The Hoya 58 mm UX UV filter is a general use clear filter that helps to absorb ultraviolet light while blocking the blue haze in your photos. It is highly beneficial whenever you are shooting somewhere there is a lot of UV rays e.g. sunny day, high altitude and beach or with analog film cameras. For most photographers, the first filter to get is a UV filter so that if their lens accidentally drops they would go and simply buy a new filter instead of a lens.
With a newly added water repellent coating this redesign of the HMC UV(C) filter, now integrates into the new entry class Hoya UX series along with the CIR-PL Slim filters providing high-quality filters with contemporary functions at an affordable price.
The 10-layered HMC-WR coating with water repellent features provides fingerprint, oil and smudge resistance. As a plus it also blocks moisture and dust from reaching your lens so you don’t have to worry much about cleaning your lens too often. This 58mm UX filter features a slim aluminium-made profile frame to avoid vignetting when attached to a super-wide lens.
Though not visible to the naked eyes, UV rays may affect the image when shooting in locations like seaside or mountainous environments, resulting in blurred contours or faded and whitish images. UV filters can suppress the UV spectrum contained in daylight that mainly causes these effects. This filter can be used with both film and digital cameras and assures more vivid images. In addition, by keeping it constantly attached, this filter serves as everyday lens protection.
Anti-reflection coating prevents unwanted reflections and increases light transmittance.
Water-repellent coating has been added to the anti-reflective coating. This coating repels water drops and makes it easier to clean the filter surface from dirt or fingerprints.
The slim frame assures no vignetting even for wide-angle lenses.
"UX" in the series name stands for "User eXperience", as to indicate all the experiences that users will acquire through using these filters and all that comes with. By naming this series UX, Hoya aims to offer users better individual experiences through all the activities connected with photography.
