Nikon Soft Focus Filters - This filter is good for portraits and gives a "romantic" style haze to images. Effectively, it lowers contrast but retains sharpness.

This filter can minimize blemishes and other minor imperfections in a subject's appearance. Softens the shot but does not create a "departure from reality" look.

            I use the filter on portraits. It really helps soften the wrinkles and imperfections on women's faces. I have received comments like " this is the best portrait ever taken of me!"

                The product does what it is supposed to do. It seems better for further shots and 1/2 body or whole body portraits. But, at the same crop as the example, it is way too soft for my approach.

                  Comments about Nikon 77 Soft Focus Filter:

                  I own and have used for years Nikon's SOFT 1 & SOFT 2 filters with my film cameras and absolutely love them! But now that I've switched to digital cameras and larger lens fronts (77mm) I had to buy a new soft filter in the larger size. I discovered Nikon no longer makes their wonderful SOFT 1 & SOFT 2 filters so I had to order their "NEW SOFT" (only one strength) filter in the 77mm size which fits most of my new Nikon lenses. This filter seems to be made in a whole different way than the previous ones. I suspect it is made to be more compatible with digital cameras. The results I've had so far seem to give a similar effect to the old filters, but with a little lower contrast which I like when shooting portraits in digital. If you shoot people, this filter really helps smooth out skin imperfections without looking out of focus and your subjects will love the results. [...]

                  Comments about Nikon 77 Soft Focus Filter:

                  I have been using this particular filter for over 14 years. Only thing I can is is that if you could find a Nikon filter, there are probably no filter available better than these glasses. I have used other soft focus filters, but nothing works as well as Nikon Soft Focus filters. They are absolutely the best.
