The Schneider 4x5.65" Classic Black Soft 1/2 Water White Glass Filter combines the benefits of Classic Soft with the subtle effects of Black Frost 1/8. It is ideal for close-ups, and can be used to facilitate a seamless transition in the look and continuity from scene to scene.
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.
Classic Black Soft filters are available in strengths of 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 1 and 2 - with 2 having the greatest effect
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
