From Fotodiox:
 
Fotodiox Introduces Two WonderPana Filter Systems, and its own Signature Line of High-Quality Filters for Professional Photographers
 
Leading photography distributor expands offering, manufactures its own line of camera filters for professional photographers and videographers
 
Fotodiox WonderPana Filter System
 
Waukegan, Ill. Aug. 22, 2012 – Fotodiox (www.fotodioxpro.com), a leading lens adapter and accessories manufacturer and distributor, today introduces the WonderPana 145 and WonderPana 66 Filter Systems. Designed to work flawlessly with the WonderPana Systems and compatible with others on the market, Fotodiox also introduces its new PRO line of ten neutral density filters. These ingenious lens filter systems represent the first products in the new “Wonder” line of original products planned for release by Fotodiox in the coming year.
 
Fotodiox’s WonderPana Systems are ideal for panorama, nature, architectural, fashion and event photographers, as well as analog and digital filmmakers who are looking to better manage lighting balance. A lens hood filter system designed for Super Wide Angle (SWA) and Ultra Wide Angle (UWA) lenses, they are compatible with the following lenses:

  • Nikon: 14-24mm FX, 14mm FX
  • Canon: 14mm Full Frame, 17mm TS Full Frame
  • Tokina: 16-28mm Full Frame, 10-17mm APS-C
  • Sigma: 12-24mm Full Frame, 12-24mm II Full Frame, 8-16mm APS-C, 14mm
  • Panasonic: Lumix 7-14mm, micro 4/3 format
  • Olympus: 7-14mm, 4/3 format
  • Korea Lens (Samyang and various private label versions): 14mm Full Frame

Both WonderPana Systems allow the use of Fotodiox PRO 145mm round filters including UV, Polarizer and Neutral Density (ND) filters. The large circular filter design prevents the typical glare and unwanted reflection issues often found in other designs.
 
“By introducing the WonderPana Systems, we are offering photographers and cinematographers the ability to capture images with the right lighting balance and skip the HDR software post production process,” said Drew Strickland, vice president of Fotodiox. “With the new Wonder line, we are bringing more innovative, quality products to the market and giving photographers the tools they need to capture amazing shots.”
 
Fotodiox WonderPana Filter System
 
WonderPana 145 Filter System
 
The WonderPana 145 Filter System includes a metal adapter hood that accommodates the Fotodiox PRO 145mm round filter format. It is compatible with all Fotodiox PRO 145mm filters, including the new 145mm PRO filters. It is also easily upgradeable to the WonderPana 66, allowing the use of industry standard 6.6” rectangular filters. The WonderPana 145 System holder is available with several different filter kit options.
 
WonderPana 66 Filter System
 
The WonderPana 66 Filter System will accept all Fotodiox PRO 145 filters, in addition to industry standard rectangular 6.6” filters from Schneider Optics. The WonderPana 66 System can accommodate two filters at the same time: either two rectangular filters, or one circular and one rectangular filter. Similar rectangular filter systems compatible with LEE (150mm) and Cokin X-Pro (130mm) rectangular filters are also slated for release in 2013.
 
PRO Filters
 
Six of the new PRO filters are available in Fotodiox’s exclusive 145mm round format, similar to a traditional round screw-in filter, only much larger in size. These 145mm filters, in concert with the holding system, enable full coverage of the protruding front-lens elements inherent in SWA and UWA lenses in the following filter types: Multi-Coated UV, Circular Polarizer and 4, 8, 16, and 32 ND filters.
 
Fotodiox is also releasing four 6.6” x 8.6” 4mm thick, rectangular-shaped Graduated Neutral Density filters in the following grades: ND .6 Soft and Hard Edges; and ND .9 Soft and Hard Edges. These CR-39 based ND filters can weather almost any environment, as they are practically unbreakable and scratch resistant. Fotodiox’s revolutionary new filter offerings will enable photographers and filmmakers to achieve balanced horizon shots in camera, eliminating the need for tedious post-production editing.
 
Availability & Pricing
 
The WonderPana Systems are available for pre-order starting today on the Fotodiox website and will be released October 15. The WonderPana 66 System starts at $350 and the WonderPana 145 System starts at $200.
 
As a complement to the WonderPana System, Fotodiox is now taking pre-orders on the WonderBurst HSS-8000, a 1/8000 high-speed sync wireless remote flash trigger compatible with any camera flash or strobe. The WonderBurst HSS-8000 kit includes the receiver and transmitter, and is priced at $79.95. A Sony NEX version, without high-speed sync, is also available for pre-order now for $49.95. The WonderBurst NEX allows the Sony NEX 3 & 5 Series cameras, with proprietary NEX hot-shoe, to remotely trigger a flash with a standard hot-shoe. The WonderBurst Systems will also be released October 15.
 
Watch for these products to become available at Amazon on October 15th, 2012.
