Hoya A46UVC overview

  • 1Description

The Hoya 46mm Ultraviolet UV (C) Haze Filter is a wise initial investment. It helps protect your valuable investment from dust, moisture, and scratches, which can lead to costly repairs. The "C" on the filter ring designates Hoya's thinner design for this filter. This filter has its UV properties in the multi-coating. The result is an average light transmission of over 97% giving sharp contrast and well balanced color. Hoya HMC filters are recommended for enhancing the performance of today's multi-coated digital lenses.

The filters are multi-coated to minimize reflection at the filter surfaces which reduces flare and ghosting.

Good choice for digital photography
If desired it can be left on the lens at all times for protection
Haze filters provide additional benefits of correction for Ultraviolet(UV) light which can register on film and videotape as a bluish cast and can obscure distant details
Ultraviolet filters allow you to correct for the UV effect to varying degrees

    Hoya A46UVC reviews

    46mm Ultraviolet UV (C) Haze Multi-Coated Filter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 92.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reasonably priced investment No camera enthusiast should shoot without a UV filter. I picked the Hoya multicoated filter for two reasons. First, and most importantly, to protect the lens of my new camera. Second, to cut through the haze that is invariable in most of our polluted urban and other environments. The Hoya filter meets both these requirements admirably. I picked a 46 mm filter to screw onto the lens of my new DMC FZ 35. Once that is done you can go on clicking away without a second thought. Every now and then I sense that there is a bit of a dullness in the picture but mostly this is due to indoor conditions. Perhaps you can take it off when doing indoor photography. Other than that, this is a good quality, reasonably priced filter that should immediately be purchased.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good lens protector I have used Hoya filters for 40 years with great durability, excellent quality, low scratch characteristics. This size fits the Panasonic FZ35 and is an excellent lens protector without adding any color to the digital photos.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great multicoated Filter I purchased this filter as lens protection on my Panasonic TM700. It does the job well as flare is well controlled when compared to non coated filters. There is a minimal amout of green flare when shooting photos with the flash between the filter and lens at the widest angle. That flare disappears when zoomed in for a photo with the flash. I would remove the filter in these situations. This is the best multicoated uv filter available from any manufacturer in this filter size. Hoya do make other series but not in this size.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good for the price. I purchased two of these filters for my micro 4/3 lenses that have 46mm threads (14mm f2.5 and 25mm f1.4). I would say that there is virtually no discernible difference in optical quality between the Hoya UV MC and the more costly B+W MRC filters. The B+W MRC coatings my be only slightly better at limiting flare, but not much. If it's just to protect the lens this is a good inexpensive solution. If you are a pro and can afford the very best of the best lens protector, I would say stick with B+W. If, you are looking for a filter for the specific purpose of blocking UV rays, look no further. This Hoya MC placed first in a well known independent test of UV filters when it comes to actually blocking UV light besting many more expensive filters even those made by Hoya.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Will protect your lens, beware of ghosts Even though it is multicoated, I still get reflections or ghosts of strong light sources on the filter, consequently, appearing on the shot. I guess you'll have to spend more than $100 on a filter to avoid this, I haven't, so I can't really compare. As long as you know this filter's drawback and work around it, you'll be just fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product, very competitive pric I use this on on my Panasonic DMC-LX3 with the DMW-LA4 lens adapter for protecting the Leica lens. I never worry about forgetting to put on the lens cap before stowing the camera!
    Date published: 2008-11-26
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not good indoors w/ Compact Fluorescents Used it indoors on a HD Camcorder with Compact Fluorescent lights (probably a no no). Created a sun flare effect on the video (not what I was after).
    Date published: 2010-08-27
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Coating is good, but not perfect. Initially, I'd purchased a Tiffen HAZE-1 filter to reduce UV hase and protect my Panasonic Lumix 20mm MFT lens. To my disappointment, that filter had no multi coating and flared badly any time a bright light source got in front of the lens. I bought the Hoya as a replacement and although the flare is still there, it substantially less distracting than with the Tiffen. The price was great and the build quality was good with a solid heft and solid seating on the lens.
