Create a Blur with the Cokin Violet Center Spot Filter

The Cokin Violet Center Spot filter has a clear centre and diffused violet edges, which create a blur effect while leaving the centre sharp. The amount of blur produced is influenced by the f-stop and the focal length of the lens used. For example, a lens shot at f/1.4 will produce a greater blurring effect than f/8.0, and an 85mm lens will create more blur than a 28mm. Additionally, a longer focal length lens will visually increase the size of the centre spot area, as it sees less of the filter area.

How to use Center Spot

  • The shorter the focal length, the more visible the zone. As for the transition from sharp to soft, it depends on the aperture: the wider it is, the more diffuse the transition will be. For a correct adjustment with auto-focus reflex cameras, the choice of an AF central collimator is obviously required. We also recommend working with apertures of f/5.6 or f/8 in order to keep a sufficiently blurry transitional zone. A strong backlight brightens the effect of the filter.
  • UnColoured Center Spot filters create blur around the central subject in a completely natural-looking way, giving the subject prominence in the image.
  • Grey and Coloured Center Spot filters work by blurring and darkening the periphery of the image in a more or less noticeable way. The intensity and the quality of the central subject's lighting are clearly emphasized.
  • Oval Center Spot filters are made for larger or taller subjects.
