    Schneider Neutral Density (ND) filters are designed to control exposure or depth of field under various lighting conditions without affecting color or contrast.

    These filters have numerous applications:
    • They permit the use of high-speed film (i.e. Kodak 5298) in bright lighting conditions 
    • They diminish distracting backgrounds in a scene by permitting the use of wider apertures to reduce depth of field as required to throw the background out of focus while maintaining focus on the subject 
    • They allow you to control the amount of light reaching the film without relying solely on the lens aperture 
    • Graduated Schneider ND filters enable you to evenly expose an unbalanced lighting situation 

    A common use for these filters is to allow the use of larger apertures, reducing depth of field, to allow selective focus and rack focus.

    Unlike other brands, Schneider Absorptive ND filters are a neutral gray, achieved with laboratory precision. Each filter is made of two pieces of Schneider's crystal-clear optical glass, which allows for the transmission of the absolute truest possible attenuated light. To prevent edge-chipping and delamination, these filters feature Schneider's unique Edge Seal.
