    Default Emolux Filter

    Hi,

    Anyone knows anything about emolux filters? Is it a reputable brand? Can't seem to find much about that brand on google.com.

    Appreciate if you could answer my query, thanks!

    Did some more research on the brand.

    Interestingly it is a product of a Singapore Company with manufacturing in China.
    For more details - SGCosmos

    Currently, I cant find any reviews for the filter, it may not be in the radar of most reviewers. It might be good if we can try and publish our own reviews

    But as such, so far, so good.

    I'm bringing this old thread out.

    I bought the EMOLUX 58mm UV filter for $20 from Parisilk at Holland V. Screwed onto the canon EF 55-250 IS lens, when i wanted to take it out, i had a hard time unscrewing it. Completely un-smooth screw thread.

    Agree, i was using a Emolux 52mm UV. Its has a un-smooth thread, screwing and unscrewing takes sometime.

    What do you expect if you get it for free? Somebody wanted to get rid of it, quickly...

    Most filters matter in the moment you take the picture. Then you'll see whether the results make you feel 'emo' or not. But yes, cheap filters with unclean threads can get stuck on the lens. Not necessarily a matter of time, one turn is enough.

    If i were u I would just get a B+W one, screw it on and not worry abt it. B+W is the way to go

    I never believe in cheap filters.

    Physically, I can tell the difference between a cheaper and more expensive filter. But optically, i only find slight difference, mostly in the area of flare resistance, to tell the truth! :P

    I also attach the Emolux 58MM UV pretector.. I found a reflection shadow from the bulb light during I snap the picture at night. When I detach the filter, it look ok.

    Do your guy have this experience before?

    That is what happen when a uncoated filter causes flare.

    just get a B+W multicoated filter. put it on and forget about it.

    seriouly, you spend a ton of money for a good glass in the lens and you put a $20 piece of glass infront of it? the light havent reach your lens already degraded. thus IMO i believe in using a good UV filter. but the filter cost:lens cost ratio must be justifiable la.

    That's the 'emo factor' - makes you emo when you see the results
