DIFFUSION

Modern Diffusion to craft your images with control

Tokina Cinema Diffusion

Diffusion filters give you creative control of your image in camera. Choose to reduce high frequency resolution, raise black levels, bloom highlights, or tailor a combination that is unique to your scene.

All diffusion filters affect three areas of your image; Contrast, Halation, and Resolution.

Tokina Cinema has analyzed data from thousands of feature films, commercials, TV shows, and independent productions to find the most relevant optical diffusion combinations being used today. This data has been distilled into four basic filter types that replicate the vast majority of in-camera diffusion today. Isolate the image attributes you want for creative control with confidence.

Welcome to modern diffusion technology based on real data. No more guessing. Freedom to create with knowledge.

Clear Supermist

359.00

Clear Supermist is a diffusion filter that primarily affects halation. You can control how much bloom or halation your image receives based on lighting angle and strength of light sources in your scene.

Clear Supermist made of fine clear colorless particulate that is bonded between two pieces of Schott B270 Optical Glass which exceeds 4K resolution capability. The clear particulate ranges in size from slightly smaller than a pixel to slightly larger than a pixel size to alter incoming light that creates the pleasing reduction in resolution with a primary effect on halation and some contrast.

Available in strengths of 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, and 1. The 1/4 strength is the most popular for a stronger halation effect. Halation filters are generally preferred in stronger densities to make the effect noticeable.

Black Supermist

359.00

Black Supermist is a diffusion filter designed to affect resolution in a pleasing manner by reducing high frequency details like wrinkles and blemishes in skin while raising black levels slightly to create a film-like look.

Black Supermist is made of fine black color particulate that is bonded between two pieces of Schott B270 Optical Glass which exceeds 4K resolution capability. The black particulate ranges in size from slightly smaller than a pixel to slightly larger than a pixel size to alter incoming light that creates the pleasing reduction in resolution and a slight raise in contrast. This is attributable to a “film-like” look which takes the edge off modern high resolution images and optics.

Available in strengths of 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, and 1. The lightest and most popular strength is 1/8 for a slight diffusion effect that isn’t overly noticeable by the viewer.

Black Alchemy

419.00

Black Alchemy is a diffusion filter designed to affect resolution and contrast with a slight boost of halation to light sources. This is a combination of the Black Supermist 1/8 with a variable strength of SoftRes filter depending on the strength selected. Black Alchemy diffuses in a pleasing manner by reducing high frequency details like wrinkles and blemishes in skin while raising black levels slightly and adding halation bloom to light sources.

Black Alchemy is made of fine black and white color particulate that is bonded between two pieces of Schott B270 Optical Glass which exceeds 4K resolution capability. The particulate ranges in size from slightly smaller than a pixel to slightly larger than a pixel size to alter incoming light that creates the pleasing reduction in resolution and a slight raise in contrast with bloom to highlights..

Available in strengths of 1/16, 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, and 1. This is a strong diffusion effect and therefore 1/8 and 1/4 strengths are most popular. Strengths 1/2 and 1 are reserved for a strong dramatic effect or dream sequence type scene.

SoftRes

359.00

SoftRes is a diffusion filter designed to affect resolution in a pleasing manner by reducing high frequency details like wrinkles and blemishes in skin while leaving other areas of the image unaffected.

SoftRes is made of fine white color particulate that is bonded between two pieces of Schott B270 Optical Glass which exceeds 4K resolution capability. The particulate ranges in size from slightly smaller than a pixel to slightly larger than a pixel size to alter incoming light that creates the pleasing reduction in resolution with a slight effect on contrast.

Available in strengths of 1/16, 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, and 1. Most users seek a slight almost unnoticeable reduction in resolution therefore the 1/8 strength is the most popular.
