Better than more expensive filters

  • Excerpt: If you search the internet, you will find a Polish web site that tested many different brands of UV filters for UV absorption using a spectrophotometer, as well as resistance to flare/ghosting, quality of construction, and ease of cleaning. The Hoya HMC filters came out on top, ahead of some far more expensive German filters. Digital cameras don't need UV filtration, but film users such as myself still need it.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable

Just what the doctor ordered

  • Excerpt: I take many outdoor shots and have always used a polarizing filter. I never considered a skylight filter until I read some reviews on your page. The color balance was noticeable immediately. This will save me many hours with photoshop correcting these issues. For that alone I thank you.

Filter is of the very best quality

  • Excerpt: If you intend to put a protective filter on the front of your expensive lens, you would be well advised to put the highest quality Muti-coated filter on your lens. Not only will the filter protect the glass of your lens but a top quality filter such as the Hoya Multi-coated glass filter will enhance the clarity and contrast of your photos. The coatings on Hoya filters are fused to the filter under high heat.

77mm Skylight 1B

  • Excerpt: Works well to protect the lens. I had one prior to this one and broke when the lens dropped, save the lens, cheap insurance! Images are still crisp and clear. Tonal change is pleasing but very slight compared to without the filter.
  • Pros: clear, Crisp, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable

  • Excerpt: Hoya HMC filter with almost no wear, just needed a thorough cleaning to be like new.This may be an older series of filters, but the performance is still excellent, the HMC line is my go-to for value and no compromise optical quality.

  • Excerpt: Hoya are excellent quality filters. Hoya's company also makes optical elements for some of the bigger lense manfs. Solid, clear, good value for price at 77mm. Use it as a lens protector.

Good as it gets

  • Excerpt: Hoya is my preferred brand for camera filters. I have a number of these skylight 1B HMC filters on all my lenses for protection and also to remove some of the blue from the sky. Since I live in the mountains of S. California at 7,000 ft elevation the sky is a deep blue almost all the time and the UV content is very high. Very easy to get a sunburn here even in the winter.
