Hoya S-58STAR6-GB overview

  • 1Description

The Hoya 58mm 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 58mm 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-58STAR6-GB reviews

    58mm Star-6 Filter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Fun Special-Effects Filters I have had a lot of fun with this filter. It works best on single points of light. It doesn't like flourescent lights, or even lamps with shades. However, it is great with a sunset, candlelight, street lights, headlights. Whatever light source is available, this filter will throw a 6-pointed star around it. The most fun I've had yet was at the Smithsonian Gem Collection. I could catch the light off the jems and make stars with the filter. Lots of fun. Definately a worthwhile purchase. I bet it would be great in night-time Las Vegas!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Magic Touch I carry this in my camera bag for any night shots involving street lights, or sunrises and sunsets. It makes an ordinary photo into a spectacular one.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It Works I thought that this filter would allow me to rotate it once fully screwed on. It doesn't. You can still adjust, but it won't be on 100%.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun accessory! A great way to add dazzle to lights and to make sunlight on water sparkle in photographs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Effect! I opted for the 6 point Star Effect simply because it gives more sparkle than the 4 point but I felt the 8 point was a little too much. It fits my camera perfectly and adds a nice touch to photos with any kind of lighting that you would like to draw attention to.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hoya filters are a great value. I have used Hoya filters for years and have never been disappointed. I bought a new lens and needed a new filter (mm size), and so far this Hoya star-filter seems to be no exception to the rule. It is good quality at a reasonable price for use by an occasional and amateur photographer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Filter Does a nice job adding the star burst to the shot. I might want to add the 4 point filter as well. Sometimes 6 Points is a bit much and draws too much attention when there are several points of light.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 6 Point Star Exactly what I was looking for. Pronounced in low light. Much better than the less expensive ones available on other websites.
