B+W 65-064423 overview

  • 1Description

The B+W 77mm 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 77mm 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.

    77mm Cross Screen 8x Filter is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I would have expected from B+W This filter definitely adds the star effect, but to the detriment of the photograph. It is not a subtle effect as I have seen in other photographers' work, nor like the example shown in the decription, especially up close. It is an obnoxious star reflection that fills about 1/3 of the photograph and it ends up being all you see. Rather than adding to the interest of the photo it distracts your eye. It also adds various artifacts to the image. I would not recommend this specific model.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good filter Great for night shot with some lights, can be to much with alot of lights in frame.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Degrades Image Quality I wanted a subtle star effect. This filter adds significant effect on point lights but also adds various ghosting, flares, and generally degrades the quality of the image in my opinion. I tried various light sources and could not get a reasonable result so I returned the filter.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty pleased I use this filter for diamonds, and the boss is loving the effect. I don't necessarily care for the unnatural look produced with filter vs. f-stop, but if that's what he wants, that's what he gets. Overall, very pleased.
