The Schneider 4 x 5.65" Classic Soft 1/16 HD Filter is a soft, diffusion filter that provides a subtle glow to highlights and helps keep the overall contrast of a scene under control. This filter is also particularly useful for concealing wrinkles and blemishes, yet still maintaining overall sharpness for portraiture. Available in a range of diffusion strengths, the 1/16 provides a very light amount of diffusion for subtle blending and control of highlights. The HD Classic Soft filters are also designed to be one grade lighter than the older Classic Soft filters; the 1/16 will behave like a 1/32 Classic Soft filter.
This filter is designed especially for use with HD cameras and features a calculated number of Micro-Lenslets. These are carefully positioned and provide a soft image that is overlaid on a sharp, in-focus image; creating In-focus Diffusion. This filter is compatible with the Panavision filter holder.
