Simon Skinner - 2 years ago

Filter fanatics and photo/video accessory makers, STC, has announced the arrival of its all-new interchangeable clip filter series for the Nikon Z mount and, knowing how great these guys’ products have been in the past, we are excited. Oh yes we are!

STC, a clever Taiwanese brand that makes all manner of innovative imaging devices, has extended its range of Interchangeable Clip Filters with the launch of a new series for the Nikon Z Mount series of full-frame mirrorless cameras. Having brought the very first interchangeable clip filter series to market for the Canon EOS R mount back in June 2020, the new collection for the Nikon mirrorless range show a real commitment to these practical filters.

STC Interchangeable Clip Filters for Nikon Z Mount: Key Features

  • Compatible with all Nikon Z-Series cameras
  • Interchangeable kit includes Astro, Sensor Protector, ND & IR Pass filters
  • Compatible with Nikon FTZ adapter for ultimate versatility 
  • One filter – any lens!

Compatible with all Nikon Z Cameras

Taking STC’s approach of high-quality, simple use and value for money to an entirely new level, the new STC Clip Filter series is compatible with Nikon Z 7, Z 6, Z 50, Z 5, Z 7II & Z 6II cameras. Since the initial launch of STC’s range of clip filters for consumer cameras, many users across the globe have been reaping the benefit and convenience of the ‘one filter, any lens’ message. Users can be reassured of the same trusted high-quality construction, glass and market-leading nanocoatings found in all STC’s premium filter products, which are all common features in the new Nikon Z Series Interchangeable Clip Filter system. The new system allows users to switch filters using a magnetic tool, [provided].

Simple, Fast & Safe

Users familiar with STC’s clip filters will know that mounting and removal is simple, fast and safe. Designed to sit in the camera mount, between the lens and sensor, the new interchangeable clip filters, which are constructed with Aerospace grade 6061 aluminium alloy and processed with precision CNC machining, will sit completely flush within the camera with no chance of touching the camera’s delicate sensor. 

Compatible with all Nikon Z-Series cameras, every filter comes complete with double-sided NANO anti-smudge coating, making them completely waterproof, grease-proof and easy to clean.

The new STC Interchangeable Clip Filter’s patented design keeps the glass completely fixed and steady within the frame, meaning zero distortion from pressure, thermal expansion or contraction. This ensures sharp images even at long focal lengths.
