All Schneider Graduated Color filters
are part clear and part color. They
are designed to be used in professional
matte boxes, so that they are readily
positioned at the exact angle required
to create desired effects.
Graduated Color filters, designed
to provide a wide range of photographic
effects, work well with sky,
foliage and skin tones. They can be
combined with each other, or with
other filters, to provide a virtually
limitless range of breathtaking effects.
Schneider makes both soft-edge and
hard-edge Graduated Color filters.
Typically soft-edge filters are used
with wide to medium-angle lenses
because these lenses have greater
depth of field. Hard-edge filters are
preferred for use with telephoto
lenses or for bold transitions.
