Supermist filters come in three main types Black Supermist, Clear Supermist and Warm Supermist.

They are a classic cinematic filter which has been in production for three decades. They have become a staple and often essential filter for many cinematographs working within Films, TV, music videos and advertising.

The Clear Supermist diffusion filter is the ultimate softening tool for creating a feeling and a mood be it indoors or outdoors. The Clear Supermist excels in reducing excessive sharpness of some modern cameras and optics flattering all complexions and skin types. The filter moderates contrast lightening shadow areas without becoming distracting to the image. The filter also causes bright specular highlights to diffuse and smooth out, giving a subtle halo effect to windows and strong light sources.

When used at a low density such as 16th or an 8th strength, the effect is very subtle lightly smoothing skin and causing a soft blooming of lights. The highest densities, such as a 1 or a 2, are ideal for effect shots such as dream sequences or abstract work with heavy halation of the light and extreme smoothing of textures.
