Hoya HK-DG52-II overview

  • 1Description

The Hoya 52mm 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-DG52-II reviews

    52mm Digital Filter Kit II is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice combination of filters This is a very useful combination of filters. The UV filter is great for all outdoor footage, both to cut the UV rays and to protect the main lens. Polarizing filter can really make the sky pop on bright days. And the ND filter can open the lens up to decrease the depth of field and add a special look to your pictures or video.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value Kit A very inexpensive filters kit from Hoya, which I've always trust and been using. The pack can also fits another 67mm filter in it perfectly, and if you always have one filter on your lens, you can probably fit 2 in it! My complain would be the pack doesn't really seems protective enough, especially from impact or dust.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performs as advertised. I bought this filter kit to complete my daylight camera gear for my 50mm lens. The filters work. Best thing about them - I don't have to think about them when they are on my lens. The only downside - they are so functionally clear that I will forget to take them off in low light situations. Highly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 'ALL I NEED' This is a very good buy on all three filters together. Hoya filters get very good grades based on cost to benefits. Great protection for my camera lens and makes a great photo much better. Bought these filters with another order and enjoyed expedited shipping. Makes my shopping very easy. Thanks Band H !!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice kit to start off Not expensive not the best but good enough for enthusiasts. And since you usually will have at least one filter on your lens, you have extra space on the bag to put a couple of filters more (I have a 67mm filter on the bag, and it fits perfectly)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value This kit gives you protection for your lens plus a quality polarizing and ND filter. The soft case has four pockets, so additional filters can be stored in it if desired.
