The Soft/FX series has a pattern of tiny lenslets designed specifically to put fine image elements, like wrinkles and skin blemishes, out of focus while leaving larger details such as the eyes, sharp.
Lighter densities are very subtle, producing virtually no flare from highlights or reduction in contrast. The higher densities work harder to minimize facial imperfections and provide a more pleasing portrait.
Tiffen Digital HT® Filters
Made from the purest optical quality glass and Tiffen's award-winning ColorCore technology, Tiffen Digital HT - High Transmission - filters offer a new breakthrough in multi-coating technology.
Imagine, a double-sided coated filter with the strength of titanium, unmatched scratch-resistant durability and worry-free cleaning.
Other coated filters on the market today cautiously suggest delicate, if any, cleaning procedures, in fear of destroying the coating (and thereby the filter).
Not with the Digital HT filters - the secret is in the titanium coating that makes it extremely durable and protects against damage and mark up.
And that's not all these High Transmission filters feature a low profile titanium finish ring and anti-reflective black lock ring, with a distinctive titanium finish that sets these filters apart from the rest.
Digital HT filters are made in the USA and come with a 10-year warranty, your guarantee of quality assurance.
Digital HT filters are available as the following filters: Digital Ultra Clear, Haze 86 (with 86% UV absorption), Circular Polarizer, 812® Warming Filter, ND .06, ND 1.2, Soft/FX® 3, Star 4 Point 2, and Color-Grad® ND.0.6 in sizes 52mm-82mm.

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.
