About Heliopan

The UV filter, also known as a haze filter, is not only an excellent universal filter for visually improving photographs with all film types, but it can always stay on the lens for protection from dust, fingerprints, moisture, etc. and for use under extreme conditions It absorbs the short wave portion of the spectrum so under hazy conditions a clearer reproduction of the scene is possible. The loss of sharpness caused by UV rays and the bluish tones common in infinity scenes are eliminated with the colorless UV filter. An exposure correction is not required.

Absolutely top-notch filter

I have this filter attached to a B+W 72-77mm step-up ring, attached to a Nikkor 18-200VR, attached to a Nikon D300. I'm very pleased with it overall. The ring mount, all in brass, is superb, the glass is as clear as can be, and so far as I can see the multicoating is very scratch-resistant, easy to clean, and does wonders in minimizing the effects of lens flare (ghosting). I really couldn't be more satisfied with it.

Oops

By

from Bagdad Az  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I gave this 5 because the Company made it right. And they did it fast. However I used ROR cleaner on it and it stripped the coating off. They sent a bottle of Giotto with the new filter. I do not know how this happened, so be careful. The filter is far better than I thought it would be

Photo enthusiast but not a pro. Replaced a damaged, but poorly constructed filter.

The Best You Can Get

By

from Redding, CA  -  Tech Savvy

For those of us that use filters for front element protection and improved image quality, Heliopan is the best you can get. Heliopan is the only filter manufacturer that only uses glass from Schott (Zeiss). The 16 layers of multi-coating transmit over 99.5% of the light to the image plane, giving you the lowest flare and greatest color saturation. The top layer on each side of the SH-PMC coated filter repels dust and moisture to help keep the filters clean. They also use only brass rings, which allow for easy installation and removal in different temperatures you may encounter in the field, unlike the less expensive aluminum or alloy rings used by lesser quality manufacturers. The old adages of "you are only as strong as the weakest link," and "you get what you pay for" applies here. After spending a lot of your hard earned cash on that lens - why would you want to degrade the image quality by using a cheap filter? It DOES make a difference. The only other filter manufacturer I would use or recommend is B&W - similar quality German optics. Don't settle for second best - you may only get one chance at that shot!

Excellent Optics

By

from Arlington, MA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Well, its kind of expensive but you don't want to put some junk on 70-200 2.8 VR Nikkor lens. Since I already pay that much on the lens, why not get an excellent quality UV filter?

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
TERRY R  Chose the highest quality filters to go with my L series glass.
Shopper  What is the thickness of the mount excluding the threaded part? Any vignetting on Nikon 16-35 lens? Thanks.
MICHAEL J J  I use the Heliopan 77mm UV filter on my Nikor 24-120mm f/4 lens. I do get some vignetting at times when at 24mm but that may be the same without the filter. I shoot a little wide and crop to deal with that. I have a slim filter for another large lens but I will never buy another Slim lens as the lens cap will not stay on with the slim filter. You don't want to be without a filter on your expensive lens. A filter has saved lenses for me twice when they were knocked over.
