STC CineMist Filter applies special etching on the surface of the lens, causing the light to undergo subtle changes to soften the image without sacrificing detail and contrast. It is commonly used in the Hollywood film industry, to soften landscape and still life pictures, creating a vintage lens-like atmosphere.
Mainly used in portrait photo or video to express dreamy beauty, psychedelic rock, or nostalgic storytelling atmospheres. It also optimizes the texture for scenes such as Vlog interviews, personal videos, and commercial livestreams. Using Cine Mist Filter offers a "what you see is what you get" effect, directly physically optimizing the image and reducing skin flaws and defects in the early stages so less post-production will be needed. It keeps clarity in the eyes, hair, and expressions, while slightly diffusing bright reflections in areas like bright backlighting, neon LED lights from street lamps, and other highlights. This subtle softening effect gives the overall image a sensual charm. It also softens the sharp flash light.
