Product Spotlight: Hoya Photo Filters

Posted in

Hey Gang: I have a new product spotlight for ON1 Customers, and a great promo code to use on one of my favorite pieces of photo gear- Hoya Photography Filters! Watch as I talk about how I use my Hoya HD3 Circular Polarizer and the ON1 Photo RAW 2019 beta to pull out the rich details and warm colors that we can find photographing leaves and landscapes in Autumn.

Use code: on1promo30 for a 30% discount on regular priced items at Hoya’s Website – expires November 30, 2018.

Known for being Japan’s first specialty manufacturer of optical glass, Hoya continues to push the boundaries of advanced optics technologies.

      Peter, I just chatted with Hoya and tried the code. It worked perfectly for me. It applies to anything in their store not in the clearance section. Go ahead and try again. It should be working. They did say a few things are out of stock on the USA site, but to check back as they expect a large shipment from Japan sometime next week.

    Hi Hudson – You have strong preference for the HD3 series of Hoya filters. Is there any other series that you would recommend from Hoya for the more budget minded buyer? If so, what are the pluses and minuses of that series?

    Thanks – Dan

      Hey Dan,

      I’ll be totally transparent. The only non-HD3 I’ve used was the Anti-static EVO. It’s a great filter too. Very color true and high quality. The thing that makes the HD3 stand out from it is the UV’s insane durability, the thin rings of the Polarizer and that filter’s reduced light loss compared to any other polarizer I’ve used. All of Hoya’s glass is top notch, but I haven’t tested any others personally.

        Thank you for the quick response and honest opinion! I have the HD3 UV filters and love them. I’ll probably end up getting a single HD3 Polarizer in a size bigger than my largest lens and use adapters to accommodate my smaller ones ( a trick I learned from you in your Photographing the West series…a great course by the way!). At least now I have something on my Xmas list to give to my wife :)

        No problem Dan. I do exactly the same thing. I go 82mm on every lens. It looks funny on my tiny 49mm Sony 35mm, but it works great. :-)

    I gave up & ordered the NXT cp filter from Amazon. The problem wasn’t the code, but on their website & captcha
