Filter Grades

We sell Tiffen Pro Mist filters in a variety of grades: ⅛ (Eighth), ¼ (Quarter), ½ (Half), 1, 2 and 3

Accept that ⅛ gives a look that makes you ask “Is there a filter on that shot or not”? ¼ grade is more obvious, but to the non professional, a shot taken with a ¼ Black Pro Mist filter will look natural. ½ grade is obvious to everyone that some diffusion has taken place and is the best selling by far. Grade 1 is a statement, 2 delivers the look of a 70’s erotic movie and 3 is just too much for anyone.

A few notes about the Tiffen Pro Mist family

Warm Pro Mist filters: If you shoot transparency film, with a custom white balance or with the factory presets, you might want to consider using the Warm Pro Mist filters. For just about every other process it is easy to control the warmth of image tone with a custom white balance or in post production, so I tend to recommend post production tweaks for RAW stills shooters.

Regular Pro Mist filters: these deliver a slight lift or fogging, that has an instant low contrast look. If you want the lightness and shadow lift, then the original Pro Mist range of filters are for you. However there is more apparent strength to the filtration than there is with Black Pro Mist Filters. The word ‘mist’ is in the title for a reason and it is obvious with regular Pro Mist Filters 🙂

Black Pro Mist filters: For just about every digital application, I’d recommend the Black Pro Mist filter. It will make your heart sing when you view your pictures on the back of the camera. If you think the effect is too much, it definitely is, so choose a lighter grade. My advice is to be subtle. When I am shooting portraits I am not looking for the Instagram effect. I want to alter the optical quality and resulting digital file in a gentle considered way that will look amazing in print.

A note about grades: Pro Mists filters range in strength from 1/8th to 3 with 1/8th having the least effect and 3 having the most effect. For Black Pro Mist filters ⅛th gives a look that makes you ask “Is there a filter on that shot or not”? ¼ grade is more obvious, but to the non professional, a shot taken with a ¼ Black Pro Mist filter will look natural. ½ grade is obvious to everyone that some diffusion has taken place and is the best selling by far. Grade 1 is a statement, 2 delivers the look of a 70’s erotic movie and 3 is just too much for anyone.

Stock of Tiffen Pro Mist

As well as Tiffen Pro Mist, we can supply any filter in the extensive Tiffen range including many sizes not listed here, so if you can’t see the option you want, please email us.

When will I receive my order?

Tiffen Pro Mist filters are a very sought after product in the UK and as such we cannot possibly keep up with the demand for such a large range of filters. We order directly from the UK supplier when you place an order.

If they have stock in the UK you will receive your filter within a week. If the US manufacturer has stock you should expect to receive your order approximately 2 weeks after you place your order. If they do not have stock in the US, an order is submitted for your filter to be made, and this can take 4 – 6 weeks.

As soon as we receive your order we will contact our supplier and get back to you with an ETA.

Tiffen – Industry leaders in camera effects filters

Tiffen have been the industry leader in effects filters for the motion picture industry for decades.

In the past few years lens design and construction has excelled. It has needed to, in order to keep up with the ever increasing resolving power of the latest CCD and Cmos sensors. It won’t be long before we have 2 micron pixels with super sensitivity. As a result, lenses are far sharper and deliver a higher contrast image than ever before. This is all very well for sharpness seekers and MTF graph readers but some of us creative image makers now face a dilemma. We need to reduce optical contrast and scatter some light without compromising sharpness. In the days of film some of the halation effect was caused by light reflecting off the base of the film and activating surrounding silver halide crystals. This scatter was partially controlled by an anti halation layer on the film surface but not all films were equal. We had a choice. Portrait films had more halation, lower contrast and reduced saturation etc. In the early digital era we were helped to some extent by lenses being rather flary and soft. Now though, digital is here and it screams sparkling clarity at every level.

Post production can help but there really is no substitute for glass. Glass filters scatter light in a way no algorithms will ever match. Glass is fast, easy and instant. If you want a very strong effect it is always best to go part way with glass and add the rest in Photoshop later. Glass solutions are non reversible but are stunningly beautiful.
