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

The Tiffen 72mm 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 72mm Soft/FX 2 Filter:

    I use the Soft FX Filter to minimize aliasing when shooting video with my 5D. The diffusion effect softens small details yet leaves the overall picture sharp. It is also flattering to the subject's skin and I like the subtle bloom on strong highlights. Adds texture to otherwise clinically sharp HD footage...
