Hoya A-55ND8X-GB overview

  • 1Description

The Hoya 55mm 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

Neutral Density Factors

2x = ND.3 (exposure adjustment = 1 stop, reduces ISO 1/2)
4x = ND.6 (exposure adjustment = 2 stops, reduces ISO 1/4)
8x = ND.9 (exposure adjustment = 3 stops, reduces ISO 1/8)
As one of the premier filter manufacturers, Hoya filters continue to made from quality glass assuring the photographer clear, sharp and accurate images
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-55ND8X-GB reviews

    55mm Neutral Density (NDX8) 0.9 Filter is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay, but expecting more Overall I would recommend it, with some reservations. This filter is multicoated, nevertheless it can have some serious ghosting if your light source is in the frame, compared to having no filter at all (I had almost no ghosting with the filter off). Pretty much a perfect mirror image of your light source in the opposite corner of the frame. I was expecting the coating to work a little harder than that. There is also a slight magenta cast, but it's pretty faint. You probably wouldn't want to stack these though. On the plus side, I didn't see any loss in resolution when using it with a normal lens. The light reduction is pretty much exactly 3 stops.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleased, would buy again. I purchased to use with Mitakon 35mm f/0.95 for Canon EOS M mount. I wanted to shoot outdoors in the bright South Texas sun at f/0.95. Mission accomplished. Get some cool results shooting wide open in broad daylight, extremely shallow depth of field. I wouldn't recommend unless your lens is faster than f/2.0 and a relatively short focal length - at least not for hand held shots as you may experience shutter/camera shake. The attached image was shot in broad daylight, f/0.95, ISO 100 with a nice fast shutter speed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Filter !!!! I bought this filter to take pictures with long shutter time at daylight and the results are wonderful pictures.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Density Filter The Neutral Density filter was purchased for an upcoming trip to Alaska. It fits perfectly on my 55mm sony lens. But it did not divide the filter as I anticipated, but rather is a complete ND filter with no transition. I was searching for a graduated filter. Either way I will find a time and place for it along with other items in my case.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excelente Best Nd filter for a 3 stop is not bad 0 distortion on the images but I do recommend if your trying to take photos on bright sun use something with higher stops like 9 or 10

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from must have filter Great optics. Worth every penny. Works much better than cheap ones. Auto color balance in the sony a77 is unaffected.
