So who makes them?, what are they?, what do they do? and why would you want one? I will try and answer these questions below.
Firstly who makes them?.......
There are several companies that make filters for camera lenses, but Hoya, "the subject of this review", are one of the biggest and well known brands of filter around.
Hoya was founded in Japan in 1941 and have their headquarters in Shinjuku, Tokyo, they manufacture optical products ranging from laser equipment and photographic equipment to contact lenses, and they are one of the world's leading manufacturers of photographic filters.
In 2007 they announced that they were to merge with the well known Japanese camera manufacturer Pentax, in 2008 they announced that they would keep the Pentax name for their camera and lens division.
What are they?.......
Quite simply, they are a flat and optically correct glass filter in a metal mount, that can be screwed to the front of your lens, they have a large veriety of uses and come in many colours for use in special effects and colour corrections, including the UV correction filters discussed here.
What do they do?......Read more ›
This filter is cheap and specific enough to be left on permanently as a protector for your valuable front lens, if you feel that's necessary. It's double-threaded, so you can screw another filter or lens accessory onto the front of it once it is mounted. The filter has a reasonably low profile and will not interfere with most lens hoods, but vignetting may occur on very wide angle lenses, especially when using a full frame camera.
It is important to use clean micro-fibre cloths when cleaning coated lenses and filters to remove any greasy smears, but the use of a puffer and camel-hair brush is advised beforehand to remove any gritty particles.
