Hoya HK-DG72-II overview

  • 1Description

The Hoya 72mm 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)

    72mm Digital Filter Kit II is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Filters are always necessary I have used filters on all my lenses for the last forty plus years. My first photography teacher stressed the use of filters. I started my love affair the first time I didn't use a polarizing filter. I was taking a photo of a sailboat on Puget Sound. The sun glaring off the waves, the sailboat was leaning in the wind. It would be a beautiful picture. But it wasn't. This pic was taken with black and white film. When my teacher saw my results, the first thing he said was, you should have used a polarizing filter. I did for the next picture I took of Puget Sound. What a difference. That was film, but with digital, I will probably use just the ones I got. Thank you for offering those three.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hoya filters Great filters. I tried to save a few bucks a while back and purchased a Vivitar Series 1 filter., it was a P. O. S. (You know what I mean). Should have known better as I have Hoya filters on all my Hasselblad, Canon and other lenses. I was able to stack the polarizer an ND filters without loss of sharpness.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hoya 72mm filter kit I bought this for two main reasons, for a protective UV filter for a new lens, and for the ND filter, which I have been experimenting with for almost a week. The filters are well made, and if you have a 'gentle' touch about things, you won't have any trouble with the fine screw threads, as some critiques have mentioned. For long exposures with the ND filter, make sure you don't get finger smudges on it, or you will see a blurred image that corresponds to the location of the smudge. Also, find some way to cover your eyepiece, or you will see odd areas of your photo that are overexposed. The filter is a .8 ND filter, which gives you about 3 stops of exposure reduction. In bright sunlight, to stop, or create that 'milky' effect, a .8ND is probably insufficient, but for a stream in a wooded area, or an ocean shot at or near sundown, it is more than enough. The three filters come with a soft folder type case, but I opted to use a Ruggard case I had purchased from B&H as it is a bit smaller.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from no regrets I bought these filters after reading many reviews that said you should have them for your camera. I looked at filters in my price range and the reviews were good for this pack. I have been trying out the filters and I have gotten great results. The picture quality as far as I can tell has not been affected whatsoever, and they help take clear, beautiful pictures of bright ocean scenes as well as sunsets.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Filter Kit The Hoya 72mm Filter Kit it is a must on my daily photo assignments. Having the ND filter gives me freedom to blur movement on plain day light while the Polarised helps me get rid of reflective surfaces and ensures a high contrast blue sky. UV filter is a must not just for ultraviolet but to constantly protect my 1.2 50mm Canon lens. All filter show a top quality glass that goes along perfect with my Prime lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice set of filters, good storage case This set of three most-used Hoya filters is a bargain compared to one-at-a-time pricing. The three filters come in a soft case that accommodates four in all. With a bit of padding it's a bit bulky in a snug camera bag, but it's a good storage case for extras. For the bag, I'll stack and use caps.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice kit I bought this product to use on a Sony 18-105 lens. I do not keep the UV on all the time. I used the circular polarizer and it's works well. It is thin and didn't vingnette at 18 mm. I'm assuming the other 2 filters will work fine too. I recommend this kit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent products Just what I needed under the bright and colorful Caribbean sun for my Sony e-mount lens (18-105mm) mounted on the 6300. The neutral density filter required a few tries before screwing on right to the lens. Perhaps due to imprecise manufacturing.
