Overview

The DIFFUSER No1 is a creative filter in the HOYA's soft filter line-up that offers a unique kind of soft effect through creating an overall very slight unsharpness in the photo, softening the highlights and removing edge sharpness without reducing the contrast.

A unique technology

The surface of the HOYA DIFFUSER No1 has an irregularly uneven pattern achieved by roughening the glass surface through spraying hydrogen fluoride using a special masking plate.

Video

Using the HOYA DIFFUSER No1 is an excellent opportunity to try out a new soft-effect style. The filter especially excels in portrait for softening skin tones and commercial photography, but can be used in video production too according to the creator's intentions.
