Schneider Hollywood Black Magic Reviews

Take the edge off!

Makes a noticeable, slightly softer edge to 4k image without really affecting the contrast. Quite nice, really. I did, however, experience OCCASIONAL ghost reflections of bright spots in certain setups that I have not as yet determined the cause; the mattebox was set up normally, so I will update if I can figure out if it's operator error or an aspect of the glass.

I got this because the 1/8th was sold out. At first I was nervous that it would be too noticeable but it was just right. A client would never look at a shot with this and realize that there was something added, however it really adds a feel to the shots that is organic and mellow. I really recommend this if you are using DSLR lenses for video, it really takes the sharp edges off.

Takes the edge off

This is a great addition to my RED Dragon. It's further extends the highlight dynamic range by the additional high light roll off. Additionally It beautifully takes the digital edge off of the image.
