Thread: Softener filter

  1. #1

    Default Softener filter

    Was browsing for a softener filter on Hoya website. There is this softener A and softener B, what is the diffrerence between them? And will a softener filter fools the camera's AF system such that it cannot focus anymore?

    Sorry, don't know the answer to your question but why would you need a softener if you are using a Sony 707? Can't you easily post process with digital images?

    im using softener A. when i bought it, i asked for the one one with the weakestssoftening effect ===> softener A. as for B, i presumed that the softening effect is more significant.

    cokin softener pales in comparison. the effect is not natural at all. from wat i've heard, nikon has got real nice softeners of diff softening grades but are expensive though.

    im using it with AF cam as well as MF. AF works rather normally. no complaints yet.

    Hi there,
    It make no different whether which soften lens you use.It just make your images more softening.Actually,you don't have to get them anyway.You can send it any photo shop to soften your pic.

    My advise is save up your money and use photoshop to do it. Photoshop has more control over it. If you use softerner A or B you cannot revert back to normal after taken it.

    Hi there,
    I do agree with lsl03.Please do save up your money better than you getting all this filter.All the photo shop can do your image by softening by machine.
