New : DichroFilm by Rosco
Posted 29 November 2008 - 09:29 PM
Our french website for cinematographers, http://afcinema.com (some pages are in English), informs us that Rosco manufactures a new type of dichroïc gels for light sources.
Here's the link to the Spec Sheet : http://www.rosco.com.../dichrofilm.asp
There is no mention of the price, nor of the filters absorption.
Nevertheless, if I'm not mistaking, dichroïc filters absorb much less than usual gels.
Has anybody tried those ? Metered the absorption of the ones that were used ?
Thanks for your replies !

I really don't think they'll catch on for film work, as they're hideously expensive, nearly as much as standard glass dichroic filters.
It'll come in handy for narrow units like source4's, small fresnels and the like. Kinda wish they came in larger sizes as well for bigger units. But still, very cool!

Perhaps they could have a place in TV and blue screen studios.
My experience with glass dichroic filters on tungsten lights was that they sometimes showed odd colur spikes as well as getting real hot.
