Due to its light pink color, the Hoya Skylight (1B) reduces the bluish cast of daylight and produces a pleasing, warmer picture tone. Wise initial investments, they help protect your lens from dust, moisture and scratches, which can lead to costly repairs.

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

If desired they can be left on at all times for protection
Skylight filters provide additional benefits of correction for Ultraviolet(UV) light which can register on film and videotape as a bluish cast and can obscure distant details
Also used to reduce the bluish cast common with some electronic flash units

        Works well to protect the lens. I had one prior to this one and broke when the lens dropped, save the lens, cheap insurance!

        Images are still crisp and clear. Tonal change is pleasing but very slight compared to without the filter.

              Hoya are excellent quality filters. Hoya's company also makes optical elements for some of the bigger lense manfs. Solid, clear, good value for price at 77mm. Use it as a lens protector.

                Comments about Hoya 77mm Skylight 1B (HMC) Multi-Coated Glass Filter:

                Hoya is my preferred brand for camera filters. I have a number of these skylight 1B HMC filters on all my lenses for protection and also to remove some of the blue from the sky. Since I live in the mountains of S. California at 7,000 ft elevation the sky is a deep blue almost all the time and the UV content is very high. Very easy to get a sunburn here even in the winter.

                    These are great filters for the money! I use it on my Nikon 80-200 f2.8 as an every day protection filter. Good indoors and out.

                      I purchased this filter for my Nikon 17-35mm lens which stays on it all the time. I choose this filter vs the clear for the added warmth to my photo's. It's a good constructed filter

                          I use it always with my 12-24 f/4 and iit squality is enough not to get it worse.
                          Is a good constructed filter, the only point is that it could be even slimer (but you have that option for a higher price, of course).

                          At the end I only use it for protecting my lense (it actually did protect it twice from being completely scratched, twice!)

                            Purchased to go with a portrait lens, I chose the skylight 1B rather than a clear UV filter in order to warm up the image just a little bit. The Hoya seems strong, well made and does the job as planned.
