Hoya XD77UV overview

  • 1Description

The Hoya 77mm Ultraviolet (UV) Pro 1 Digital Filter is a wise initial investment. It helps protect your valuable investment from dust, moisture and scratches, which can lead to costly repairs.

Digital camera CCD or CMOS sensors are highly susceptible to reflections. This stray light can ruin your photographs with flare and ghosting. Hoya Digital Multi-Coating reduces any internal reflections, which means a clearer image with greater contrast.

A UV filter not only minimizes the bluish cast sometimes found under daylight conditions, but is also the best available protection against accidental damage to the front element of your lens. A lens that accidentally gets dropped on its front element while hiking can potentially be saved by purchasing this item. Some people refer to it as "cheap insurance".

As a lens protector, it should be left on at all times. Aside from that more-than-significant benefit, UV filters render your photos clearer and sharper. For those who enjoy outdoor photography, especially distant vistas, a UV filter can produce a more distinct and acceptable image by removing much of the blue tint normally associated with atmospheric haze.

The advantage of most Hoya filters is that Hoya puts, at least, one layer of anti-reflective coating on each side of their glass. It is not bare glass. Even if the glass is not multi-coated, this kind of production tends to minimize flare and ghosting. Digital Multi-Coating takes this protection to a higher level.

Hoya is one of the largest manufacturers of glass in the filter industry. In collaboration with its parent company, Tokina Optical, Hoya continues to strive to produce some of the best glass on the market. Currently, they hold 40% of the world's market for optical glass.

Note: Pro 1 Digital filters are ultra-thin, but have a front thread.

Digital Multi-Coated
Digital multi-coated filters greatly reduce the appearance of lens flare and ghosting caused by internal reflections that can be a problem with CCD and CMOS sensors
Black Almite Frame
Filters feature a black matte aluminum, satin-finish almite frame, which reduces reflections
Black Rimmed Glass
These filters are equipped with black rimmed glass to reduce the chance of light reflecting off the edge
Low Profile Frame
Ultra-thin filter frames, which help to avoid vignetting on super wide angle lenses, are also designed to hold a lens cap
Knurling Edge Frame
These filters are equipped with a straight knurling edge for non-slip, easy attachment and removal
UV Protected Case
Filter cases are UV protected, which further lengthens the life of filters
If desired, it can be left on the lens at all times, for protection

    Hoya XD77UV reviews

    77mm Ultraviolet (UV) Pro 1 Digital Filter is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 189.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great filter, and good value It looks and feels like a good filter. I haven't had it for too long so I can't really comment on how easy it is to clean or how durable it is. After a few quick comparisons with and without the filter, I can't tell much of a difference, and that's a good thing. And it is labeled as UV(O) which is better than Hoya's UV(C) which is cheaper and lower quality/durability. which, if I vaguely remember, means the UV effect is mostly in the glass (O for optical?) as apposed to the effect being mostly in the coating (C for coating?); though fundamentally regular glass does block a bit of UV light, so the O or C marker could mean something completely different.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As GOOD as it gets for a UV :) Performance, Quality, VALUE, Low Profile in fact it is the same low profile as my Heliopan UV SH-PMC Multicoated ES 77mm ... AND, I feel it is as good. The Hoya also has these ridges on the edge to help hold it to put it ON and OFF. You can spend more , but I don't think you will get more in a UV. and yes, I can use my Nikon Lens caps on my 24-70mm f2.8 and 70-200mm f2.8 VRII ... and at 24mm no problem. If performance matters , look at my blog LINKs to some web reviews that will surprise you at how good it is (at any price) ... and you thought no one actually tested UV filters (I didn't) :) ... http://tourist-of-light.blogspot.com/2010/08/uv-and-polarizing-filters-test-read.html

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good filter These do their job. Always remember to be very careful cleaning any dirt or grime off a multi coated filter. You can scratch the coating. I slightly scratched mine when I fell off a log and hit the front of my camera lens. Cracked the lens hood but the filter and lens stayed intact. Then I got my hat out to clean some dirt off the front of the filter and.... slight swirly scratch on the filter. Still totally usable but, lesson learned. Got this on sale too which was nice. B+W filters are always a best bet but for a little less Hoya makes a great product too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great filter I came across a website that was a few years old now but it reviewed various UV filters using a spectrophotometer. From the results they posted Hoya had the top 3 filters; the 72mm version of the Hoya Ultraviolet (UV) Pro 1 Digital Filter was tied for the top spot. I purchased the filter and have used it in a some varied conditions and I am very pleased with the results. I do see a very small increase in flare if I'm shooting too near the sun. I do not see any decrease in light or any other issues like softer images from this filter. The filter goes on and off easily. It's like there's nothing there at all. The filter also does not interfere with using a hood unlike some other filters. I bought the filter for lens protection and I plan on buying more of this filter other future lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more cheap filter I was told that UV filter is for mainly protect lens only. So it doesn't matter even i got cheap filter. Wrong! i use $20 filter On 24-105 L that came free with lens, before i buy this. Flare... flare...flare... I took that cheap filter out, no more Flares. then put on Hoya pro 1 UV filter, it is about same as no filter on. Since i got Hoya pro 1, i bought same filter whenever i got new lens. Worth the money. Don't try to save money on cheap filter. Get the nice good Filter.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good investment to protect your lenses The filter lives up to its description. The optics are clear and very thin. My only comment is that there is a gap between the filter and most lens caps because the rim of the filter is very thin. If this is a concern to you, I would not recommend a filter as thin as this. However, the cap for my Canon lens does stay on the filter without any problem. Also, the Expodisc does not stay on the filter by itself. You will need to hold it in place while using it. Again, not a big problem, but if it bothers you, you might want to not consider such a thin filter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best buy in a pro quality filter I have used Hoya Pro 1,B&W,and several lesser filters over the years.This one is tops.The lack of flare and very high light transmission + an excellent build has me sold. These are not cheap,but protect my expensive L lenses with no image degradation.They are worth the investment!
    Date published: 2008-06-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good deal I did a lot of research once I got a high end lens. I needed something to complete a weather seal on an L. The Hoya Pro 1 ranked 2nd in a cost / effect test when the filter cost $$ USD. When I saw the B&H price for this filter, it was a no brainer. Its all they say it is. Put it on and forget about it forever. I will never need to give it another thought after writing this review. It seems invisible to my sensor and photo's.
