Tokina Cinema Pro 127mm IRND 1.2 4-Stop Neutral Density Filter

Most of today’s high-end cinema cameras do not come equipped with a built-in low-pass or IR cut filter since they try to mimic the human eye and receive as much data as possible from the image subject. The PRO IRND has a 4-stops light reduction equal to a ND optical density of 1.2.

Most of today’s high-end cinema cameras do not come equipped with a built-in low-pass or IR cut filter since they try to mimic the human eye and receive as much data as possible from the image subject. The PRO IRND has a 4-stops light reduction equal to a ND optical density of 1.2.

The more sensitive cameras are to light, however, the more exposure needs to be maintained using a stronger ND filter which in turn creates infrared pollution. To alleviate this issue, many camera manufacturers recommend the use of an IRND filter, even though many of the IRND filters on the market today have adverse side effects that come along with them such as colour shifting.

In addition to this, after adding or replacing an IRND filter, the white balance needs to be adjusted to maintain true colour fidelity, which can quickly become too much work. In the end, the benefit of cutting infrared pollution doesn’t seem like much of a benefit considering the need to continually white balance during a shoot and then correct colour shifts in post.
