The Tiffen 77mm Black Pro-Mist 1/4 Filter helps to reduce the value of the highlights while slightly lowering the overall contrast. This filter is especially useful for smoothing out and softening facial wrinkles and other blemishes. While designed for use with movies, this filter can also be used for fashion and beauty applications. Unlike a traditional diffusion or soft focus filter, Pro-Mist filters provide little loss of detail across the image. The 1/4 density provides more contrast and highlight reduction than the 1/8, but less than the 1/2, while still allowing for a soft, pastel-like quality of light.

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.

Pro-Mist filters provide little loss of detail across the image compared to traditional diffusion and soft focus filters.

        Comments about Tiffen 77mm Black Pro-Mist 1/4 Filter:

        The Black Pro-Mist adapters will give your video a softer, more filmic look & add a nice halation to highlights. This also improves highlight rolloff and adds the appearance of more dynamic range.

        Just be sure to expose properly, because an overexposed shot, especially in daylight, can be ruined with one of these filters.

              Subtile Image Softening

                Comments about Tiffen 77mm Black Pro-Mist 1/4 Filter:

                The use of HD cameras often provides an unwanted about of image detail, especially in "portrait type" setting. Add to this the deeper depth of field from the comparatively smaller imaging chips and the picture may just look too sharp.

                This is where a subtile filter like the Tiffen Black Pro-Mist really comes in handy.

                Unlike to conventional Pro-Mist which is also available in 1/8, 1/4, 1/2 and Full strengths, the Black Pro-Mist avoids the milky, lower contrast by product. Much like a black stocking on the back of the lens, blacks remain black, and only a subtle softening of detail occurs.

                The Black Pro-Mist is a must have addition to any HD cinematographer's bag of tricks.

                  Comments about Tiffen 77mm Black Pro-Mist 1/4 Filter:

                  I picked this filter, along with the necessary step-up rings to match my favorite lenses. I needed a soft, glowy feel for an independent short film. We just wrapped production, and I'm very happy with the effect. The filter lends a nice glow to everything, without being obnoxious and over-soft. Digital video is very crisp and precise...this filter adds a gentle film glow to everything, which makes it better for creating atmosphere...plus the actors like how kind it is to their skin.
