Sony's line of E-Mount cameras are amazingly powerful little cameras, but they have two flaws. The lens mount is a two part construction, with the critical component that holds the lens in place made of plastic. This is why any lens you attach to an E mount camera is prone to wiggling, especially longer pro lenses. Many of the E-Mount cameras also leak light around the mount itself!
Fotodiox built the new TOUGH E-Mount LT in direct response to customers' requests for a solution that would eliminate the light leaks common among E-mounts, and still share the easy installation process of the original. 'The TOUGH E-Mount LT' modification kit. The LT version incorporates extra flanges in the adapter that reduce the camera’s light leaks to almost nil. In only 5 minutes, you can replace your camera’s two-piece NEX mount with the LT’s one-piece, all-metal mount (leaving your glass better protected and your images glare-free) and benefit from the LT's extra flanges, which completely eliminate the E-mount's problematic light leaks. All you need is a jewelers screwdriver (phillips) to remove and replace four little screws. We've created a video to show you how easy it is:
Once you have installed The TOUGH E-Mount LT, you can mount all E-Mount lenses and practically any sized pro lens on your Sony E-mount camera using one our full line of E-Mount lens adapters. With the powerful combination of our TOUGH E-Mount modification and our lens adapters, you can be confident of a solid and professional fit.
