Haida HD3704-77 Overview

The 77mm NanoPro MC Clear-Night Filter from Haida is designed to reduce the appearance of light pollution in images or video that include the night sky, and to minimize illumination from artificial light sources. This effect can be obtained when the filter is used on a film camera system with daylight film installed, or on a digital camera system with the daylight white balance setting selected.

Light pollution occurs in areas of the night sky that are above or near concentrated and intense sources of artificial light, such as cities. These sources can include streetlamps, exterior and interior lamps for commercial or residential buildings, sports and entertainment venue lighting, and brightly lit advertisements such as billboards. Together, they can result in a type of light pollution known as skyglow, where individual stars, the Milky Way, and other astronomical features in the night sky are obscured. Additionally, artificial lights clustered together can become difficult to discern individually. Light pollution from these "cluttered" sources can become a source of distraction within an image, and can resemble overexposed areas of glare.

The Haida 77mm NanoPro MC Clear-Night Filter can improve the results of nighttime images by absorbing the yellow light from sodium-vapor lamps, a common light source within urban areas. By preventing the dominant wavelengths of light associated with the color of those lamps from being recorded, the filter enhances visibility of astronomical objects. It ensures that, in the places where they do appear, artificial light sources are more clearly defined, with less glare and improved contrast.

This filter is constructed from optical glass for clarity and color fidelity. To prevent internal ghosting and reflections, each glass surface includes 10 layers of anti-reflection coatings, which also offer greater protection to the filter substrate and help keep it clean for a longer period of time. The Nano coating associated with the 77mm MC Clear-Night Filter provides an additional layer that results in an improved beading effect when the surface comes in contact with water or oil, allowing for more efficient cleaning.

An aluminum alloy ring ensures durability while allowing the 77mm NanoPro MC Clear-Night Filter to remain lightweight. A plastic case is included for storage and transport.

Great night filter.

Used this filter for the first time on a trip to England, Scotland, and Wales. Had a number of opportunities to use this filter. Shot both with the filter on and with it off my 24-120 f/4 s Nikon lens. While the images without the filter looked good I could see an improvement in the clarity of the images taken with the filter on. It seemed to do a good job of filtering out some of the ambient noise. It also adds a little color to the image that I find very pleasing changing you images from a standard night scene into something much more creative. You do have to remember to take it off when you switch to daylight shooting.

The Haida Clear-Night filter eliminated the brown haze of light pollution in my astro photographs. Just used it to capture Mars and the Milky Way and it worked. I live in a rural area without street lights, however there is enough glow in the east from nearby towns to cause problems for astro-photography. The Haida Clear-Night solved the problem.

Just found out about this filter.

Where was this hiding all this time. It improved my Astro shots by at least 40%. I don't have to go to Eastern Washington to take shots of the stars.

It works.

I tried both the ICE and Haida side-by-side. I could find no difference in optical quality, other than it was easier to MAKE the ICE flare.  This is as expected since the ICE is not coated.  Neither had any problems with flair during sky shooting, even with the inclusion of street lights. I suspect that the ICE will be harder to clean as well, again due to the lack of coatings. I did manage to get a finger smudge on the ICE after 20 filter changes during the testing. but I had no trouble cleaning it off. With the exception of a single test scenario, they both eliminated LP equally well. In that single test, it looked like the Haida had a very slight advantage. I saw no difference in the other scenes. The Haida adds a much more pronounced blue cast to the image. This is what pushed me into keeping the ICE. It is much easier to return the empty space to black with the ICE in PP.  That and it costs half as much. I really wanted to like the Haida better. Multi-coated, Nano, etc. but I just couldnt see any difference. (Im a pixel-peeper) This is an excellent resource here on B&H  9 Light Pollution Filters Tested: Do They Really Work?  I saw a much more pronounced blue cast with the Haida than they show in their results. Not sure why. The ICE does add a slight blue tint, as they say in the review. You can see in their test that the Haida handles flair/reflection much better than the ICE. Better than all the others tested. Of course their test was very extreme. I saw no difference even when shooting into a flashlight at the edge of the frame. I saw about 1/2 stop light loss for both the ICE and Haida. If you live in a light polluted area, this filter will definitely help.

Eliminates / reduces that effect of street lights

I bought this to help with taking pictures of the night sky. I have street lights really close to where I have to set up my camera along with moderate light pollution from the towns around me. This seems pretty good at blocking out most of those light sources leading to much clearer images of the night sky.

did anyone compare this Hoida filter with NiSi or Breakthrough night sky filters. Both Nisi and Breakthrough are more expensive, but is there any advantage?
Asked by: p
The NiSi is a bit better glass and slightly more correct with color than the Haida, however not by too much. If I needed to rank them I would say 1. NiSi, 2. Haida, 3. Breakthrough
