|Technical specifications for Hoya HMC UV Filter 62mm
||UV-Filter / Schutzfilter

HMC (HOYA MULTI COATED)
The popular multi-coated filters are known, that the reflections are extremely weak at their surfaces which reduces flare and "ghost images" are even more suppressed. An average light transmission of over 97% is achieved, which leads to high brilliance and well balanced color. HOYA HMC filters are recommended in order to fully exploit the performance of today's multicoated lenses.
