Tiffen 77BDFX3 overview

  • 1Description

The Tiffen 77mm Black Diffusion/FX 3 Filter diffuses strong light entering the lens and produces a glowing effect. While the resulting image appears softer and ethereal, there is little loss of clarity or detail. This filter works by diffusing the light entering the lens with small aberrations; by spreading the light more evenly, a soft glow is created rather than the sharp, well-defined image when shooting without a filter. This filter has a 3 density, providing a moderate amount of softening.

Tiffen filters are made using ColorCore technology, a process that involves laminating the filter substrate between 2 pieces of optical glass, grinding flat to a tolerance of 1/10,000th of an inch, and then mounting to precision metal rings.

Diffuser filter provides an ethereal quality to photographs, resulting in a dream-like atmosphere.
Soft image quality does not detract from the overall detail of the image.
Light entering the lens is diffused by small aberrations, creating a soft glow rather than the sharp, well-defined image when shooting without a filter.

    Tiffen 77BDFX3 reviews

    77mm Black Diffusion/FX 3 Filter is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice effect, but bad workmanship I purchased Black Diffusion F/X #1 and #3 filters not for portrait photography but for taking pictures of the night sky. With the filters point light sources are surrounded by a small halo whose brightness falls off quickly with increasing distance from the center. Bright stars in the sky turn into tiny fuzzy disks while the dimmer ones remain singe-pixel dots. Overall this leads to a more natural rendition of the night sky. I am quite pleased with the effect.I've found that the filters work best with wide angle lenses. With telephoto lenses you get a grid-like arrangement of bright dots around point light sources in the image.Unfortunately, workmanship of the filter frame is lousy; the male threads on the lens-facing side are a very tight fit for most of the lenses I tried, and they don't fit at all on some. More often than not trying to screw the #3 filter into the lens leads to cross-threading.In addition, the glass the #1 filter appears to be slightly concave instead of perfectly flat. To focus at infinity with the filter on you have to turn the focusing ring some distance past the infinity mark. The filter is not usable on lenses where the focusing ring has a hard stop at infinity. I would expect better optical quality from a $ filter (77mm version).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicely done The Tiffen Black Diffusion/FX 3 filter produces the effect I was looking for. It's well made with a nice finish and threads easily on my Nikon glass.
