Product Highlights
  • Star Effect Filter
  • 6 Points on Specular Highlights
  • Rugged Black Brass Filter Ring
  • Optical-Grade Acrylic Construction

The B+W 77mm Cross Screen 6X 686 Filter is a cross screen filter providing 6 reflected light points stemming from specular highlights within the image frame. When the filter is rotated in front of the lens, the points shift in direction but always reflect symmetrically. This effect is caused by thinly etched lines on one of the planes of the filter. Star effect filters are most effective when not used in combination with other filters.

This filter is constructed from optical-grade acrylic and features a brass filter ring for durability as well as jamming prevention.

The reflected light points from this filter are of medium length and reflect at 60° from one another.
Cross screen filter provides 6 reflected light points that stem symmetrically from specular highlights within the image frame.
Reflected points of light change direction when filter is rotated.
Star effect is caused by thinly etched lines on the filter surface and does not affect exposure or coloration of the image.

          Good filter. Good price. Separates colors into a spectrum just a bit, but a nice effect.

            Comments about B+W 77mm Cross Screen 6X 686 Filter:

            Love the twinkly light effects--great for magical stars on bubbles.

            Only downside (with bubbles in particular) is it creates a crosshatch effect on any light bokeh that is either too close or too far away to be in focus. As a result, requires closing up the aperture...

            Comments about B+W 77mm Cross Screen 6X 686 Filter:

            This is a fun filter when shooting scenes that have light and you are using a lower F stop. Usually a higher F stop will cause some star effects, like when shooting at night and a light is in the scene. But I use this when shooting flowers with water drops on them...really adds to the photograph. A fun filter to use!

              This is the best cross screen that I've own. It has the ring so that you can turn the filter to adjust the lighting direction of the star. The other filter doens't have this option.
              This is an excellent gadget to create a stunning photo with light, candles...
