Used to increase the minimum working distance enabling closer focus from a greater working distance on half of the frame. These special diopters differ from traditional diopters because the single diopter element is precision cut in half and mounted in the ring.
A split diopter is standard diopter element is precision-cut in half and mounted in the ring. It creates a shot with two planes of focus rather than one. Makes a sharp image of the foreground (captured through the diopter) and background (captured through the uncovered half of your camera’s lens). Look of deep focus without stepping down iris. Highlights the relationship of main subject with an object in the background without stepping down the aperture. Ideal for shots in the dark or indoor, when getting more light is difficult. Split screen is also popular for storytelling. To attract attention of the viewer to an object in the background, while the main scene remains in the foreground. Can be used to provoke a certain mood unconsciously for the viewer.
