The Hoya 52mm 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 52mm 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the effect__ Really happy with the results it produces. two things that are somewhat of a problem is when shooting with the filter i'm getting little orbs of light in the picture. the actual star effects is intact on point light sources, but some orbs of light are spread out through the frame.......

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great filter I am a photo enthusiast using an Nikon D5300 and recently purchased and used this filter on a trip to Duluth (MN) Harbor, and the results looked really great. I'm happy with this filter based upon the dozen photos I took with it. It threads on easily and appears to be a good quality.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost meets expectations...... I purchased this filter primairly for use in creating some dramatic Christmas photos. It does that, but quite to the degree I was trying to achieve. Perhaps I should have purchased an 8-Point. However, as always the service of B&H Photo was fast and flawless...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for creating special lighting effects This filter creates nice 6-point highlights from concentrated light sources such as reflections from water or lights at night. I would rate it higher but the light loss appears to be at least 2/3 of a stop, perhaps a full stop.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great filter Have used one of these for over 20 years on my Minolta 35mm film camera, and so far with my DSLR I am getting the same great results.
