The Kase K8 holder system has an innovative solution to the problem of using circular polarisers with slot-in systems. Rather than being mounted as the last filter, making it large and allowing the possibility of light being reflected back into the lens. The Kase solution is to mount the polariser at the back of the system, allowing you to have up to three Neutral Density or Grad filters in front of the polariser.
The polariser is mounted to a geared lens adapter ring, that is then turned simply by using a gear on the holder when attached to your camera. To mount the polariser, it’s simply a case of placing it into the geared ring magnetically, removing the hassle of trying to screw a polariser into place.
- Magnetic mounted geared polariser
- Innovative lightweight design
- Robust alloy construction
- Simple to use in the Field
The Kase holder is precision CNC milled from the highest quality aviation grade aluminium with a mat anodised finish to reduce reflections. Both strong and lightweight, the holder uses a screw locking mechanism to prevent accidental removal.

To use your holder with other lens filter sizes up to 82mm, use step up rings. For example, to use the K8 system with a 58mm filter thread, you would just need a 58mm-82mm step up ring. Step up rings are standard design and available from many retail outlets.
The K8 holder system is designed to be used at up to a maximum 16mm on a full frame camera, for any lenses wider than this that take an up to 82mm thread then please ask us for advice 1st. There are some exceptions to this rule and if you are not sure about your lens please ask for help.
Exception 1: Sony FE 16-35mm f2.8 GM Lens – When using the CPL and Holder you will get a very small amount of vignetting at 16mm, it is gone by 16.5mm. If not using the CPL it is fine at 16mm.
Exception 2: Nikon NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f4 FX Lens – Both the holder and CPL will show at 14mm to 15mm, but are fine at 16mm.
