News Release Nikon AF-3/AF-4

Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce new AF-3 and AF-4 Gelatin Filter Holders for use of gelatin filters, especially larger ones, with virtually any Nikkor lens.

A photographer simply has to mount the holder to an adapter attached to the lens, insert the filter into a slot, and lock the filter stopper. The Nikon gelatin filter holders accommodate gelatin or glass filters up to about 2mm thick. The AF-3 can be used with 3-inch square gelatin filters and Nikkor lenses having an attachment size of 52/62/67/72/77mm. The AF-4 can be used with 4-inch square gelatin filters and Nikkor lenses having an attachment size of 52/62/67/72/77/82/95mm.

Adapters having an attachment size of 52/62/67/72/77mm for the AF-3 and 52/62/67/72/77/82/95mm for the AF-4 are optionally available. The 67/95mm adapters are used for large-and medium-size lenses. The optional UR-4 58-62mm Filter Adapter Ring is for lenses having a 58mm attachment size.

Nikon also offers two dedicated hoods--the HN-36 for the AF-3 and the HN-37 for the AF-4--as available options. Several hoods of equal diameter can be stacked, depending on the focal length of the lens in use.

As new additions to a world-renowned line of photographic accessories, the AF-3 and AF-4 Gelatin Filter Holders extend Nikonís already comprehensive capabilities to make photography more creative without sacrificing convenience.

Specifications and equipment are subject to change without any notice or obligation on the part of the manufacturer.
