Why should you get a Haze (UV) filter? The benefits include correcting Ultraviolet (UV) light which may cast a bluish tint to your images and obscure distant details, and protection of your front lens element.

The UV-Haze filter will improve your images when photographing mountain and marine scenes, where increased haze threatens to make your photographs indistinct in color and clarity. Be aware that this filter reduces Ultraviolet (UV) haze, and not haze related to other reasons like smog.

Photographers tend to debate the protection aspect of UV filters. Some say it will degrade an image to a certain extent and can increase the likelihood of lens flare. These are legitimate concerns that can be minimized with a quality lens filter. If the scene you are shooting doesn't present UV haze concerns, the filter most likely isn't doing anything to improve your image.

Hoya has designed the Pro-1 filter with these problems in mind. They applied 12 layers of Super Multicoating to the surfaces of this filter to produce an average transmission of 99.7%. Coupled with maximum surface precision, this allows for increased resistance to flare. Monocoated filters (standard inexpensive type) do not resist flares nearly as much.

In my case I shoot quite a bit of amateur softball. Using Canon L lenses (expensive) the last thing I want is to wipe the dust off my front element and accidentally scratch it. I would much rather scratch a filter due to the difference in cost between replacing the filter and repairing the lens.

Even though the protection provided by this filter is invaluable when I shoot amateur softball, I leave it on for all shooting scenarios. I wouldn't think of doing so with a low quality UV filter.

This is a great filter to use. It is remarkable how thin this filter is. A B&W filter looks almost twice as thick! The front of the filter is threaded, and can accept a typical lens cap. The front edge of the filter is also cross hatched to make it easier to remove. There isn't much to grab from the sides of the filter ring. The glass itself is thin, very thin. You need to see it, to believe it.

since the filter ring is so short however, there aren't that many threads on the front of the filter glass. IE, not great for stacking filters. Then again, you really shouldn't be stacking them to begin with...

I have read time and time again about the golden rule of not putting a cheap UV filter on any half-decent lens. The basic reasoning makes sense I suppose. Lens manufacturers spend thousands of pounds trying to eliminate reflections on lens surfaces - especially now that digital SLRs are the norm. The reason for this is that stray internal reflections from lens surfaces can play havoc with DSLR image quality.

The general principle, as I understand it, is that the more you pay for your lens filter, then the better the clarity of the filter glass and the better the anti-reflective coating on that glass.

When I first took the Hoya SHMC Pro-1 UV out of its protective case, the first thing that struck me was how amazingly non-reflective the glass surfaces were. It was kind of weird, like they were "black hole-ish". I knew that the surfaces were there - it was just really weird to see zero reflection from a glass surface. So top marks then to Hoya for the quality of their SHMC Pro-1 anti-reflective coating. Very impressive indeed.

Another reason I opted for this particular model of filter is that it is very slim in terms of its depth. This can be especially important to APS-C format lenses which (generally) can be quite prone to something called vignetting. Vignetting is visible in your shots as a darkening of the image corners. It is especially noticeable in clear blue sky shots. I actually find it quite attractive and I personally think that too much fuss is made about it. That said, you don't want to buy a filter that makes what might be a subtley attractive characteristic into an obvious problem. And that could, I say could, happen if you buy wider filters.

This filter has been the only one that doesn't cause a difference in my images versus not using a filter! Any extra glass has got to make some difference but I can't see any visible difference when using this besides that it eliminates the haze when needed. Perfect protection filter to leave on all the time! All the other UV filters I've used really diminish the quality of the images!!!

This is a fantastic line of filters. Great light transmission, thin, threads on both ends. Too bad Hoya is discontinuing the Super HMC Pro 1 line of filters.
