Haze(UV) filters are wise initial investments. They help protect your valuable investment from dust, moisture and scratches, which can lead to costly repairs. If desired they can be left on the lens at all times for protection. Haze filters provide additional benefits of correction for Ultraviolet(UV) light which can register on film and videotape as a bluish cast and can obscure distant details. Ultraviolet filters allow you to correct for the UV effect to varying degrees. Haze-1 filters absorb approximately 71 percent of UV.

Canon 2605A004 reviews

58mm Haze UV-1 Glass Filter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 103.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from necessary accessory The Canon Haze UV-1 filter is a well-made piece of equipment. Glass filters are preferable to plastic where it concerns clarity and longevity of the product. Glass is also less likely to scratch than plastic. In the sunny, sometimes windy and dusty environment here a Haze UV filter should be a necessity for anyone with an expensive camera. My son is pleased there is such a nice UV filter available for the G9. He does wish, however, that there was a cover or cap avilable for the back of the adapter to prevent dirt and moisture from collecting on the inside of the filter when the unit has to be removed from the camera.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from bad side-effects I bought this filter to protect my glass. I have a problem with reflection off of the back of the filter causing ghosting. I have this problem when there is a strong light in the frame of the shot. From what I've gathered, and from what I've seen, this ghosting occurs when light is reflected forward off the digital sensor. The light then is reflected back to the sensor off the back of the filter. This gives a ghost of the strong light source that is upside-down and backward from the source itself. If you're shooting film it shouldn't be a problem, (since there's no reflective sensor, just film) but it has caused distortion with my digital Canon 30D. Some shots were interesting, but some were ruined. I use a Canon 50mm f/1.4 USM on my 30D and the setup works fantastic without the filter: no ghosting what-so-ever! NOTE: A friend tried this same lens with this filter on his Canon 40D and reports no ghosting. I think the 40D sensor must be improved and less reflective. (?) The ghosting is more pronounced in the photo than in the viewfinder since the mirror (to the viewfinder) moves out of the way when the shot is taken and the reflection off of the sensor is unobstructed. That being said, I have been able to see the ghosting in my viewfinder in some cases. Also, I get the same problem with a Canon 72mm UV filter on my zoom lens (Canon 28-135mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS) but it's less pronounced. I only noticed it after trying to re-create the problem. Again, the ghosting was entirely eliminated by removing the UV filter In the end I would recommend getting a lens hood for protection rather than this filter, especially if using a 30D with a prime lens.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits/protects well Mainly bought this filter for lens protection on my Canon 70-300 IS/USM lens. Works great so far!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from An okay filter I think I was expecting too much from this kind of filter. I'd noticed that the colors in my photographs weren't as I was seeing them when I was outside (it was because I was always wearing sunglasses). I bought this filter expecting to get the same performance from it that I get from my sunglasses and it just doesn't get there. I'm not disappointed that I bought it, though. It DOES boost the color and diminish haze as it is supposed to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must! I am a wedding and portrait photographer. Having a filter like this is so important as it protects my lenses. A small investment for the service it provides! The only trouble I have is that it unscrews off at times. I have filters on 4 other lenses and never have troubles with those ones, so it must have to do with the size of the lens. Still I would rather get in the habit of checking that it is secure than to go without.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Filter Protects New Lens! Thank goodness I ordered this new filter as I first used it at the beach in NC. Though I was super careful about not letting sand get anywhere near my camera, the lens filter still had some sand crystals on it. With a quick wipe of the lens cloth everything was A-OK! My new 70-300mm lens was just perfect due to the protection of this filter... also, no haze/glare showed up on any of my beach photos!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A MUST-HAVE If you own a Canon EOS system, don't bother wasting your time trying to decide whether or not to get this filter; JUST GET IT. I've left mine on the lens the entire time. The added protection for the lens provide peace-of-mind and a great (simple) way to protect your glass investment. Hem and haw, if you insist, at other filter/accessories but just add this one to your cart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from glad I had this on my camera I got one for each of my lenses on my new Canon digital SLR to protect the lens and I am glad I did. I was taking a self timer photo with the camera on a tripod when all of a sudden a strong wind blew and toppled the tripod and camera hit the ground lens first. It cracked the glass of the filter, but the camera and lens was undamaged.
