Hoya A-72UVIR overview

  • 1Description

The 72 mm UV and IR Cut Filter from Hoya is a lens filter that, when attached to your lens, permits only the visible spectrum of light rays to enter the camera and get captured by the sensor. It blocks out both the higher frequency ultraviolet rays, and lower frequency infrared light rays. This is important to digital photographers because the CCD and CMOS sensors found in our cameras are extremely susceptible to catching UV and IR rays just outside the visible spectrum that have a very negative impact on image quality.

The filter offers even greater versatility than is already found in a combination UV-IR filter due to its front and rear threads. They permit stackable standard-size filters to be attached, giving you even more filter effect options, while also accommodating a standard lens cap as well.

Another benefit to using the UV-IR filter is that it can also reduce the effects of atmospheric haze to a greater degree than would be found with a standard UV filter. This means that sharper images with more depth and finer, richer color gradations are possible when utilizing the filter's effects in your photography. This combination filter is a very convenient option for those who seek a clearer and sharper image when captured outdoors, while getting the benefits of two filters in one.

More so than a traditional UV filter, this combination filter cuts through atmospheric haze to a greater degree than you would otherwise find
When using color CCD or CMOS camera sensors, which are extremely susceptible to UV and IR rays, this combination filter can produce greater accuracy of color in digital images than is found with traditional IR filters
Cut to transmit only those light rays that fall within the visible spectrum of light, this UV-IR filter blocks both ultraviolet rays found below 390 nm, as well as infrared rays above 700 nm
Low-profile, rigid aluminum filter ring provides support and is compatible with stackable standard filters for a greater combination of effects

    Hoya A-72UVIR reviews

    72mm UV and IR Cut Filter is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic as Expected This is a phenomenally well made filter. The filter has no noticeable negative impact on the clarity of my other optical components. The filter is well crafted from high quality materials. One thing to keep in mind is that this filter is not necessary for cameras with optical low-pass filters, as the internal filtering in such cameras filters out IR. For such cameras, you're better off buying a high quality UV filter. Doing so will save you money and from possibly filtering out a portion of your visible red spectrum.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective Filter Have used Hoya filters for many years with my cameras. This is a different one with both UV and IR filtering but initial photos taken are on par if not better than those with my previous Hoya filter. Since my camera for me is an expensive one, I wanted a quality filter and feel that Hoya and this one in particular serve that purpose.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A quality UV IR filter at a reasonable price This filter works as advertised - it works well with the BlackMagic Ursa Mini 4.6k, the Pocket Cinema Camera and the original Blackmagic Cinema Camera.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from It works It works, I guess. I'm no expert at detecting IR contamination and a novice at color correction and grading.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great with the BMPC4k & SLR Magic VND It does what it's supposed to. Cuts the red back down to normal levels in my camera. Overall, I'm very happy.
