Schneider 68-885602 Overview

The Schneider 4 x 5.65" Essential Filter Kit for RED combines three neutral density filters and an infrared-cut filter; ideal for use with the RED camera system or other high definition video systems. These filters measure 4 x 5.65" / 101.6 x 143.5mm and are constructed from high quality Schott Water White glass.

Also included is a 4 x 5.65" four-slot filter pouch for protecting and carrying your filters.

0.9, 1.2, and 1.5 Solid Neutral Density Filters

This kit includes 3 different solid neutral density filters: 0.9, 1.2, and 1.5 which offer 3, 4, and 5 stops exposure reduction respectively. ND filters create a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. By slowing your exposure time or increasing your aperture, you are able to control depth of field, rack focus, and convey movement more easily. Neutral density filters do not affect the overall coloration of the image.

True-Cut IR 750 Filter

Most high-definition cameras have a high sensitivity to light in the IR spectrum, and though the IR light is not visible to the human eye, it can result in color shifts and prevent a camera's imager from capturing true blacks. As digital cinematographers use multi-stop neutral density filters to allow them to open their lens iris for more depth of field, IR light begins to dominate light from the visible spectrum, making its pollution more apparent.

The True-Cut IR 750 filter is designed to remove the IR spectrum from the light path, resulting in more vibrant colors and true blacks from both CCD and CMOS imagers. This filter blocks the IR light mere nanometers from the visible spectrum, eliminating IR pollution from the image.

This filter maintains a high MTF (modulation transfer function) in the visible spectrum and its coating meets or exceeds military standards for durability, thus is easily cleaned. The True-Cut IR 750 filter is manufactured from crystal clear, water white optical glass that is diamond cut, precision ground, and polished to exacting tolerances.

Great Filters

It's hard to find decent reviews or info on these Schneider filters. I bought them simply because they fit the budget and were designed specifically (I guess) for RED sensors. They make my images pop. I would definitely recommend these to any DP as I've had great success with mine in front of my vintage cooke glass on my Epic Dragon body.

Nicely package set of filters with a durable pouch.

Unbelievable Value

This packaged set gives you essentially two filters for free vs purchasing them individually resulting in major savings. If you are looking to purchase a full set of ND, get this set then fill in the 0.3 and 0.6 individually. It is recommended to use the IR filter when using 0.9 and up. And by the way, this is labeled essential kit for RED but is absolutely essential for any other digital camera format when you need to block more light to open the iris. Images looked very clean and if there was a color shift, I certainly couldn't see it so it would be extremely easy to tweak it in post if necessary.

question

I know it says for Red, but i have a Canon 5D Mark II with Canon CN-E lenses and I have a matte box that can hold 4x5.65 filters, will this work?
Asked by: Anonymous
If you have a matte box that can fit these filters, then yes, the Schneider Essential Filter Kit for RED will work, as this is designed for other HD video systems in addition to RED cameras.

Are these RHOdium filters?

Are these RHOdium filters?
Asked by: James
No, but I can say they work fantastically. I use a 3 stage matte box to have more options and this kit works wonders (especially for the price).

question

Does it matter what order you place these filters? Should you place the IR filter before the ND as light is coming into the lens?
Asked by: Alan
IR filter should always be closer to the lens.
