I was a big fan of the Soft F/X filters, made by Tiffen. They seemed to have been discontinued and these Schneider Hollywood Black Magic are a natural successor for me. This filter is great to eliminate very fine lines WITHOUT effecting the overall sharpness. They also add a very subtle glow in the highlights, so it's a little bit of magic dust sprinkled on your image.

Great filter

The 1/8 Strength Hollywood Black Magic Filter is the foundation to any good kit. (1/8th strengths are the building blocks to any filter, with the exception to Radiant Soft Series filters - there you want to start at a "1" and work your way up). This 1/8th Hollywood Black Mist (HBM) filter is a rockstar. My other filters talk about it when I put it to bed and close the latches on my filter case. Every cinematographer that owns their own filters should have this filter in their kit. Don't mess around and chew the eraser of your pencil while thinking about cheaper brands that offer something similar. Clients and directors know the Schneider brand and you should too. With that said, get your life together and add this to your collection. If you really want to go nuts, get the 1/8th & the 1/4 strength filter. I personally have the previously mentioned strengths AND the 1/2. Between you and me, the 1/8th filter is usually always in my matte box and I don't think I've ever used the 1/2 HBM, but hey, I have the option. www.powersfilms.com

Wherever I film, HBM filters are always with me. Excellent choice for taking off that digital edge.

question

The image you show for 4X5.65 looks like 4X4 since it is a square. Is 4X5.65 coming for sure if I order?
Asked by: Anonymous
I agree that the image looks square, but I can assure you the filter we will send you is 4x5.65 I cross referenced the Mfr# with Schneider to make sure.
