The Hoya HMC UV(0) filters absorb ultraviolet rays which can make outdoor photographs hazy and unclear. A muliti-purpose fine-weather filter for color as well as black and white films. Also serves as a permanent lens protector. They offer incredible performance in light transmission and colour balance due to the 12 layers of Super Multicoating applied to the surface of the filter. An increased resistance to flare results in images that can be recorded at wide apertures without compromising the performance of your lenses. Their 5mm slim profile means vignetting problems can be avoided, and makes them ideal for use with wide angle lenses.
