Schneider Optics unveils new diffusion filter for HD cameras
The Hollywood Black Magic is Schneider Optics latest professional diffusion filter for HD digital cameras.
Building on the HD Classic Soft filters with their Micro-lenslet design and the Black Frost filters using Black Micropore technology, the new line of Schneider diffusion filters combines the best attributes of both.
Hollywood Black Magic filters remove unsightly blemishes and wrinkles while providing a smooth transition in the highlights. These new filters are available in five strengths from one-eighth to two.
The shooter can select from a wide range of diffusion choices from subtly diminishing the "video edge" to visually removing years from a person. Pleasant softening of bright highlights helps control the exposure while maintaining rich blacks and colors.
