This 55mm Yellow (Y52) HMC Filter from Hoya is designed to increase contrast on black-and white film. In landscape photography the filter would have a greater tonal separation, which would make skies look more dramatic. Some films are more sensitive than others in the blue spectrum. This yellow filter helps overcome and cut through the blue haze, resulting in a sharper image.

The glass filter has a filter factor of two, so you should increase your exposure by one stop to compensate. The multi-coating reduces reflection at the filter surface which minimizes flare and ghosting. The ring is made from aluminum and features a threaded front for adding filters.

Increases contrast and tonal separation
Ideal for landscape photography
Aluminum ring for durability
Front threads allow filter stacking

    55mm Yellow Y52 HMC Filter is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from For those of us who still shoot B&W film Filter use (aside from UV and protective filters) have for the most part fallen to the wayside. No one really uses these colored filters as their use was for correcting tones in black and white photography. I still like to shoot the old cameras, and am a sucker for black and white film - something that benefits from filter use. If you are shooting digitally there is no need for these colored filters as you can do all of that in camera without the one stop loss of light that this Y52 filter causes. Out of all the colored filters, this one is my favorite, it is stronger than the Y48 filter (you need to compensate for one stop as opposed to 2/3 stops for the y48), so skies are darkened more, giving better cloud contrast. I find the results with skin tones to be very flattering, and overall it is just a perfect filter to keep on your camera at all times. I shoot with a lens hood but I still am very appreciative of the HMC coating. I own several Y52 filters and will pick up a few more in the future.
