Having optimized its production processes, Schneider-Kreuznach is now slashing the price of its TrueStreak, TrueStreak Confetti and TrueStreak Star filters by 16% to 56%. TrueStreak filters can be used to achieve creative effects. They are made of water-white glass as well as a special seal to reduce ghost images and are available in the standard sizes 4” x 4”, 4” x 5.65”, 6.6” x 6.6”.
Schneider-Kreuznach is presenting its Xenon FF-Prime and Cine Xenar III lens series and its MPTV filter line at the International Broadcast Conference (IBC) in Amsterdam. MPTV filter expert Ira Tiffen will explain how to achieve the best possible filter effects in his talks “Best of Both Worlds: Optical and Digital Filter Effects”. Dutch filmmaker Remco Hekker will describe, among others, how to produce a certain film look in his presentation “Cine lenses: More than getting a sharp image”.
