Schneider 138 mm Black Frost 1/8 Filter






Stock Code: 68-083038List Price: 340.00


The Schneider 138mm Black Frost 1/8 Filter flares highlights, mutes colors, and tones 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. This filter is primarily for styling or mood-modifying.


Note! Black Frost filters are available in strengths from 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 1, and 2-with 2 having the greatest effect.


Image Quality

Depending on the grade chosen, Black Frosts 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 diffusion technology, to achieve a unique image styling that can be applied freely, without fear of having scenes appear "heavy-handed"
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

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

Depending on the grade chosen, they subtly enhance a scene without degrading the image quality or black saturation.

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."

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.

This filter is available in strengths of 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 1, and 2. These strengths achieve a subtle filmic type look to a heavy diffusion.




Schneider Optics has engineered a major improvement in motion picture and broadcast television image quality with the Schneider filter line. Diamond cut from crystal-clear, water-white optical glass, Schneider filters are ground and polished to a precise flatness and planeparallelism (the exact parallel relationship between the front and back filter surfaces that is so important to optical performance). Then, to ensure perfection, this is verified by a laser interferometer. Schneider filters are also checked with a densitometer for consistent density, and tested for proper light transmission with a spectrophotometer. 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. The unprecedented purity, color saturation and repeatability of Schneider filters virtually eliminate the need for lab color timing corrections caused by other filters. This puts more creative control where it belongs, in your hands.



 

Tiffen vs Schneider



"Both are made from the same optical-quality glass by Schott. Both are also the same thickness (4mm). The main difference between brands is that
Tiffen filters are constructed using a thin layer of gelatin material sandwiched in between two layers of optical glass and sealed together with some kind of glue. The layers can sometimes break apart and render the filter useless.

Another anamoly in the
Tiffen line is the "Clear" filter which is not made out of optical glass, but instead "Soda Lime" glass, which is the same stuff used for car windows. It has a green tint -- in other words, not "Clear" at all.

All
Schneider filters are constructed from solid optical glass (i.e. - Schott glass) with the filter material melted in the glass itself and hence are built for life. The edges of the filters are rounded off and smoother to the touch. They are simply better designed filters. Says a leading DoP of Hollywood "I have many of them and am completely satisfied. Can't say that about other brands I have tried. Buy right, cry once".
