Schneider-Kreuznach Announces True-Streak® Rainbow Filter


Due to the popularity of True-Streak® filters that mimic dramatic anamorphic-style optical streaks, acclaimed lens and filter-maker Schneider Kreuznach introduces a unique new version for creative in-camera effects. When placed in front of the lens, these filters allow the lens, anamorphic or not, to simulate the streak effect, displaying eight brilliant colors.

The True-Streak Rainbow filter incorporates proprietary techniques that merge eight single colors to seamlessly flow from one to the next, creating a beautiful effect reminiscent of the multi-color flares on uncoated lenses. Depending on the lighting, the effect can make this filter go from subtle beauty to a dramatic, bold streak.

Cinematographer Adam Beck explains, “The beautiful transition of colors within the flare gives the image another layer of complexity to my shots. It’s a uniquely creative tool that I want to have in my arsenal, allowing me greater control over the image in the camera.”

Like the individually colored True-Streak filters (in blue, red, yellow, orange, green, violet, pink, gold and clear), Rainbow Streaks are made with a colored interlayer sandwiched and sealed between two sheets of crystal-clear SCHOTT water-white glass to maintain consistency and durability.

The 4×5.65 size will begin shipping mid-March. Other sizes are available by special order.
