Asked by: felipe
No, unfortunately there are no 86mm Grade 1 Glimmerglass filters. I even checked their website and it's something they don't have on there either.

Is there any light loss?

Is there any light loss?
Asked by: Zak
From testing in the store, we saw no visible change in exposure, likely indicating a 1x filter factor and almost complete light transmission (minus any potential loss from coatings and glimmerglass particulates).

What's the difference between this and a Black Promist Filter?
Asked by: Jesse
A Black Pro-Mist filter and the Tiffen 82mm Glimmerglass 1 Filter soften wrinkles, blemishes, and other details, but the Glimmerglass filter creates glowing highlights, while the Black Pro-Mist filter reduces highlights.

I want this filter for my fujifilm 35mm f2, but it seems rare to find and it doesn't seem like a lot of people have it. Is there a reason for it? I can still get it for my 16-80 but prefer 35mm for street.

Do you know what the equivalent strength of the 1 on this filter is? I was just on set where we used 1/8 in 4 x 5.65 and I liked the strength
Asked by: Christopher
The Tiffen Glimmerglass 1/8 Filter is not made in a screw on type. That is a very low density. The 77mm circular ones come in 1, 3 and 5. So those will have a stronger effect compared to the 1/8.
