The Radiant Soft series expands Schneider-Kreuznach’s diffusion filter line, bringing cinematographers and photographers the ability to give their subject’s skin a radiant, soft glow, while still having control over the contrast, as well as controlling the highlights with very little blooming effect.
From the Schneider-Kreuznach MPTV Filter engineers: "Radiant Soft filters are the result of an intense study of how the internal component of the filter will affect the resulting image. We have formulated a very special laminate which utilizes geometric two-dimensional (planar) blue particles which are carefully classified to yield the most flattering result. The Radiant Soft filters have the effect of toning down skin imperfections while having a limited effect on contrast or highlights. Planar particle selection is the key to avoiding the undesired result of a diffusion filter that assaults contrast and over-blooms highlights. The appearance of this filter delights the senses of all who view it, both in front of and through the lens."
