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.

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
