SCHNEIDER Optics have announced the availability of their new 95mm Slim-Line Polarising Filter for use with Fujinon and Canon lenses.
The Schneider Slim-Line Polarising Filter is designed with a thin profile ring that prevents vignetting on wide-angle video lenses and can be directly attached to the Canon 20x and 21x lenses with the use of a new Schneider 95mm to 94mm stepdown ring, which provides a convenient and economical way for the universal 95mm filters to be attached to a less common 94mm thread.
Independent tests by a Canon service centre have proven that a Schneider Slim-Line Polariser can also be stacked with a standard 95mm (a clear UV, for example) on Canon 20x and 21x lenses, without causing mechanical vignetting with the Canon Sunshade.
Because mounting an additional filter in front of a Slim-Line Filter would defeat its purpose, Schneider Slim-Line Filters do not have threads on their outer face.
Like all Schneider filters, Slim-Line Polarising Filters are made of optical glass that is precision ground and polished to industry standards for plane parallelism. All are tested with a laser interferometer to ensure flatness and a perfect parallel relationship of both sides. As a result, Schneider filters produce identical effects with long and wide lenses, and with zoom lenses at all focal lengths.
Schneider Optics are designers and manufacturers of high quality photographic optics, including optical glass filters for motion picture and television production, motion picture projection lenses, large format camera lenses, enlarging lenses, loupes and black and white filters.
Through their wholly owned subsidiary, Century Precision Optics, Schneider also provide professional lenses and lens accessories used by filmmakers and videographers worldwide. These include periscopes, low-angle prisms, a broad range of video lens accessories and custom lens conversions. (GB)
