The Tiffen Black Satin Filter helps to reduce the overall contrast of an image and better control the highlights within a scene. In addition to rendering highlights with a grittier, more grainy appearance, this filter also helps to subtly soften facial blemishes and wrinkles for a natural, refined look. The 2 density provides more contrast and highlight reduction than the 1, but less than the 3, while still producing a soft, yet natural appearance.
This filter is constructed from Water White glass and is made using ColorCore technology, a process that involves laminating the filter substrate between 2 pieces of optical glass, grinding flat to a tolerance of 1/10,000th of an inch, and mounting to precision metal rings.
I tried this filter, but ended up returning it for the Glimmerglass 2. It was pretty subtle for me — but no complaints. I just liked the Glimmerglass better.
I purchased this filter for my wife’s YouTube channel and she loves it!
Subtly improves the look for digital video - softens the harshness particularly in faces, making for a much more pleasing and flattering image. You can't get the same effect in post. Love this filter for close-in faces in interviews, but for run-and-gun event video as well.
The filter is the perfect blend of diffusion characteristics for my style of shooting. Tiffin has done it again.
