The Redrock microFilter Set is useful when you shoot outdoors. For the nature shooter, these filters are a necessity and should be a part of your gear bag.

Circular Polarizing Filter
Light rays which are reflected become polarized. Polarizing filters are used to select which light rays enter your camera lens. They can remove unwanted reflections from non-metallic surfaces such as water or glass and also saturate colors providing better contrast.

The effect can be seen through the viewfinder and changed by rotating the filter. The filter factor varies according to how the filter is rotated and its orientation to the sun.

Neutral Density Filter
Neutral Density filters have several uses and offer the possibility to achieve otherwise unachievable results. They enable the shooter to adjust exposure without affecting color balance. ND filters appear gray and reduce the amount of light reaching the film.

Determining which neutral density filter yields ideal results for any given lighting situation takes knowledge, experience and a collection of such filters. Speaking generally, the 2-stop value (ND 0.6) effectively compensates average situations.

Graduated Neutral Density Filter
This filter enables the shooter to adjust exposure without affecting color balance. Neutral density filters are available in 1, 2, 3, or 4 stops to suit individual situations.

Often it is necessary or desirable to balance the light intensity in one part of a scene with another. This is especially true in situations where you don't have total light control, as in bright contrasty landscapes. Exposing for the foreground will produce a washed-out, over-exposed sky while exposing for the sky will leave the foreground dark and under-exposed. This filter enables cloud detail to be kept correctly exposed in the picture.

Determining which graduated neutral density filter yields ideal results for any given lighting situation takes knowledge, experience and a collection of such filters. Choose the filter strength which adjusts the lighting to stay within the exposure latitude (greatest difference between bright/dark values) which still shows details in both of the digital or film medium in use.

Speaking generally, the 2-stop value (ND 0.6 - the filter's clear portion allows 4x more light to pass vs. darkest portion) effectively compensates average bright sky-to-foreground situations, and the soft transition is applicable more often to a scene than the hard transition

Combined with the rotating and positioning filter trays in the microMatteBox, the graduation can be rotated and moved to match the horizon line.

Circular Polarizers

This filter eliminates ultraviolet rays to remove haze from outdoor shots as well as polarizing the light to remove reflections, and increase color saturation, without affecting the overall color balance

Neutral Density Filters Have Four Main Uses

To enable slow shutter speeds to be used, especially with high speed films, to record movement in subjects such as waterfalls, clouds, or cars
To decrease depth of field by allowing wider apertures to be used, which helps separate subjects from their background
To decrease the effective ISO of high speed film (above ISO 400) and allow it to be used outdoors in bright situation
To allow cine and video cameras (which have fixed shutter speeds) to film subjects such as snow, sand or other bright scenes which could cause overexposure

Neutral Density Factors

ND.3 (exposure adjustment = 1 stop, reduces ISO 1/2)
ND.6 (exposure adjustment = 2 stops, reduces ISO 1/4)
ND.9 (exposure adjustment = 3 stops, reduces ISO 1/8)

      I have the Redrock Micro Matte Box and finally I have these beautiful filters. They are a great compliment when shooting outdoors. The Neutral Density filter truely helped to change my Depth of Field when shooting outdoors as well.

      Greate Filter Set at a reasonable price. Each Filter has its own case also. But I purchased as Arri Filter Pouch that worked great.

      We purchased the complete RedRock Micro bundle which includes the cinema bundle but no filters for the matte box. So we purchased the filter set and yes they are of nice quality as is all of the other RedRock Micro items we purchased but I am not sure they are worth nearly $500....seriously.

        Comments about Redrock Micro microFilter Set (4 x 5.65"):

        It would help if Redrock produced some degree of instruction on how to use them for users who are new to using a matte box; i.e. does it matter which side faces the lens? should they be mounted in any specific order in a multi-stage setup or does it matter?

                    I gave this five stars because it does what I expect it to do.

                    I use this for video with a redrock mat box in exterior shoots to reduce depth of field.

                    It is higher quality than just a circular ND filter, more expensive and cumbersome, but allows lens changes without screwing on and off the filters. They can be rotated in the mat box as well. Larger than 4 x 4.

                    Little tough to keep them finger print free.

                      I'm using these with my OConnor O-Box.

                      Pros: Cost. Quality.

                      Cons: None yet.

                      The filters come wrapped in paper inside of a nice padded velcro pouch. I'm not too sure if they need to be stored in the paper/whether or not they will get scratched over time in the pouch alone.
