Cine filters


How to tell your stories most effectively?

It's very simple, by using cine filters from  Schneider-Kreuznach. You are not convinced? Well, that's no problem. Here are the three most important reasons for using cine filters for your jobs.

1. The greatest latitude for creative opportunities comes from having the real world as your  source. With the real world you have infinite potential to control the image, as you have so much more information available than you will ever have later. If you haven’t gotten it right in
camera, it may be impossible to resurrect it in post.

2. It gives you more control over the final image. All too often, the cinematographer has moved on to the next production and isn’t involved in the final edit. This combination means others are often in a position to alter the look in ways that may not adhere to the original vision. Putting optical filter effects into the mix means your vision will be that much more likely to make it into the final result.

3. It saves you time and money. Finally, a basic feature of filters is that once used, your job of
creating the effect is done. Filters provide the look you want in-camera without the need to spend additional resources in post, often for considerable time and cost savings. When looked at this way, there isn’t much else that so effectively combines ease of use with the powerful ability to impart the greatest impact to your images as the simple use of camera filters.



TIP: How to Prolong the Life of your Filters 

Filters, like all crafted optics, are susceptible not only to breakage, but to premature aging caused by environmental factors. Most filters are made up of several layers of materials consisting of glass, dyes, optical cements, chemical compounds, particles etc. Even with protective measures employed in all Schneider formulations, there are many factors that can still affect the longevity of the filter: moisture (prolonged exposure to humidity), excessive heat and excessive light are the most common environmental causes that can affect the filter’s chemistry over time.

To protect your filters and keep them in great working condition for a long time (along with the rest of your camera gear) we recommend making sure to keep the filters stored in a dark, cool, and dry place when not in use. The use of filter pouches or specialized cases will also keep your filters safe from breakage when not in use. If you are in a humid environment, the addition of fresh silica gel packs or a dehumidifier in the room they are stored is also highly recommended. Protecting your filters as you would your camera lenses will ensure many years of use of your Schneider-Kreuznach filters. Every Schneider-Kreuznach cine filter is thoroughly inspected before final packaging to ensure only the highest quality filters going out into the market.
