Hoya A-52ND8X-GB overview

  • 1Description

The Hoya 52mm Neutral Density (NDX8) 0.9 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.

Multi-coated to minimize reflection at the filter surfaces which reduces flare and ghosting.

Neutral Density filters have four main 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
2x = ND.3 (exposure adjustment = 1 stop, reduces ISO by 1/2)
4x = ND.6 (exposure adjustment = 2 stops, reduces ISO by 1/4)
8x = ND.9 (exposure adjustment = 3 stops, reduces ISO by 1/8)
Hoya filters consistently provide even color all the way through the filter; all surfaces are ground and polished to specific thickness and tolerances

    Hoya A-52ND8X-GB reviews

    52mm Neutral Density (NDX8) 0.9 Filter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A little softer image at 400% I bought this several years ago, I carefully compared it when using it or not using it, at 400% magnification, I notice that this filter introduces image softening, but since I use this mainly for 1080p video, it does not affect me, my image here, on the left, it is taken with ND filter, and no ND filter on the right, you can make your own judgement. The image was taken with 18-55mm Canon EF, ISO=100, f/5.6, shutter speed at 1/57 sec and 1/450 sec. I carefully took the picture to avoid any motion blur. What you see here is at 400% magnification.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems Clear I haven't messed around with it much, but it's been clear with my stock lens (D3300 18-55) and I haven't seen any really noticeable image quality degradation. Sorry, just rebuilt my system and do not have image tools loaded yet in order to upload a JPEG. I may update later to show an example. It screws on and off fine. Construction does't feel very beefy, but it's definitely not been flimsy at all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic exposures! Harness the sun and use to your advantage with super natural like skin tones and produces very pleasing exposures!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must for my Sigma 30mm f1.4 There's no other way: if you're under a bright sunlight with a fast lenses as the Sigma 30mm f1.4, you must have this filter. One of the two: you will have a very overexposed image, or you will loose your bokeh, because you will have to go f8, f16, etc... With this filter, I can keep at f1.8, or even at f1.4 on most cases, on a very sunny day. Just don't forget to remove it when the sun goes down!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A quality ND filter Hoya has been a go-to filter for the good price and results deisred. Bought for use on the 40mm Canon pancake for those fluffy water shots and other long exposure results. Mostly used at twilight so having more stops wasn't necessary.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy I'd usually recommend buying a larger filter and stepping up. But with a lens this small you'll want something small to go with it. Hoya makes solid filters. Nothing seems cheap about it. Worth the money.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from decent filter I needed a cheap ND for my 50mm. I got this. It's worked as expected thus far. Though next time I'll probably purchase a filter for my larger diameter lens and buy a step down ring.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised I was looking for a neutral density filter so that I could play around with longer exposures in daylight and this definitely fit the bill. Good construction and price.
