Optical Low Pass Filter for Blackmagic Studio Camera 6K Pro
+ Moiré and aliasing filtration + IR cut
+ Installation has never been easier
+ Shim, tools and video for installation included
Aliasing and moiré are common issues with digital imaging. To prevent it from occurring most digital camera’s (including Arri, Sony and Canon camera’s) have a built in Optical Low Pass Filter (OLPF). The original IR absorption filter of the Blackmagic Studio Camera 6K Pro does not have an OLPF, occasionally resulting in disturbing moiré and aliasing in the image.
Blackmagic made it easy to replace their filter with the Rawlite OLPF. The first step is to remove the turret (matte black cilinder inside the mount). The turret is held in place by three screws. The second step is to loosen three screws of the original filter, so it can be taken out and replaced by the Rawlite OLPF.
The Rawlite OLPF for the Blackmagic Studio Camera 6K Pro is specifically designed for its sensor: preventing moiré while preserving detail. The assembly has been designed to preserve the same flange depth (distance between the rear of the lens and IR-filter). By doing so it’s assured that all lenses and adapters that work with the original filter, will work with the Rawlite OLPF. The built-in ND filters can be used like before installation of the Rawlite OLPF.
A hot mirror coating is added to cut infrared light very effectively. An anti-reflective coating prevents unwanted reflections and enhances contrast. No more moiré, no more IR contamination. No need for expensive IRND.
The Rawlite OLPF is a thicker than the original filter. Consequently a shim is needed to correct backfocus. The shim is included in the kit, as well as tools needed for installation.
