The Tiffen Satin Filter can be applied to purposely reduce the appearance of blemishes and wrinkles. This can be useful for creating a more flattering result of a subject while highlights are softened, contrast is reduced, and textures are given a smoother appearance. Additionally, a halation effect around highlights is created which can further enhance a subject's appearance or produce a desired effect while overall sharpness is maintained.
This filter has a grade of 2. Grades of 1 and 3 are also available where this filter type's effect becomes approximately twice as strong with each grade number increase.
This filter is constructed from water white glass for increased clarity as well as color fidelity. It is made using ColorCore technology, a process that involves laminating the filter substrate between 2 pieces of optical glass and grinding flat to a tolerance of 1/10,000th of an inch, and then mounting to precision metal rings.
Nothing against the quality of the filter -- it works as advertised. Only, it is not as strong for 4K recording as it is for HD 1080p. However, the ordering experience on Tiffen has not been great for me. First, the Amazon Pay and PayPal accounts Tiffen allows for some reason need to be U.S.-based for payments. In 2019 that doesn't make much sense. Second, the prices not only do not show import duties for ordering overseas, but also don't have disclaimers explaining that the import fees need to be borne by the buyer. I ended up paying twice the retail price just because of lack of clarity.
Thanks for being a Tiffen customer. We recently launched our online web store and appreciate the feedback. We continue to look into the most convenient payment options to make your shopping experience as easy as possible. During the checkout process there is a disclaimer stating that Tiffen is not responsible for any import duties and taxes. We are sorry to hear that you missed this.
