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

The Tiffen 77mm 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.

      I bought the filter for use with a Sony PMW-EX1 video camera. I use it primarily for interviews and find that it gives a nice soft look.

      You need to open the aperture

        Comments about Tiffen 77mm Soft/FX 2 Filter:

        I've used the filter on a Sony EX1. My experience is that you must open the aperture to 8 preferably 5.6 or more open or else the filter pattern is to be seen. The result is good if you use the filter with a little caution. The filter can not quite place behind the standard lens hood on the EX1. You have to grind away a mm from the metal in the filter.
