The Samyang Filter Holder model SFH-14 is for the Samyang 14mm f/2.8, Samyang 14mm f/2.8 Nikon AE version, and Samyang 14mm T3.1 VDSLR Cinema lens versions.
Samyang holder SFH-14 has been designed exclusively for Samyang 14mm lens and is suitable for both standard and V-DSLR cine version. This allows mounting of specific filters on the 14mm lens which does not have a built in filter thread because of the 14mm's super wide angle combined with the optical construction.
The holder is made of lightweight and durable ABS plastic. It features a flocked blackened interior, giving it a velvety black surface. (Flocking is the process of depositing many small fiber particles onto a surface. This removes internal reflections. The holder features double slides to use one or two filters at the simultaneously. Due to a rotatable construction of the holder, filters can be used both vertically and horizontally, as required.
The SFH-14 filter holder accepts 161 x 139 x 3 mm rectangular filters, such as some of the Cokin filters.
Currently there are three available Cokin rectangular filters which have been specially designed and made by Cokin for the Samyang SFH-14 holder sold separately. Cokin Filters for Samyang SFH-14
