Schneider-Kreuznach Releases Slim, Light, Advanced Variable ND Filter
Added on 5/26/2020
Schneider-Kreuznach is pleased to announce the True-Match Vari-ND® MKII, the company’s most neutral, extensive, and sophisticated variable ND (VND) filter to date. The Schneider True-Match Vari-ND® MKII features a rotating ring for precise light control from ND 0.45 to ND 3.45 (1.5 to 11.5 stops) and will be available in 77mm and 82mm filter sizes at launch. The variable neutral density effect is achieved by stacking highly neutral grey polarizing filters within a filter cell and rotating them to block the desired amount of light. Despite its double-frame structure, the Schneider True-Match Vari-ND® MKII employs a slim profile, just 5.9mm, to prevent vignetting. With 1.5 to 11.5 stops of light blocking power, still photographers and filmmakers can minimize gear by carrying the Schneider True-Match Vari-ND® MKII with them on every shoot. Schneider-Kreuznach, with its subsidiary Schneider Optics Inc. is a world market leader in manufacturing lenses and optical filters for technology and entertainment companies. The Schneider True-Match Vari-ND® MKII is designed for professional camera use, competitively priced and the next evolution in variable neutral density filters.
