The Hoya 77mm 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)

    77mm Digital Filter Kit II is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 65.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value, especially given the size I mostly use the polarizer and it's's been great. The construction is high quality. The frame is black anodized metal and the filters are made of glass. The polarizer rotates freely - a little to freely for me. I would like it if there was a little resistance because sometimes I would unintentionally rotate it out of position without noticing. Also my lens cap can barely bite into the filter so I doesn't feel as secure as if when it goes straight on the lens. The pouch is a nice touch but a bit too bulky. I would've preferred if the pouch stacked all the filters on top of each other.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Filters Honestly I've only had the chance to try the UV filter but so far it has been great. Indoor shots are nice too. You wouldn't think about UV indoors but truthfully there is more UV than we may be aware of with some of the lighting requirements of photography and natural surroundings as well. The case could use a little stiffening/padding. Putting your filters in your camera backpack can be a challenge considering the weight of equipment could contribute to breakage if its rolling around in your trunk all the way to the shoot...;)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Nice Accessory Being an old guy who shot my first photo using a Nikkormat SLR in 1970, I tend to use filters more than most. With Photoshop and other digital editing available these days, filters may not seem as important. But I've always operated with the belief it's best to get the highest quality image IN THE CAMERA before using photo editing software. This kit will give you the basics needed for a new camera kit. I leave the UV filter on at all times to protect the front element of the lens. I use the polarizing filter for the majority of my outdoor shots to bring out the blue sky and make the greens pop. I tend not to use the ND filter as much, since I will lower the ISO on the camera if there's too much light. The case is well made and has stood up to frequent use quite well. If there is aspect that would improve the case it would be to make it 'foldable' in the middle in order to use it in a small camera bag. It's a bit long to fit nicely into a compact camera bag. Other than that one item, it's a five-star product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Starter Kit Comparable price for a great starter kit. Includes the basics, but I used them all the first time I took my camera out. I would highly recommend having at LEAST this filter kit for your 77mm lens.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not recommend the UV filter Used with canon 16-35 f4 IS. UV filter shows strong reflection (green spot) in some situation. UV is also hard to clean. CPL work as expected.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for nessary accossary. These filters are a must have for any photographer. The 3 filter set will cover most situations you will encounter. The uv filter protects the front element of your lens and most shooters keep the filter on peremently. The polarizer & neutral density filter will help give you skies more punch and increases your exposure latitude . B & H has great price & free shipping, what could be better.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality for the price I got these for my Nikon D750 and am liking them so far. Good light transmission with no noticeable distortion or coloration. They also come with a handy case.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice set I like having a set of filters that I can use on my new lens. I wanted the UV to help protect my lens and have a similar Hoya polarizer filter on another lens that I own and can't live without. I am looking forward to experimenting with the neutral density filter in the future.
