Hoya A-55Y52 Overview

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.

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.
