovered in post processing.


The revolutionary MagFilters provide the most innovative and unobtrusive filter solution to high end compact cameras. A very thin metal ring is first adhered to the front of the camera lens and still allows the lens to expand and retract back into the camera body.


The MagFilters quickly connect to the metal ring with strong magnets embedded in the MagFilter body. A grooved bevel design prevents slippage and ensures a secure bond to lock the MagFilter in place.


When not in use, the MagFilter can be quickly removed (no cumbersome unthreading involved) and the camera retains it's original compact form factor. The MagFilter system adds no additional bulk, which we find is an important feature for maintaining the pocket-ability of these small high end compact cameras, especially if you need to fit them back into their OEM travel cases.
