Glimmerglass is a line of diffusion filters that produces a soft clean halation around practical and specular light sources, while keeping an apparent sharpness on the overall image. On close ups, the apparent sharpness and fine detail is kept as the effect of the filter lowers contrast while softly rolling into the shadow area. This low contrast affect moderately mutes bright colors. This makes the lower end of the glimmer glass diffusion line produce a non-destructive or invasive look.
Even at heavier densities, the filter never becomes overly powerful in its spread of halation. The Glimmerglass series of filters also has a benefit of sparkling when viewed, which can add reassurance to your talent when shooting beauty; that way you can fully concentrate on the look of your shot.

My normal cam is a fully decked out FS7 with matte box and focus pull. But at times I need to downsize but still want the image of the glimmerglass. This has been a perfect additional to my gear to maintain a consistent look.
It was a birthday gift for my son. He was very excited to use it.
I use a sony a6600 with a sony 16-55 lens, the filter works great and the pictures were clear. Will buy again another new filter.
There are a lot of diffusion and halation filters on the market today, but for me the Tiffen Glimmerglass just works beautifully and I know how it will respond, being consistent in any situation. I use a number of Glimmerglass and other Tiffen filters for everything from street documentary to fine art portraiture and performing arts. I’m old-school so I shoot film but this filter works excellent for digital capture as well. Anything one can do in capture to help their image will only benefit in post capture, which is the same in the traditional darkroom and alternative processes as well. I shoot MF and primarily LF and platinum print. Glimmerglass fosters just the right tough of glow and provides a dreamy influence which I’m often after in my printing. I find that a number #1 covers many needs without being too pronounced yet effective for general purpose. I fully trust TIFFEN Glimmerglass as the best of class solution.
