The B+W 55mm Soft Image (655) Filter is a softening filter that works by diffusing highlights and creating a halo-effect around light sources. The filter surface features small aberrations that help to break up light entering the lens in order to create a soft appearance that can be maintained even when photographing with smaller apertures. This filter is ideal for use with portraiture, still lifes, and general backlit situations, whereas it may be too soft for use with landscape photography.
B+W filters are constructed from high quality Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. They feature a brass filter ring for durability as well as jamming prevention.
