Hoya B-77CS-GB reviews

77mm 4x Cross Screen Star Effect Glass Filter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adds interesting effect I purchased this filter to shoot Christmas lights/candles but can be used when you have any point light source(s) in your image, i.e. specular reflections off of water. It also softens the image somewhat which may be useful for portraiture. It is a special effects filter that I won't use often but it can add an interesting effect to make the image different. It's nice to have in the bag. Shooting into bright light reduces contrast. The best star effect occurs when the light source is against a darker background. You rotate the filter to obtain the star orientation that is most pleasing for your image.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice effect... Not to be overused! It's always better to do things the correct way in the first place. Some of you might say, I can just add the effect in Photo shop. Well, you certainly can. But you can also change the exposure in Photo shop, and it just doesn't turn out the same way as if you would have changed the exposure on the camera at the time that you took your picture. Like I said, this is a great product, but not to be over-used. You can adjust the direction of the rays of light by how you turn the filter on your lens (which is nice). The problem with that is when you turn it, it is no longer fully attached to your lens (I don't care about that, but I know some people would, so just FYI). Good price and build quality for how often it will be used. No complaints, nor regrets!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Filter! This filter worked a lot better than I thought it would. Purchased it to create a star effect during weddings. Really love it! Great buy for the price!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Can't orientate Another 4-star I bought ages ago was in two parts. A threaded base to mount to the lens and a rotating element to orientate the star effect to the angle of my choosing. To achieve the orientation of my choice, I must not screw the filter all the way on, then loosen it or tighten it to orient the angle of the effect. I guess that is what happens when you buy the less expensive filter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Effect This is my first time using such filter. It produces great effect for city landscape night shot, fire works and product shot to give the clean-shining effect. The result is fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Filter I like the 4-star filter. Have a couple 8's and they are a bit much, 4 looks natural.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great filter at a good price! I use this filter primarily for wedding photography but it's also great for night shots where there are dominant light sources available. It adds a four point star to candles, lights and anything highly reflective for a dramatic little extra in any given picture. I have been using Hoya filters for almost thirty years now and it is the filter brand I most prefer. I have been buying from B&H for almost as long and they are always competitively priced and ship quickly.
