Tiffen 72GDFX3 overview

  • 1Description

The Tiffen 72mm Gold 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. In addition to the diffusion provided, a gold tint is also added to the image giving more warmth and helping to balance skin tones. 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.
Gold tint provides additional warmth and helps to balance skin tones.

    Tiffen 72GDFX3 reviews

    72mm Gold Diffusion/FX 3 Filter is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 50mm and 72mmGold Diffusion f/x3 filter- I have mainly been using the filter to soften the portraits I take because I print straight from the memory card without using computer touch-up. I'm extremely pleased with the softening filter effects. I do make adjustments in my camera to work with the filter as in the sharpness and the coloring to suit my taste for the end results that I'm looking for in the particular portrait that I'm shooting. The results of the filter are very minor but to me that is the way it should be - just enough to take a second look at the photo without realizing why you took a second look.... The camera lens had problems AFing, the photos looked blurry more than not. I tried hard to make it work for me but NO GO.Also it is hard to find much info and samples of the filter's performance on the internet.I still plan to experiment further with the filter on other photo ops besides portraits. But I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys the challenge of producing their end results from the camera and not the computer.Thanks for reading this; I hope it is helpful.Mary Grace@
