With 4x4 LowCon 2000, Schneider takes low contrast filters into the 21st Century.
Low Contrast filters have always been popular with Directors of Photography, because they mute the excessive contrast often found in nature, and can also desaturate a scene for artistic mood. The lighter values can be used to just take the high contrast "edge" off of today's best lenses.
Unlike similar filters, LowCon 2000 filters reduce black contrast without reducing resolution or muddying the image.
Schneider LowCon 2000 filters are available in 4" x 4", 4" x 5.650" (Panavision Size) and 6.6" x 6.6", in strengths of 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 1 and 2. They can be used in front of the longest lenses, singly or in combination with any other Schneider filters, to make combinations that provide the greatest range of image control. And, because they're designed and manufactured to the extremely high standards that Schneider is known for, any same-strength LowCon 2000 filter can be switched between A and B cameras, or lost filters can be replaced, with no discernable difference in scene effects.
