Schneider introduces HD Classic Soft filter family

Schneider Optics has unveiled its new HD Classic Soft family of filters, which was created to complement the new smaller-chip HD cameras.

This new family is based on the company's Classic Soft filters for cine and broadcast cameras. HD Classic Softs deliver the same subtle, effective softening performance for shooting in the 1/4in, 1/3in, 1/2in and 2/3in HD formats.

Schneider HD Classic Soft filters are designed specifically for today's HD cameras. Available in strengths of 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 1 and 2, the new filters produce the same In-Focus Diffusion as the standard Classic Soft series.

Each features a carefully calculated amount of precisely positioned Micro-Lenslets, which provide a precisely controlled soft image that is overlaid on a sharp, in-focus image, creating In-Focus Diffusion.
