    Very important product. If you are new to the 35mm Digital Cameras, please be advised you need one of these filters for every lens you own. They are reasonably priced and provide UV protection and also provide safety to your original lens. Easy to install with screw thread mount. Check the MM of your lens and buy the correct size.

    The UV Protector Filter by Canon is just that, a protector. It is not a UV-Haze filter and will not help cut out that much UV, but it is a clear element in front of your lens that will protect it from scratches and accidents.

    It is sort of a cheap construction and feels flimsy, however I have yet to have the element fall out of the ring.

    If you are looking for a UV-Haze filter look at the B+W filter instead. But if you just want lens protection, this'll do.

    UV Filter for G1x

    Pros

    • Firm Mount
    • Strong Construction

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • UV Protection

      Comments about Canon 58mm UV Protector Filter:

      critical to have for this camera since it has no shade and the front element is right at the edge. The downside is that you MUST buy a step ring mount that then does not allow for the shade. So there is a downside to this product when using it on the G1x. I use many of their other Filters for my pro cameras.

          Comments about Canon 58mm UV Protector Filter:

          I just splurged on a 50mm/1.4 lens, and wanted to think that I was taking all precautions to protect it.

          This filter looks like it's doing a good job at it, but I don't think I'll truly know or understand it's benefit until something happens.

          It's like nice, inexpensive insurance. It was easy to put on, stays on, and does not affect the quality of images.

            Excellent choice for a Canon camera as you know it will be compatible.
            The filter fits easily on the primary camera lens and the protection is really important both from the perspective of glare and safety. I just returned from a trip where I fell and hit the ground camera first. My old Canon UV protection filter broke but it protected the camera lens.

            Comments about Canon 58mm UV Protector Filter:

            I like using filters from the same brand as the lens', to keep the same refraction index - not sure if it makes that much of a difference, though.
            This one is well made, but a bit expensive.

                              this filter does what it's supposed to do, cut out the glare and protect your several hundred dollar lens. especially if you shoot on the go in all sorts of environments, this is a must. have several items from B&H, and they always get the product out fast, I've had some shipping notices within hours of ordering.

                                I typically look for the best value and try to save a few bucks but in this case I stuck with Canon to make sure I had great quality. Glass is one of those things that can make or break a photo. Why put a cheap filter on an expensive lens? Pics are only as strong as the weakest link. Great filter.

                                  I used this with my Canon 50mm f1.4.

                                  I thought I'd be saving a little bit of money by buying this instead of a higher quality UV. I ended up being very wrong. I stupidly bought this and used it the day of for a gig. Every highlight ended up being duplicated rotated 180° and turned green. This is an indication of a bad UV filter. I ended up taking the filter off and just shooting with no protection.

                                  DO NOT TRY TO SAVE MONEY BUYING THIS. Buy a Hoya filter or go to some other alternative. You will regret using this filter!

                                      I ordered an aftermarket version that did not fit my threads for my Canon EOS. Shame on me for not sticking to the Canon brand. This one fit perfect (of course).

                                        A friend recommended that I purchase a filter not only to enhance the photo taking process but to protect my lenses. I have to commend B&H because I first ordered the wrong lens. They handled the exchange and getting me my proper filters in a matter of days. Just another reason I purchase all my camera equipment from B&H Photo!
