MIST FILTER

More creativity for your photography.


In the age of high-resolution camera lenses with perfect imaging performance, photographers are often looking for ways to add an artistic touch to their images. Mist filters offer a solution by adding an atmospheric aura to images and movie scenes. These filters have become an important tool for photographers who want to create a romantic and cinematic atmosphere inspired by the look of vintage films. You can choose between White and Black mist filter for a variety of creative expressions. 

Our mist filters are available in two versions: White Mist and Black Mist.

White Mist


White Mist B+W Filter create a soft, dreamy effect reminiscent of classic soft-focus techniques. Ideal for portrait and landscape photography, they work wonders in bright sunlight, softening harsh shadows and casting a more even, softer light on the scene. Photographers can look forward to a special retro look that adds a magical charm to their shots.

Black Mist 


Black Mist B+W Filter add another dimension to creative expression by creating a more atmospheric look with less image brightening. They provide richer blacks and halos around highlights, adding depth and atmosphere.

Tips for mist filter


The best effect is achieved under appropriate lighting conditions. Backlight, highlights and specular highlights must be present. Start with a discreet filter strength of ¼ and then increase. 

The effect of the dust filter is affected by the choice of aperture, so the aperture should be chosen carefully and not too wide. For example, the maximum aperture is 11 at 50 mm/FF or 5.6 at 28 mm/FF. Telephoto lenses starting at 85 mm/FF are less critical. If the lens is stopped down too much, the effect structure can be sharply reproduced in the image due to the larger focus area. This is especially true for cameras with smaller image sensors.

Fog filters do not require an exposure extension. However, the exposure should be generous rather than too short. Depending on personal preference, exposure compensation of +1/3 to +1/2 stops is recommended. A good way to gain experience in finding the optimal exposure is to take a series of shots with different exposure settings.
