    Lighting can be enhanced in ways that go beyond what exists in nature. Star filters create points of light, like stars, streaking outward from a central light source. This can make lighting within the scene take on a more glittering, glamorous appearance. This effect is produced by a series of thin lines etched into the flat optical surface of a clear filter. These lines act as cylindrical lenses, diffracting light points into long thin lines of light running perpendicular to the etched lines. Lines on the filter positioned horizontally produce vertically oriented star lines. The size and brightness of the star lines produced are first a function of the size, shape, and brightness of the light source. You have additional control through the choice of a particular spacing between the lines on the filter. Generally these spacings are measured in millimeters. A 1mm spacing has twice as many lines per unit area as a 2mm spacing. It will produce a brighter star for any given source. Spacings offered generally range from 1mm to 4mm, as well as both narrower and wider for specialty effects. The number of directions that lines run in determines the number of points produced. Lines in one direction produce a two-pointed star, just a streak through the center of the light. There are 4, 6, 8, 12 and more points available. With an 8 or 12 point filter, the many star lines will tend to overpower the rest of the image, so use them carefully. Although the more common types have a symmetrical arrangement of points, they can also be obtained with asymmetric patterns, which tend to appear more natural, less synthetic.

  • Vintage product with no book value, because it could come from a 80's inventory... but it works well
    By BRUEGEL on 08 September 2018

    Well, it could have been difficult to give an overall rating.
    Pros :
    - cheaper than in my country ;
    - very fast abroad delivery ;
    - the filter is solid and works well ;
    - Amazon customer service was very helpful to fix the issue mentioned below (I got a total refund).
    Cons :
    - insufficient postal packaging to protect against mishandling ;
    - no plastic box provided to protect the filter ;
    - astonishing filter, because I think that it was actually built in the 80's.
    But now I have a collector !
    Have a look at the photo and guess where I was born and where I live... very easy... it's the world's most beautiful city !

  • Fantastic filter, highly recommended. I love it!!!
    By James C. on 21 January 2017

    I used this on a Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 and a Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 in low light rock band photography. The quality is stunning!!! I get tack sharp images you'd expect from Nikkor lenses, and this filter makes awesome effects with the stage lighting. This is also fantastic for nighttime street photography, making undesired street lights a special part of the composition.

    By Amazon Customer on 31 March 2018

    I couldn't get it to work without seeing the actual grid on the photo. I've use a star filter before, and never had that problem. Spent hours trying different settings, but still can see the grid, even after researching online. Shouldn't be this difficult.
