Proudly Manufactures Lenses, Filters and Directors Viewfinders for Cinematography

We are a new company established in 2017, yet we have a long history in optics.  Our President - Dwight Lindsey - has 41 years in the Optics business and was recently C.E.O. of Schneider Optics, with offices in New York and Los Angeles, part of the worldwide Schneider Group.

We are based in Lancaster, California, just North of Los Angeles.

Our mission is to offer innovative optics of the highest quality.

Our Motion Picture Filters are unique:

When we began imagining what a better filter should be, we came up with a short (but important) list that sets us apart: 

  • Every filter is manufactured to the highest standard of flatness. By every filter, we mean every filter: Our filters are tested for flatness on our phase-shift Zygo laser interferometer – this matters to us because the flatter the filter, the sharper your image will be. 
  • Our Brilliant Full Spectrum IR ND Filters are solid glass Neutral Density filters with no plastic inter-layer. That means they will never fade, warp, or change. They also attenuate all wavelengths of light (not just the visible) and don't clip red wavelengths, so your images will have fully-saturated reds without any infra-red pollution. They'll aid you in creating truly brilliant images.
  • Our Brilliant-Pol Polarizers work better at reducing reflections and pumping up color saturation, giving you more control over how much reflection you eliminate.
  • All Lindsey Optics products include a 1-year warranty against defects. 

Our Brilliant Macro lens attachments are "Astonishingly Sharp".  They are adaptable to Zeiss, Cooke and Schneider prime lenses between 50mm and 100mm.  And they work "Brilliantly" on compact zoom lenses by Canon, Fujinon, Zeiss and others.  Zoom through Macro!!

Our latest products include the Large Format Directors ViewfinderBrilliant² Rota Pol Circular Polarizer, The Brilliant² Variable ND Neutral Density Filter and the full set of Brilliant² Tray Mount Close-Up Lenses (Diopters).
