The Hoya Fusion Antistatic UV Filter absorbs ultraviolet rays, which often make outdoor images appear blurry and unclear. This happens especially when taking pictures in the mountains and at the sea. Thus the view is clear, the blue cast in the distance is suppressed and the image contrast is increased. This versatile fair-weather filter is suitable for color and black-and-white shots and also serves as an ever-usable lens cover, which is further enhanced by its antistatic properties. Special UV glass absorbs almost the entire spectrum of UV rays, making images clearer and sharper and haze weaker.
The Hoya Fusion Antistatic filters are the first to use a newly developed antistatic coating that acts like a magnetic field in the opposite direction to keep dust and dirt away from the filter surface. The antistatic effect is achieved by a special 9-layer super-multi-coating formula, which also greatly reduces reflections without impairing light transmission. The flat aluminium filter frame is constructed in two parts and prevents vignetting. This makes the filter perfect for use with wide-angle lenses.
The Hoya Antistatic filters require far less maintenance due to their special properties. The hardened, antistatic surface also repels water and rain and can be easily and gently cleaned of stains and fingerprints if necessary. This protects the glass and prevents scratching by small dust and dirt particles.…more
