Schneider-Kreuznach has just introduced two new filter ranges – the True-Net Filter, True-Streak Rainbow and True-Streak Gold filters. The True Net range is a much sought after diffusion filter. The True-Streak Rainbow filters creates a beautiful effect reminiscent of the multi-colour flares on uncoated lenses.
Schneider-Kreuznach Announces True-Net Filters and True-Streak® Rainbow and Gold Filters
Schneider-Kreuznach, known for its top of the line lens filters and lenses, is pleased to introduce two new filter ranges – the True-Net Filter, True-Streak® Rainbow and True-Streak® Gold filters.
True Net Filters:
The True Net range is a much sought after diffusion filter. Finally Schneider’s engineering team has found the secret to recreating that time-honored, old silk stocking diffusion look resourceful cinematographers have been creating for decades. For the first time, the respected trick is as easy as slipping on a front of the lens filter. Schneider’s new True-Nets offers a choice of seven different versions that are simple to install and provide consistent results.
After extensive research, Schneider developed a technique to sandwich hosiery made on the same knitting machines as in the 1950s between their hallmark crystal clear water-white optical glass. Like the company’s other professional cine filters, they are laminated, and protected from edge chipping with Schneider’s unique Edge Seal, which also reduces edge reflection an d edge flare.
The Series includes seven varieties. True-Net Blacks come in 3 densities, from subtle to heavy, to provide a lush old-Hollywood feel that can look romantic, elegant, or seductive. True-Net Beige, available in 2 densities, can give a warm and dreamy 1960s to ‘70s effect. The two True-Net Gray filters portray a more muted natural feel that retains pleasing contrast.
After testing the filters for his upcoming project, cinematographer George Mooradian, ASC explained, “I held up the first net to my eye and it evoked so much beauty and romance, I felt I was in a European film. It’s a beautiful, vintage feel that wipes out the pristine, clean, sterile look of the modern digital cameras and lenses.”
The True-Net Filter Series is currently available in 4“x5.65“ size. RRP per filter is £481.32. Other sizes can be made to order.
True-Streak® Rainbow Filters/ True-Streak® Gold Filters:
Incorporating proprietary techniques that merage eight single colours to seamlessly flow from one to the next, the new True-Streak® Rainbow filters creates a beautiful effect reminiscent of the multi-colour flares on uncoated lenses. Depending on the lighting, the effect can make this filter go from subtle beauty to a dramatic, bold streak.
“The beautiful transition of colours within the flare gives the image another later of complexity to my shot.“ Explains cinematographer Adam Beck. “It’s a uniquely creative tools that I want to have in my arsenal, allowing me greater control over the image in the camera.“
The 4“x5.65“ size has an RRP of £565.71. Other sizes can be made to order.
The True-Streak® Gold filters are available in intensities of 1mm, 2mm, 3mm and 4mm. They allow the lens, anamorphic or not, to simulate the popular streak look in a vivid deep yellow tone and can create an effect from subtle to dramatic depending on the strength chosen.
Just like the individually coloured True-Streak® filters (in blue, red, yellow, orange, green, violet, pink, gold and clear), Rainbow and Gold Streaks are made with a coloured, interlayer sandwich and sealed between two sheets of crystal-clear Schott water-white glass to maintain consistency and durability.
The 4“x5.65“ size has an RRP of £468.13. Other sizes can be made to order.
