Carbon softens fine detail, and retains sharp focus with minimal contrast loss and flare. Bokeh is rendered faithfully to the taking lens, with minor patterning.

Available in two diffusion densities, both using KipperTie’s own optimised colour calibration.

More About KipperTie Diffusion Filters

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.

By the 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Compatibility

VV size filters will mechanically fit any DSMC2 camera body. The glass area is bigger, to accommodate the larger sensor size.

For future proofing and simplicity it is possible to use the VV size filter in an S35 camera. Numerous customers queuing for the VV upgrade have selected this option. KipperTie can provide custom self adhesive OLPF masks on request to eliminate any unexpected gate flare on S35 that may arise.

Category: Compatibility

Red camera bodies are either DSMC1 or DSMC2. The OLPF design is incompatible between generations.

DSMC1 filters fit:
Epic Dragon (inc. monochrome), Scarlet Dragon.

DSMC2 filters fit:
Weapon Dragon, Scarlet-W (inc. monochrome), Epic-W, Helium S35

Red One, Red One MX, Epic MX and Scarlet MX are not supported.
DSMC1 filters are discontinued for all except false colour types.

Category: Compatibility

Dragon and Helium sensors have a different pixel pitch, as such it is no longer possible to be explicit about sensor optical area by referring to the ‘K’ resolution.

S35 refers to a sensor size approximating 3 perf S35 film. This covers all DSMC1 and DSMC2 RED cameras, whether 5K, 6K (Dragon) or 8K (Helium) with one exception:

VV refers to a sensor size approximating Vistavision, or full frame stills film. This is presently only available in the Weapon Dragon 8K VV and VV Anamorphic cameras.

Category: Compatibility

If you are moving from one DSMC2 body to another, your filters remain compatible. Only the VV upgrade requires a change of OLPF size.

If you have upgraded from DSMC1 to DSMC2 your filters will need to be replaced.
There is a strong secondhand market for all RED accessories, however we can offer loyalty discounts for those wishing to trade-in and upgrade. Contact us directly for a discount code.
