Star filters create multiple points of light, or "stars," streaking outward from a central light source. This can make lighting within the scene take on a more glittering, glamorous appearance. This effect is produced by a series of thin lines etched into the flat optical surface of a clear filter. The size and brightness of the star lines produced are first a function of the size, shape, and brightness of the light source. Hitech offers 4, 6, and 8 point star effects. With an 8 point filter, the many star lines may tend to overpower the rest of the image, so use it carefully. Generally, mid-range apertures or larger are sufficient to achieve a good star effect. Always test before critical situations.

This filter measures 85 x 85mm and fits the Cokin P series holder and the Hitech "P" series holder.

    Comments about Formatt Hitech 85mm (6 Point) Star Effect Resin Filter for Cokin P:

    Ordered the filter well in advance of using it but there really won't be a lot to embellish on other than by using the modular filter holder concept, the filters are much more versatile. I have numerous Hitech filters.

        Comments about Formatt Hitech 85mm (6 Point) Star Effect Resin Filter for Cokin P:

        although it is what it is, I was somewhat surprised to note rather coarse grid lines compared to other star filters I have owned where the diffraction grates were very subtle. The star is much more pronounced that I expected although I have not yet tried it in settings with faint highlights
