Tiffen's Black Pearlescent filters aid cinematographers in taking the edge off the image from modern digital lenses and cameras, especially with 4K acquisition sensors - specifically in mind to enhance the natural beauty of talent. Black Pearlescent filters add a slightly reduced halo effect on specular highlights, and gently softening the overall image with a smooth glow. Today's increased in-camera sharpness and contrast can sometimes show intense detail, and it's here where the Black Pearlescent filter's look comes into its own.
