About Hoya Filters
Japanese manufacturers are renowned the world over for their attention to detail and accuracy. Who better to get a camera filter from than Japanese optics company Hoya?
Hoya have been creating camera filters for decades and all that work has produced a dizzying array of filters to suit your protective needs and artistic desires. Explore our edit and we’re confident that you’ll find the right Hoya filters for you!
Hoya protective filters
Photographers disagree on a lot of things: the best camera bodies, what kind of lenses are best, how to use editing software, the list is endless! There is something they can all agree on though: photography is expensive! With even the cheap lenses costing almost triple figures, you’re going to want to do everything you can to keep your lenses safe. That means buying a protective Hoya filter.
Designed to interfere with your camera as little as possible, the protective filters snap onto the front of your camera’s lens. Once installed they’ll protect it from accidental smudges and scratches, as well as hazardous environmental effects like dust particles. These Hoya filters are an absolute necessity for all camera owners!
Physical objects aren’t the only thing that Hoya filters can guard against. They can also save your camera from an invisible enemy: UV light! Film exposed to too much UV light gets blurry and the colours shift towards a purply, blueish hue. Among our collection you’ll discover anti-UV Hoya filters that block out almost all UV light, keeping your film stock in pristine condition. If you’re rocking an old school film camera, then these Hoya filters are essential extras.
Hoya colour filters
Hoya protective filters are just the start! Whether you’re a professional photographer looking to expand your business into a new style or an enthusiastic amateur looking to experiment, Hoya colour filters modify your shots with exciting and interesting effects!
The hottest technique in photography at the moment is taking shots with a slow shutter speed. With a long exposure time this technique lets you capture details and depths of colour that pass by both your regular set camera and the naked eye.
The dream-like quality of this technique is fragile though, with too much light your photos will look washed out, destroying the definition you were trying to capture in the first place. The answer to this paradox is an ND low-light Hoya filter.
These grey glass filters work like a pair of sunglasses for your camera, reducing the overall light levels and only letting the right amount in. Whether you’re preserving the way light plays off clouds during a sunset or trying to capture the haze of a meadow in mid-summer, these Hoya filters will make sure your magic hour truly is magical.
Night-time photography has a different problem entirely: light pollution. The residual light from even a small town can bathe the night sky in an unsettling orange glow. Enter the Starscape filter. This range of Hoya filter reduces frequencies on the lower end of the light spectrum, cutting through the ruddy murk and revealing the stars shining above. With the better contrast these Hoya filters provide, you’ll be able to take wonderful photographs of your favourite constellations without packing your bags and heading into the wilderness.
These are just some of the Hoya filters available in our edit. In order to learn about them all you’ll have to start browsing. We’d wish you good luck but we know you won’t need it!
