A variable ND filter for professional filmmakers
Vary depth of field in film
Cinefade is a camera accessory that allows cinematographers to gradually transition between a deep and a shallow depth of field in one shot at a constant exposure to accentuate a moment of extreme drama in film or to make a client's product stand out in commercials.
Variable ND filter
Our new cmotion Cinefade VariND consists of a motorized polarizer and a static polarizer. When inserted into a matte box together they form a variable neutral density filter.
The cmotion Cinefade VariND can be used with or without a cmotion lens control system combining five useful applications in one solution.
Variable Depth of Field Effect
The Motorised Polariser together with the Static Polariser form a variable ND filter that is slaved to an iris motor and controlled remotely with the cmotion cPRO LCS, allowing cinematographers to vary depth of field in film.
Remote Variable ND
The Motorised Polariser together with the Static Polariser form a variable ND filter that can be remotely controlled with the cmotion cPRO LCS, allowing filmmakers to control the density of the light filter whenever the camera is inaccessible, for example enabling INT to EXT Steadicam shots without riding the iris.
Standalone Variable ND
The Motorised Polariser together with the Static Polariser form a variable ND filter that can be directly adjusted via two buttons on the motor block, without the need for a LCS, saving the AC time when adjusting ND value.
How Cinefade Works
A cmotion lens control system slaves an iris motor to our new cmotion Cinefade VariND. The in-camera effect is remotely controlled with a cmotion cPRO lens control system via the hand unit.
The iris is operated to vary depth of field
Our variable ND filter automatically keeps exposure constant.
