Schneider’s new diffusion filter line gives cinematographers the ability to give their subject’s skin a radiant, soft glow, while maintaining control over the contrast.
The Radiant Soft™ series expands Schneider’s diffusion filter line, bringing cinematographers and photographers the ability to give their subject’s skin a radiant, soft glow, while still having control over the contrast, as well as controlling the highlights with very little blooming effect.
From the Schneider MPTV Filter engineers:“Radiant Soft™ filters are the result of an intense study of how the internal component of the filter will affect the resulting image. We have formulated a very special laminate which utilizes geometric two-dimensional (planar) particles which are carefully classified to yield the most flattering result. The Radiant Soft™ filters have the effect of toning down skin imperfections while having a limited effect on contrast or highlights. Planar particle selection is the key to avoiding the undesired result of a diffusion filter that assaults contrast and over-blooms highlights.”
Engineers at Schneider had been asked time and time again to make a version of Tiffen’s Glimmer Glass, but never had the desire to recreate another company’s filter. Instead, they developed a solution to answer the Glimmer Glass’ faults.
Radiant Soft filters are available in strengths 1/4 – 1/2 – 1 – 2 – 3 in 4X5.65 size
