Field-Testing Polarizing Filters
Ordinary Polarizer                    Schneider Polarizer
The most convincing (and accurate) test of the performance of a polarizer is achieved by overlapping two of them and shining a light through the pair. When one filter is turned and the other is held stationary, the density of the two filters should go from slightly gray to almost black. The more light that passes through the filters at maximum density, the weaker the polarizing effect.
Schneider True-Pol Linear Polarizing Filters

This is by far the most effective polarizer for motion picture and television cameras.

Having an extinction ratio of ER 374, the Schneider True-Pol is 12- times more effective than other polarizing filters, and is unmatched in its ability to:

  • Reduce glare and unwanted reflections
  • Saturate colors
  • Deepen blue skies
  • Improve contrast
  • Penetrate haze

True-Pol Polarizing filters enable you to achieve a level of optical performance previously unavailable to cinematographers.

The polarizing film in a Schneider True-Pol filter is laminated between two pieces of Schneiderメs crystal-clear, water-white optical glass. The filter is protected against edge-chipping and delamination by Schneiderメs unique Edge Seal, which also effectively reduces edge-reflections and flare. The absolute clarity of the glass combined with advanced polarizing material make True-Pol filters particularly effective on demanding scenes, as when shooting through windshields in rigged-cars. On such shots, Directors of Photography have found that Schneider True-Pol filters capture more color saturation, wider tonal range and much more contrast inside the car. Like all filters in the Schneider line, True-Pol filters are precision polished to the highest possible standards, meeting the most demanding specifications for optical flatness.
