Hoya launches new filters

Posted on Nov 1, 2019

The new ProND and Starscape light-pollution filters from Hoya are designed for long exposures and astrophotography respectively.

The first of Hoya’s newest additions is the ProND filter kit, which includes ND8 (three-stop), ND64 (six-stop) and ND1000 (ten-stop) density filters in a folding, padded case. The filters are made from high-quality optical glass, which is coated front and back, reducing the light spectrum and creating a neutral colour balance. It’s even possible to use two ProND filters together. For example, ND8 and ND1000 combine to give a thoroughly shady value of ND8000.

The Starscape light-pollution filter shares the same construction as those in the ProND kit. The filter’s special optical glass filters out yellow and green light pollution, leaving users with more natural-looking images that require less correction.

Both the ProND kit and the Starscape light-pollution filter will be available in 49mm and 82mm diameters, and will hit shops in December.
