Black Supermist diffusion filters softens the fine detail and reduces the contrast, but are more subtle than a standard Supermist with less lightening of shadow areas. They still have the same effect of causing lights to bloom and halate depending on the density of the filter.
Black Supermist remains Formatt Hitech’s most popular diffusion filter, giving a modern cinematic look on a wide range of cameras from Blackmagic Pocket to Arri Alexa and Sony Venice.
Made using a unique process of a resin matrix between lapped and polished Schott B270i Optical glass the Black Supermist has industry-leading performance and clarity.
Come tu mi vuoi from Antonio De Rosa, AIC-IMAGO on Vimeo was shot with Formatt Hitech Black Supermist 1/4 and Aputure LS 120d.
On-Camera diffusion is a wonderful tool for removing the ‘digital’ look of modern-day cameras. A mild diffusion filter is very often the choice of Cinematographers because it flatters the skin tones of actors. Formatt Hitech having been making a range of diffusion filters for the last two decades.
They have a significant advantage over using vintage optics in that they can be reliably repeated across cameras and lenses. They are also more versatile with modern lenses and the effect can be added instantly, but also removed, giving a filmmaker more flexibility. The wide range of density also allows for a Cinematographer to dial in just the right amount of effect on set.
While it is true many effects can be added in post-processing, this is a slower and often costly exercise. With a filter, you are getting instant onset feedback giving the Director and the Cinematographer the ability to bake the effect into the image. Optical filters also interact with what is actually there, without the need to do complex grades and use tracking nodes, they give an instant representation of the lights within a space and interact with them in an organic analogue way.
