Schneider 4x5.65" Classic Soft 2 Filter
Brand New Filter in a box with pouch. List Price is $365.00
The Schneider 4x5.65" Classic Soft 2 Filter produces a classic Old-Hollywood close-up look, with image quality for current Hollywood needs. Would you like to achieve the same tonality as an old image of Cary Grant or Marlene Dietrich?
Hundreds of Micro-Lenslets arrayed within each Schneider Classic Soft filter provide a precisely controlled soft image that is overlaid on a sharp, in-focus image. This combination diffuses the image while maintaining overall sharp focus. Schneider calls this Schneider In-focus Diffusion. The number of Micro-Lenslets per square inch determines the image blending effectiveness of each Classic Soft filter.
Note! Classic Soft filters are available in strengths from 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 1, and 2-with 2 having the greatest effect
This filter blends small wrinkles and blemishes while maintaining overall sharp focus that conceals the fact that a softening filter was used
In the normal range of exposure, this filter imparts only a closely confined, very subtle glow to highlights; If large amounts of overexposure exist in a scene, like a "blown" window, Classic Soft filters add a stylish glow that keep the scene's contrast under control, while adding a romantic look.
Schneider has developed a subtle and effective softening filter that can be used freely without fear of compromising the high-quality of modern lenses.
As with all Schneider Optical Glass filters, Classic Soft filters are designed to be used in front of long lenses, singly or in combination with any other Schneider filters, to make filter combinations for an even greater range of creative control.
Designed and manufactured to the extremely high standards that Schneider is known for - same strength Classic Soft filters can be switched between A and B cameras, or lost filters can be replaced, with no discernable difference in scene effects.
Schneider Classic Soft filters are made possible by state-of-the-art optical technology and a proprietary Schneider manufacturing technique that produces a Micro-Lenslet array.
Schneider solid color 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 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.
