Tiffen 58SFX2 Overview

The Tiffen 58mm Soft/FX 2 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 within the surface of this filter smooths fine lines and textures, which can be useful for creating a more flattering result of a subject.

This filter has a grade of 2. Grades of 1/2, 1, 3, 4, and 5 are also available where this filter type's effect becomes approximately twice as strong with each grade number increase. When higher grade numbers are applied, a halation effect around highlights can be created to further enhance a subject's appearance or produce a desired effect.

This filter is constructed from optical glass for clarity as well as color fidelity. It is made using ColorCore technology, a process that involves laminating the filter substrate between two pieces of optical glass and grinding flat to a tolerance of 1/10,000th of an inch, and then mounting to precision metal rings.

Not worth it

I thought the this filter would have done a better job at smoothing skin for portraits. If I was to buy it again, I would of went for F/X 3 or F/X 4. The photo that is shown in the product description if very misleading. If you really want to save money this effect can be done in photo editing software.

Good quality filter

I loves this filter F/X 2. It gives a soft focus to my portraits without actually blurring the image. Very good for close up portraits.
