With the increase in HD production for both TV and Motion Pictures, this filter addresses both the contrast and sharpness issues associated with HD.
HD Video is higher in contrast than traditional film. The HDTV/FX filter takes the edge off undesired "tack sharpness" associated with HD. It creates a "Film Look" by reducing contrast and also provides subtle improvements in shadow detail. The HDTV/FX filter smoothes out unwanted detail and makes people look their best, especially when shot on HD, without evidence of filtration.
Made of the highest quality optical glass, HDTV/FX filters combine Tiffen's award-winning Ultra Contrast Filter with the new Digital Diffusion/FX Filter. Although results may be very subtle with still photography, the effects of the HDTV/FX are seen more substantially with digital and video applications.
