Irix EDGE filters system update


An update on the Irix surprise I reported about two weeks ago - it seems that for Photokina, Irix will update their EDGE filters system:

New family member of Irix EDGE filters system

The Irix EDGE family of products that previously contained ND filters with different densities, UV filters and polarizing filters, is now expanding with a new long-awaited member to the group consisting of 100mm square system filters.

The base of the new system is Irix EDGE IFH-100 holder, lightest and thinnest in its class designed for 100mm filter systems.

The construction is made of aluminium alloy which guarantees a construction of high strength and rigidity. This allows an extremely compact size while maintaining a wide functionality, as well as an aesthetic appearance that matches the rest of Irix products. The bracket can be mounted onto lenses with thread diameters from 52mm to 95mm, using adapter screws which are then fitted into the threads on the lens. In addition, for Irix 15mm lenses, a special bayonet adapter has been developed which allows the lenses to be mounted identically on the the lens hood mount.

The Irix Edge IFH-100 allows you to use two filters simultaneously without the vignetting effect. The design of the filter holder base is equipped with a latch that allows fast and easy attachment of the holder to the lens and allows free rotation to adjust the filter position to the scene for best capture. The mounted holder still allows the use of the lid for protecting the lens.

Irix square filters have standard 2mm thickness and are made of high-quality optical glass, which is also used for the production of optical elements in the lenses. Our filters are characterized by the highest precision and optical quality available and so are able to meet the excellence expected by the highest quality lenses.

The filters will be available in two standard formats, 100x150 and 100x100. The first, size 100 x 150, will contain gradual filters with a soft and hard transition, as well as an Reverse Gradual filter for taking pictures of sunrises and sunsets. The second consists of 100 x 100 full-ND filters, with the entire surface being responsible for light reduction.

The filters were applied to both sides of NANO hydrophobic and oleophobic coatings, as well as anti-reflective multi-coatings, in order to preserve the high contrast and natural colours in the pictures. Thanks to the hydrophobic coating, the filter surface is easy to clean and facilitates the use of filters in difficult weather conditions.

Filters and holder are covered by a five-year warranty for mechanical components and the anti- reflective layer.!

Each filter is packaged in a practical case that protects the entire surface of the filter against external elements, and is equipped with a magnetic latch that protects the case from particles getting inside, which can scratch the filter.

Irix EDGE family will be constantly growing. The nearest premiere expected - Irix EDGE full ND 100x100mm filters. Currently available densities:


For the premiere the first 300 orders will receive a gift in the form of an Irix Edge Square Filter Protector Set. It is made of a light-absorbing black material which also suppresses shocks, and prevents light from seeping through the filter edges. This improves contrast and prevents any flaring or the formation of flares.
