Never point an optic at the sun without an approved solar filter on the front of the optic. For direct solar viewing, viewing the sun through an optic, or when using cameras with an optical viewfinder, ensure your filter is ISO 12312-2 (also written as ISO 12312-2:2015) certified. Never use photographic neutral density filters for direct solar viewing, viewing the sun through an optic, or when using cameras with an optical viewfinder.

DayStar Filters ULF70 overview

  • 1Description

Utilizing a spring-folded assembly design to hold it securely in place on a , the Daystar Filters 50mm White-Light Universal Lens Solar Filter allows you to safely view or photograph the sun and solar eclipses. Its filter is made of the 12312-2 ISO-certified SOLARITE film, which stops more than 99.999% of intense light, plus 100% of harmful IR and UV radiation — revealing sunspots and super granules on the solar surface. Made to fit on the front of lenses, telescopes, spotting scopes, or other optics and imaging devices, this version of the ULF can accommodate housings, sunshades, and dew shields with an outside diameter from 65-89mm (2.55-3.50"). The filter has a clear aperture of 70mm, so vignetting may occur when used on lenses and optics that approach the maximum recommended diameter in the size range.

DayStar Filters ULF70 reviews

70mm White-Light Universal Lens Solar Filter (Single, 65-89mm OD) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 112.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent buy on a budget I wanted to photograph the recent solar eclipse, but I was also pressed for money and could not purchase any high end ND or solar filters, so I took a chance and purchased this one. I read many other reviews posted by people who've used it, and the filter worked as well as expected. I had no issues with it. I did not have any image blurring or distortion. It fit snugly on my lens hood and did not shift or fall off when I moved my camera. Yes, it's cardboard, but it worked very well. For having shot my first solar eclipse, I was thrilled I found an inexpensive solar lens which I can still use for practicing and perfecting my technique.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Using the Daystar low cost filter I'm happy with this filter. I connected it to a cardboard tube that slips over my camera lens. The test pictures were OK with my Canon 70D and 300 mm lens. Still had to crop to get a good sized image. The exposures were ISO 400, F8 @ 1/100. The camera made the image orange in color but that's OK. I was able to see some sunspots too. When the upcoming eclipse becomes total, I can just slip it off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i would buy this again I wanted a solar filter for my old but reliable Phoenix 500mm f6.3 mirror lens to take pictures of the upcoming eclipse. I will probably only use the filter this one time and because price is an important factor I took a chance with this 70mm white-light Universal Solar Filter. My lens is still slightly bigger than this filter will fit so when I received it I fitted it to my lens with a rubber band and took it out to test it. Man is that thing dark! It took a while to find the sun but when I did it was simply beautiful. I took several pictures to see what speed I would use as I tend to take pictures in manual mode with this lens. I am thrilled with the outcome and confident it will serve me well during the eclipse. Yes it is cheaply made and yes it doesn't quite fit but with the rubber band it is easy to put on and it does a great job and that is all I can ask and that is why I have to give it five stars. I tested it as soon as It came because if it didn't work I would have time to find another filter. I don't need another but sometime in the future I may find one because the pictures of the sun are beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cardboard? Yup. Cheap? You bet. But IT WORKS GREAT! I bought this little throw-away solar filter kind of as a last-minute panic purchase, because I want to get some shots of the upcoming eclipse and don't have a real solar filter. I didn't expect much out of it, just hoped it would protect my lens and sensor and give me one or two passable shots. I tested it out, and I was floored. The shots look great! The detail is far better than I ever expected. You can actually see sunspots! Needless to say, I'm thrilled with this purchase, and have already recommended this filter to everyone I know who's looking to photograph the sun, whether during the eclipse or just any time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Had some trouble(which was my bad ) it worked tho I bought this for the 2017 Total Eclipse. It was on back order at first which i knew and then received it a few days after back order date had come and gone. No problem, packaged nicely as to be expected. It didn't fit the end of my lens though. 70-200 mm Tamron 2.8 older version, according to the box it has a 77mm filter size. I had read a lot of reviews that said this would fit 77mm, but it didn't, so i had to improvise. I just creased and bent the cardboard in spots that weren't in the pre determined places. I made it work it still got some pretty good pics, I guess I took a chancery buying the cheaper smaller size with the reviews i read, but it ended up being ok.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would buy it again I took this product with me to Greenville, SC to use in photographing the eclipse of 8-21-17. I was very satisfied with how it performed and very happy with the photos I got while using it. The only criticism I have of it is that it was universal size, supposed to fit all lenses, which means it doesn't fit any of them very well. It was too large for my telephoto lens, and there was no way to adjust it, so I had to wrap strips of paper towels around my lens barrel, fasten them in place with a rubber band, put the filter over them, and fasten it with another rubber band. Looked pretty unprofessional but it worked great. If the filter could be made more adjustable it would be an improvement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great Purchased for the August 21st total solar eclipse. Tested it on my Canon 70-300mm lens and it works great, very pleased with this filter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pricey but Usable Yes it's universal in the sense that if your lens outside diameter isn't too large this contraption can be bent and then taped to it - you'll have to tape it to get it to stay in place. And yes it will safely filter the sun so you can point your camera directly at the sun. However, it is just a piece of cardboard with a plastic film attached to the hole in the center. The only reason I purchased it for photographing the 8/21/17 total eclipse is because it's not too easy to find plastic film or glass with know light transmission qualities suitable for that purpose. So it worked albeit clumsily and for a one-off event using a 105 mm lens which isn't really all that suitable it was good enough.
