Schneider-Kreuznach hits the spot with launch of new Diopter Spot

Jun 30, 2023

Shortly after the launch of the Classic ND filter collection, Schneider-Kreuznach now introduces its brand-new spot diopters.

With a plain, polished area of either 25 or 50 mm in its centre, this special filter type provides sharp images in the middle and an out-of-focus zone towards the edges of the frame. This results in dreamy images with an in-focus centre that guides the eye of the viewer towards a designated area.

The effect is controllable and reaches from subtle to strong, depending on the diopter’s strength, the diameter of the plain area, and the used focal length. That is why Schneider-Kreuznach offers its spot diopters in six variants: Plain areas of 25 and 50 mm combined with diopter strengths of either +1/2, +1 or +2.

Given that they are produced as 138 mm drop-in filter cells, the spot diopters are usable in compatible matte boxes. Furthermore, the filters are made in Germany and will be available for sale from August 2023.
