This Hoya Red #25A filter is ideal for strong contrast improvement since it absorbs green and blue completely and enhances red. In addition to contrast control, red filters enhance skin tones, tonal corrections and are effective for more dramatic landscapes.

Multicoated to minimize reflection at the filter surfaces which reduces flare and ghosting.

      Comments about Hoya 52mm Red #25A (HMC) Multi-Coated Glass Filter for Black & White Film:

      I'm a photography student and I mostly do traditional film photography. I wanted to take some landscape and cityscape pictures, my professor recommended red filter so I bought this Hoya #25A Red Filter I loved the result and now I almost never take a picture without it.
      It just gives you nice contrast.

        This is a great inexpensive filter perfect for people who are just getting started. I used it at the National Mall on a mostly clear day and it gave it a dramatic feel and made the clouds and Washington monument stand out.

            We use this product for the railroad industry. i would really like to also as an option be able to get just the glass filter without the metal case around it.

              im in a dark room class now and was told that a red 25 would make the skys in a landskape pop so I figureed I would give it a try and what a difference it makes the sky is dark and the clouds look so nice and fluffy white. a must have when shooting black and white film.

                Red filter makes for dark skies in B&W, greatly enhancing the drama and contrast of puffy white clouds. The problem is the red filter costs 2+ f-stops in aperture or shutter speed.

                  I shoot large format B&W exclusively and use this on my Nikkor-M 300mm. Good filter for more extreme sky & cloud intensification. High optical quality at a reasonable price. Can't think of any shortcomings. I like Hoya and use their filter products on all of my lenses.
