The 4 x 4" Soft Net Black 1 Filter from Hitech is an excellent choice for softening your image when you need to reduce contrast that helps to minimize facial imperfections. It's especially effective during portrait and interview sessions when you wish to give your subject a gentler more soft appearance. It is made with a fine grid. It is also recognized as having a stronger effect than Hitech's Movie Mist Filters. The Grade 1 Soft Net Black Filter softens fine details, lowers contrast and adds diffusion to the image.
The Hitech filter system is made by Formatt - an English company that is renowned for its high manufacturing standards and consistency of quality. Their CR39 resin is manufactured in large sheets that are oven cured. Their exclusive Absorbing Cell Technology absorbs color as opposed to other filters that are coated. Once cured, they are sliced up to create individual filters. In this way, maximum consistency is maintained from filter to filter. This becomes crucial when you wish to change filters either mid shoot or from day-to-day.
Minimizes contrast while softening fine details such as facial blemishes
Excellent for portraiture where a softer but no-harsh looking diffusion is desired
Absorbing Cell Technology

Hitech filters are manufactured to exacting standards and can be counted on to be consistent filter to filter which means you can change filters mid shot or from day-to-day and still maintain the same exposure
Hitech filters are made by Formatt, a company with three generations of professional filter-making experience that produces every filter to the highest technical standards.
