An interview from the 2019 International Broadcasting Convention in Amsterdam with Piet Thiele of Schneider Kreuznach. Schneider Kreuznahc has been producing the highest quality optics on the market for over 90 years, offering solutions for large-format photography, photo enlarging, motion picture projection, optical filtration, and industrial applications. In this interview Piet talks with us about Schneider-Kreuznach introducing its first Full Spectrum Graduated Neutral Density filters (FSND).

Graduated neutral density filters are used in photography to darken an overly bright part of a scene, such as the sky. Even at high densities, Full Spectrum ND filters from Schneider-Kreuznach reduce the amount of light in the entire visible spectrum and the near infrared range so that there is no color cast in the image. Schneider-Kreuznach Full Spectrum Graduated NDs are designed so the shading of the filter follows the natural shading of the sky, allowing a more even exposure of the image. The ND coating is enclosed between two crystal-clear sheets of glass, protecting it against wear and tear of production. The entire FSND filter line is color matched and can be used in combination with each other.

The new Schneider-Kreuznach Graduated FSND Filters will be available in 4“x5.65” and 6.6“x6.6” sizes, soft and hard edges, and in 5 densities from ND 0.3 - 1.5. The grad ND Filters will be available as of January 2020. The list price starts at 549 US Dollar.
