The UV filter from Hama is a must have for avid photographers Primarily developed to provide protection to the camera lens, the UV filter has a number of benefits. The filter protects the lens from scratches, dust and finger-marks with can be hard to clean and impair the quality of a photo. The filter can also help to make the cleaning of your camera a much easier task; a lot of camera lens’ are curved and recessed, the flat surface of the filter means that maintaining your cameras cleanliness is a more straightforward task. The protection of your camera lens can also help to increase the resale price of your camera when the time comes for an upgrade, because your lens is still in mint condition. In addition the UV filter can improve the quality of your photos. Ultraviolet rays often make photos appear pale and grey; with UV filters the photos are richer in contrast, the filter absorbs the ultraviolet rays without effecting visible light balance. The UV filter can also help to improve the clarity of the film by reducing the amount of ultraviolet light that reaches it. Because the lens is coated on both sides, minimal flare is produced when the lens is pointed towards bright light.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
As a basic lens protector they do the job fantastically; essentially a total non-fuss cheap piece of glass in front of your all business very expensive piece of glass.
After reading reviews of problems with ghosting i did a couple of test shots with the protector both on and off my 50mm prime.
Unfortunately i found the reviews to be true and i saw a significant amount of ghosting and colour degradation in the shots taken with the filter (ahem..) protector, on the lens.
In conclusion if you're not fussy about the quality of your shots then i would suggest keeping it on as a budget lens protector; after all at this price it does that job fantastically well.
However, if you are an enthusiast looking for optimum performance you may want to trade up to a premium filter or at the very least unscrew it from your lens before taking a photo!
The down side I have noticed, and this is on two different size filters I have bought from the same range and maker, Is that the threads are not smooth at all, By this I mean when you come to screw the filter on to the lens the action is very rough. Which also means that removing the filter is also tough, as when you come to unscrew the filter it's just like unscrewing a dry nut on a dry bolt, And don't forget there is no lubrication on these very fine threads, So to remove the filter can take a bit of effort. Unlike the more expensive filters I have which have very smooth silky fine threads, and are very easy to add to and remove from the lens.
But don't let this put you off if all you want is a bit of protection for you're expensive lens, then really this filter does the job and for the price it does it very well.
But if you're going to be adding and removing filters a lot, Then I suggest you pay the extra and buy a more expensive filter as it will save you time and frustration.
Last but not lest the UV filter aspect I noticed no difference with or with out the filter.
It does the trick and the shots come out near identical.
For the price it's good. There are some added reflections in some cases but because its mounted into an adaptor and not the camera; I can easily take it off if I need to in one motion.
If you want less reflections I guess you have to pay more!
From the comments:
I took 50 photos in 4 light conditions to compare the use of a UV filter to no filter and found almost no difference in the resulting image. The Canon sensor doesn't appear to be succeptable to UV.
For a more professional shot get a more expensive version of this; less lens flare.
I prefer no filter at all if I don't need protection.
It's a difficult one in term of digital cameras these days.
Indeed. I was looking for protection and, at the same price as the protection filters, this made sense.
Since you have the same camera as me I can tell you that you might notice a difference in situations where there is bright sunlight and heavy shadows; but with a filter this cheap you'll notice lens flare before that difference.
Make sure you have an adaptor though! I forgot when I got mine; I thought this 67mm wasn't going to fit and was correct. Official ones are metal and you can get plastic one for much cheaper and it does the job.
I'll update my review with this info so maybe more people will find it helpful.
Oh and also; if you do end up using this for protection; it will obscure a very small but noticeable part if the flash at the bottom of the image if you are shooting at full wide angle.
Regarding The UV filtering effect: I think the experts in photography generally agree that the UV effect for improving photo's is negligible. For those thinking of dealing with refelection problems, I think you need to be thinking about buying a polarising filter but do your own research and check.
