DayStar Filters ULF50 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 50-69mm (1.96-2.71"). The filter has a clear aperture of 50mm, so vignetting may occur when used on lenses and optics that approach the maximum recommended diameter in the size range.

50mm White-Light Universal Lens Solar Filter (Single, 50-69mm OD) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 203.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from worked just perfect! So I am getting ready for the eclipse. I purchased some solar film and tryed to make my own filter for my camera. I tested it by trying to photograph the sun. It did not work. So I saw this solar filter lens and was very skeptical. It was cheaper then all the other ones that I could have purchased, but I bought it. It got here in good timing and that next day I put it on my camera to photograph the sun. Excellent lens and product! I am very excited because it worked perfectly for the shots of the sun. That being said I am ready for the eclipse!!!!! Do not pay for expensive lens when this one will probably work for your needs. Thank you B&H for the great product and service. I have told lot's of fellow photographers about the lens. And they sent 5 pair of solar glasses with it for FREE!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very cost effective! Works great. This is an affordable alternative to use during the eclipse. With such a rare vent, I didn't want or need an expensive solar filter. It folds into shape although the tabs are a little difficult to work with. I would recommend taping around it and also taping it to your camera to make double sure it doesn't fall off while looking at the sun. I have tried it and seems to work great for solar photos.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worth just about what I paid for it. Filters sun, but creates a fuzzy image. I got what I paid for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for Canon SX30IS The filter and glasses came in just a few days with free shipping. The filter fits over my Canon zoom camera with just a little looseness. I took a couple of test pictures of the sun. Looks great. Seems to work fine with the camera pointed up. I am sure some adjustments could be made for a tighter fit, but I plan to go as-is. Very satisfied with the product and B&H service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very useful Used this filter for the eclipse in St. Louis MO area. I used blue painter's tape to tape it to the lense and camera and it worked fine. I wish it would have come with some instructions ... such as: When the sun is completely covered, remove this filter to capture images of the glow around the moon. We forgot about that, and with the lense/camera perceiving total darkness, when the button was pushed to take a photo, it never clicked because of lack of light coming through. Luckily we had another camera and took photos without the filter when the sun was completely covered. We will know what to do next time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant product for Total Solar Eclipse - It did the job! Trying to find an inexpensive solar filter for my Sony DSC-H50 Digital Camera for taking photos of the total solar eclipse, I found this product online. It was cheap, and shipped to my home well before the eclipse occurred. It was easy to use, and was very effective and helped me take some photos of the eclipse (though unfortunately, I wasn't able to capture too much of the eclipse due to cloud cover at my location). But the product did the job! Very impressed. Also very impressed with B&H Photo with their service and quick shipping - didn't worry about not getting the filter before the eclipse. Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than expected This isn't perfect, but for the price it does a really good job. I wanted something to photograph the upcoming eclipse and so far this has worked well No real distortion or other issues, but then again it's a maximum light filter. It also came with five glasses for the family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Low-cost, recommended for the amateur photographer. For the price, excellent value. A low-tech solution for protecting sensor, lens, and eyes from the sun. I purchased this simple cardboard mounted filter this summer for the purpose of photographing the 8/21 solar eclipse. Tested it the week before photographing the midday sun from my driveway with excellent results. Used it on my 300mm lens to capture a time series of the eclipse a week later. No problems with the stable fit around the lens barrel. Taking my time to assemble it carefully, then transporting in tissue paper in a cubical box, never had to reassemble and am storing it for future use.
