Tiffen 72mm Pro-Mist 1/2 Filter
Tiffen 72mm Regular (White) Pro-Mist Filter 1/2
The regular Pro-Mist (aka White Pro-Mist) is a popular motion picture effect. Creates special "atmosphere" by softening excess sharpness and contrast; creates pearlescent glow around highlights. Great for portraits and landscapes.
When used with digital video cameras, the lighter strengths like 1/8 through 1/2 help reduce the sharpness normally associated with video and yields a 'film look' to the image. These filters are our best selling 'film-look' filters. Note- when shooting scenics and you are looking for that film-look, try the 1/8. Stronger strengths may yield a muddy look.
The PRO-MIST filter is exceptional for creating a mood. Outdoors or indoors, in broad scenics or portraits, the Pro-Mist is excellent for toning down excessive sharpness and reducing contrast by moderately lightening shadow areas without detracting from the overall image. This is especially useful given the contrast and extremely sharp resolution produced by contemporary films and lenses. Pro-Mist filters also yield moderate highlight flare that appears to stay close to the light source like a halo, creating an almost pearlescent glow around the highlights. The Pro-Mist is often used to mute colors and create exquisite pastel tones.
As always, do as the pros do... Test, test, test.
