I bought this filter specifically for taking portraits with my SLR, and I'm quite happy with it. It gives your photos an overall soft focus look, not so much that it looks cheesy, but enough such that family photos take on a more flattering effect, with less noticeable winkles, softer shadows, etc. As with all diffusers and softeners the overall contract of your photos is reduced. Paired with the right lighting, it produces beautiful portraits and still life or abstract shots (such as floral closeups).

Hoya as a brand was recommended to me by a trustworthy friend who's an advanced amateur photographer. It's made in Japan with high quality glass for an affordable price. The filter feels solid in my hands, with enough of an edge that putting it on the lens and taking it off is a piece of cake. I am one satisfied user and look forward to years of use out of this filter!

This diffusion filter appears of good optical quality and threads fit onto the lens easily and remain in place. The diffusion filter is useful for slightly blurring the detail on a subject without necessarily having to change your camera settings. One of the most common uses may be in portrait photography where you may want to gently smooth some of the lines or wrinkles on your subject.

Tried it on wildflowers on a really sunny day. The photo came out a bit blurry, but it could have been the wind causing the flower to move. I couldn't really tell too much difference with using this filter, but maybe the effect is supposed to be subtle? Got more exploring to do with this diffuser filter to really get a good idea of what it does and how important it may be.

This is a soft focus filter. I did a portrait shoot and found the softening too much. It blurs most of a person's features. It greatly reduces contrast. I suggest trying this filter with landscapes, like an early morning dew. But I would not use it again for portraits.

Does the job and is affordable, adds a soft touch and slight glow, not majorly dramatic but enough to add something extra to a portrait. A more affordable option for those wishing to try a soft focus filter out.

I was expecting the effect to be a little stronger. With this filter, it's rather subtle. If you want a strong diffusion effect you're probably better off stretching pantyhose over your lens, or smearing vaseline on a cheap UV filter. Maybe the effect could be better if I stacked them?

Still, the shipping was prompt. Hoya's filters always thread easily and I'm usually not let down by their build or quality. This filter, as Elly H said, gives your photo a nice soft look and removes some of the contrast. It's a bit of a novelty effect but for $15 it's pretty fun to play around with.
