The Hoya 55mm PRO Neutral Density filter utilises it's new metallic ACCU-ND technology to yield a truly neutral colour balance. The Hoya PRO-ND range is aimed at the still photography and HDSLR video markets.
Hoya's meticulous use of optical glass and ACCU-ND coating on both surfaces ensures no colour shift as you move from one density to the next - a common problem with other brands of neutral density filters. In conditions of extreme light intensity, such as sunshine on snowy mountains or on the beach, or when using a camcorder, ND (Neutral Density) filters are recommended as essential.
Neutral Density filters are often ignored by photographers, but they have several uses and offer the possibility to achieve otherwise unachievable results. ND filters appear grey and reduce the amount of light reaching the film, they have no affect on colour balance.
The Hoya 55mm PRO Neutral Density filter has four main uses:
- They enable slow shutter speeds to be used, especially with fast films, to record movement in subjects such as waterfalls, clouds, cars, seas etc.
- They decrease depth of field by allowing wider apertures to be used, which helps separate subjects from their background.
- They decrease the effective ISO of high speed film (ie: above ISO400) and allow it to be used outdoors in blight situations.
- They allow cine and video cameras (which have fixed shutter speeds) to film subjects such as snow, sand or other bright scenes which would normally cause over-exposure.
