The ARRI Impression V Filter Kit are special filters which fit magnetically to the rear of ARRI Signature primes and offer a range of detuned looks to give very clean lenses more ‘character’.
Sixteen filters are supplied in the set which include all eight positive and negative Impression V filters. In addition, the Filter Kit provides all necessary tools to add shims and label filtered lenses using the included inscribable Velcros.
Positive Impression V Filters* Positive strength Impression V Filters produce ‘bauble’ bokeh in the background, where out-of-focus highlights are bright in the middle and blurry at the edges, especially towards the center of the image. Foregrounds may seem sharper. Around the outer parts of the frame, positive filters add a swirling bokeh effect that envelops central subjects and provides a wonderful look for capturing intimate moments. Skin tones seem to glow, and the whole image has a feeling of nostalgic glamor.

Original image with no filter* Signature Primes and Signature Zooms in their original, unfiltered state are designed to be extremely well corrected for spherical aberration. Out-of-focus areas in the image behave consistently in the foreground and the background, displaying bokeh that is gentle and pleasing right across the frame.

Negative Impression V Filters* Negative filters do the opposite. In the background, ‘donut’ bokeh gives out-of-focus highlights a bright ring around the edges, making them sharper. Instead of blending into each other, they overlap to create vibrant, abstract textures. Overall, the negative filters have a grittier, more unsettling look. Background bokeh can be taken to extremes that completely alter the viewer’s emotional perception of subjects at the point of focus, while foregrounds will tend to get a little softer.
