Reviews and Problems with Hoya Digi PRO1 UV Filter 52 mm
Showing 1-10 of 42
Fine quality for a reasonable cost
6 January 2013
Summary: I've used Hoya filters for many years and this one seems to carry on their tradition of quality for a reasonable cost. Very thin, nice feel to it screwing it on the lens, and results typical for a skylight filter (slight warming effect, adds a bit of clarity through haze, protects the lens).
Summary: I made my first DSLR purchase and was told by friends that to get a filter to protect you lenses, so I did. Unfortunetly, they did not state to purchase a multi-coated filter. The first filter resulted in horrid flaring of my pictures. I did a little research and settled on trying this filter. What a difference - no flaring whatsoever, even when pointing to a direct light source. This filter is a MUST HAVE for your lens. Do not waste your money on a non-filtered lens.
Summary: I always had filters on my film cameras, strongly believing in the need to protect the lens, with the added benefit of UV Filtering. After reading lots about filters for DSLR's, I am convinced there is no effect on your image from the UV filter. Still, I recommend investing in this high-grade filter, because the protection it offers the lens, while adding no imprint of its own, is worth it.
Summary: I purchased this for my new Canon SX10IS, not being sure it was compatible. With a small amount of pressure it seems to have threaded itself on ok, and can still be removed and re-attached with ease, although it doesn't screw on tight, but instead continues to rotate as if the threads have been stripped.. but they haven't, which is a little weird.. Anyway this filter is fully functional, and additionally has a thin rim which helps avoid vignetting with the SX10IS lens.
Summary: This is a good product, way better than the classic ones, this helps me with flare on 50mm 1.4, a thing that the cheaper one didnt. It has a good build, thin, easy to attach, but on the bad side its hard to clean, if u stick your finger on it, you got a job to clean. its not every cloth that will work on it, because the coating sticks to the fibers of the tissue, so it doesnt slide easily. as for duration i coulnt test it yet.
Pros: Clear Optics, Consistent Effect, Firm Mount, Strong Construction
Summary: I would have given it a 5 star if it is clean, but it came with a smudge. I tried to clean it off with a microfiber cloth, but some still remains. It was not bad enough to go through the trouble to return it.
