The Hoya Portrait filter is a subtle intensifying filter using "didymium" glass with a different chemical composition. Didymium filters are also referred to as "Band Pass" filters.

Through this band pass effect, Hoya has developed a filter that subtly increases saturation of the pink component in skin tones by reducing both the yellow and orange cast of people's complexion, and it does not give an over-all color cast to the photograph
Over all color casting has been a problem with intensifying/color enhancing filter available from other manufacturers
The Hoya Portrait filter is available in filter sizes 49mm through 77mm

          Comments about Hoya 52mm Portrait Glass Filter:

          I mainly use it for different purpose, which is for reduction of light pollution while taking night sky pictures.It is great for portrait with very good contrast.It is an OK for light pollution, but that is excpected. Since good light pollution filters are several hundred dollars.

            Comments about Hoya 52mm Portrait Glass Filter:

            Great filter that does what it's supposed to do. Recommend it to anyone in film or photography. On a 25 mm voigtlander, the images are sharp and higher in contrast than they would be without it.
