About the KipperTie Pearl Filter for DSMC2 S35

Pearl softens and expands highlights, smooths fine detail, yet retains sharp focus. Even the largest bokeh is rendered faithfully to the taking lens, with zero patterning.  Available in two diffusion densities, both using  KipperTie’s own optimised colour calibration.The KipperTie lowcon diffusion filter range is carefully designed to provide the most effective, beautiful and consistent diffusion for your RED camera. A rare product that improves your images yet simplifies your rig. Each filter combines precision scientific-grade optical components with artisan hand-production techniques. The true optical low-pass filter function is maintained, and colour calibration is matched to Red’s standard options.

Will the camera recognise the filter automatically?

DSMC 1 cameras require manual selection of OLPF type in all cases. DSMC2 cameras will detect (on start-up only) the general type of OLPF fitted. RED original filters will select a single fixed calibration, KipperTie’s 3rd party filters will allow the user to select their choice of colour calibration, and allow the entry of custom metadata to describe the OLPF.

Which calibration should I select?

For diffusion filters, please select ‘Skintone Highlight’ as the calibration in the OLPF menu. DSMC2: Click ‘none’, change to ‘3rd party’ and then select ‘Skintone Highlight’ and add custom data if required to describe filter type. For false colour filters, please select ‘None’ or ‘Low light optimised’ as the calibration in the OLPF menu. DSMC2: Choose ‘none’, or change to ‘3rd party’ and then select ‘Low light optimised’ and add custom data if required to describe filter type.

Do I need to blackshade again?

Black shading is not affected by OLPF choice. If a change in OLPF calibration type reveals any fixed pattern noise, your blackshade was already incorrect. Follow the standard procedure for sensor calibration in this case.

Is it safe to swap the filter in the field?

DSMC2 – OLPF swapping is safe and reasonably trivial. Only one tool is needed, all screws are captive, and nothing that is exposed in the process is more sensitive than might be exposed during a lens swap. As a rule of thumb, if it is safe to swap lenses, its safe to swap OLPFs.DSMC1 – OLPF swapping is simple but requires care and precision. Small loose screws mean that this is best carried out with the camera tilted back at 45 degrees, on a work bench, or at worst on a camera cart in a clean environment.

How should I clean the filter?

Due to the sophisticated coatings, cleaning OLPFs can be somewhat tricky. First of all assess in camera whether marks visible to the eye actually show up in your image. Don’t clean unless essential. The design of the camera is such that is much more forgiving than you would expect. Bear in mind that with any diffusion filter you will potentially see the filter particles if you shoot at a very deep f-stop, and it is often only at that deep stop that dirt on the filter also becomes visible. A bulb type blower for dust removal should be the first tool. If that does not work, remove the OLPF from the camera and use canned air to blow the glass clean. Note: keep the can motionless and upright, and move the filter around, not vice-versa. For grease and smears, any kind of lens cleaning fluid is acceptable. Our factory uses pure alcohol, but again, do this with the filter removed from the camera. Use multiple soft lens tissues, discarding after each wipe.

Are there low-light or standard options?

Kippertie only produce filters compatible with, but not identical to, the Skintone Highlight calibration. It is their considered technical opinion that, due to the advances in DSMC2 image processing and noise, the detrimental effects on grain are no longer considerable enough to justify the compromises in both colour gamut and other optical aspects.

Compatibility DSMC2 filters fit Weapon Dragon, Scarlet-W, Epic-W, Helium S35
By incorporating the filter directly inside the OLPF a number of issues with front-of-lens filtration are removed:
  • No need to take up a stage in your matte box (or even to use one at all)
  • No internal reflections from additional optical surfaces
  • No more swapping diffusion filters every time you change focal length; the effect is focal length independent
  • Filter any size or shape of lens, no matter how huge, bulbous or difficult to handle
  • Greatly reduced ‘sparkling’ and bokeh patterning, with micro-fine diffusion particles
