This Gold flecked filter has the strongest effect on the image of any of the Soft filters. It smooths skin, halates the images and adds a subtle warm tone giving a vintage feel. The effect is subtle and complements skin tones even in cool colour temperature environments while retains contrast.
The Soft Series of filters is Ideally suited to high-resolution production, giving even and beautifully smooth images with controllable halation without sacrificing resolution or contrast.
Firecrest Cinema is a 3mm framed system offered in Panavision 4×5.65 size. It comes framed in a 4mm thick Aluminium frame which is compatible with all major matte boxes.
The thinner filter has many advantages including reduced weight but also the frame is specifically designed to reduce the long term wear on the edge of the filter when being taken in and out of spring secured filter trays.
The filter has a 0.5mm rebate on each side helping to protect the glass should the filter accidentally be put down flat against a surface.
The frame also aids in handling of the filter, keeping fingers away from the glass at all time saving on cleaning and smudging to the optics.
Care and maintenance
Cleaning the filter
It is recommended that the filter is dusted or cleaned with air to remove any hard contaminants before it is wiped with a lens cloth.
Due to the bonded nature of the filter, you can use any lens cleaning solution as the delicate coating is protected within the glass.
We do not recommend submerging the filter in water.
Please replace the filter in it provided microfibre pouch when not in use to protect the glass from scratching or accidental damage.
Handle the filter by its edges to prevent smudging from oil on your hand.

A bigger polariser giving you a wider view
With recent developments in optical design, it has become more common for lenses to have larger threads. To accommodate these advancements we have expanded our CPL (circular polarising filter) to 86mm. This means wider compatibility and better performance on a range of new wide-angle lenses. It also makes it compatible with a range of cinema lenses such as the Tokina 11-20MM T2.9.
The polariser can be fitted into either included rotating ring adapter, and becomes an integral part of the holder. The polariser is operated with an easy to use thumbscrew. This allows you to set your grads and then dial in the exact
polarising effect you want. Due to its free movement, this means you can leave the polarising filter (CPL) attached at all times and simply turn off the effect if not wanted. The construction of the filter also means you can use the CPL filter as an independent filter without the need of the holder.
More step rings, more flexibility.
For improved performance on an even wider range of lenses, the holder now ships with two rotating adapters as standard. These adapters allow the lens to sit closer to the filters helping with wide-angle photography. The kit
includes an 86mm - 86mm rotating adapter and a 86mm - 82mm adapter. For best performance on 77mm and smaller wide-angle lenses, it is recommended to use the included step rings from the 86-86mm rotating adapter.
