The Hoya 58mm 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)

Ordered these for my new lens. Good price and they were quickly shipped. Fit perfectly and seem to be good quality.

Never realized what I was missing by not using filters. These work well and are relatively inexpensive - great value.

No naked lens! It's just wrong...

Buy a lens, buy, at least the basic, filters. These are the 3 that I would likely buy, individually, if there were not already a set(By that I mean - these 3 Hoyas! Thin/good!, priced so we don't have to over-economize by skipping the filters.). VERY nice pouch, too. With more than four I'll try putting them together, two at a time, to hold eight per pouch. Pouch will need to be in a 'protected' part of the camera case - no banging or bending allowed, couple sheets of plastic or tough cardboard around them...

Best Filter Set for your lens

There are many great filters available for any photography you choose, but this set is probably the the best choice for three filters you will always use. The UV, Polarizer, and Neutral Density filters are always useful, and the set is a great value for three great filters.

Great filter kit

Easy way to get the most used filters in once package - clear (for lens protection), neutral density, and circular polarizer. Hoya as usual high quality with minimal thickness so you can stack filters without affecting the picture area.

A BIG HELP

What polarizer fits on a 50mm 1.4
Asked by: Anonymous
"The first thing to determine is whether your lens has a filter thread on the front. While many lenses do, there are also more than a few that don't. If your lens has a filter thread, you'll need to find out the lens diameter. In many cases, it's marked on the lens itself with the followed by a number. That refers to millimeters. So 58, for instance, would mean it will take 58mm screw-in filters." SEE ARTICLE: havecamerawilltravel.com/photographer/lens-diameter-filter-size/
