Schneider's 37mm Black Frost 1 Filter flares highlights, mutes colors, and tones down contrast, while retaining rich blacks. This is a very useful combination of effects for 16mm and 35mm film, as well as for HD and standard video. This filter is primarily a styling, or mood modifying filter. Depending on the grade chosen, it subtly enhances a scene without degrading the image quality or black saturation. This filter enables cinematographers to capture blacker blacks than are possible with similar types of filters.
This filter is made using a remarkable, new diffusion technology, to achieve a unique image styling that can be applied freely, without fear of having scenes appear "heavy-handed."
By solving the problems of excessive light scatter and veiling glare associated with similar filters, this filter makes a higher level of control and convenience possible.
