The Glimmerglass is the first Series of filters with a ‘psychological edge.’” Tiffen has developed the Glimmerglass Series of filters for “making people look their best.” A new type of diffusion filter, the Glimmerglass subtly softens fine details in a unique manner, while adding a mild glow to highlights. As contrast is also reduced, the look is one of enhanced beauty. This filter comes in a variety of strengths, the lower number gives a more subtle effect while as the higher numbers give more pronounced effect. A first in this field is the fact that the filter is both effective to look at as well as to look through. The filter has a distinct silver sparkle that has been found to be doubly useful. When production starts and people see the glittering on the front of the lens, they become more confident in the knowledge that the filter is working for them and they may also turn in a better performance.

I love the way it diffuses the bright light sources in the frame and gives it a beautiful glow. When shooting in low light, Glimmer Glass, in my experience, creates a slightly more pronounced glow than the Soft F/X and Pro Mist diffusers. It doesn't have the disgusting kidney shaped blobs that show up in out-of-focus highlights when using Tiffen's Digital Diffusion either. The GG definitely adds some magic to your bokeh. A great diffuser for night exteriors, live band performances, even some dreamy wedding stuff. I typically use the #1 for 50-135mm lenses and a #3 for anything wider than that.
