B+W 65-016910 overview

  • 1Description

The B+W 52mm Soft Pro Filter can be applied to purposely reduce the appearance of blemishes and wrinkles in portraits or to apply a general soft-focus effect while maintaining overall sharpness. An array of small lenses distributed throughout the surface of this filter softens highlight contrast and reduces glare, which can be useful for creating a more flattering result of a subject. Additionally, a glowing effect around highlights is created which distributes ambient illumination to darker areas within a scene, helping to uniformly balance the tonal range among highlights and shadows. This can further enhance a subject's appearance or produce a desired effect while detail is increased within shadow regions.

This filter is constructed from optical glass for clarity and features an F-Pro brass filter ring for durability as well as jamming prevention.

    52mm Soft Pro Filter is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Post-Processing Time Saver This filter gives a nice softening effect and will save you time with the healing brush/clone stamp in Photoshop. Want to avoid the swiss-cheese effect? Don't shoot at f/16!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multi-purpose I actually bought this to go with my Nikon 55mm F2.8, which tends to be extremely sharp even at minimum focusing distance. This filter helps soften edges on close-ups of flowers, so I can directly capture images with more of an ethereal softness/glow to them. I have not used this for portraiture yet, but I can see how useful it could be. You really can't go wrong with B+W products.
