The Tiffen Filter Wheel 3 HDTV FX 1/2 Filter is a gentle softening and diffusion filter specifically designed for use with high definition imaging. This filter helps to lessen the hyper sharpness that is commonly associated with HD photography and produce an image quality that is more akin to film photography. By reducing contrast and sharpness slightly, skin details appear smoother and there is an increase in shadow detail. The effects of this filter are most significant when used for video applications as opposed to still photography. The 1/2 density provides a very subtle amount of softening.
This filter is constructed from Water White glass and is made using ColorCore technology, a process that involves laminating the filter substrate between 2 pieces of optical glass and grinding flat to a tolerance of 1/10,000th of an inch.
