Hoya HK-DG405-II overview

  • 1Description

The Hoya 40.5mm Digital Filter Kit II includes a UV (C) HMC filter, a circular polarizer filter, and a 3-stop neutral density filter in a convenient filter pouch. This kit provides everything necessary to get started with filtration for your digital camera.

The UV (C) filter is a multi-coated filter with a slim mounting ring. This makes it useful for wide-angle lenses to avoid potential vignetting. Also, the UV filter itself is a general use, clear filter that helps to absorb ultraviolet light. No additional coloration or contrast is provided, allowing you to pair this filter with others. It is also useful as a general protective filter to leave on lenses at all times. Filters help to reduce dust and moisture from reaching your lens element and provide additional protection in case of drops or situations where scratching could occur.

Hoya HMC filters are multi-coated for reducing flare, ghosting, and reflections on the filter surface. As a result, over 97% light transmission is possible, providing you with additional contrast and high color fidelity.

A circular polarizer filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. The light from the sun naturally becomes partially polarized due to reflecting off electrons in air molecules, causing the light to scatter into what appears as haze. A polarizing filter arranges, and filters, this directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of this light. This results in a noticeable reduction of glare and reflections from non-metallic surfaces and an increase in the saturation of skies and foliage.

A circular polarizer only differs from a linear polarizer in that it contains a quarter wave plane in addition to the linear polarizing filter. The addition of this quarter wave plane is to circularly polarize the linearly polarized light for the use of auto focus and exposure functions. Due to how the light is broken down and filtered with a linear polarizer, auto focus and exposure accuracy become skewed during use. When the light becomes circularly polarized, it permits the use of these functions.

A neutral density filter has several uses and offers the possibility to achieve otherwise unachievable results. ND filters appear gray and reduce the amount of light reaching the film. They have no effect on color balance. This filter offers a filter factor of 0.9, equivalent to 3 stops of light.

UV Filter

Absorbs UV light, which can cause outdoor photos to appear hazy and indistinct
Clear filter provides no additional coloration or contrast, allowing you to pair this filter with others
Works as general protection filter to reduce dust, moisture, and scratches from reaching lens elements.
HMC multi-coating help to reduce flare, ghosting, and reflections on the filter surface for greater contrast and color fidelity. Greater than 97% light transmission is possible, providing additional contrast and high color fidelity.

Circular Polarizer Filter

Helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface
Polarizing filters arrange, and filter, directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of the light
Clears up haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors
Strongest effect when used at a 90° angle from the sun
Circular polarizers are ideal for use with digital cameras and autofocus lenses where a linear polarizer will often disrupt auto exposure and focus features

Neutral Density Uses

To enable slow shutter speeds to be used, especially with high speed films, to record movement in subjects such as waterfalls, clouds, or cars
To decrease depth of field by allowing wider apertures to be used, which helps separate subjects from their background
To decrease the effective ISO of high speed film (above ISO 400) and allow it to be used outdoors in bright situations
To allow cine and video cameras (which have fixed shutter speeds) to film subjects such as snow, sand or other bright scenes which could cause overexposure
8x = ND 0.9 (exposure adjustment = 3 stops, reduces ISO 1/8)

    Hoya HK-DG405-II reviews

    40.5mm Digital Filter Kit II is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for my needs Great little kit for my two Nikon 1j1s. Good quality filters at a good price. B&H always excellent in getting it to me fast too!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from They're not expensive but..... These filters were very inexpensive which is why I purchased them and I had no delusion that they were going to be equivalent to high quality filters. They definitely do the job, especially for the price but the optical quality on the haze filter in particular is very very poor. That being said for most consumers they would probably never notice the difference. I give them a 4 star due to the price point and expectations for that price range. If they were more expensive I would give them a 2 star.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Made These filters are made welll and fit on my Sony Alpha A6000. They screw on easily.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Collection These Hoya filters are well-made, as is the pouch. Plus, the pouch is just the right size for these small filters. And, the pouch has one open slot for an additional filter of the user's choice. This three-filter set costs about the same as I would have paid for a UV and CPL combination separately. Although I prefer a 2-stop (4X) ND filter, I am happy to have the 8X for essentially no extra cost.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful tools There are only 2 filters that cannot be simulated in Photoshop, polarizer and ND. This kit contains both. I don't have to use the ND filter often but when I do it is the only thing that will work. The filters seem to be well made and screw on easily although they recess slightly and this may be problematic causing the polarizer to be difficult to remove. As of yet I have not had this problem

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice package I recently started to use nd filters on my sony a5100 for long exposure photos..this offered an nd8 ..not dark enough for what I needed..however it came with a polarizer and a clear filter for protection...nice starter pack..
    Date published: 2015-04-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first time. This is the first filter kit I have ever purchased. All my other filters have been bought piecemeal. It is my solemn testimony that these filters work every bit as well as any 52, 58, or 77 mm filter I have ever owned.
    Date published: 2015-01-13
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfecto! Los filtros Hoya me los recomend? un amigo que es fot?grafo y la verdad que son muy buenos. Uso el claro para cuidar el lente de la c?mara y el polarizado para cuando hay mucha luz!
