The Schneider Optics 4"x4" Neutral Density Attenuator Filter 1.2 is used for Cinematography. It has a Neutral Density of 1.2 (4 stops) and therefore reduces transmission by 94%. A common use for this filter is to allow the use of larger apertures, reducing depth of field, to allow selective focus and rack focus.

Neutral Density Filters Have Four Main Uses

  • To enable slow shutter speeds to be used, especially with high speed films, to record movement in subjects such as waterfalls, clouds, or cars
  • To decrease depth of field by allowing wider apertures to be used, which helps separate subjects from their background
  • To decrease the effective ISO of high speed film (above ISO 400) and allow it to be used outdoors in bright situations
  • To allow cine and video cameras (which have fixed shutter speeds) to film subjects such as snow, sand or other bright scenes which could cause overexposure

High-Quality Construction

  • Schneider Neutral Density Attenuator filters feature crystal clear, water-white optical glass, protected against edge-chipping and delamination by Schneider's unique Edge Seal, which also significantly reduces edge reflections and flare

Schneider Quality Control

  • Schneider filters are ground and polished to a precise flatness and plane parallelism
  • Because all Schneider filters are designed and manufactured with the highest possible degree of consistency, you can swap like filters mid-shoot with no discernible variation in color or effect

Neutral Density factors

  • ND.3 (exposure adjustment = 1 stop, reduces ISO by 1/2)
  • ND.6 (exposure adjustment = 2 stops, reduces ISO by 1/4)
  • ND.9 (exposure adjustment = 3 stops, reduces ISO by 1/8)
  • ND1.2 (exposure adjustment = 4 stops, reduces ISO by 1/16)
