Tiffen Black Pro-Mist Overview

The Tiffen 4.5" Round Black Pro-Mist 1/4 Filter helps to reduce the value of the highlights while slightly lowering the overall contrast. This filter is especially useful for smoothing out and softening facial wrinkles and other blemishes. While designed for use with movies, this filter can also be used for fashion and beauty applications. Unlike a traditional diffusion or soft focus filter, Pro-Mist filters provide little loss of detail across the image. The 1/4 density provides a very small amount of contrast and highlight reduction and allows for a soft, pastel-like quality of light.

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

Pro-Mist filters provide little loss of detail across the image compared to traditional diffusion and soft focus filters.
Especially useful for smoothing out and softening facial wrinkles and other blemishes.

Does this filter have less than 8mm thickness to work with the Wooden Camera zip box filter holder? #WO271400
Asked by: jeffrey
4.5" is a professional motion picture size. The standard thickness for those is 4mm and it is our understanding that is what this one is.

What is the outer diameter of this filter ?
Asked by: William
According to Tiffen, they state that the 4.5” filters are not threaded, as it is a drop-in style filter made for adapters. As such, the 4.5" size reflects the total size of the filter (which includes the outer diameter) which would fit into a 4.5” holder.

This filter would accentuate the glare if anything. What you want is a polariser.
