Schneider 4x4" Filter Kit - Schneider Optics has taken five of the most useful filters for DV and HDV cinematography and combined them into one convenient and affordable kit. This creativity booster is bound to become a valued cornerstone in every video professional's toolbox.
The kit includes one each of the following 4x4" filters:
4x4 ND .6 Solid
The ND .6 Solid Filter has a Neutral Density of 0.6 (2 stops), which reduces transmission by 75%. It can be used to control exposure or depth of field under various lighting conditions without affecting color or contrast.
ND .6 Soft Edge Graduated:
Century's ND .6 Soft Edge Graduated Filter employs a surface that is 50% clear and 50% with a neutral density of 0.6. The shift from clear to ND is achieved with a Soft Edge (SE) transition line. The ND .6 Soft Edge Graduated Filter balances exposure within a scene - for example, the exposure of sky and earth in a landscape, avoiding overexposed blank white skies.
The Century Polarizer reduces glare and unwanted reflections, saturates colors, deepens blue skies, improves contrast, and penetrates haze. Polarizers are commonly used to control glare on water and to allow the camera to see below the surface. They are also used to reduce glare on car bumpers and to control reflections on plate-glass windows.
Black Frost 1/2:
For subtle enhancement of a scene, the Black Frost 1/2 Diffusion Filter may be used to flare highlights, mute colors, and tone down contrast, without degrading image quality or black saturation.
The Century Skintone Enhancer Warming Filter adds warmth to skin tones and accentuates foliage and architecture while reducing excessive blue in outdoor open shade. The ideal tool for romantic close-ups, it can be effectively combined with Century softening filters.
