Hoya A55UVC overview

  • 1Description

The Hoya 55mm Ultraviolet UV(0) 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 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 multicoated digital lenses.

Multicoated 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 A55UVC reviews

    55mm Ultraviolet UV(0) Haze Filter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 44.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again I use the machine a55 sony alpha, and notice the difference in colors, the photos look more vivid, and protect the lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is the 55mm Ultraviolet UV(C) filter not the UV(0) The filter you'll get is the UV(C) filter (MFR # A55UVC)Hoya now makes as a replacement for the older UV(0) filter (MFR # A55UV). The older UV(0) filter was a much better quality than the newer model, you can see the difference on your images. It's definitely worth the extra few bucks... I actually returned this one as I saw that B&H still had in stock the UV(0) filter, just do a search on the B&H site for Hoya A55UV without the C and it'll show up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good filter Not too fancy, just a good, solid UV/protection filter. I haven't noticed any differences in the photos when using this filter, but that's not why I use it. I put one of these on every lens I own, as soon as I get it out of the box, that way I don't ever have to clean the lens itself, and it stays in pristine condition. Bottom line, you can't go wrong with Hoya's HMC line of filters.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome filter for the buck! I bought this for my tamron 90mm. I thought it was made in japan since I saw the pro1 version that was made in japan, but no, I was surprised that it's made in the philippines by tokina corp. (so still came from japan) and it does looked like pro made filter. It works great for my macro lens and I would love to buy one like this again in the future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value Nothing Fancy, but then again, nothing fancy is needed. Protects you lens from scratches and protects your film from UV. Hoya products are always great, you never have to worry about them. Great value for the cost though! two thumbs up for this filter!
    Date published: 2013-10-28
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product Great for protecting the actual camera lense from scratches and too much dust. Attaches easily, so should be simple to put on a new one, should I ever need to. Can't really tell if having the UV filter improves quality of the pictures, though.
    Date published: 2010-10-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Protection For the Lens I'm using this filter primarily just for protection from physical damage but it does work to filter that haze, too. This one's from Hoya so you can't go wrong. I never had any problem with it so I give it a 5.
    Date published: 2010-01-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits and works fine. I bought it for my Panasonic DMC-FZ50 (new 2006). I didn't know I could screw on other lenses, so I should have purchased this UV lens a few years ago---if only to protect the Leica lens on this camera.
