Our diffusion filters soften and spread a light beam and reduce the contrast ratio between highlight and shadow areas.

Diffusions are used to spread a projected beam of light over a subject. As the light is diffused over a larger area, shadows will be reduced and some loss of light may be seen. The stronger the diffusion, the greater and more even the resultant spread of light will be. Diffusions can also be used to smooth out beam edges in tight spaces or when lighting cycloramas.
Our Zircon diffusion filters offer three different strengths of diffusion specifically designed for LEDs. The 180-micron base is ideal for use on panels and can be used close to the LED chips to blur the pixels.
Made of a waterproof, reinforced material that can be sewn or grommeted, Grid Cloth is ideal for attaching to large frames. Offering medium to dense diffusion, it creates the effect of a shadowless light source.
LEE’s Perforated Diffusions have been specifically designed to work in conjunction with Kino Flo fixtures. They produce a soft but directional source by allowing a combination of direct and diffused light to combine, lending a unique quality to the light.
