Helping to reduce contrast and produce a subtle overall softening effect, the 82mm Black Mist Filter from Hoya is well-suited for portraiture applications. By lessening the harsh contrast of a scene, and softening the image quality, this filter is especially useful for smoothing out unwanted wrinkles or blemishes from subjects, and for producing a more controlled appearance.
This filter is constructed from optical glass and is set within an aluminium alloy ring, which features 82mm front threads for stacking additional filters or attaching a lens cap.
