Streak Filters

The Schneider-Kreuznach Streak Filter are designed to create the effect of a scene or image that has been recorded with an anamorphic lens and then displayed using a complementary reverse projection lens.

The filter offers an exciting way to simulate the anamorphic streak effect with virtually any lens, anamorphic or not. Within the filter’s glass is a combination of fine line tubes whose action is limited to point light sources. Upon those light sources such as the sun, a light bulb or a candle long colored streaks emanate. This results in prominent, elongated streaks that are symmetric from each point light source to draw attention to a specific part of the frame, or to create a visually dramatic look. By rotating the filter orientation of flares can be influenced. A creative way to enhance night exteriors, highlight reflections off chrome surfaces, “wow” them with vibrant rock’n’roll illumination or achieve other stand-out imagery to liven the look with stunning vintage effects.
