Greetings all,

I greatly enjoy the look of many Geoff Unsworth movies. Especially where he uses that "diffused look" in films from the 70's. I love that almost dreamlike quality that some of his movies have, along with many other European movies from the mid to late seventies. That seemed to be in vogue back then, and you just don't see that look today.

Does anyone know what diffusion filters Unsworth used? It looked like a double fog filter to me in some of his movies, with maybe a low con filter as well.

What would an equivalent filter be that Tiffen would make that could approximate that look?

It's a pity that 5254 and 5247 aren't made anymore!

Regards,
Milo Sekulovich

According to old AC issues, it was the Harrison #2 Regular Fog.
