Schneider 68-083258 overview

  • 1Description

The Schneider 58mm Black Frost 1/2 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 for styling or mood-modifying.

Note: Black Frost filters are available in strengths from 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 1, and 2-with 2 having the greatest effect.

Image Quality

Depending on the grade chosen, Black Frosts subtly enhance a scene without degrading the image quality or black saturation
Black Frost enables cinematographers to capture blacker blacks than are possible with similar types of filters
Black Frost filters are made using a remarkable 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, Schneider Black Frost filters make possible a higher level of control and convenience

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

    Schneider 68-083258 reviews

    58mm Black Frost 1/2 Filter is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Schneider Black Frost 1/2 I use the filter on a video camera to take the video edge off a bit and by shooting 24p the video looks more filmatic than video like. It's a nice look. It doesn't change the picture quality of the video, just gives it a different ambiance. jerry
