The Formatt 67mm Soft Gold 3 Enhancing Schott-Desag B270 Crown Optical Glass Filter is another incredible innovation from Formatt. This filter has been specifically designed for today's High Definition cameras which tend to be ultrasharp and somewhat unforgiving when it comes to skin tones.
The beauty of this filter is that it will still allow you to obtain lovely, softened images but without a noticeable loss of contrast. It will also correct for the bluish tint associated with some HD photography. As applied to portraiture, it will correct for unsightly skin blemishes and provide smoother, more flattering images of your subject.
Formatt, a company with three generations of professional filter-making experience, produces every filter to the highest technical standards. The finest materials, together with state of-the-art production technology, have resulted in a standard of optical excellence unmatched anywhere else.
HD Soft Gold Enhancing filters are available in three strengths 1 to 3-with 3 having the greatest effect
Soft Gold filters use the latest developments in materials technology to soften outlines and enhance flesh tones, removing blueness and facial blemishes without distortion.
Tiny particles within the skin tone enhancing matrix bounce incoming light onto the reverse face of the glass filter; total internal reflection projects the light into the camera lens, refracted by the glass, softening the image but without losing contrast. The use of refraction eliminates the color split associated with diffusion.
Each filter is manufactured from Schott-Desag B270 Crown Optical Glass
It has absolute consistency in color and density to Kodak Wratten standards.
Its precision grinding and polishing result in unbeatable optical flatness that allows use on even ultra-long focal length lenses.
