The Hoya 52mm Variable Neutral Density Filter is a solid variable neutral density filter providing an exposure reduction of about 1.5 to 9 stops. The 0.45 to 2.7 density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than would normally be required. The degree of density is easily controlled by rotating the front filter ring, helping you to predetermine the additional exposure length required. By slowing your exposure time or increasing your aperture, you are able to control depth of field and convey movement more easily.

Hoya A-52VDY Overview

The Hoya 52mm Variable Neutral Density Filter is a solid variable neutral density filter providing an exposure reduction of about 1.5 to 9 stops. The 0.45 to 2.7 density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than would normally be required. The degree of density is easily controlled by rotating the front filter ring, helping you to predetermine the additional exposure length required. By slowing your exposure time or increasing your aperture, you are able to control depth of field and convey movement more easily.

This filter is constructed from optical glass to maintain image clarity and is set within a slim profile aluminum ring, which helps to reduce the likelihood of vignetting when used on wide-angle lenses, and does not feature front threads.

Does this filter rotate continuously or does it stop at the min and max settings? I'm looking for a 52mm filter that has a stop at the min and max. I have a Bower filter that does this and it's much easier to use.

question

Is this filter made from plain glass or is it coated/Multi-coated? I think even plain Hoya filters may have a single antireflection coating on each side. Is this the case for this filter?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Hoya 52mm Variable Density Filter is made from high quality, optical glass, however, the glass is not coated.
