The Glimmerglass is the first series of filters with a "psychological edge". Tiffen has developed the Glimmerglass series of filters for "making people look their best." A new type of diffusion filter, the Glimmerglass subtly softens fine details in a unique manner, while adding a mild glow to highlights. As contrast is also reduced, the look is one of enhanced beauty. A first in this field is the fact that the filter is both effective to look at as well as to look through. The filter has a distinct silver sparkle that has been found to be doubly useful. When production starts and people see the glittering on the front of the lens, they become more confident in the knowledge that the filter is working for them and they may also turn in a better performance.

This filter is best utilized with a camera to enhance portraits, and for video to enhance Interview style sets. These filters come in different grades from 1-5 so you can dial in the amount of effect for your particular setting.
I use it with Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM mounted on my Rebel XSi and EOS-3. Soft effect is as expected.
can only us in full sun and even then leaves pics very unclear. nothing like they show online also my client thought i screwed up the pic non of my clients like this look at all! a wast of money
