Light effect filters are especially well suited for digital photography, because the filter effect is immediately visible.

Types of light effect filter:
  • 3-facet prism
  • 6-facet prism
  • Point lens
  • Close-up lens
  • Wiping effect
  •

    Tip:

    The filter effect strongly varies with the displacement of the aperture. Therefore the filter effect can be continuously controled by the depth of field button or if possible by using a working aperture (only for medium-format cameras).
    By rotating the filters effect against each other, adjusting the aperture and change the shooting distances arise infinitely many design variations.
