- Produces a softening of the image while maintaining a sharp focus in the center of the image
- Fine concentric lines are etched on the surface of the filter to produce this effect
The Hoya DUTO Diffuser filter has fine concentric lines etched into the glass to create a softening effect that results in a sharp center and gradually fades out of focus toward the outer edges. Different from the Diffuser filter because the center of the image remains sharp whereas the Hoya Diffuser filter creates an overall soft look.
The DUTO Diffuser filter is helpful when:
Subject is in the center of the frame
“Softening” the outer areas of a portrait while the center remains sharp
Commercial / Product Photography with an emphasis on the center of the frame remaining sharp
