The Tiffen 2 x 2" Bronze Glimmerglass 4 Filter is a beauty filter whose function is two-fold: in addition to modifying the appearance of the image itself, it also features a sparkling appearance when viewed from the front, instilling more confidence in the model. The filter itself imparts a bronze tint across the image and helps to soften skin details and blemishes. It also produces glowing highlights and a mild reduction in contrast for a more ethereal appearance. The 4 density provides more bronze tint that the 3, but less than the 5.
This filter is made using ColorCore technology, a process that involves laminating the filter substrate between 2 pieces of optical glass and grinding flat to a tolerance of 1/10,000th of an inch. This filter measures 2 x 2" / 50.8 x 50.8mm.
