This kit consists of a 4x4" Neutral Density (ND) .9, Black Frost and Circular Tru Polarizing filter.

Neutral Density filters have several uses and offer the possibility to achieve otherwise unachievable results. ND filters appear grey and reduce the amount of light reaching the film. They have no effect on color balance. They have four main uses: 1) To enable slow shutter speeds to be used, especially with high speed films, to record movement in subjects such as waterfalls, clouds, or cars. 2) To decrease depth of field by allowing wider apertures to be used, which helps separate subjects from their background. 3) To decrease the effective ISO of high speed film (above ISO 400) and allow it to be used outdoors in bright situations. 4) 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.

Black Frost Filters flare highlights, mute colors and tone 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. These are primarily styling or mood modifying filters. Depending on the grade chosen, they subtly enhance a scene without degrading the image quality or black saturation.

Schneider offers a circular True-Pol Polarizing filter for cameras which use polarizing elements in the beam splitters of the viewing system, such as ARRI 435 and the Movie-Cam Compact. To ensure correct placement on the lens barrel, Schneider clearly marks the outer surface on all Tru-Polarizing filters.

4x4" Filter Kit (Consists of Neutral Density (ND) .9, Black Frost 1/2 and Circular Tru-Polarizing Filters) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great starter set! I did a lot of research before buying these and after pulling the trigger and testing them out, I'm super happy.The Circular True Polarizer is a must have, and same goes for the ND.9. Combined you get just over an ND 1.2 so they're perfect for outdoor shoots (and you have the benefits of a polarizer!). The next investment for me is an ND 1.8 but for now these two are more than enough. As for the 1/2 Frost.. I was really surprised they added this to the set. Most people roll with 1/8 or 1/4 Black Pro Mists, but I said hey, these three combined are cheaper than buying two of these separately, so at least I'll be getting something extra to play with. And after running some tests with the Frost I fell in love with it. It's very similar to a Pro Mist but there isn't much of a crazy glow like the pro mists have. It seems like the falloff of the glow is much longer and softer than a pro mist. Also It brings your blacks up just a tad and adds a nice film look to the image. The best benefit is it evens out skin enough to reduce hard wrinkles and blemishes. Not entirely, but enough to make your actors look better, definitely.Schneider makes great filters just like Lee, plus they're a tiny bit more affordable. And you really can't compromise for cheap resin or polyester filters. Glass filters are a super smart investment so it's definitely worth fishing out $ + for glass filters.That being said, I'm really really happy with this set and I couldn't recommend anything else to start off with. This is really a solid buy. Also, they come with a nice filter pouch that holds up to 5 filters!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good kit in practical case Good set of high quality, well finished filters in a four slot case. I have already filled the last slot. Might have been nice to have a small pocket for a cleaning cloth though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heavy, but excellent quality A litte bit heavy. Lee filter 4mm slides cannot hold it; it keeps falling. So I tape with 4mm tape on both side to make it tight. Quality is way better than lee resin filters which get scratch right at the day one. I think it is a good investment. Tru-Polarizing is just ok. I like Singh-Ray gold-n-blue better.
