Review of JYC Filter
Hi all, as I had been asked many times about the JYC filter performance and sample photos in mass sale thread. I decided to do a simple review. Please let me know what else you would like to see in future filter reviews. Unlikely that I will redo this test, but I certainly would like to know what other info you would like to see. For one, I know that comparison with Hoya and B+W are good to have, but I don’t have them this time round. I hope this gives a good idea on the quality of the filters.
First scenario is indoor, using 1 x high-power fluorescent lighting, 70W. The white balance is set manually using preset white balance. The camera used is D700, and the lens is 85mm F1.4.
• Camera Model: D700
• Lens: 85mm F1.4
• White Balance: Preset WB
• Exposure: Manual
• Filters used: JYC MC-UV and JYC CPL
• Photo mode: Neutral
Using JYC MC-UV Filter
For the MC-UV filter, there is no perceptible loss of sharpness.
Using JYC CPL Filter
For the CPL, it will result in a slightly warmer picture and no perceptible loss of sharpness either. There is a loss of slightly more than 1-stop of light when using the CPL. You can see that some of the reflection on the glass is reduced through the use of the CPL. This is one of the key advantage of using CPL, i.e removing reflection from water and glossy surfaces.
