Schneider Optics 6.6 x 6.6" Black Frost 1/8 Water White Glass Filter
6.6x6.6 Black Frost Filters
These filters flare highlights, mute colors, and tone down contrast, while retaining rich blacks. This is a very useful combination of effects for 16mm and 35mm film, as well as for HD and standard video. These are primarily styling, or mood modifying filters. Depending on the grade chosen, they subtly enhance a scene without degrading the image quality or black saturation.
Black Frost enables cinematographers to capture blacker blacks than are possible with similar types of filters.
Black Frost filters are made using a remarkable, new diffusion technology, to achieve a unique image styling that can be applied freely, without fear of having scenes appear "heavy-handed."
Black Frost filters contain thousands of MicroPore particles, which introduce precise amounts of light diffraction while controlling stray light and flare. They are the result of proprietary Schneider design and manufacturing techniques that refine and calibrate the embedded diffusion particles in ways that have not been used before in filter manufacturing.
Black Frost filters provide an array of precisely sized particles that control the degree of diffusion in a predictable and repeatable manner.
By solving the problems of excessive light scatter and veiling glare associated with similar filters, Schneider Black Frost filters make possible a higher level of control and convenience.
As with all Schneider Optical Glass filters, Black Frost filters can be used in front of long lenses, singly, or in combination with any other Schneider filters, to make combinations that provide an even greater range of control.
Schneider Black Frost filters are available in 4" x 5.650" (Panavision Size) and 6.6" x 6.6", in strengths of 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 1 and 2.
6.6x6.6 Warm Black Frost Filters
When you want the Black Frost effect, plus a touch of added warmth, but don't have space for another filter, or just prefer not to stack filters, select the Warm Black Frost combination filter. It gives you every feature of the Schneider Black Frost and the 81-One in a single filter.
Warm Black Frost filters are available in 4" x 4", 4" x 5.650" (Panavision Size) and 6.6" x 6.6", in strengths of 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 1 and 2.
6.6x6.6 White Frost Filters
Schneider White Frost filters are primarily picture styling, or mood modifying tools. They subtly "flare" highlights and very slightly tone down contrast, while having no effect on image resolution or color reproduction.
These filters are very useful for adding a "halo" around light sources, "blown windows," or any other area of high exposure. They can also be used to reduce picture contrast by lowering white exposure, and can help you create a romantic or "period" look.
Schneider White Frost filters provide a very useful combination of effects for 16mm and 35mm film, as well as for HD and standard video.
Depending on the strength chosen, they enhance a scene, subtly or strongly, without reducing image resolution. If you prefer a softened, romantic image, a White Frost filter can be combined with a Schneider Classic Soft filter.
Schneider White Frost filters are available in 4" x 4", 4" x 5.650" (Panavision size) and 6.6" x 6.6", in White Frost strengths of 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 1 and 2. They can be used in front of the longest lenses, singly or in combination with any other Schneider filters, to make combinations that provide the greatest range of image control. And, because they are designed and manufactured to the extremely high standards that Schneider is known for, lost and damaged filters can be replaced with no discernable difference in scene effects. This high level of consistency and high repeatability is possible only with Schneider's superior optical technology.
