Usually, Cross Screen filter is used in landscapes to show the sparkling surface of the water, sun rays coming through the leaves or in portraits to bring a shiny ascent to ear- rings and neckless. In video - to reproduce rhythmical mood of the scene.
Kenko REALRO R-CROSS SCREEN consists of two frames and a glass. One of the frames is rotatable ("R" in the name means Rotation). Star pattern effect is achieved by tiny grooves on the glass surface that makes light reflect and create a star patterns.
You can rotate the star pattern by rotating the front frame of the filter to achieve the desired effect. It is also should be noticed that the star pattern may differ and depends on the light source power, shooting distance or current f-number of the lens.
Photographs with dramatic ﬂares shining from bright light sources are quite common and popular. They look dramatic and make image more appealing to the eye. The effect itself can be achieved through small aperture, when diaphragm blades reflect the light and create rays.
However, it is not always possible to shoot with small aperture. Limited light volume, usage of tripod to prevent shaking and other circumstances that require long shutter speed makes everything complicated. In such cases, just one filter will greatly help to obtain the desirable effect.
Kenko REALPRO R-CROSS SCREEN was especially designed to create four-cross ﬂares on their pictures without long exposure. Position of the cross pattern can be controlled by the front filter frame.
Usually sensors of digital cameras are more sensitive than ﬁlm. That's why highlights can affect the image, creating unwanted effects due to light refraction in the lens. Filters, as they are also optical elements, can make the situation even worth. That is why filters need anti-reflective coating. Kenko REALPRO R-CROSS SCREEN adopts anti reflective multi coating to eliminate even small chance of unwanted ﬂares and ghosts in the image.
REALPRO R-CROSS SCREEN optical filters have double anti-reflective coating which is used to eliminate the slight chance of highlights and unwanted ghosting caused by reflections.
Use with any lens and with no loss of light. REALPRO R-CROSS SCREEN adopts ultra thin frame to avoid vignetting effect on wide and super wide angle lenses.
The frame of REALPRO R-CROSS SCREEN is equipped with knurling surface to prevent slipping, making attachment and removal easy and stress-free.
To reduce to minimum any unwanted reflections REALPRO R-CROSS SCREEN adopts black aluminum satin finish almite frame. Satin finish will increase friction between fingers and frame for quick operation and satin black frame will minimize internal reflections.
To reduce the internal light reflections off the edge of the filter glass Kenko uses the technology of black rimming. The outer rim of the glass plate is treated with a specific black ink prevent any leaking of the light.
REALPRO R-CROSS SCREEN is available in diameters from 49mm to 82mm.
|Every REALPRO filter comes with durable re-usable plastic case with UV-cut function. Since the polarization film is sensitive to UV light REALPRO case will lengthen life of the filter.|
