Clip-Filters for Canon Full-Format Cameras

Since 2007 we do offer our extremly popular Clip-filters. Customers looking for a filter to be used with the "big" Bodies containing the Full-Format sensors, had to buy large (and expensive) filters to be screwed in front of a lens, as Clip-Filters were available for the APS-C sized bodies only.
All customers asking for Clip-filters for the Full-Format bodies were told "We are working on it, please wait!"

Now waiting is over, and we are proud to show you the result of our R&D:

Clip-Filters for Canon Full-Format Cameras 5D Mk II, 5D Mk III and 6D. (5D Mk I will work without LiveView only, the 6D MkII will not work with XL Clip-filters)
Please note that the XL-Clip filters will not work with the Canon 5DS, 5DSR, and the 5D Mk IV

For the advanced Astrophotographer we do offer a wide selection of filters: Perfect accessories for all kinds of astrophotography. To compile a usefull selection of filters for your obeserving goals we would be happy to give you advise, either via phone or eMail.
The full range of Astronomik filters is available as Full-Format Clip-Filters now. NEW: The OWB filter for daylight-photography with modified cameras is available now too.


* You might want to modify your camera to get a maximum sensetivity at H-alpha and SII for Astrophotography. But this has nothing to do with the Clip-Filters! You may use the Clip-Filters without any modifications to the body. (But some filters like H-alpha and SII-CCD might not make sense with an unmodified camera.)



The first series of XL-Clips was shipped in Dec 2013: Please read more in our news.
