Creates a picture with a clear focus and a soft gradation. This effect is especially evident on an object with a point light source. A filter randomly arranging minute lens shaped like drops of water on the surface of a acrylic board scatters the light and results in a soft focus.
This medium-class filter series was developed in the mid-2000s when digital single-lens reﬂex cameras were popular. Adopting digital multi-coat technology, these filters achieve an overall filter transparency of 99% (protector) with a minimum price premium. The new-concept filter series employs a black-painted frame for reduced reflection in the glass, a knurled frame for easy attachment, and other user-friendly features. These filters function well not only with digital cameras but also with ﬁlm cameras.
Digital multi-coated filters greatly reduce the appearance of lens flare and ghosting caused by reflections.
