Revolva is available in PL and EF mount versions. Both have super precise and beautifully machined components. iData for PL and lens communication for EF are supported.

The design complements your RED® system elegantly, with robust and ergonomic engineering.

At the heart of the Revolva system, the quick change cartridges contain four best of class filters. ND values from clear to 2.1 and a range of diffusion options exist for maximum flexibility.

The filter wheel snaps magnetically between positions, locks positively, and clicks convincingly into the mount.

An ingenious backfocus compensation design ensures maximum clearance for a wide variety of lenses.

Backing up the smart optics and tough engineering, Revolva PL and EF feature complete camera firmware integration and captive mounting screws.

Ultra neutral FSND

Revolva ND cartridges use Full Spectrum neutral density filters.  This means that the visible and near-IR light is controlled and reduced to precisely the same degree.  As a result colour shifts otherwise caused by invisible IR pollution are intelligently minimised.
