The Filter Gallery specializes in camera filters, matte boxes, and image-controlling devices. We have been serving the motion-picture, television,
and professional still-photo communities since 2001.
We are a sales, rental, and service-driven company, but we are better
known for our technical support, our unique range of hard-to-find filters, and the introduction of the
 BLUE STREAK  
Filter, as well as 
our VARI-COLOR polarizers.

  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  
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.
