IR ND Filters available for Rent in Los Angeles, Burbank and Hollywood

Example of IRND filter vs ND filter using ARRI Alexa camera

As cameras get more and more sensitive to light, infrared (IR) pollution becomes a bigger issue as stronger neutral density filters are used to maintain exposure. IR pollution ends up changing the color rendition of the entire image and can result in some pronounced color shifts. (see the red shift in the ND example above.)  These color shifts can be next to impossible to get rid of once they are recorded into the digital image.  

 

Knowing that IR pollution is a problem, camera manufactures are building in some IR blocking into their sensor design (usually in the OLPF). Additionally, filter manufactures like Schneider Optics, are designing the next wave of neutral density filters to help address this problem. These filters are designed to work with all digital cameras and have been especially tested with the Red Epic and Arri Alexa.

 

We offer these filters for rent and recommend that they be used with our RED and ARRI cameras. Please note that these filters should not be combined like normal ND filters, the IR components do not stack.


We offer the following IR ND filters for rent:

These filters incorporate IR control filtration that is specifically designed for use with CCD or CMOS sensors. They filter out infrared light pollution causing color shifts that are commonly associated with high definition recording. By using these control filter you can achieve a wider color gamut and stronger color fidelity, especially noticeable in the shadows and darker regions of the image.

Schneider 4 x 5.65" MPTV Platinum IRND 0.3 (1 Stop) Filter

The Schneider 4 x 5.65" MPTV Platinum IRND 0.3 Filter is a combination of both an infrared control filter and a 0.3 (1 Stop) neutral density filter. There is a 0.3 density for darkening of the entire image in order to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required.
