KhanØptic is pleased to announce an entirely new category of lens filtration. KineticGlass is a customizable fluid filled lens filter capable of producing images that were previously impossible. Filmmakers can now craft distinct visual styles tailored to a film or scene. The possibilities are endless and yet to be discovered.

Key Features
– KineticGlass:
This customizable fluid filled lens filter allows for its contents to move freely within the element thus generating a dynamic effect through the lens.

– LumaTray:
Fully control KineticGlass via smartphone with this illuminated filter tray. Take control of brightness, color temp, direction, flank, and effects.

– Rotating Tray:
The Rotating Filter Tray allows for precise control over the orientation of KineticGlass. KineticGlass can be activated/deactivated mid take as well as remain active indefinitely.

KhanØptic develops and manufactures hardware and software for motion picture. Their mission is to extend the reach of creativity and looks forward to seeing what the community does with these new tools.
