New Soft Filters Designed For HD

A range of soft filters has been developed to complement the most modern HD digital cameras.
Schneider Optics' new HD Classic Soft filters were created in response to requests for a high-quality softening filter to complement the new high-resolution, smaller chip HD cameras.
This new family of professional filtration tools is based on the company's Classic Soft filters for cine and broadcast cameras.
HD Classic Softs deliver the same subtle, effective softening performance for shooting in the 1/4", 1/3", 1/2" and 2/3" HD formats.
Schneider HD Classic Soft filters are designed specifically for work with today's leading HD digital cameras and are available in strengths of 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 1, and 2, and they produce the same rich In-Focus Diffusion as the standard Classic Soft series.
Each features a carefully calculated amount of precisely positioned Micro-Lenslets, which provide a precisely controlled soft image that is overlaid on a sharp, in-focus image, creating in-focus diffusion.
This effect blends small wrinkles and blemishes, while maintaining an overall sharp focus that conceals the fact that a softening filter has been used.
In the normal range of exposure, HD Classic Softs impart only a closely confined, very subtle glow to highlights.
If large amounts of overexposure exist in a scene - like a 'blown' window - they produce a stylish glow that keeps the scene's contrast under control, while adding a 'romantic' look.
What's more, these new filters are designed to allow shooting in all digital HD formats, without fear of artifacts.
Like all Schneider professional filters, the new HD Classic Soft line is manufactured from crystal clear, water white optical glass that is diamond cut, precision ground and polished to the most exacting tolerances, to ensure absolute uniformity and consistency.
