The Schneider Platinum IRND 1.8 Filter - 6x6 limits the light striking the camera’s CCD or CMOS imager to the visible spectrum, resulting in an extended color gamut without unwanted false colors. By carefully calculating the cutoff frequency in nanometers, Schneider has been able to produce a near-infrared cut filter that lets users get the most out of their camera sensor. Eliminating the near-infrared light leakage allows the camera to keep true color rendition in the blacks while maintaining high MTF (Modulation Transfer Function) of equipped lenses.

Schneider Platinum Series IRND filters are free of off-axis color shift, regardless of the focal length, and can be stacked without introducing reflections common with dichroic (i.e., displaying different colors when viewed from different directions) filters. Platinum IRNDs can also be used as a standard ND filter with all HD/UHD digital and film cameras.

NOTE: The 6x6 filter is available in 0.3, 0.6, 0.9, 1.2, 1.5, 1.8, and 2.1 densities. Higher densities can be achieved by stacking two or more filters. Contact your Rental Agent for details and availability.
