The series consists of three separate models, each of which measures in at between 3.2 and 3.5mm in depth, comes in filter sizes between 49mm and 82mm, and includes a clever ring setup that makes placing and removing the filters less of a hassle.
The ultra-slim form factor, weatherproofed design and clever traction system aren’t the only impressive aspects of this new line-up though. The price is equally impressive. Breakthrough Photography is offering these high-end quality filters at low-end prices, starting at $25 and working their way up to $110.
The first of these new filters is the X1 UV Standard Flat Back. This is your average UV filter, albeit much thinner. The second in the line-up is the X2. These aluminum encased filters come in both a UV and ND variety, with the latter available in both three and six stop ND varieties.
The last in the line-up are the X3 filters, which are secured between a CNC-cut brass frame and utilize German Schott B270 glass. As with the X2 model, the X3 is available in both a UV and ND model, with the three and six stop options.
Breakthrough Photography is hoping to get the X-Series Traction Filters out into the wild with the help of crowdfunding. As of right now, the Kickstarter has reached only 5% of its $50,000 goal, but for only popping up recently, it seems to be on a roll.
If you’re interested in maybe getting your hands on one of these models, the X1 is available for $25, the X2 UV will set you back $40, the X2 ND costs $60, the X3 UV is $80, and the X3 ND is the most expensive at $110.
