Hoya 52mm HMC Close-Up Filter Set II (+1, +2, and +4)
Key Features
  • Creates Macro Effect
  • Decreases Minimum Focus Distance
  • +1, +2, and +4 Diopter Strengths
  • Multi-Coated
This Hoya 52mm HMC Close-Up Filter Set II offers the ability to achieve macro-like results with camera lenses that have 52mm front filter threads. A close-up filter is a magnifier that optically decreases the focal length of a camera lens placed behind it. This effect lessens the minimum focus distance between the camera lens and a subject. Magnification can then be obtained by decreasing the distance between the subject and the combined camera lens and close-up filter.

Hoya A-52CUS-II Overview

This Hoya 52mm HMC Close-Up Filter Set II offers the ability to achieve macro-like results with camera lenses that have 52mm front filter threads. A close-up filter is a magnifier that optically decreases the focal length of a camera lens placed behind it. This effect lessens the minimum focus distance between the camera lens and a subject. Magnification can then be obtained by decreasing the distance between the subject and the combined camera lens and close-up filter.

The magnifying power of a close-up filter is indicated by its diopter strength. A close-up filter with a higher diopter number provides more relative magnification and can be combined with other close-up filters to increase, or fine-tune the macro effect. These close-up filters have diopter strengths of +1, +2, and +4.

Each surface of the filters in this Hoya HMC Close-Up Filter Set II is constructed from optical glass which includes three layers of anti-reflection coatings that offer improved clarity as well as more effective prevention of internal ghosting and reflections. These close-up filters each provide approximately 97% average light transmission and feature an aluminum-alloy filter ring for durability while remaining lightweight.

Hoya A-52CUS-II Reviews

A good set of filter at a decent price

I mostly use the +2 filter on my Sony RX100 VII to videotape in 4K my flowers in my garden. At 200mm, the frame is filled by flowers smaller than 2 across still at a workable distance of several inches. I cannot see any degradation of quality. I am very satisfied with these filters.

Just what I needed!

Absolutely love these! I am able to get really great macro shots with these, even without a macro lens.

Excellent Filters and Service

I'm very pleased with these filters and B&H's service. The quality of the glass is excellent and the magnification is clear and strong. Images are sharp with a very narrow depth of field. And while this is supposedly not as good as a macro lens the results are excellent!
