Classic Soft Series

Schneider-Kreuznach has developed a subtle and effective softening filter that can be used freely without fear of compromising the high quality of contemporary lenses. In the normal range of exposure, this filter imparts only a closely confined, very subtle glow to highlights.

If large amounts of over-exposure exist in a scene, like a blown window, Classic Soft filters add a stylish glow that keeps the scene’s contrast under control, while adding a romantic look. 

The Secret of In-focus Diffusion
Hundreds of Micro-Lenslets arrayed within each Schneider-Kreuznach Classic Soft filter provide a precisely controlled soft image that is overlaid on a sharp, in-focus image. The number of Micro-Lenslets per square inch determines the image-blending effectiveness of each Classic Soft filter. This combination diffuses the fine details in the image while maintaining overall sharp focus.

Sandwiched between two pieces of optical glass are hundreds of precision Micro-Lenslets. During use, image light that passes through each Micro-Lenslet is only slightly refracted, while light passing between Micro-Lenslets is unaffected.
