ARRI has released a larger version of their Full Spectrum Neutral Density (FSND) filter in 6.6”x 6.6” and 4”x 5.65” sizes for use in external matte boxes. ARRI is already very familiar with premium filters; the ALEXA Mini and the AMIRA cameras come equipped with a colour-neutral internal FSND filter. FSND filters reduce the amount of light entering the lens, allowing the filmmaker to shoot at wider T-stops under bright conditions without overexposure. FSND filters also make it possible to blur moving elements such as water or traffic in bright conditions.
