Technical Details


Product Description

The Hoya Ultraviolet UV(C) Haze Filter is a wise initial investment. It helps protect your valuable investment from dust, moisture and scratches, which can lead to costly repairs. 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 digital lenses. Multicoated to minimize reflection at the filter surfaces which reduces flare and ghosting.   • Good choice for digital photography • If desired it can be left on the lens at all times for protection • Haze filters provide additional benefits of correction for Ultraviolet(UV) light which can register on film and videotape as a bluish cast and can obscure distant details • Ultraviolet filters allow you to correct for the UV effect to varying degrees

This item turned out to be the right quality and the right price for me (I bought two of them for two lenses). Research convinced me to buy a lens filter that had multi coating on it to go with the lenses that are multi coated. These had good reviews and a reasonable price, so I gave them a try. They showed up in good shape, went on easily, and are now doing exactly what they should be doing... protecting my camera without me noticing the difference.

The Hoya Multi-coated filter does not get in the way of excellent photograhps. Cannot detect any reflections or extraneous light from the glass, I cannot detect any difference in image quality in photographs taken with and without the filter. I consider it to be a high quality filter at least for the photo enthusiast.

This item is not labeled correctly. I ordered this item hoping it would be a UV-0, which I know is in part my fault. However, it would have saved me money and time if it were labeled correctly. It is actually Hoya HMC UV(C). This piece of glass has way worse flaring that another filter I purchased for a few bucks more. Check images for my comparison.

The worst part of this filter is it got stuck on my 300+ dollar lens and I freaked out because it wasn't budging. I was finally able to get it off without breaking my lens.
The other bad thing about it is the lens cover cap doesn't clip in all the way, like a previous review mentioned. I didn't think it was a big deal until I saw what it was like in person. See images to see what I mean.

All in all I would rather just fork out the extra money and get the same filter I already have or try and find a UV-0 like I was hoping this was.

I hope I read other reviews about multicoated UV filter much early. I use a normal ... UV Haze filter on my kit lens since the first day, 2 years ago! I can take some sharp pictures, but always feel a masking over the picture and have to use software to touch up. To attack glare I even bought a flower shaped hood. With this Hoya HMC zipped on, I can tell it's more clear through now. Adorama standard shipping is lightning fast. From placing order to getting the filters only took 4 days, including a weekend.

this filter received the highest rating of all UV filters at [...]- that is the Hoya HMC UV HMC (O) series (see actual test to view images on this lenstip site). There has been some mystery questioning what the difference is from the (O) to the (C). I called Hoya to inquire and get the latest: I just spoke with Glenn in support at Hoya regarding this same issue (O) vs (C). Glenn stated physically the (C) series is a slimmer design than the (O) and that is to reduce vignetting even further and that is the only difference betwen O and C. Technically they will provide the exact same results and are the exact same quality. I had asked what the "O" or Zero represented and also the (C). He stated Japan has never advised him as to what the symbols reflected. I asked is it possible the (O) is for Original and the (C) is for compact? He stated he had never heard that before and probably just a rumour. You can call any time for more info or verification at [...] - I called their [...] phone number.

I recently purchased a new Canon zoom lens (55-250mm AF/IS). Since the lenses these days have plastic bodies (as well as plastic screw threads for filters and lens caps!), I wanted to protect it from damage by adding a nice metal ring UV filter. Well, while on a night shoot, I dropped the new lens. It was in a cloth bag, but I just knew it was toast. I was pissed and said a few choice words... picked it up, and sure enough, the UV filter was shattered, into a bunch of sharp triangular shards of glass. The lens landed on the edge of the UV filter. After some careful yet forceful twisting, I was able to get the filter off. Once I air canned the fine glass particles from the shattered UV filter off the surface of the zoom lens, I attached it to the camera. To my amazement, the auto focus and image stabilization worked just fine. NO DAMAGE to the lens surface... thanks to the UV filter. And... the plastic threads on the front of the lens were undamaged... thanks to the metal ring on the filter. So... all I can say is a little $20 filter saved my lens! Well worth the price for the added protection - especially for many of the lens offerings these days. Buy it - hopefully, this will never happen to you, but if it does - you'll be glad you had the filter in place!

It protects your lens (Believe me, I know) and filters out haze making UV rays. Best of all, it doesn't color or distort your images. Don't get the cheaper stuff, because without the coating, they're more prone to ghosting. The cheaper ones tend to add distortions to your photos as well. Spend a little extra the coated Hoya, it's money well spent.

Well, as a UV filter, this is great. This was the third one I've tried and it is by far the best, with absolutely NO ghosting of bright light sources at all...
