The 43mm Star Effect 8 pt. Filter from Formatt is a terrific special effects filter for everything from weddings to night shots. It works best with any point light source such as a match, candle or flashlight. These sources create multiple points of light, or "stars", streaking outward from a central light source. This makes the lighting take on a very effective moody, glittering appearance. This effect is achieved through a series of thin etched lines in the flat optical surface of a clear filter.

Keep in mind that the size and brightness of the star lines are a result of the size, shape, and brightness of the light source.

The filter ring is made from aluminum. In addition, the seal between the glass and filter ring is exceptionally strong giving the filter added strength and durability. The excellent Schott Glass used in the manufacturing of this filter is legendary and synonymous with the highest standards of filter production.

Works best with point light sources such as a candle or street light
Formatt offers 2, 4, 6, and 8 point symmetrical star effects 1
Generally, mid-range apertures or larger are sufficient to achieve a good star effect. Always test before critical situations
