Hoya XD52UV overview

  • 1Description

The Hoya 52mm Ultraviolet (UV) Pro 1 Digital Filter is a wise initial investment. It helps protect your valuable investment from dust, moisture and scratches, which can lead to costly repairs.

Digital camera CCD or CMOS sensors are highly susceptible to reflections. This stray light can ruin your photographs with flare and ghosting. Hoya Digital Multi-Coating reduces any internal reflections, which means a clearer image with greater contrast.

A UV filter not only minimizes the bluish cast sometimes found under daylight conditions, but is also the best available protection against accidental damage to the front element of your lens. A lens that accidentally gets dropped on its front element while hiking can potentially be saved by purchasing this item. Some people refer to it as "cheap insurance".

As a lens protector, it should be left on at all times. Aside from that more-than-significant benefit, UV filters render your photos clearer and sharper. For those who enjoy outdoor photography, especially distant vistas, a UV filter can produce a more distinct and acceptable image by removing much of the blue tint normally associated with atmospheric haze.

The advantage of most Hoya filters is that Hoya puts, at least, one layer of anti-reflective coating on each side of their glass. It is not bare glass. Even if the glass is not multi-coated, this kind of production tends to minimize flare and ghosting. Digital Multi-Coating takes this protection to a higher level.

Hoya is one of the largest manufacturers of glass in the filter industry. In collaboration with its parent company, Tokina Optical, Hoya continues to strive to produce some of the best glass on the market. Currently, they hold 40% of the world's market for optical glass.

Digital Multi-Coated
Digital multi-coated filters greatly reduce the appearance of lens flare and ghosting caused by internal reflections that can be a problem with CCD and CMOS sensors
Black Almite Frame
Filters feature a black matte aluminum, satin-finish almite frame, which reduces reflections
Black Rimmed Glass
These filters are equipped with black rimmed glass to reduce the chance of light reflecting off the edge
Low Profile Frame
Ultra-thin filter frames, which help to avoid vignetting on super wide angle lenses, are also designed to hold a lens cap
Knurling Edge Frame
These filters are equipped with a straight knurling edge for non-slip, easy attachment and removal
UV Protected Case
Filter cases are UV protected, which further lengthens the life of filters

    Hoya XD52UV reviews

    52mm Ultraviolet (UV) Pro 1 Digital Filter is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 35.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from UV Glass Filter by HOYA (52mm) I have been casually shooting around on my Nikon D40 and as I have gained more experience with it, I wanted to treat my camera better. One recommendation was getting a lens filter. I did my research, read some reviews and decided to go with the HOYA 52mm lens filter you are reading about here. I couldn't be happier with the results - it really helps my pictures out. The filter reduces the chance of minute rays getting in and otherwise ruining a great picture. It fits well and the pictures turn out nice. I am not, however, so well versed that I could give you a technical comparison between pics but I can tell that my pictures look less hazy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable! I bought this filter several years ago for my Nikon 50mm 1.4 lens, and this weekend, the lens fell out of my bag and sailed straight onto concrete. A horrible smashing sound followed, and I was certain the lens was ruined. When I removed the lenscap, I saw the filter had shattered into a million pieces; I was certain the shards of broken glass had also scratched the lens, if it wasn't already cracked from the drop. On closer inspection, the filter left absolutely no scratch on the lens, and miracle upon miracles, my lens still works perfectly! I am buying a replacement for my lens ASAP--it's like having a personal bodyguard for each of my lenses. Do yourself a favor and insure all of your lenses with quality filters, as well, because you never know when one of yours will have the notion to take a swan-dive!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from For lens protection Always in my list when buying a new lens even though they say that some lenses have built-in protection. However, I still need to find an easier way to remove the blemishes left on it by kids & even adults accidentally touching the lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good protection filter This is a good product, way better than the classic ones, this helps me with flare on 50mm 1.4, a thing that the cheaper one didnt. It has a good build, thin, easy to attach, but on the bad side its hard to clean, if u stick your finger on it, you got a job to clean. its not every cloth that will work on it, because the coating sticks to the fibers of the tissue, so it doesnt slide easily. as for duration i coulnt test it yet.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from UV Filter This filter is thin and does not add any distortion and does not interfere with the clarity and details. I always keep it on the lens and I have one for each of my lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product!!! I use this for landscape photography in extremely brutally sunny climates so lens protection from the sun is a major issue for me. This product works great as it doubles as a protector from glare and harmful uv rays as well as drastically enhances image quality in sunny conditions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Get The Good Stuff Don't waste your money putting cheap glass in front of any good lens. All my Hoya filters have performed their job without fail and do not degrade the quality of the lens I put them on. I keep buying them for that reason.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality Filter I have used Hoya Filters for over forty years and always appreciate the quality of filters they make. This is a great filter to protect the investment you make with your camera lens. The thin metal ring design is excellent for digital cameras. There are cheaper filters out there, but why put a cheap filter on an expensive lens!! I remove the filter when doing outdoor night time photography.
