Advantages over Conventional Filters
As we told you in our original article back in April 22, the filter attaches directly in front of the sensor, giving the following advantages:
- no need to buy big filter holders for lenses with protruding lens elements, such as fisheye-lenses for Fujifilm X or lenses like the Fujinon XF 8-16mmf/2.8
- one filter works for all lenses, no matter what the lens filter size is
- saves you money, since you do not have to buy lots of different filters
- they are a good replacement for HSS (see video in this article)
- they are great for astrophotography (read below)
Clip-in filters are very popular in the astrophotography community, especially light pollution and narrow-band filters, because they can work with both camera lenses and telescopes. This is a good news for Fujifilm users, because Fujifilm cameras are very good for astro work, due to their superior sensitivity to some wavelengths (like hydrogen alpha, that most of the nebulae are made of) and good ISO performances.
