The filter market seems packed with options today, but apart from conventional products STC the Taiwanese manufacturer has an alternative concept. Announced today is a solution for Olympus 4/3rds system cameras with these ‘clip’ filters.

Options for other brands and formats also exist.

I have not used them, but the concept does offer a cost effective alternative to ‘over lens’ options. Although the practicalities of swapping them in and out in use, should I think be considered for your specific needs and approach. But the imaging quality sounds ‘top end’ in performance terms.

Here we go with the official details:

STC Launch Clip Filter Range for Olympus Cameras

Taiwanese masters of imaging innovation, STC, continues to expand its ground-breaking range of Clip Filters, revealing new products for Olympus cameras and Micro Four Thirds systems.

Extending the series of STC Clip Filters to users of Olympus’ M43 system opens up greater possibilities, not to mention savings, from the brand’s innovative technology and market-leading quality.

Launching originally for use with Sony full-frame sensor systems, the exciting range of Clip Filters is now starting to reach a broader pool of photographers than ever before.
