Hoya Skylight 1B Filter 52mm (£4.98 with quidco) @ Jessops

26
Found 23rd Dec 2009
£5.60
- 5% using code quidcofive (28p)
- 8% pre-vat (37p)
= £4.98 (I hope my maths is correct!)

Price vary greatly on this filer (£15-30). So 5.32 without quidco is pretty good. Even if you get it to solely to protect your lens.

52mm is a pretty standard fit I think.

I have picked up a couple, collect in store only. Jessops pricetag on filter is £22. Manager asked me how I got it so cheap!

Not going to buy as i use 58mm filter. But a good deal for hoya filter instead of buying HAMA etc from 7dayshop. Heat added.

Darn - I need 46mm - Hot deal though :thumbsup:

52mm is a pretty standard fit I think.



Used to be standard. Only Pentax has managed to keep to the 52mm (as they have with old lens compatibility). Most other makes use 58mm or 62mm now.

I would prefer a neutral UV filter as lens protector as most colour corrections can be made in camera or after processing in photoshop. Still, it's a good price for a quality filter (I am amazed what rubbish glas some ppl put in front of their expensive lenses, lol). Heat added.

I ahve 2 olympus lenses which use 52mm

although i have 7 daqy shop uv filters on mine for neutral

Have a look on the lense or the cap, but probably 58mm.

nope, it'd be too small for a standard canon 450d lens

cant find this on the jessops site

It fits the Canon 50mm f/1,8

The Canon 18-55 kit lenses are 58mm this will not fit

i was just thinking the same thing, was about to open my camera bag and check the lens so thanks for that confirmation :thumbsup:

Does this fit a DYSON DC10

Even if you get it to solely to protect your lens.


Don't - it does not do a good job at it. If you break the filter, it will scratch your lens. If you really want to protect your lens, use a lens cap.

Another reason is that the filter will produce a loss of contrast, a loss of light, and mirror ghosting. You are reducing the optical qualities of your lens for no good reason.

Cheap or not, this filter is mostly useless - certainly in the digital age.

depends on your interpretation of protecting your lens!

perhaps i was just meaning dust, bird poo and finger printers. obviously i agree that if you drop it a filter wont stop it all ending up in a big mess anyway..

sure a filter does do what you say, but it comes down to compromise between quality and effect:

Reduces the excessive bluishness that frequently occurs in outdoor color photography, especially in open shade under a clear, blue sky. The absorption peak is in the range which corresponds to the film's green spectrum. This means outstanding outdoor shots with superb color balance and clarity under all conditions. Also keeps skin tones free of colored reflections from nearby objects such as the shade of trees.

They don't seem to be showing online now, so I guess the offer might be off. :-(

Keep sniffing the glue :thumbsup:

Umm, while I'm not going to go routing through the kit bag at this time of night I'm pretty sure this was the same bit of kit I picked up a week ago for £1.40.

Perfectly good filter, interesting to use and no ghosting whatsoever. Personally I like running with UV filters on all my lenses for an extra layer of protection when shooting outdoors. Yes, a lens cap is far preferable but when you've got the cap off I'd much rather have an accidental scratch on the filter than the lens itself.
