(March 25, 2015) Schneider Optics, will unveil a range of new products at the upcoming NAB convention and exhibition in Las Vegas opening April 12, in booth C6037. The newest member of the True Steak® family of top-of-the-line MPTV filters will be unveiled. When mounted in front of the shooting lens, Schneider Optics Confetti filters create mini-streaks that appear as a sparkle or fireworks effect.
Confetti’s are available in multi-color, blue, red, orange, green, yellow, pink, violet and gold in popular professional sizes. Designed especially for Leica® Summilux® Lenses, Schneider will show its new 92mm Thread-In MPTV Clear and ND Filters, engineered to minimize the possibility of vignetting and maintain the front diameter of the lens. The Clear and IRND Filters are High Efficiency Multi-Layer Anti-Reflection Coated to minimize flair and ghosts. Schneider-Kreuznach’s Xenon FF-Prime Lens series is rapidly gaining acclaim.
These primes are purpose built for digital cinematography with HDSLR and other cameras, providing 4K resolution and covering the full image circle usable on large sensor cameras. NAB visitors can see a sizzle reel displaying the five focal lengths in action. In addition, the Schneider Optics iPro Lens System of professional lenses is now compatible with Apple iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. The new soft touch case is designed and manufactured in collaboration with Element Cases, leading maker of smartphone action sport cases.
