The Tiffen Company adds a new special effects filter to their renowned line of optical filters. The Blue Streak filter is designed to render a blue light ray from a point light source, creating the classic look of an anamorphic lens. Rotation of the filter allows the user to adjust the angle and direction of the of the light ray streak to suit the desired composition or effect.
Like the rest of Tiffen’s Emmy & Academy Award-winning filters, the Blue Streaks are crafted in the USA with optical grade glass. To promote long life and image clarity, only Tiffen filters are manufactured using the exclusive Colorcore Technology® process that laminates the filter substrate between two parallel elements of optical glass, then grinds and polishes them to a precise tolerance of 1/10,000th of an inch flatness.
Tiffen Blue Streak filters come in a choice of 2mm or 3mm streak spacing. They are each available in standard sizes (4×4, 6.6×6.6, 4×5.65, 138mm) as well as rounds to fit the IOP rear filter system on the Angénieux Optimo Prime Series. Special sizes are available upon request.
