Tiffen filters video demonstration

All I can think of is that the bulb is dimmed or lower wattage, maybe some milky coating on the glass. Probably someone has a better explanation.

Edit: Also I suppose that everything is placed further away from the black background, so light from the bulb doesn't spill on the background.

No its the nature of promist filter which has very fine particle that will diffuse the light a little bit. So more of it and there will be more diffusion effect. Shane hulburt has a nice article on the different filters on his blog.

I believe Inazuma's question was how there is no glow on the bulb in the shot without filter.

put a piece of kitchen food cling film over your lens - it does approximately the same thing - try it then you can see what it does.

it reduces contrast and sharpness and you get blooming on highlights

Just do it in post! For the price of one filter you can buy Coloristra!


I've done head to head comparisons with filters vs magic bullet haze/diffusion. For lower filtration, filters look much better. Higher filtration, it doesnt matter so much. MB works fine for that.

Yes I agree, but dang, those little things are expensive!  You can buy a used L lens for the same price. I want one, but not for $400 plus dollars.

      Last night I was looking on Vimeo at GX7 videos to see what other people were producing. For the most part it all seemed very casual, not much good stuff in there. But then I came across this:

      First of all you should know that I've been shooting with my GX7 for almost a year now and I've messed around with the camera settings and resultant footage loads. So I pretty much know GX7 footage when I see it. The video above looks completely different to anything I've seen previously.I remember a phrase Andrew used in one of his videos regarding the BMPCC, "The camera has a very filmic response to mid-tones". And I guess this is the only phrase I can use to quantify what makes this footage look different. 
       
      If you look at the tags on the video above you will see a mention of "Tiffen Ultra Contrast 5". So I did a little more research and it seems these things had their hayday a couple years ago around the time when the GH1/2 and Canon rebels were popular. These days some people still use them even for high end cameras like the RED. 
       
      Here is the description from Tiffen itself:
       
      I quite like the look that diffuser filters give and it sounds like the Low Contrast filter will give some of that look along with the softened contrast. Does anyone here have any experience with these and can make recommendations?

      Hiya Guys!
       
      I'm new to this forum and will try to be as clear as possible. :)
       
      I'm about to buy new gear for videography pretty soon and have already chosen to go for the GH4,
      that i will use with these lenses : Voigtlander Nokton MF 35mm f/1.4 (77mm with crop factor), Nikkor 35mm DX (56mm with speedbooster), Nikkor 50mm FX (80mm with sb) and a Nikkor 18-55mm DX (28,8-88mm with sb).    I applied a 2,2 crop factor for Voigtlander lenses and 1,6 for the Nikon ones (DX and FX). Is this correct? I keep seeing different crop factors all over the internet.    The main use will be documentary and travel videography, so I'm trying to get good and sharp gear easy to travel with as I'll be shooting alone or with only one person.  I've read several threads on the eoshd forum, reviews... and still have a few questions concerning ND filters.    It seems like I should get a variable ND filter with a 77 or 82mm diameter. The max budget for the filters (one VND or filter system) would be 300/400 US dollars tops.    - would you recommend a VND filter rather than a filter-system + ND filters for my use? - my Nokton diameter is 43mm, do you know if a step up ring 43-82 mm or 43-77mm exists? I couldn't find one over the internet.  - if you faced this problem, did you find a solution?  - would I get vignetting on corners with wide lenses even with the crop factor?  - Reviews seem to highlight the Heliopan and Tiffen VND, are there massive pros for one rather than the other?    I'm sorry for this long post! One question always seems to lead to another one...  Thank you very much to those who will read and answer me :)  And a huge thank you to all other posts and people in the forum for the previous topics that helped me.  Woooo!
