The Schneider 77mm Solid Color Coral 1 Filter is considered to be both a color-correction and color-effects filter. Schneider Coral Filters are used to warm cool lighting situations such as overcast days and scenes in open shade.
Different strengths of Schneider Coral Filters can be used during filming to achieve the same degree of apparent warmth under different light conditions. This makes them particularly useful for maintaining a consistent color balance throughout an entire day of shooting, or to create a sunset or dawn effect during the day.
Schneider Coral Filters can be used to under-correct a scene in order to create an excessively blue look for added drama, and can also be used as warming filters to create other dramatic effects. Cinematographers who own a complete set of Schneider Coral Filters have the ability to control just about any outdoor lighting situation.
Note! Schneider Solid Coral Filters are available in grades of 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 1 and 2 with 2 having the greatest effect
- Changing the specific color in a scene to create a desired special effect
- Enhancing the existing color or creating subtle color drama
- Creating more balanced exposure in uneven lighting conditions
- Cinematographers who own a complete set of Schneider Coral filters have the ability to control just about any outdoor lighting situation
- Schneider solid color filters feature crystal clear, water-white optical glass, protected against edge-chipping and delamination by Schneider's unique Edge Seal, which also significantly reduces edge reflections and flare
Schneider Quality Control
- Schneider filters are ground and polished to a precise flatness and plane parallelism
- Because all Schneider filters are designed and manufactured with the highest possible degree of consistency, you can swap like filters mid-shoot with no discernible variation in color or effect; this unprecedented level of consistency enables Directors of Photography to shoot with multiple cameras and replace lost or damaged filters during production with absolutely no visible change in the warming effect
