Chiaro 98-UVATS77 Overview

  • 1Description

The 77mm 98-UVATS UV Filter is one of Chiaro’s highest-rated protective UV filters with 98% light transmission. It’s ideal for photographers of all levels who demand high-quality glass and other essential features for excellent image fidelity and construction.

To achieve 98% light transmission, Chiaro uses highly-polished optical glass, multi-coating, and additional advanced elements that improve the filter’s light transmission. A scratch-resistant coating minimizes scratching of the glass and helps assure that water, oil, dust, and fingerprints are removed with a gentle wipe. Its hard-anodized aluminum filter ring is designed to screw on and off effortlessly, and it is thin to prevent vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses. Side knurling helps assure that you’ll have a firm grip when attaching or removing your filter.

Image quality is what matters most at Chiaro. The company has tested and combined many features and essentials to achieve superior image quality and the highest light transmission. To help take the confusion out of selecting a filter, Chiaro prominently displays the light transmission levels so that you can choose the perfect filter for your lens and photo session.

98% Light Transmission
Protecting your lens doesn't mean you have to lose optical quality. By using highly-polished optical glass and advanced coatings, Chiaro offers a 98% transmission rate, which is an excellent transmission rate for glass. And the company verifies the ratings with ISO certified lab testing.
Resistance Coating
The layers of advanced resistance coating on the filter are designed to resist moderate scratches, and allows you to easily clean your filter. Water beads up and rolls off your filter, and oil and fingerprints can come off with a gentle wipe. Dust and debris won't adhere to the filter and can be removed with a puff of air.
Polished Optical Glass
Glass that's polished to perfection is essential to achieve a high level of light transmission. The optical glass in this Chiaro filter is highly-polished for flatness that ensures excellent optical clarity.
Multi-coating enhances light transmission to the demanding level set for all Chiaro filters. It reduces unwanted internal reflections and ghosting that can compromise your images.
UV Protection
The filter blocks UV light and reduces the bluish cast of daylight that can affect color accuracy, especially at higher altitudes.
Hard Anodized Aluminum Construction
The process of hard anodizing toughens and strengthens the aluminum for a lightweight yet durable filter ring.
Slim Design
Measuring only 3.2mm, this filter is slim enough to use on wide-angle lenses without experiencing vignetting.
Top and Side Knurling
In addition to top knurling, Chiaro added side knurling that helps offer better options to grip the filter when you're attaching and removing it, or when you're stacking filters.
Secure Attachment
It takes two full turns to mount the filter on your lens. This feature will securely hold your Chiaro filter through the most demanding photo shoots.
Front Threads
The front threads on the filter allow you to stack filters by screwing them onto your Chiaro filter.

    Chiaro 98-UVATS77 Reviews

    77mm 98-UVATS UV Filter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality i bought this filter as a replacement for a cheaper brand filter for my Sigma 150 - 600 C lens. The other filter felt as though it would cross thread too easily and the filter actually fell off when i picked up the lens. This filter is quality constructed and adds no noticeable color cast. i tried the lens with the filter off and on and see no difference. of course i was looking at the photos in Lightroom with no measurements but i'm not that concerned about it. I asked one of the sales people here in chat about the filter and he recommended it highly. The price can't be beat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love Chairo Filters. I'm a semi pro photographer for more than 40 years and ALWAYS keep Quailty filters on all of my lenses. ?Over the years I've used many different brands depending on my needs but I typically have used either B&W or Cokin.? I recently discovered the Chiaro Brand of filters from a photo magazine and after reading the article I thought I'd give them a try. ? Well they are excellent filters and a very good price. This is the 3rd Chiaro filter I've purchased and they have become my filters of choice. ?Their use of Schott glass makes them Optically perfect.? I like the fact that they rate all of their filters on the perecentage of light transmission and they do this in a big way. Most other manufacturers either don't mention it or it's a hidden specification.? The use of Brass construction makes for a much more durable filter and the slim frame eliminates any vignetting on wide angle lenses.? Finally I love the option to have both Top and Side Knurling for mounting and removing them. The Side Knurling gives me a much better grip for removal If you are looking for a Top Quality Filter at a very good price try any of these Chiaro Filters you won't be dissappointed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great cheap filter nice filter cheap and sturdy BUT it doesnt work with the voigtlander 35mm lens hood. The opening on the hood is to small to fit around the filter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid and well-constructed This UV filter has the look and feel of much higher priced competitors. It is solidly constructed and I love the knurling - or grip - on the top and sides. If you are willing to spend twice as much, you can get the UVBTS that gives you 99% light transmission with a brass ring, versus 98% transmission with the aluminum ring - but the cost-benefit ratio on this filter is high. Five stars for value and solid construction.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exceptional for the Price BUT... 43mm is kind of uncommon, but if you buy a Zeiss lens you have to live with this Chiaro filter not accommodating the Zeiss hood (the filter ring has overhang). From my limited experience (there are so many brands!) the only brand that works is B+W (expensive), or Zeiss (really expensive). Maybe B&H could give there 43mm filters a test and include the hood compliance in their product description.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from IT'S A CLEAR LENS FILTER I use this filter on my Sony 28-135mm lens using a Sony PXW-FS5. I had been using a filter with some tint to it and this clear filter, in my opinion, is much better for truer colors, IF and ONLY IF that is what you are looking for. With all of the color grading these days it is all a matter of preference. I mainly bought this filter for protection for my very expensive lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy! I am very happy with this filter. I almost purchased a canon for double the price... but I found this one and I am very happy with it!
