Schneider Optics Launches Compact ND Kit for 114mm/CP.2 Lenses

Schneider Optics has introduced the Schneider Compact ND Kit for 114mm diameter lenses.
The neutral density filter kit provides a low profile clamp-on locking ring adapter that is designed to mount 4-1/2 inch filters included in the kit on camera lenses such as the Zeiss CP.2 and Canon Cinema EOS Primes.
The Compact ND Kit answers the specific need of cinematographers working with 114mm diameter lenses with no front threads, and for situations where using a regular mattebox to mount filters would cause too much weight, time to mount, or wind drag. Neutral Density filters are used to reduce the amount of light transmitted into the lens. Such filters are commonly used to allow the use of larger lens apertures, reducing depth of field to allow selective focus and rack focus.
Schneider’s Low Profile Clamp-on 114mm Sunshade (not included in the kit) can be mounted on the Compact ND Kit assembly to minimize stray light from causing unwanted image issues, such as lens flare.
The kit, available now, includes three genuine Schneider Neutral Density filters in strengths of 0.6 (2 stops), 0.9 (3 stops), and 1.2 (4 stops). List price is $925.
