Breakthrough Photography X1-UV-77MM overview

  • 1Description

The Breakthrough Photography 77mm X1 UV Filter is a general use, clear filter designed to absorb ultraviolet light and reduce the bluish cast of daylight. Aside from the reduction of unwanted blue casts, no additional coloration or contrast is created, and adjustments to exposure are not required while using this filter. To prevent internal ghosting and reflections while providing 97.8% light transmission, each glass surface includes two layers of anti-reflection coating. This Multi-Resistant Coating (MRC) also offers greater protection to the filter substrate and helps it to stay clean for longer than with uncoated filters.

This Breakthrough Photography UV filter is constructed from Asahi glass for increased optical clarity as well as color fidelity and features a thin filter ring to minimize the potential for vignetting. It is also weather-sealed and useful as a general protective filter to leave on lenses at all times. Such filters help to reduce dust and moisture from reaching your front lens element and provide additional protection in case of drops or situations where scratching could occur.

    Breakthrough Photography X1-UV-77MM reviews

    77mm X1 UV Filter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from not very resistant to everyday use....... As a pro shooting in the field, despite using a lenshood and being careful, the front element protection, i.e. this filter, is going to be susceptible to accumulating contamination of all sorts. Compared to other filter manufacturers, B & W for example, the front coating seems 'porous' and a lot less resistant to 'damage', i.e. marks and such. It does not clean up well using careful and proven techniques. On just a three-day shoot in the field, they already have 'permanent marks'. I would NOT recommend these filters for pro/field use. Going back to my B & W's which last much longer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works with Wide Angles I keep this on my Tokina 12-24mm for protection. There is no vignetting.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality filter I'm using this over a Canon 16-35 f4 L lens. The filter appears well made, the threads are smooth, the ring is slim and there's no vignetting. The front coatings aren't obvious like some other brands (notably Hoya), but image quality is good. I also like that the filter is sealed. I'll be getting another UV in the same size for a 100-400II and it'll probably be one of the mid-line multicoated Hoyas. I'll swap them back and forth and if there's any difference in image quality, will post another review.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Filter Great filter...is very much as promised by the manufacturer...I have the X1CPL polarizer and it is just as good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good protection for the price I'm a repeat customer. I have a Breakthrough X1 UV filter on a 16-35mm lens and no issues with it. No optic impact, fits lens cap and doesn't attract dust. Very comparable performance to my heavier and costly B&H. I'm using this on a 70-200mm lens which is heavy enough. You can't have enough lens cloths as each filter comes with one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A clear, economical choice. I use this filter to provide protection to the front element of the first generation M39 Cosina/Voigtlnder 12mm f/5.6 lens when I use the accessory 77mm filter adapter. I am pleased how little it degrades the light path while doing so.
