Enhance the power of your pictures with the 55mm Soft FX 4 Filter from Tiffen!
Designed for quality and convenience, the FX 4 filter diffuses strong light entering the lens, which spreads the available light around the image evenly and creates a pleasing glowing effect on the picture. The FX 4 is manufactured with ColorCore technology, which involves laminating the substrate of the filter between two pieces of optical glass, grinding it flat to 1/10,000th of an inch and then mounting it to precision metal rings. The filter also features a pattern of small lenslets engineered to put fine picture elements, such as skin blemishes and wrinkles, out of focus while leaving bigger details, such as the eyes, sharp and clear. When used for more general purposes, the diffuser filter creates an ethereal quality in your photographs, giving them a dream-like atmosphere. And while the image is softened, the overall quality and detail of your pictures will remain intact.
Boasting excellent craftsmanship and broad efficacy, the Tiffen 55mm Soft FX 4 Filter has everything you need to create unique and compelling pictures!
The Tiffen The Soft/FX series is a unique diffusion filter that is specifically designed to give the most pleasing of portraits. This filter has a pattern of tiny lenslets designed specifically to put fine image elements, like wrinkles and skin blemishes, out of focus while leaving larger details such as the eyes, sharp. Lighter densities are very subtle, producing virtually no flare from highlights or reduction in contrast. The higher densities work harder to minimize facial imperfections.
The Tiffen 55mm Soft/FX 4 Filter diffuses strong light entering the lens and produces a glowing effect. While the resulting image appears softer and ethereal, there is little loss of clarity or detail. This filter works by diffusing the light entering the lens with small aberrations; by spreading the light more evenly, a soft glow is created rather than the sharp, well-defined image when shooting without a filter. The 4 density provides more softening than the 3, but less than the 5. Tiffen filters are made using ColorCore technology, a process that involves laminating the filter substrate between 2 pieces of optical glass, grinding flat to a tolerance of 1/10,000th of an inch, and then mounting to precision metal rings. Diffuser filter provides an ethereal quality to photographs, resulting in a dream-like atmosphere. Soft image quality does not detract from the overall detail of the image. Light entering the lens is diffused by small aberrations, creating a soft glow rather than the sharp, well-defined image when shooting without a filter.
