When I was a young kid in the 1980s, I strongly recall that almost all films and TV shows seemed to use soft filters. Some of them had foggy effect, and there was not a bit of constraint in using them. It's This went on until the early 90s, then I remember things started to change by the mid-1990s, when everything I saw in TV and film gradually became sharper and more focused. The era of soft is fading away. I'm fond of living in the past and wanted to reach out. Thus, my quest for a soft/foggy filter.

Months ago, I ordered a 72mm filter set by Andoer. It comes with a pouch, CPL, Soft Filter, and Clear Filter. I purchased this set primarily for the soft filter, which just turned out to be a clear filter. Some time later, I just decided to make my DIY soft with this item.

The Circular Polarizing Filter was another disappointment. When I first tried it, I don't see the polarizing effect, such as when I'm pointing the lens on my laptop screen and turning the disk around, it doesn't black out. So I figured, it might be possible that the folks inserted the glass the wrong side - which they did! Now that I got it fixed, I tried it for outdoor use. Again, it didn't do much.

The third item, a clear UV filter, is made of high quality glass. I haven't noticed any loss of image quality or sharpness so far. This is the only good item I see in the bunch, but it wasn't the one I purchased this set for in the first place, which is the SOFT FILTER.

For soft effect, I already tried other things before going for a filter (like leg stockings and vaseline). Some cheap soft filters are like that, merely clear filters. One really has to reach up to the pricier filters to get the effect they have in mind.
