B+W 62mm Soft Pro Filter
Key Features
  • Soft-Focus Effect
  • Reduces Subject Blemishes and Wrinkles
  • Maintains Overall Sharpness
  • Halation Effect on Highlights
The B+W 62mm 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.

Can this Len used under sun lights, and Landscape mode
Asked by: Tao
You can use the B+W 62mm Soft Pro Filter in any lighting condition and for landscape photos too. However most people only use a soft pro filter for portraiture to help hide wrinkles, acne, etc.

question

It this filter apply for color also?
Asked by: Anonymous
Absolutely. Photographers used to resort to such things as smearing a clear filter with vaseline around the edge add an ethereal aspect but that wasn't so great. Some soft-focus attempt to smear the image. This is much better: it throws soft secondary images on top of the sharp image. The result is that highlights are enhanced, not diffused. Buy one. I own them for my Hasselblad, my Nikon in various sizes. Google on Rodenstock Imagon to see the basis for these filters.
