The BT-100 Sound Blimp Lens Tube from AquaTech is a Sound Blimp accessory that complements the sound dampening of a Shadow and Scout series blimp. Foam padding inside the lens tube minimizes shutter sound from the camera and mechanical noise from the autofocus system, enabling the near-silent operation required during wildlife photography, on-set documentation, and other noise-sensitive photo assignments.
This lens tube is compatible with Shadow and Scout series Sound Blimps and will accommodate a Canon 85mm f/1.2L II USM, as well as other zoom or prime lenses up to 97mm long. A knurled grip on the lens tube allows the photographer to control the focal length of their zoom lens. A removable anti-reflective-coated front element allows the photographer to remain stealthy without degrading the image quality of their optics.
