PolarPro Helix VND Kit Summary

PolarPro has released a brand new magnetic Helix MagLock Filter System, which makes it quicker and easier to switch out lens filters for long exposures, stills and video recording. This PolarPro Helix VND Kit a brilliant starting point to join the system, as it includes a versatile 2-5 stop Helix Variable ND filter for diverse lighting conditions and two common size lens bases, which screw onto your camera lens.

Once the included 77mm Thread Base or 82mm Thread Base are attached, you simply add the VND filter, which magnetically attaches, then locks into place with a simple 1/4 turn. This unique attachment offers excellent security and ensures your lens filters stay attached even when recording run-and-gun content.

As well as the included VND there is a Helix 6-9 Stop VND Filter and numerous special effects or dual filters, like the PolarPro Helix 2-5 Stop VND Mist Filter and Helix BlueMorphic Filter. This comprehensive choice of custom lens filters ensures you can find the perfect one to match your creative goals and capture unique scenes with any lens/filter combination possible. What’s more, the included front and rear filter Defender caps ensure your glass is always protected, even if dropped during the toughest shoots.

PolarPro Helix VND Kit in More Detail

Designed for content creators and videographers, the Helix MagLock™ Filter System offers a revolutionary solution to the process of threading filters on and off lenses. With a unique magnetic + quarter-turn locking mechanism, this system from experts PolarPro, ensures a secure connection, with lightning-fast installation and removal of filters without compromising their stability during busy shooting sessions.


You can trust that these filters will remain firmly in place until you decide to remove them from your lens. The Helix MagLock™ Filter System comes with brass thread bases in various sizes, including optional 67mm Thread Plate and 72mm Thread Plate sizes, along with the 77mm and 82mm included in this Helix VND Kit. This provides versatile coverage for your entire lens collection.


Industry-Leading VND Colour Reproduction and Accuracy

The variable neutral density filter employs PolarPro’s most advanced glass technology to date, resulting in razor-sharp optics with zero colour shift in all lighting conditions. All of the Helix components are made with a brass construction for smooth connections and a rubber trim ring is integrated into each filter for ergonomic grip.


How to use the Helix MagLock Filter System

Firstly position the correctly sized base plate to your lens, by simply threading it on securely. To add a filter, align the tan Filter push-tabs with the tan lines on the Base Plate. Once aligned, the Filter will magnetise and snap to the Base Plate, and when seated, rotate the filter clockwise until it locks into place. That’s it, you’re ready to shoot knowing that your filters are securely locked in place.



Can Helix be used with other filter systems?

No, the Helix MagLock system is not interchangeable with other PolarPro or 3rd party systems.

Do Helix filters cause vignetting?

All Helix filters avoid vignetting down to 16mm focal widths when using one single filter. When stacking two filters, vignetting starts to occur below around 19mm.

What size lens threads does Helix fit?

Helix filters connect to your lenses via Base Plates, which are available in 67mm, 72mm, 77mm, and 82mm thread sizes.

Can multiple Helix filters be stacked?

Yes, Helix filters can be stacked and combined to create desired effects, with some vignetting at focal width below 20mm when stacking more than one filter.
