New release of Kenko STARRY NIGHT PROSOFTON filter

Jun 20, 2024

We are glad to announce a new Kenko STARRY NIGHT PROSOFTON filter.

Sales will commence on July 15, 2024.


When shooting the night sky, the most demanding effects are light pollution reduction and enhancing the brightness of the stars. Light pollution reduction is achieved by using light pollution cut filter and enhancing the stars is achieved by different types of soft effect filters. But what about one single filter that would combine these both effects?

In order to respond to this photographers' demand Kenko invented STARRY NIGHT PROSOFTON filter.

The Kenko STARRY NIGHT PROSOFTON filter allows to obtain both demanding effects - light pollution reduction and enhancing the starts in the sky just by using one single filter. This solution provides benefits to the photographer such as minimized risk of getting vignetted image and budget-saving.

The softening effect of the Kenko Starry Night Prosofton filter equals to Kenko PRO1D PROSOFTON Clear and light pollution effect is equal to currently selling Kenko STARRY NIGHT filter.

The Kenko STARRY NIGHT PROSOFTON filter is dedicated to all night sky photographers.
