Hoya A-58SKY-GB overview

  • 1Description

Due to its light pink color, the Hoya Skylight 1B (HMC) Multi-Coated Glass Filter reduces the bluish cast of daylight to produce a pleasing, warm picture tone. Wise initial investments, Skylight filters help protect your lens from dust, moisture, and scratches that can lead to costly repairs.

The filter is multi-coated to minimize reflections on the filter surfaces, which reduces flare and ghosting.

Can be left on at all times for protection
Skylight filters provide additional benefits of correction for Ultraviolet(UV) light that can register on film and videotape as a bluish cast and can obscure distant details
Used to reduce the bluish cast common with some electronic flash units

Hoya A-58SKY-GB reviews

58mm Skylight 1B (HMC) Multi-Coated Glass Filter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Creates artefacts in low light I thought my Canon 50mm f1.4 had an optical issue, and was about to take it in when I decided to try taking the filter off. Sure enough, it was the Hoya filter which was creating artefacts when shooting with a bright light in the frame. This was especially noticeable at night. For instance, taking a photo with a street light in the frame. A ghost artefact of that light would appear on the inverse opposite side of the picture. So, if the light source was near the top right, an artefact would appear at the bottom left. This phenomonem was only noticeable at night, so shooting with this filter during the day is great. Bottom line: this is NOT a 24/7 filter for the Canon 50mm if you plan on ever using it in low light situations...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than more expensive filters If you search the internet, you will find a Polish web site that tested many different brands of UV filters for UV absorption using a spectrophotometer, as well as resistance to flare/ghosting, quality of construction, and ease of cleaning. The Hoya HMC filters came out on top, ahead of some far more expensive German filters. Digital cameras don't need UV filtration, but film users such as myself still need it. I prefer the skylight to plain UV filters as the extra bit of warming takes off the edge of some films such as Kodak Ektar 100 which I feel renders a bit too blue, especially in the shadows. These filters don't noticably ghost or flare at night, and they are easy to clean. The price is also very reasonable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Filter is of the very best quality If you intend to put a protective filter on the front of your expensive lens, you would be well advised to put the highest quality Muti-coated filter on your lens. Not only will the filter protect the glass of your lens but a top quality filter such as the Hoya Multi-coated glass filter will enhance the clarity and contrast of your photos. The coatings on Hoya filters are fused to the filter under high heat. Whereas a cheaper filter my use a stick on film instead of a fused multi-coating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good to reduce blues The Skylight 1B is more effective in reducing the UV and blue than the Skylight 1A or a standard UV filter, especially at higher altitudes. It give a very slight warming effect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inexpensive and well-made All the lenses for my Pentax 645N have skylight filters for protection. I mostly shoot Fuji Provia color slide film and I find a Skylight 1B helps reduce any blue/purple casts in certain light conditions. I use Hoya filters a lot, they are inexpensive and of good quality. Not much to go wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what the doctor ordered I take many outdoor shots and have always used a polarizing filter. I never considered a skylight filter until I read some reviews on your page. The color balance was noticeable immediately. This will save me many hours with photoshop correcting these issues. For that alone I thank you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from worth the purchase I keep this filter on my zoom lens, not only did it do a great job, it saved my lens when it got hit. The filter broke but protected the lens. I bought this replacement right away!
