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

The Tiffen 58mm Soft/FX 2 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 2 density provides more softening than the 1, but less than the 3.

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.

          Comments about Tiffen 58mm Soft/FX 2 Filter:

          I thought the this filter would have done a better job at smoothing skin for portraits. If I was to buy it again, I would of went for F/X 3 or F/X 4. The photo that is shown in the product description if very misleading. If you really want to save money this effect can be done in photo editing software.

            I loves this filter F/X 2. It gives a soft focus to my portraits without actually blurring the image. Very good for close up portraits.
