Schneider Radiant Soft Filter Review

Hello,

I just learnt about diffusion filters & how it can create a unique look. After extensive research, I came across the Schneider 4 x 5.65" Hollywood Black Magic 1/4 Filter which I'm planning to get but also stumbled upon the new Radiant Soft features from Schneider.

My question is that has anyone used the new Schneider Radiant Soft on productions or for Youtube videos. I found some videos but nothing is showing a clear strength comparison or reviews for this filter.

Could you let me know what are your thoughts & which one would be suitable for indoor or outdoor environments. I'm shooting on A7SIII & FX9 with either the 85mm or 40mm.

There are many diffusion filters, but you need to find the one that works best for you. I haven't personally used these filters, but I heard a lot of positive feedback about Schneider 77mm

I sent Roy a link to this hopefully he is not too busy to reply. I think he was in early meetings this morning.
