B+W 65-017031 overview

  • 1Description

The B+W 77mm 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.

    77mm Soft Pro Filter is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from B+W quality is next to none My filters are almost exclusively B+W. I have some Tiffen and without a doubt in my opinion the B+W are of higher quality. This particular filter is great for adding some diffusion to subjects. I use it for portraits and in my art. It works well and there is not a huge compensation necessary as with some other filters. I would recommend this product in a heartbeat. It adds a nice touch to photos without extra post shooting processing. As a side note: if you are beginning to get into using filters I recommend that you choose a large size filter (72-77mm) and then buy adapter rings for your lenses. This will minimize your cost and allow for greater flexibility.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As good as the old Zeiss Softar One might shy away from romantic portrait or landscape photography with a lens as sharp as the Zeiss 135mm MF -- unless one uses the B&W Soft Pro filter. It reminds me of the older Zeiss Softar filter. Like the Zeiss filter, the B&W renders an image of soft micro-contrast, while retaining well-defined macro-contrast and an impression of sharpness. Highlights glow softly without suggesting a problem with flare.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just enough softness... I took a portrait of my mother-in-law last week, she said she would always come to me for a portrait because the results were incredible- she could not believed the youth that was captured!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am liking it for portraits I have not used it much, took 2 quick shots to see the difference. It nicely softens the look, to help give a more youthful look or minimize blemishes. While there is software that can also accomplish this, if you know you are going to be doing portraits this will reduce the amount of after photo processing and will make some people (especially the ladies) much happier when they ask to see the picture you just took. The pictures I took were not modified except to change them to black and white.
