About Hoya

Absorbs the ultraviolet rays which often makes outdoor photographs hazy and indistinct. A muliti-purpose fine-weather filter for color as well as black and white films. Also serves as a permanent lens protector.

HMC (Hoya Multi-Coating)
These popular filters are renowned for their ability to minimise reflection at the filter surfaces which reduces flare and ghosting. 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 lenses.

Most Liked Positive Review

 

True multi-coated UV filter

Was purchased to protect the camera lens and side benefit to reduce UV outdoors. Is not just glass but has a true multi-coating and is very reasonably priced.

Most Liked Negative Review

 

Major disappointment

Very disappointed, in 2 days of shooting the filter lens is totally scratched up from placing the lens cap on the camera. The slightest touch of the lens cap while trying to affix, will scratch this filter. Don't waste your money on this one.

Excellent filter

from PENNSYLVANIA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I read reviews and asked the Adorama staff their opinion of the Hoya UV filter and never got anything but positive comments. I use it on my Canon 40D and it allows me to take beautiful crystal clear photos. i even had one photo of my son batting published in my local newspaper. The Hoya UV will protect your valuable lens without letting you know its there when you look at your photos. It's inexpensive, but not cheap, and I recommended it.

Great Filter. Worth the price.

By

from Fort Worth, TX  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

A great filter that is worth the price. It has stood up to abuse from sand and humidity. It is still going strong.

Here's the correct way to clean a filter

By

from Huntington Beach, California

Things to have on hand to clean a filter or a lens. A soft lens brush, an air bulb, micro fiber cloths, rubbing alcohol Carefully brush anything off the lens/filter, followed with several squirts of air. Use two (2) micro fiber cloths, the kind that an optometrist provides with a new pair of glasses. Put some alcohol on one cloth and softly wipe clean the lens/filter. Lastly, use the second cloth to lightly buff the lens/filter. Do not use lens tissues.
