Shoot first, ask questions later.
Filters are an essential part of your
photographic equipment. They help you to correct or embellish the colors of a
scene, put people or objects in the center of attention, bring out the
beautiful contrast in a stormy sky or make that wedding picture extra romantic.
In short; no photographer either professional or amateur can do without lens
But to manipulate the color, you'll
need one filter for every possible correction, if you want to apply it to only
part you'll need graduated or spot center filters, you'll need soft-focus and/or
motion blur filters for the romantic shots, a polarizer to bring out the clouds;
the more flexible you want to be with your filters, the more of them you need to
drag along with you.
And let's not even start about the
hassle of constantly screwing on and off those filters; the last thing a
photographer wants is to spend valuable seconds or even minutes when the perfect
shot is disappearing right in front of your eyes.
With FilterOptix™, you can shoot first
and ask questions later. Frame that perfect shot, push the shutter button and
worry about using the right filters later.

a filter dial to rotate and move the filter. Use custom gradient

16 different effects
FilterOptix filters are created from "effects". These effects are the
basic building blocks of most of the filters common in photography. With
15 of these effects supplied and eight effects in each filters, you can
create any filter you need.
Mask effects let you limit the areas to which effects are applied. In
FilterOptix, "split field" is a mask effect that can be applied just as
easily to a colored filter as it can be used on a polarizer, soft-focus
or gradient color. Any mask effect can be combined with any other effect
and you can use multiple mask effects in a single filter. Want a filter
that softens the top and zooms into the bottom? With FilterOptix you
Special effects are often used to accentuate parts of photographs; to
create a mood and evoke emotion in the viewer. You'll be glad to know
FilterOptix comes complete with a set of the most common special effects
The stars effect creates light stars of any size, type or
style you want. Control the number of lines, the density, the
brightness, the sharpness or width of the star, how sensitive to light
the effect is and much more.
FilterOptix comes with a set of optimized blur effects. Motion blur
(along a line), radial blur (along a circle) and zoom blur (radiating
from a spot) are all included.
The blur effects work fast and precise, even with 16-bit color depth!
Soft-focus smoothes the skin of human models and provides a romantic
Close-up zooms into the image. In itself not much use, but combined
with mask effects you can distort perspective in many subtle ways. Make
your images flatter or deeper at will, bring attention to any spot you
want or create distorted perspective for funny pictures.
Infrared filters are hard to do digitally, but FilterOptix
comes supplied with effects which successfully simulate the effect of
both these filters for most common cases. You'll be surprised by how
well it works!
Obviously, the list doesn't end here. There's also a polarizer, a
soft-focus effect which you've already seen in the wedding picture
above,, black & white (works great with color gradients) and exposure,
an effect that increases or decrease exposure to combine with other
