    If a reputable optical filter company was to offer user installable/removable in-dwelling behind-the-lens filters would you want to buy?


    A complete kit would comprise :-

    Individual filters mounted or clip-in inserts in choices of Clear, ND and IRND of various densities. LC1/8., LC1/4.

    Forward offset shim sets for lens mounts and for the lens control conductor pin strips.

    Allen keys for the lens mount screws.

    Tool for fitting/removing the filters.

    Kit box to hold the filters when not in use.


    This is a purely hypothetical query. The new Komodo seems to be a good candidate.

    I have experimented with a reconstructed broken URSA MINI 4.6K and found it to be doable and useful for keeping the camera as barebones light as it can practically be. I have not studied the throats of Red cameras or the new Komodo so the whole notion might be a foolishness.

    I can help with the hypothetical and move it into reality.

    For a few months now there are two companies working on this right this second. One is nearly shipping. One system is very forward thinking.

    Now there's a go. Imagination doesn't have a chance to go stale it seems.
