The use of a digital SLR often involves the purchase of various more or less useful accessories. Just before the jungle of opportunities available to you, it is sometimes difficult to navigate. A point on the filters, elements that are placed in front of the objective lens to create special effects. In photography, filters are numerous and diverse, and often very useful to correct certain technical problems or to create special effects. Only today, these effects can be reproduced through the many existing photo editing software, and are therefore no longer needed. Filters HOYA (uv, polarizing and neutral gray) are circular filters picture quality and available from 37 mm to 82 mm in diameter. Many models HOYA HMC filters, HOYA pro1, HOYA ND400, Hoya 77 mm HOYA hd protector, HOYA polarizing.
A magical tool for taking pictures of landscapes ! The HOYA HMC NDx400 glass filter has several uses and offers the possibility to achieve otherwise unachievable results when shooting in bright sun. ND filters appear grey and reduce the amount of light reaching the film. They have no effect on color balance, and the multi-coated glass minimizes reflection at the filter surfaces, which reduces flare and ghosting.
Neutral Density filters are extremely useful when photographing solar eclipses and ultra-bright light sources. This filter reduces light values by 9 stops to less than 1/500th of its original intensity and allows safe photography. It can also be used to achieve super slow shutter speeds in daylight to render moving subjects invisible.
Neutral Density filters can be used mainly for :
- Enabling slow shutter speeds to be used, especially with high speed films, to record movement in subjects such as waterfalls, clouds, or cars.
- Decreasing depth of field by allowing wider apertures to be used, which helps separate subjects from their background.
- Decreasing the effective ISO of high speed film (above ISO 400) and allow it to be used outdoors in bright situations.
- Allowing cine and video cameras (which have fixed shutter speeds) to film subjects such as snow, sand or other bright scenes which could cause overexposure.
