Product Highlights
  • Diffusion Filter Creates Glow Effect
  • Softens Skin and Blemishes
  • Slight Reduction in Contrast
  • ColorCore Technology

The Tiffen 77mm Soft/FX 1 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 1 density provides more softening than the 1/2, but less than the 2.

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.

            I often shoot women who just want that softer look and no matter how I tweak the lighting, they aren't happy. This filter is the magic weapon that works every time.

                    This is a very nice diffusion filter that effects small line without softening the overall image. I use it mainly for video productions.
                    The only caution you should take, is if you're using a still camera lens on a video camera, and thus only using part of the lens. This will actually increase the "strength" of the filter and diffuse the image even more, maybe more than what you want.

                        Recently I had to do a re-shoot for one of our biggest clients. The first go-around, our client came out looking to wrinkled and older than he should have. I purchased a Tiffen Soft/FX #1 filter and did a re-shoot. Our client came out looking a bit "softer" with this filter. Of course we changed the lighting some but I believe this filter made all the difference between looking good and finding another production company.
