How do I find my filter thread size?
Your filter thread size should be marked on your lens by a ø symbol. For example, if you see a ø62, then your lens has a filter thread size of 62mm. If you can’t find it you can always use a ruler to measure the diameter of the filter thread to determine the size you need (this guide shows you how). Or, try googling, for example: “Canon 85mm f/1.8 thread size”.
Do you sell Filter Rings or Step Up/Down Rings separately?
No, at this stage they are only sold as part of the OMNI Creative Filter System. However, this is something we may consider in the future.
Can I buy the large size and use other step-down rings to fit smaller filter thread sizes?
Yes, you can if you have step-down rings that go from 77mm (the native size of the Large ring) to whatever your smaller lens filter thread size is.
What lenses does OMNI work with?
OMNI can be used on most prime and zoom lenses with both auto and manual focus, as well as full frame and crop sensor cameras.
Does OMNI work on Lensbaby lenses?
OMNI is compatible with Velvet 56, Velvet 85 and Burnside 35 only.
Will the magnets in OMNI damage my camera gear?
We can confidently say that the magnets used in the OMNI Creative Filter System will not damage any of your camera gear. Most newer cameras, SD cards, phones, and computers have solid state hard drives which magnets do not affect. Our magnets, while strong enough to support the OMNI system, are not nearly the strongest magnetic camera accessory on the market. Magmod, makers of magnetic camera accessories, shared this great article and video demonstrating how and why magnetic accessories won’t harm your gear.
Please note that there are some older devices (unrelated to camera gear) that can be affected by magnets, including credit cards, pacemakers, older TVs, older hard drives, and speakers. However, OMNI’s thick felt pouch should shield anything else in your bag (credit cards, etc) from these adverse effects.
What do I do if a Step Up/Down Ring gets stuck to the Filter Ring or my lens?
The OMNI Creative Filter System contains a filter wrench to help you remove if this occurs.
