The 138mm diopter tray holds a 138mm diopter in a standard Arri style 4 x 5.65 matte box, the construction is solid and reliable. The tray uses two standard slots to accommodate up to a +3 diopter.
Seriously they go above and beyond with communication and service.
Really happy with the +0.25 and +0.50!
Added just enough close focusing distance to a few of my favorite lenses as I wasn't quite happy with their current close focus capabilities.
Build and optical quality is top notch and second only to Revar Cine's amazing customer support.
Thanks for producing awesome products. Cheers
Great product at sensible pricing - these filters are now our " go to " product for rotating Polas -
Ryan at Revar Cine has always delivered on time and the goods have been perfect - not that common these days !
These diopters are a recent release so there isn't much information out there on real-world uses, but as someone who's used Schneider and Lindsay Optics (and now own the +0.5/+1/+2 revar cine diopters) - I can stay the quality is right in line w/ the others, if not BETTER. This applies to both the build quality and optical quality. The kicker on top is that Revar Cine offers amazing service - they'll make sure customers are well taken care of.
One of those must-have diffusion filters in your kit. I initially purchased one and after using it for a couple of days ordered a second (I usually shoot multi-cams on features). Used both in a film I shot a few months ago. Just the right amount of halation without it being too bloomy. I also liked the slightly warm bias the gold flecks produce. Very flattering on skin tones. This has replaced my go-to HBM 1/8 for several projects. Highly recommended.
I own both the +1 and +2. They are incredibly well made and deliver expected results with close focusing. Excellent combination with my Atlas Orion A set.
Great service from Revar. Quick delivery to uk
We have wanted one of the rotating filter trays for some time and finally pulled the trigger. Now we have a quality built tray that makes our life easier and allows more time to create without fussing with bad gear. I had a question and received amazing service too! Might have to buy a t-shirt on the next order and spread the word.
Fantastic filter that accents and blooms lights as well as skin tones in color lights. Especially beautiful at night
Having gaffed a feature with this filter deployed full time, I decided to purchase one myself. This review will focus on anamorphic lens applications, as that seems to be the most popular option currently.
The Scarf Dust filter is more than glimmer glass, and more than black magic, and more than pro mist. There is another quality gold element to the subtle effects on skin tone. This filter combines some of the best effects from other filters together to make something rather special.
On skin, it gives a very subtle, lovely, smoothing effect, taking the edge off of more clinical modern lenses. With a lamp in the frame, it creates a very nice glow effect, coupled with the anamorphic aspects, it then becomes a stretched out halo or veiling flare.
Overall, this filter is a wonderful addition to any kit which will add warmth and interest to the frame.
It does add a nice golden glow. Lifts the shadows a half stop and adds a pleasant softness to skin. Not overpowering!
I've gone through many variable ND systems throughout my career and I've always tried not to use them due to color shifting and strange artifacts. When I discovered the Revar Cine Variable ND system, I opted to buy the Kit B since I own matte boxes with a rotatable 138mm stage. The glass of the Revar Cine filters is of such high quality that I can't tell any difference in the images shot with the Revar and without the Revar filters, even when using the extreme light reducing capabilities of the system. When you hold the filters in your had you just can feel its made with the most premium glass. I'm so happy with the quality of the Revar Cine system that I'm using it on nearly every one of my jobs. Its one of the best investments I've ever made.
Well constructed and high quality glass! The Rita tray works perfectly and gearing is perfect for small changes.
I had trouble finding the right part and they were really fast on answering my questions. So glad to finally have my rota pola up and running
