The SLR Magic Cine 35mm T1.4 Mark II Lens with Fuji X Mount and 52mm Variable ND is a B&H Kit that provides you with a variable ND for further exposure control when capturing your footage. Advantages of a variable ND over a set of NDs include being able to make minute adjustments in increments of less than a 1/3rd of a stop as well as making quicker adjustments than having to swap out different filters.
The included 50mm lens covers APS-C-sized sensors, provides a wide aperture range to choose from and is meant to work with cameras that have a Fuji X mount. The lens's non-rotating front allows you to use a polarizer or variable polarizer while avoiding unwanted exposure shifts or polarizing effect changes when focusing your lens.
The SLR Magic Cine 35mm T1.4 Mark II Lens with Fuji X Mount supports cine-style shooting on a camera with a Fuji X Mount. It features a fast T1.4 to T16 aperture range with a clickless iris that allows smooth pulls, and geared focus and aperture rings.
The lens follows the industry standard focus rotation, so when working with an optional follow focus unit there is no need to make an adjustment to how you work or add a reversing gear. The lens front does not rotate as you focus the lens; this allows you to use optional accessories such as clip-on matte boxes, or the SLR Magic Anamotphot adapter. The mark II features stronger mechanical components than the mark I version of the lens, allowing you to use the optional SLR Magic Anamporphot adapter or achromatic diopters without requiring an optional lens support.
The SLR Magic 52mm Self-Locking Variable Neutral Density 0.4 to 1.8 Filter is a solid variable neutral density filter that is designed to mount onto lenses with 52mm front filter threads and provides an exposure reduction of 1.3 to 6 stops. The 0.4 to 1.8 density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. The degree of density is easily controlled by rotating the front filter ring, helping you to predetermine the additional exposure length required. By slowing your exposure time or increasing your aperture, you are able to control depth of field and convey movement more easily. For easier, repeatable control over density settings, the front ring is visually demarcated with numbers representing different density values and includes a rotation lever to further enable fast and precise positioning of the front ring. Once the front ring is rotated into a position that corresponds to the desired amount of density, the filter's rear ring can then be turned to lock the front ring into place, helping to ensure consistent exposures.
This filter is constructed from optical glass for clarity and color fidelity. It is multi-coated to prevent internal ghosting as well as reflections and also features a 62mm mount which helps to reduce the likelihood of vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses.
