The Hoya 49mm HD3 UV Filter is a general use, clear filter designed to
absorb ultraviolet light and reduce the bluish cast of daylight. Aside from the
reduction of unwanted blue casts, no additional coloration or contrast is
created, and adjustments to exposure are not required while using this filter.
To prevent internal ghosting and reflections while providing over 99.7% light
transmission, 16 layers of anti-reflection nano coatings are applied to each
side. This total of 32 coatings offers a high degree of protection to the filter
substrate and helps it to stay clean for longer than uncoated filters. The nano
coating formula associated with HD3 UV filters results in an improved beading
effect when in contact with water for greater cleaning efficiency and is also
effective with regard to oil and stains.
Constructed from chemically-hardened optical glass, the Hoya 49mm HD3 UV Filter offers enhanced resistance to scratches while providing clarity and color fidelity. It also features a thin, lightweight, aluminum-alloy filter ring to minimize the potential for vignetting.
This UV filter is also useful as a general protective filter to leave on lenses at all times. Such filters help to reduce dust and moisture from reaching your front lens element and provide additional protection in case of drops or situations where scratching could occur.
