Optolong and DEO have partnered to bring you an innovative solution to use light pollution filters on your Sony NEX and A7 series cameras. You can now easily drop in your favourite light pollution filter and have the option to use either Canon or Nikon lenses, available in wider varieties, with your Sony cameras.

 

The DEO adapter has two parts — Drop-in Filter Adapter and Lens Adapter.

 

The Drop-in Filter Adapter allows you to easily drop in either Optolong L-Pro or Optolong UHC filter (both included) into the adapter which sits behind the lens. This allows you to shoot with wide-angle lens without the limitation of front-mounted filters. With the two filters included, you have the flexibility to use Optolong L-Pro for light to medium light polluted skies or Optolong UHC when the light pollution is strong.

 

The DEO Lens Adapter is available in two flavours, which allows you to use Canon or Nikon lenses on your Sony NEX and A7 series cameras.

 

Cyclops Optics is now providing an 15% discount early bird promotion until 17 October 2016. Free shipping applies!

I REALLY like this design in theory.

Is it possible to buy the filter holder/lens adapter without the filters? Not to trash the filters you supply, but a lot of us already own filters and may not need to replace them, but a filter holder like this would really help.

Also,  Do you plan on adding any other models? Fuji, M4/3, etc? Or even T-mount (whether 42mm or "Wide-T"=48mm) to EOS/Nikon G/etc?

 

Thanks! Cool design. Color me interested.

Hi Brent,

 

Thank you for your enthusiastic support! Currently the Optolong L-Pro and UHC filters are part of the inseparable bundle. However, some customers requested buying extra Sony – Nikon/Canon adapter which we very welcome. :)

A kind reminder: 15% discount early bird promotion is ending this 31 October. 

 

Meanwhile, we now have the 52mm filter holders to use with your Optolong-DEO Sony-Canon/Nikon adapter which allows you to use various photographic filters.

Hi, I have an old ef 300mm lens with drop in 48mm size filter. Does this 48mm deo filter holder fit the canon drop in filter slot? Thanks.
