Hoya XHD55UV overview

  • 1Description

The Hoya 55mm HD UV Filter is a general use, clear filter designed to absorb ultraviolet light and reduce the bluish cast of daylight. Aside from the reduction of unwanted blue casts, no additional coloration or contrast is created, and adjustments to exposure are not required while using this filter. To prevent internal ghosting and reflections while providing over 99.35% light transmission, eight layers of anti-reflection coatings are applied to the glass. These coatings offer a high degree of protection to the filter substrate and helps it to stay clean for longer than uncoated filters. The coating formula associated with HD UV filters also promotes effective cleaning with regard to water, oil, and stains.

Constructed from chemically-hardened optical glass, the Hoya 55mm HD UV Filter offers enhanced resistance to scratches while providing clarity and color fidelity. It also features a thin, lightweight, aluminum-alloy filter ring to minimize the potential for vignetting.

This UV filter is also useful as a general protective filter to leave on lenses at all times. Such filters help to reduce dust and moisture from reaching your front lens element and provide additional protection in case of drops or situations where scratching could occur.

    Hoya XHD55UV reviews

    55mm HD UV Filter is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hoya does the job I purchased the Hoya 55mm Ultraviolet UV Haze HD Digital filter to protect the lens of a superzoom camera. Since a superzoom camera lens is not interchangeable (unlike a digital SLR), it is particularly important to protect the lens. The Hoya filter does the job. I purchased it at about a 66% discount ($). It's specifications indicate a very high quality anti-reflection coating (transmission over 99%), so that it has very little negative impact on the performance of the camera (i.e. very little speed loss), and this also minimizes flare from the filter. Fits my 55mm lens opening with no difficulty.Although the filter also provides UV reduction, I doubt that feature is of much value for a digital camera. Unlike film cameras, I expect a consumer digital camera to have little UV sensitivity anyway, so filtering out the UV serves little purpose. However, I got a very good price, and filtering the UV also does no harm.
