Tiffen 77HTSTR42 overview

  • 1Description

The Tiffen 77mm Digital HT 4 Point/2mm Star Effect Filter is a cross screen filter providing 4 reflected light points stemming from specular highlights within the image frame. When the filter is rotated in front of the lens, the points shift in direction but always reflect symmetrically north-south, east-west. This effect is caused by thinly etched lines on one of the planes of the filter. These etched lines are spaced 2mm apart, producing visual depth and separation between light points in the resulting image. Star effect filters are most effective when not used in combination with other filters.

The Digital HT coating is a high transmission multi-coating that surpasses military specifications for hardness and durability. This optical purity combined with high scratch-resistance results in an easy-to-clean filter with superb imaging quality. They also feature low-profile titanium filter rings for increased strength and vignetting reduction.

Tiffen filters are made using ColorCore technology; a process that involves laminating the filter substrate between 2 pieces of optical glass, grinding flat to a tolerance of 1/10,000th of an inch, then mounting to precision metal rings.

Cross screen filter providing 4 reflected light points that stem symmetrically from specular highlights within the image frame.
Reflected points of light change direction when filter is rotated.
Star effect is caused by thinly etched lines on the filter surface and does not affect exposure or coloration of the image.
Digital HT multi-coating provides increased strength, durability, and optical clarity for greater light transmission and protection against scratches.

    Tiffen 77HTSTR42 reviews

    77mm Digital HT 4 Point/2mm Star Effect Filter is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from mmm...not sure about this purchase I was hoping to add a star filter to my arsenal, so I chose the tiffen filter instead of my trusty bw filters. My goal was to use this during football games under stadium lighting, and I was hoping to have similar results to that of MNF or even prime time college matchups...NOT GONNA HAPPEN. I have used this on my 24mm L and on my 70-200 2.8 ii and must say I am not too happy. The star effect is certainly there, but there is a smoky element I am not proud of, it may be the lights are so darn powerful that the small grids cant help but catch the light. My question is, how do the networks do it? I have two high end lenses and am willing to find out what kind of filter the networks use to have the star effect plus the clear colors of the persons caught on frame. If anybody knows please let me know.
