Tiffen 44STRK3 overview

  • 1Description

The 4 x 4" Streak 3mm Filter from Tiffen is a special effects filter designed to render a single light ray from a point light source. This filter features a single series of etched lines spaced 3mm apart from each other, which run diagonally across the filter surface. When the filter is rotated, the orientation of the light ray can be adjusted to suit your composition or desired effect. The filter is constructed from clear optical-grade glass for maintained image clarity and measures 4 x 4" / 101.6 x 101.6mm.

Etched lines spaced 3mm apart produce a single ray of light from point light sources, strong highlights, reflective materials, or metallic surfaces.
Filter can be rotated to adjust the orientation of the light streak.
Optical glass construction and clear filter substrate help to maintain the original image quality and do not affect the overall color or contrast.

    Tiffen 44STRK3 reviews

    4 x 4" Streak 3mm Filter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Filter This is a really cool pice of glass. If it's used with lots of lights you get that music video look. I cant really think of a use for this filter outside of a studio or well lit background. I have used it once so far and I'm very happy with my results. It is a bit pricy but all 4X4 filters are. I would not use/or buy this unless you have a matte box with a rotating filter holder. That is a MUST for this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Filter This is a really great filter for effects shots. If your using this filter with studio lights be mindful of your light positions. If they are really close to the camera you get less streak(so I discovered). If your lights are afurther from the camera(15-20 feet) you get more streak. It's a must to have a matte box with a rotating filter holder with this product so you can turn the streaks any way you want them. It's a neat filter, I'm looking forward to using it again.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does what it says: I bought this filter because I was hoping to get that cool horizontal flare you see in movies shot on anamorphic. And I don't like flares made in photoshop. The first time I used this filter was with the new Zeiss 21mm ze. There's no filter holder for that lens, so I just held it in front of the lens and shot a model with a few monolights behind him. The horizontal flare was made up of tiny little boxes(the same boxes that make the flare). I couldn't believe I just wasted all that money on a cheap filter that doesn't give a clean horizontal flare. Well, when I got home I put the filter on the Cokin filter holder and took some shots with the Canon 85L. No squares and a decent horizontal flare. So don't try to handhold the filter unless you have it pressed against the glass, which I should have known in the first place. Pretty stupid, really. This is the only streak filter that I could find by a company that I knew. I don't like putting Tiffen glass in front of my nice lenses, but there are very few alternatives. I think the price on this item is way too much, but if you gotta have it... you gotta have it.
