Schneider 68-086259 Overview

The Schneider 5x5" White Frost 1/2 Water White Glass Filter is primarily for picture styling or mood modifying. It subtly "flares" highlights and very slightly tones down contrast, while having no effect on image resolution or color reproduction.

White Frost filters are available in strengths of 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 1 and 2 - with 2 having the greatest effect
It can also be used to reduce picture contrast by lowering white exposure, and can help you create a romantic or "period" look
Depending on the strength chosen, it enhances a scene, subtly or strongly, without reducing image resolution; If you prefer a softened, romantic image, a White Frost filter can be combined with a Schneider Classic Soft filter
Schneider White Frost filters provide a very useful combination of effects for 16mm and 35mm film, as well as for HD and standard video
