About Item


Brand New Filter in the original box with pouch

List Price is $299.00

Many of today’s high definition sensors are designed to work best in a daylight-balanced lighting spectrum. Camera presets that compensate for tungsten light very often increase noise in color channels. This noise can become significant under difficult low-light conditions.

Schneider has developed its CTB filter line to balance color temperature from tungsten lighting toward daylight in incremental steps. Cinematographers have the control to correct as much (or as little) of the scene or exposure. This gives the advantage of color correcting while minimizing noise at low-light levels.

The CTB filter line has been designed to correspond to existing lighting color correction standards, offering a range of correction for most situations. Stop loss is 0.17 for the eighth, 0.24 for the quarter and 0.34 for the half.

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".

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.
