With Hoya HD glass, this protector filter won’t obstruct the image you’re taking at all. You won’t even notice it’s there as it’s doing its job to protect your lens. You can go about shooting without any effect to your shots. Ultra clear and highly transparent, it won’t affect colour balance or contrast.
The HD optical glass on this filter is tough as nails. It’s four times stronger than normal, with optical glass that protects your lens from all kinds of bumps and knocks. Dirt won’t get in, and it is protectant against grease and water splashes, which can damage the glass element on the lens.
This HD protector filter has a multi-layer coating that is not only strong, it is also completely resistant to oil and water repellant. The coatings also make it scratch and stain resistant. You’ll find it is much easier to clean the smooth surface that wipes away oily smudges easily. The coatings also act as an anti-reflective barrier, stopping ghosting and flaring in your images.
The super lightweight aluminum-alloy filter ring makes the Hoya HD 77mm protector filter nearly weightless. It won’t weigh you down when you’re busily shooting. In fact, you probably won’t even notice it’s there. The thin frame is compatible with most lenses, including wide angle lenses.
With its knurled front edges, this filter has a more textured grip that makes it easier to mount or remove it from a lens. There’s nothing more frustrating than peevishly trying to take a filter off that won’t budge. But this will easily click on and off without hassle.

Use a residual oil remover to get rid of stubborn smudges. The ROR is unlike other lens cleaners. It’s designed to emulsify and remove the microscopic film of oil residing on the surface that is caused by environmental pollution. You could also try a LensPen that contains carbon. Years ago, people used to clean glass with a newspaper. Why did this work so well? Newspaper is covered with printing ink, which is made with a carbon compound. The carbon molecules actually have a unique ability to absorb huge amounts of oils and contaminants. If only we still had newspapers lying around… But, the cleaning tip of the LensPen has a unique carbon compound that takes the residual oils right away.
Try the LensPen Hurricane Blower. It’s the most efficient, safe and environmentally friendly way to remove dust, simply using bursts of air. The non-toxic rubber bulb has a double-valve design that prevents breathing in dust. It’s also resistant to warm and cold temperatures alike.
Be cautious when cleaning filters that you don’t have any debris in your cloth or tissue. Also, don’t spay your residual cleaner directly onto the filter. Spray onto your cloth or filter tissue first.
You can find the thread of your filter by checking the inside of your lens cap. This is where the filter will attach to the lens.
