Tiffen 67mm Hyper Star Filter
Key Features
  • Starburst Effect from Point Light Source
  • Elliptically-Shaped Starbursts
  • Diffraction Spike Starbursts
  • 14 Primary Diffraction Spikes
The Tiffen 67mm Hyper Star Filter is designed to be used perpendicular to a point light source such as the sun, a light bulb, or a candle. Within the filter's surface is a combination of fine, etched line types. Those lines help to create a starburst effect with 14 primary diffraction spikes that extend from the light source which is also given an elliptical shape. The Tiffen 67mm Hyper Star Filter arranges those diffraction spikes in a pattern where seven primary diffraction spikes are grouped along both sides of the elliptically-shaped light source that are furthest from each other.

Tiffen Hyper Star Overview

The Tiffen 67mm Hyper Star Filter is designed to be used perpendicular to a point light source such as the sun, a light bulb, or a candle. Within the filter's surface is a combination of fine, etched line types. Those lines help to create a starburst effect with 14 primary diffraction spikes that extend from the light source which is also given an elliptical shape. The Tiffen 67mm Hyper Star Filter arranges those diffraction spikes in a pattern where seven primary diffraction spikes are grouped along both sides of the elliptically-shaped light source that are furthest from each other.

This filter is most effective for pictures where the light source used to generate the starburst effect is a highlight with a significant degree of contrast from the rest of the image. It is constructed from optical glass for clarity as well as color fidelity, and features an aluminum-alloy filter ring that can be rotated in order to adjust the direction of the diffraction spikes and overall orientation of the starburst effect.

Hyper Star filter

I have not had a lot of chances to use this filter, but have experimented with it a few times. I like it, but not crazy about it. I would say it lives up to it's name. It produces HYPER star bursts! It could be great at times, but I think usage will be very limited. I may end up getting just a more normal 4 or 6 point filter. I do very much like the adjust-ability of the filter. You can change the angle of the burst pattern. So, a good filter that does what it is supposed to do, just maybe a bit TOO much which makes it's use more limited.

Nice filter!

This filter works well to this point I haven’t got to use it as much as I would love to. Love it so far!
