This B&H Kit includes the Hoya 55mm Ultraviolet UV Haze HD (High Density) Digital Filter and the Hoya 55mm Circular Polarizer Super-HMC Thin Filter. The UV filter in this kit is able to reduce the bluish cast of daylight and provide a layer of protection for a lens's front element. 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 55mm Ultraviolet UV Haze HD (High Density) Digital Filter is a general use, clear filter designed to absorb ultraviolet light and reduce the bluish cast of daylight. Aside from the reduction of unwanted blue casts, no additional coloration or contrast is created, and adjustments to exposure are not required while using this filter.

The Hoya 55mm Circular Polarizer Super-HMC Thin Filter reduces exposure by 1.6 to 2 stops and 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.

    This filter features a seven-layer Super-HMC multi-coating, which helps to reduce internal flare and reflections. Thin filters are specifically designed for use with wide angle lenses and do not have front threads for stacking additional filters.

    Clears up haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
    Strongest effect when used at a 90° angle from the sun.
    Seven-layer multi coating helps to minimize internal reflections and ghosting and maintain an overall neutral color balance.
    Thin mount filter ring helps to prevent vignetting when used on wide-angle lenses.

  • Hoya 55mm Ultraviolet UV Haze HD (High Density) Digital Filter

    The 55mm Ultraviolet UV(0) Haze HD (High Density) Filter from Hoya is a wise initial investment. It helps protect your valuable investment from dust, moisture and scratches, which can lead to costly repairs.

    This filter, with its hardened glass, has 4x the tensile strength of traditional filters of similar fabrication. This filter is also of great use in today's digital market where sensors are more sensitive to reflected light. Hoya incorporates special coatings that reduce these internal reflections and, thereby, promote a clearer, brighter and sharper image. The multi-coating used in this filter is made up of 8 layers on each side that promote 99.35% light transmission.

    Hoya is one of the largest manufacturers of glass in the filter industry. In collaboration with its parent company, Tokina Optical, Hoya continues to strive to produce some of the best glass on the market. Currently, they hold 40% of the world's market for optical glass.

    The advantage of most Hoya filters is that Hoya puts, at least, one layer of anti-reflective coating on each side of their glass. It is not bare glass. Even if the glass is not multi-coated, this kind of production tends to minimize flare and ghosting.

    Multi-coated - 8 layers on each side; 99.35% light transmission
    Waterproof, scratch and stain-resistant glass
    Good choice for digital photography
    If desired it can be left on the lens at all times for protection
    Haze filters provide additional benefits of correction for Ultraviolet(UV) light which can register on film and videotape as a bluish cast and can obscure distant details
    Filter promotes the acquisition of more light for your image
    Increases sharpness
