This B&H Kit includes the Hoya 52mm NDx400 HMC Filter and the Hoya 52mm Circular Polarizer (HMC) Multi-Coated Glass Filter. The neutral density filter in this kit allows you to reduce your exposure without having to make changes to a camera's shutter speed or aperture settings. The circular polarizer filter can be used to remove unwanted reflections from surfaces such as water or glass while increasing color saturation. These filters are multicoated to help reduce flare and improve light transmission.

The Hoya 52mm NDx400 HMC Filter is a solid ND filter with a 2.7 density and a 512x filter factor that provides a 9 stop exposure reduction. This filter creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. By slowing your exposure time or increasing your aperture, you are able to control depth of field and convey movement more easily. Neutral density filters do not affect the coloration of the image and are ideal for pairing with other filters.

The Hoya 52mm Circular Polarizer (HMC) Multi-Coated Glass Filter reduces exposure by 1.6 to 2 stops. It helps to eliminate 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.
