Tiffen North Star overview

  • 1Description

The 77mm North Star Filter from Tiffen creates multiple points of light, or "stars," streaking outward from a central light source. This filter comes in a rotating mount for critical placement of the star effect.

This filter is especially useful for wedding photographers. It helps create a romantic, special effect mood which clients desire. North Stars are best used with a point light source such as a candle, match, flashlight or streetlight.

Tiffen's ColorCore glass is produced through a process that entails permanently laminating the filter material in between two pieces of optical glass that are ground flat to tolerances of a ten-thousandth of an inch, then mounting them in precision aluminum rings.

The effect is produced by a series of thin lines etched into the flat optical surface of a clear filter
Exciting and dazzling star effects generated from original point or reflected light sources with the added glitter and sparkle of these exclusive, natural looking asymmetrical designs and shapes
Great for water scenes, candle flames, street lights, and more
Tiffen offers 4, 6, and 8 point symmetrical star effects as well as additional asymmetrical star patterns through their exclusive Hollywood FX Series (North, Hyper, Vector and Hollywood star effects)
Tiffen's ColorCore glass is sealed between two optical glass sheets. In this way, Tiffen can better control the various densities of their filters and thereby create more exact degrees of filtration. This process makes for greater accuracy of color as opposed to glass that is simply dyed and become subject to deviation during the dye process
Tiffen, a leader in the filter industry, proudly makes its filters in the USA and backs up its products with a solid 10-year warranty

    Tiffen North Star reviews

    77mm North Star Effect Filter is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for candles, diamonds & holidays Great filter for creating a magical effect when shooting candles, holiday lights, or sparkling gemstones. I chose Tiffen's North Star Effect because I liked the natural looking multi-pointed star with a predominant 4 pointed cross and 8 lesser points in between. the filter is well made. it doesn't diminish sharpness. I would recommend playing with it for night street photography before using it for critical work. It will help you become more aware of when the filter will produce too many busy stars in light sources where you do not desire the effect. Though I gladly give 5 stars The third photo I am including is one of my mistakes where the star effect was overwhelming where I did not want it. This is one of those fingers that cannot be properly replaced by photoshop or lightroom effects. Though not a necessity, it is a great tool for your camera bag.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised w/slight limitations Able to create north star rayed effect but one needs to practice with it, relative to angle-of-view from small light-point sources. Practice makes Perfect. Rotates fairly smoothly. Only downside is due to the nature of the inscribed glass surfaces, some sharpness is lost.
