Hoya has announced their new Hoya Mist Diffuser Black creative series filters. Designed to give a “stylish cinematic effect”, Hoya’s new Mist Diffuser Black No1 and No0.5 filters are of the screw-on variety, available in 49mm, 52mm, 55mm, 58m, 62mm, 67mm, 72mm, 77mm and 82mm diameters. The “No” denotes their strength.
The goal of these filters is to create a soft and diffused look that’s often seen in cinema while retaining the sharpness where it counts. Essentially, it gives your light sources a nice soft glow while diffusing the often too-sharp image of modern lenses.
