Some­thing of a house­hold name, Hoya fil­ters have long been pop­u­lar with pho­tog­ra­phers all around the world. A wide range of Pro ND fil­ters are avail­able in in­cre­ments from two- to 10-stop op­tions, each of which uses the same ‘Metal­lic ACCU-ND’ type of coat­ing. Hoya claims that this not only yields a truly neu­tral colour bal­ance with­out any no­tice­able colour casts, but also main­tains colour in­tegrity be­tween dif­fer­ent strengths of fil­ter.

In our tests, we found that the Hoya 10-stop fil­ter gave the most ac­cu­rate colour ren­di­tion of any fil­ter in the group on both our cam­eras. Its pro­file isn’t quite as slim as those of some of the com­pet­ing fil­ters but we still didn’t ex­pe­ri­ence any vi­gnetting, even when us­ing the Hoya on ul­tra-wide lenses.

Typ­i­cal of Hoya’s Pro se­ries fil­ters, the build qual­ity is ex­cel­lent
