The Timing Filter In Action
THE ---BLUE STREAK--- FILTER
is a special-effect filter designed to help camera professionals create the effect of an anamorphic flare. It is a kin to the clear streak filter which is historically known as a two-point star effect. Because of its radiant cobalt color, the Blue streak has become one of the most popular special-effect filters in today's image-making market.
Its end result is influenced by the size, scope, and intensity of the light source.
But many camera professionals have discovered interesting techniques that enable
the Blue Streak to tastefully spice-up a scene.
The Blue streak generally comes in 3 strengths:
1mm (Robust), 2mm (Conservative), 3mm (Mild).

Vari-color polarizers enable the camera professional to uniquely change the color of a glare or a reflection, even in low-light conditions. Vari-color polarizers can be combined with conventional polarizers to dramatize a scene to breath-taking proportions.
