Hoya S-82STAR6-GB overview

  • 1Description

The Hoya 82mm Star-6 Filter is designed to be used perpendicular to a point light source such as the sun, a light bulb, or a candle. Within the filter's surface is a combination of fine, etched line types that help to create a starburst effect with six primary diffraction spikes that extend from the light source.

This filter is most effective for pictures where the light source used to generate the starburst effect is a highlight with a significant degree of contrast from the rest of the image. The Hoya 82mm Star-6 Filter is constructed from optical glass for clarity as well as color fidelity, and features an aluminum-alloy filter ring for durability while remaining lightweight.

    Hoya S-82STAR6-GB reviews

    82mm Star-6 Filter is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from As advertised, not very clean look This star filter does provide the desired look but takes a lot of aperture tweaking to reduce the cross hatching. The cross hatching in the glass shows up very clear on the effect. Doesn't seem like it provides clean continuous light streaks (stars) unless you're iris is wide open, and even then you need to position lights just the right way.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I expected This star filter was inconsistent. No matter how I worked the lens and my light sources I very rarely got a full 6 star look. The star effect I did get was not flattering - in fact it took away from the photo. It even made some parts of my photos fuzzy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised I used this filter on several different Christmas lighting shoots. It gives a nice star effect on bright points of lights. If the lights are very strong, you will see a prism effect.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 6 point star is enough I think the 6 point star filter is the best value. More points may look a little better, but are quit a bit more money! At this stage in my photography, 6 points is enough!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enhance your sunsets By installing this filter you can get a whole new look when shooting sunsets. The filter does what its intended to do-create a six pointed star.
