MP8 - original Magic for Panasonic 8mm fisheye lens
The MP8 is an original Magic filter designed to fit into the filter holding slot on the rear on the Panasonic 8mm fisheye. This is the fisheye lens that works with all Micro Four Thirds system cameras from Panasonic and Olympus. The fisheye is obviously one of the most popular underwater lenses for this system. The approximate size of this filter is 22mm square and has the corners of the leading edge clipped so it slides easily into the back of the lens.
(Note colour of filter, above, is not necassarily accurate.)
As this filter is made from the original Magic formula the photographer must set the white balance manually (using preset or custom or manual white balance) every time they change depth by a few metres during the dive. This is easy to do and takes just a few seconds on most modern DSLRs. This filter is designed specifically to work with the white balance of a modern digital camera in blue to blue-green waters.
A single MP8 costs £22 and a pack of three filters costs £35.
Magic filters are designed for available light underwater photography. The original Magic works from the surface down to 15m (50ft), although many users are very happy with the results of this filter down to 20m (65ft). All our filters are optical quality polyester gels, manufactured for us, to our recipes, by one of the world's leading filter companies. All Magic filters are supplied with detailed instructions.
