B+W 65-064416 Overview

The B+W 52mm Cross Screen 8x 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 that help to create a starburst effect with eight primary diffraction spikes that extend from the light source.

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. The B+W 52mm Cross Screen 8x Filter is constructed from optical glass for clarity as well as color fidelity, and features an F-Pro brass filter ring for durability as well as jamming prevention. The filter ring can be rotated in order to adjust the direction of the diffraction spikes and overall orientation of the starburst effect.

question

Will this work well with achieving the sunray effect during sunrise/sunset? Will this filter effect the look of the image in any other way?
Asked by: Johan H.
This will not help with the sunray effect at sunrise or sunset. It will give more of a twinkle/pointed star effect of the sun or any other prominent light sources, such as the example shown with the street lamps.

question

does this effect exposure at all? If so by how many stops?
Asked by: Anonymous
According to B+W, the filter factor of their Cross Screen 8x filters is 0, so there should be little to no affect on exposure.
