A few years ago, Jay and I decided it was time to do something to protect our filters. The plastic sleeves they came in were starting to crack and tear. Tiny pieces of dust and sand were finding their way inside, and scratching those fragile surfaces each time we pulled the filters from their sleeves. Filters are expensive! So, we started looking for solutions. Unfortunately, the cases we found for sale were bulky or flimsy. We knew what we wanted, so we set out to make it ourselves.
We scoured the fabric stores, looking for a sturdy fabric that would clean our filters as we used it. We drew our first pattern on brown paper. We pulled out our trusty sewing machine, and created our very first prototype… and we made two, so that we could both test them in the field. We carried those sleeves with us to various locations all over the world – we used them on beaches, on mountaintops, in swamps… and we liked them so much, that we never bothered to clean up the design or create a finished product. Until now!
When people started asking where we found our filter holders, we told them we made them ourselves, and let it go at that. But over the past three years, we’ve had so much interest in these little pouches, that we couldn’t ignore it. We put our heads together with Falling Camera Designs, and built a second prototype. We found better fabrics, cleaned up the seams, and learned from our mistakes. And we created a finished product. Jay and I have been testing them on-location – from the Canadian Rockies, to Hawaiian Volcanoes and Icelandic beaches – and we couldn’t be happier.
So now – at long last – we are offering you a chance to buy a micro-suede filter holder for your 100mm filters. We hope you enjoy them!
