Product Description

Size Name:62mm

Product Description

These filters offer both amateur and professional photographers HOYA's famous quality at reasonable prices. They have coatings applied to both surfaces to suppress reflection and increase light transmission.

The Hoya HMC UV Filter is a multi-purpose, fine-weather filter that is designed to optimize the photography experience of digital SLR users. UV filters absorb ultraviolet rays that often make outdoor photographs hazy and indistinct, and can be constantly fitted to a lens to provide improved clarity and colour balance, as well as to provide protection to your lens. Hoya Digital HMC filters are optimized for use with digital SLR cameras, but they are also perfect for traditional 35mm SLR applications, including black and white photography

HOYA HMC 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 colour. HOYA HMC filters are recommended for enhancing the performance of todays multicoated lenses.

Having used this make of filter 30 years before I was pleased to see it still available. The product is well made and a good fit. Delivery was prompt as expected.

Hoya filters are excellent, and if you go to their website, you will find that the HMC (Hoya Multi Coated) series are a step up from the "standard" range. It is very easy to pay more than this for a standard filter, so shop around for the HMC level, which reduces the reflection given by the glass.

The visual effect given by a UV filter is very subtle but still clearly visible, especially in sunny landscape shots. They certainly never seem to have an adverse effect, and so are ideal to leave on a lens permanently as a means of protection. If you want to really visibly enhance your outdoor shots, go for a polarising filter, which can be fitted on top of this if you want to, although this might lead to some vignetting on wide angle shots due to the combined length of the rings.

Overall, excellent and convenient lens protection at a very reasonable price.

In my "unreviewed items" this purchase is showing as made by Hoya, sold and fulfilled by Amazon.

I am fairly certain that mine bought via Amazon, was fulfilled by Amazon but sold by a seller. I have this filter in 58mm, 72mm & 77mm versions and they are fine. This one though I am certain is a dud or a fake. The green reflections even in broad daylight are shocking. Sadly I was in South America at the time and had it delivered to a friend, by the time it had got back to me, it was more than 30 days after my purchase and Amazon wasn't really interested in my objections.

I went back to Amazon to purchase 52mm and another 58mm B+W UV filter.

Buyer beware when buying filters online, check them in different lighting conditions, Hoya UV(C) filters should not have green flares on the images

I've been actively taking pictures for around 20 years now, and most of the time I have been using Hoya HMC UV filters as protective filters on most of the lenses I've had, with the occasional B+W or Sigma Pro in-between as well.

In practice, and after more than 100,000 photos taken, I've noticed no discernible difference between the more expensive brands and Hoya's filters. They do the job, they do it well, and no image degradation, flares or other image artefacts have ever been possible for me to attribute to the filter.

A decent protective filter for my Fujifilm S1 when used with an adapter (in my case, the JJC RN-S1 JJC RN-S1 Camera Filter Lens Adapter for FUJIFILM FinePix S1 Replace AR-S1). I have noticed, however, that this combination affects the clarity of my images for some reason, and I'm now considering a different filter, either in specification, or manufacturer.

I freely admit to being a "pixel peeper" interested in the finest detail on my shots (something the S1 can do very well, mounted or in steady hands), in other words the kind of person who will notice these things; if you are a "happy snapper" instead, this may be just the job for you, since at typical print resolutions or on smallish screens the images are very good through this filter. Of course the main virtue is in many cases that the lens is nicely protected, and the UV filtering is almost secondary!

If you are at all concerned with maximising the quality of your images it may pay to check this filter out in a formal way, perhaps going out taking identical pictures with and without, and forming your own opinion. I have reservations about it, but perhaps I'm expecting rather more than the filter can deliver, and other people will find themselves well contented with it.

I bought this filter to protect the front element of a new 17-85mm lens on my Canon Eos 500D digital camera. I have used Hoya filters throughout my photographic career which spans 40 years and have always been happy with optical quality, and this example follows the trend. However, when I reviewed my photos later on the computer screen I noted there was some vignetting at the 17mm wide angle end of the zoom range. This was not visible in the camera viewfinder. Clearly, this issue would affect any filter fitted to the front of wide angle lenses, especially deeper ones like polarisers, or if you wish to stack more than one filter. Buying "slimline" filters may reduce the problem. Naturally this annoyed me initially until I realised that I composed my shots in the viewfinder and this only shows 95% of the sensor image. A quick crop to remove the outer edge in an image editing program removed the visible vignetting and gave me the original picture I'd photographed. Doing away with the filter is not an option, and I'll put up with the inconvenience rather than risk scratching the front element of a very useful £500 lens!

This filter is good, well built and it appears to do its job (protecting the lens)

Pros:
1) Relativly inexpensive
2) Well built.
3) The Hoya web site says this filter has greater than 97% light transmission.
4) Multi coated.

Cons:
None that I can think of.

I will over time be replacing all my lens protection filters with the HMC version as these are a good compromise (cost against quality) between the standard and super HMC filters.

I have not experienced any real problems with his filter but would advise purchasing a thinner filter for wide angle lenses in the long run it's worth the extra cash.
