Advantages of Mist/Diffusion Filters

It also helps cinematographer/filmmakers create a cinematic look by reducing highlights and lowering contrast. Diffusion filters are considered essential in many productions to create specific effects or simply to soften light or reduce the appearance of blemishes in the actor’s skin.
It is a particularly good fit for the “extra sharp” lenses, to break their critical focus and give them a more organic and classic look.
