Hoya HK-DG58-II overview

  • 1Description

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)

    Hoya HK-DG58-II reviews

    58mm Digital Filter Kit II is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Filters I am fairly happy with these filters. It is definitely a basic kit, but works well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great basic filter kit UV/Haze and Polarizing filters are the keys, but the neutral density filter is a nice addition. And the whole kit is priced less than any two of the filters on their own.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Quality Filters came in a well packaged box with a brochure on how their filters are made, quite impressed! The folding cloth carrying case was also well made, the only problem I had was the lens that I ordered these filters for was on back order so it has been six weeks before I could try them out!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great basic kit Great basic kit with the three filters I always take on shoots. Bought 2 lenses with my GH4, fits both lenses so ... no brainer. And there is room for another filter, really two since UV lives on the lens. Would have preferred variable ND, but that would have spiked the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenient Flat Case Very easy to store in your camera bag or backpack. No lose filters to get scratched or disappear. You can double up if you have filters inside their own plastic case. Filters are high quality glass...at least as I can see on my D5600 in RAW mode. Recommended.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from All the basics at a reasonable price This filter set is a great combo deal for the most-used filters. If you are just getting started or have a lens with a weird size that isn't compatible with your existing lenses, this will get you up to speed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product! I had gotten what we expected and more! The filters fit seamlessly on our Camera and offer new ways for us to experiment with photography. I was amazed how it was very much plug-in and go.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yes, I would buy this again I am not a pro by any means but these filters seem to be fine for my amateur use. I have purchased another Hoya kit like this and they work great on my other lens.
