Brand New Filter in the original box with pouch.
Made in USA. List is $365.00
The Schneider 4x5.65" DigiCon 1 filter is used for a "filmic look" when shooting with digital cameras. When used in front of the lens, it optically raises black levels while lowering highlights.
Note! Digicon filters are available in strengths of 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 1 and 2 - with 2 having the greatest effect
Combined with in camera gamma settings and/or post production, a higher dynamic range can be recorded
The filters are used in a matte box mounted to the camera and are geared toward digital shooting
The result is more detail in highlight and shadow areas with no loss of resolution or softening of the image
Filter produces no color shift and highlights are clean and halo-free
May be used on a 35mm cine camera to approximate the look of a lower contrast film stock

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.
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".
“Thanks to the DigiCon, when we do exteriors, the pavement can be hotter and the foliage plays nicely. It allows me to create a much filmic look. I no longer have to reign in the highlights & I can open up the blacks.
