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 (8 Point) Star Effect Resin Filter for Cokin P:

    I bought this filter to have some fun with making reflecting light look like starbursts. It does that, and it does it pretty well, but I was unhappy with the reduction of clarity it gives the resulting image. Shots taken with this filter are super soft- almost like the way soap operas look. Hopefully that makes sense. Anyway, I was hoping for something that didn't reduce the quality of the image- I just wanted the reflecting light to be enhanced.
