Introducing the worlds first LED lens filter. Our specially formulated LED camera lens ideally balances the light output of popular LED lights, allowing you to take amazing photos and video inside your LED grow! Made to our specifications by Carl Zeiss Optics, housed in anodized aluminum and compatible with any camera fitted with a Cokin "P" filter holder (not included).
Cokin makes a P filter holder to fit most cameras and video cameras. Cokin "P" filter holders fit a huge number of cameras and video cameras. The holder consists of a lens adapter plate that comes in a variety of sizes to fit your specific lens diameter (options include 48, 49, 52, 55, 58, 62, 67, 72, 77, 82 mm), and the holder itself which holds the filter in plate. They sell for about $35 and are available from many photoshops, or try online from B&H Photo out of NY. Or try Cokin's website for details to determine if your camera is compatible.
Method Seven makes optics for gardeners
We've been working with grow lights for over 20 years. We've tolerated the discomfort. Some of us experience night-blindness, see spots get headaches and we know a few who have gone through retina replacement surgery. Not fun.
We've solved all these problems. We can all go back into the grow and start enjoying our plants, safely and comfortably. We've got you covered for any type of lighting. Try them or ask anyone who has. You've got to see to believe.
Method Seven offers two lines of grow glasses for HPS lighting environments. Method Seven Rendition HPS delivers "Perfect Color" for the world's ultimate grow experience in the intense yellow spectrum and harsh conditions of HPS lighting. They deliver absolutely the highest available optical clarity and ability to absorb infrared (heat). These are THE best lenses for the professional working extended hours under HPS or the passionate hobbyist who simply wants the best. The “plus” silver coating option makes our glass lens even better for working in high wattage environments or crossover use outside. Plus, they just look cool :-) Our patent pending formulation is manufactured with the highest quality German durable mineral glass to provide perfect color, perfect clarity, and 100% UV protection.
Our synthetic lenses are manufactured for Method Seven by Carl Zeiss using Method Seven's unique lens technology and provide optimized color under HPS. And they provide exceptional clarity due to the high optical standards obtained by Carl Zeiss. They are very lightweight and unbreakable. We recommend our synthetic lenses to anyone with one grow light or who spends minimal time working under lights. The value of our synthetic lens makes these products great for outfitting larger crews who are working under lights but may not be making critical plant health and harvest decisions. Available either uncoated or silver coated (combining your indoor grow and outdoor lifestyle), 100% UV protection, and great value.
Both glasses provide benefits that clearly exceed the performance of all competitors.
Sunglasses are not for grow rooms!
Grow rooms have lots of light, but it's not broad spectrum. Great for plants, but not your eyes. The rods and cones in your eyes need broad spectrum light to focus, see shapes, notice movement and see color. When you wear sunglasses, you make this worse - you darken all the light, so you squint less, but you still can't see color and it's even more difficult to focus. Things look muddy. Your brain struggles to compensate. That's where fatigue and headaches come from.
Method Seven Optics filter the harsh lighting and bring balanced color to your eyes. It's like working in full daylight, naturally. you can see foliage properly, spot pests and deficiencies early and easily. your brain relaxes. No headaches, no strain, and no long-term damage. Our glasses even eliminate the strobe effect produced by most HPS ballasts. And there's no adjustment period when you walk out of the grow room. With Method Seven, you can work with accuracy, comfort and safety.
See. Believe. Your eyes are worth it!
Cheap lenses distort light as it enters your eye. Like seeing double, or slightly cross-eyed, or just hazy. Focus and clarity are compromised. You may not notice it right away, but then again you can live for several minutes with a plastic bag stretched over your head. Doesn't mean you should do it.
Method Seven Rendition lenses are made in Germany from glass, melted in six ton batches to achieve perfect clarity with your Patent Pending formulation. They are asymmetrically ground and polished and built into custom frames in Italy. This is perfection.
Our distortion free polycarbonate and nylon lens are made by Carl Zeiss. The absolute best synthetic lenses in the world. Your eyes are worth it!
Custom RX available for all spectrums.
HID lights are serious!
UV damage is cumulative, like a small sun-burn on your cornea and retina with each exposure. No one talks about UVC from the Sun because it's filtered by the upper atmosphere. Surprise! It's the most dangerous UV and is produced by most HID lights. Method Seven lenses protect from ALL harmful UVA/B/C rays. Don't risk it. You think going to the dentist is expensive and painful, try a cornea replacement. PS: for extended hours in a grow room, a visor and sunblock is also a good idea...
Method Seven technology blends incredible color balancing for each of the standard grow lighting spectrums (HPS, Metal Halide, LED, Sun) with exceptionally high quality lenses that provide the best in optical clarity. Additionally, Method Seven protection removes all harmful UV A/B rays like most others but additionally also removes harmful UVC rays which are filtered out of sunlight by the upper atmosphere, but pose a significant hazard under grow lighting.
Many growers suffer through unnecessary stress, fatigue, decreased yield, and even permanent eye injury from using sunglasses or cheaper knock-off grow room glasses. At best, even premium sunglasses attenuate (decrease) excess light in the grow room but do a horrible job of color balancing in indoor lighting environments, leading not only to discomfort and stress, but also to poor viewing and maintenance of your plants. Cheap grow room glasses do an okay job of color balancing, but typically have very poor optical quality and inadequate protection from UVC rays.
