Fireburst is a unique range of anamorphic streak and star effect filters. These rectangular filters are currently available in 8 different colours and anamorphic streak, 4 point and 6 point stars, with 8 point stars scheduled for release later in the year.
In addition to the stated colour, the effect is slightly refractive, enabling the filter to pick up and enhance surrounding colours in the image.
The anamorphic streak filter comes in three variations, 1mm, 2mm and 3mm with the measurement relating to the distance between the threads in the filter. The 1mm filters will give the most prominent streak and this effect will reduce in the 2mm and again in the 3mm. The 4 and 6 point stars are all at 3mm spacing.
The effect will also vary according to the size, prominence and contrast of the points of light picked up by the filter against the ambient light. So a daytime shot of reflected sun can give a fine, subtle effect whereas shooting against streetlights later in the day or at night will give a much stronger effect.
The applications for star and anamorphic streak filters are limited only by your imagination!
