REALPRO series is designed according to highest Kenko quality control standards and experience in producing photographic filters. REALPRO series aims to meet professional and amateur photographer demands that are becoming more varying and specific.
Despite the high-pitch development of digital technologies, black and white photography still keeps its positions as separate and quite popular genre. There are a lot of different techniques used in black and white photography, and one of them is about infrared light. The result is rather interesting; photos made in infrared spectrum have strange colors due to temperature of the objects: warm objects like foliage or asphalt will be lighter in color shown in white, and cold objects (tree trunks and water) will appear in dark colors.
Kenko REALPRO R72 was designed especially for this kind of photography. This filter will cut all visible light range and will transmit only infrared spectrum with wavelength more than 700mm.
Usually sensors of digital cameras are more sensitive than film cameras. That's why lights can create unwanted effects in the image due to light reflections in the lens itself. Filters, as they are also optical equipment, can make the situation even worth. That's why filters need Anti-Reflection Multi Coating.
Both side multi anti-reflection coating adopted in REALPRO R72 is aimed to eliminate any chance of unwanted reflections and flares on the image.
Kenko REALPRO R72 allows you to get images in infrared light that is invisible for human eyes. You will see something that you have not seen before.
These kind of images basically can be either red if you set color mode or black and white if you set BW mode in the camera. But after certain deep after processing using editing software you may get some blueish colors for the sky. This technic will open for you some additional opportunities in photography.
To reduce to minimum any unwanted reflections REALPRO R72 adopts black aluminum satin finish almite frame. Satin finish will increase friction between fingers and frame for quick operation and satin black frame will minimize internal reflections.
To reduce the internal light reflections off the edge of the filter glass Kenko uses the technology of black rimming. The outer rim of the glass plate is treated with a specific black ink prevent any leaking of the light.
REALPRO R72 is available in diameters from 49mm to 82mm.
|Every REALPRO filter comes with durable re-usable plastic case with UV-cut function. Since the polarization film is sensitive to UV light REALPRO case will lengthen life of the filter.|
