Schneider-Kreuznach Announces True-Streak® Rainbow Filter

Schneider-Kreuznach Announces True-Streak® Rainbow Filter

Filter-maker Schneider Kreuznach introduces a unique new filter for creative in-camera effects “that merge eight single colors to seamlessly flow from one to the next, creating a beautiful effect reminiscent of the multi-color flares on uncoated lenses.”

When placed in front of the lens, these filters allow the lens, anamorphic or not, to simulate the streak effect, displaying eight brilliant colors.

The True-Streak Rainbow filter incorporates proprietary techniques that merge eight single colors to seamlessly flow from one to the next, creating a beautiful effect reminiscent of the multi-color flares on uncoated lenses. Depending on the lighting, the effect can make this filter go from subtle beauty to a dramatic, bold streak.

Cinematographer Adam Beck explains, “The beautiful transition of colors within the flare gives the image another layer of complexity to my shots. It’s a uniquely creative tool that I want to have in my arsenal, allowing me greater control over the image in the camera.”

The 4×5.65 size will begin shipping mid-March. Other sizes are available by special order.

Due to the popularity of True-Streak® filters that mimic dramatic anamorphic-style optical streaks, acclaimed lens and filter-maker Schneider Kreuznach introduces a unique new version for creative in-camera effects.

Like the individually colored True-Streak filters (in blue, red, yellow, orange, green, violet, pink, gold and clear), Rainbow Streaks are made with a colored interlayer sandwiched and sealed between two sheets of crystal-clear SCHOTT water-white glass to maintain consistency and durability.
