This Hoya Red #25A filter is ideal for strong contrast improvement since it absorbs green and blue completely and enhances red. In addition to contrast control, red filters enhance skin tones, tonal corrections and are effective for more dramatic landscapes.

Multicoated to minimize reflection at the filter surfaces which reduces flare and ghosting.

Clouds are dramatically improved almost to the mood of a thunderstorm; Darkens blue sky creating dramatic contrast between sky and clouds
It is more effective in cutting through haze, and moonlight effects are easily accomplished; Creates greater contrast between foliage and flowers
It is also suited for infrared photography

Hoya A-5225A-GB reviews

52mm Red #25A (HMC) Multi-Coated Glass Filter for Black & White Film is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good quality filters. I use the Hoya Red #25 filter primarily for digital infrared photography. There are many out there that are much lower in cost but always remember, you get what you pay for. Hoya has been my brand of filter for most of my IR work. Their quality is very good and consistent, and for the price, you can't go wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Filter I bought this filter for my black & white film photography work that I do as a hobby with my Nikon FM2n. After my developing my first roll and looking at it, I can say that it does well it's job. All the colors that are opposite to red in the color spectrum are either blacked out or get darker tones in black & white pictures. The quality of the image is not affected by the filter. Filter does what it supposed to do and nothing more. As an amateur photographer I haven't noticed a negative about this filter and so far I had no problems with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Have Filter I'm a photography student and I mostly do traditional film photography. I wanted to take some landscape and cityscape pictures, my professor recommended red filter so I bought this Hoya #25A Red Filter I loved the result and now I almost never take a picture without it. It just gives you nice contrast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended for black and white photography Excellent glass and general build quality. Ideal for contrast / pop-out skies especially used in bright sunlight. Although you lose about 2 stops, this isn't necessary an issue when shooting in bright sun on film as it can aid with limited maximum shutter speeds of vintage film cameras and allow for the potential use of wider apertures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from dramatic skys im in a dark room class now and was told that a red 25 would make the skys in a landskape pop so I figureed I would give it a try and what a difference it makes the sky is dark and the clouds look so nice and fluffy white. a must have when shooting black and white film.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Red Filter This is a great inexpensive filter perfect for people who are just getting started. I used it at the National Mall on a mostly clear day and it gave it a dramatic feel and made the clouds and Washington monument stand out.
Date published: 2013-02-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Quality 25A Multi-Coated Filter I shoot large format B&W exclusively and use this on my Nikkor-M 300mm. Good filter for more extreme sky & cloud intensification. High optical quality at a reasonable price. Can't think of any shortcomings. I like Hoya and use their filter products on all of my lenses.
Date published: 2009-10-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product Well made, good quality. I use this filter on bright, sunny days. If the shot is under exposed, sunlight looks like moonlight. On a very clear day, the sky shows up jet black. Experiment with different film and exposures.
