Hoya HK-DG62-II overview

  • 1Description

The Hoya 62mm 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-DG62-II reviews

    62mm Digital Filter Kit II is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What I expected Currently I have only used the polarizing filter but it was invaluable when I went whale watching recently. The ocean and sky where not washed out in the photos.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I wouldn't purchase this brand of filters ever again. Since I'm no expert, and am learning everything about DSLR's, I'm not all that familiar with using filters. But what I have read, the ones I purchased don't seem to meet up with what I read. What I read about the circular polarizing filter, it is supposed to help reduce glare from water, and other reflective materials. Not all that much. And, I also read you can use more than one filter at a time. I used the UV filter with the polarizing filter, and had a real problem separating them when I was done (I had to use 2 large pairs of channel locking pliers to separate them).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Filters - Good Price! For every camera that I have owned over 50 years, I have purchased UV & Circular Polarizer Filers. So, when I purchased the Pentax 18-270mm Lens, I also ordered this Hoya Filter Kit. I have not been disappointed. I immediately used the UV filter on the lens when it arrived and it will remain on it till I finish using it. I have not yet used the CP Filter or the ND Filter. I plan to be traveling in the near future, so I will know more then. Till that time, I can only say that Hoya makes excellent filters (i.e. I have purchased and used them before).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Deal I use these filters with my Sony MX10II. I've always had good luck with Hoya filters. I really only needed the UV and Polarizer but it was cheaper to buy the kit, and may use the ND some day.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from PGK -- Pretty Good Kit Basic needs filter kit. Most everything else can be done using Lightroom.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well made Using the UV filter mainly to protect the lens. The CL polarizer is very useful and the ND filter gives me some latitude in bright light. Very well packaged with an informative booklet on filters and Hoya manufacturing. The wallet is about twice as large as it needs to be, would prefer something a whole lot more compact.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value I have this set in 58mm for one lens, so I bought the 62mm kit for my other lens. Three very useful filters in a padded case is a no brainer. There may be higher quality filters out there, but these filters have not caused any noticeable negative effects to my images.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great filters for run & gun I just got a set of these filters for my Panasonic GH5 knowing I was going to be doing a lot of outdoor shooting in a both sunny & dust/dirt-filled environment with the potential for scratching the filters. �This was the perfect set for the price - it was invaluable having the nd filter during the day and I wasn't overly worried about �ruining an expensive piece of equipment in the relatively harsh environments I was in. �Are they the most high-quality, of course not - but they do the job pretty well.
