Overview

2x Filter Factor, +1 Stop, 3800K Color Temperature to 5500K

Description

The Hoya 52mm HMC 80C Light Balancing Filter is uniform in colour and with a mired shift value of -81, can be applied to purposely create a cool cast over an entire image. This effect can be obtained under daylight when this filter is used on a film camera system with daylight film installed, or on a digital camera system with its daylight white balance setting selected. The Hoya 52mm HMC 80C Light Balancing Filter is also useful for balancing light sources with a colour temperature of 3800K for daylight film, which is designed to accurately reproduce colours under 5500K light sources.

The greater the difference between the colour temperatures they are designed to correct for under 5500K, light balancing filters for daylight film are considered to be progressively stronger in their effect when used to cool a daylight image.

This filter is constructed from optical glass for increased clarity and colour fidelity. Its aluminium-alloy filter ring is durable while remaining lightweight. To prevent internal ghosting and reflections, each glass surface includes three layers of anti-reflection coating. These coatings also offer greater protection to the filter substrate and help it to stay clean for longer than with uncoated filters.

When used, the Hoya 52mm HMC 80C Light Balancing Filter's 0.3 density darkens the entire image by 1 stop. This reduction in exposure can be compensated for by adjusting the aperture setting of the lens it is placed on, or the shutter speed of the camera being used.

Australian Shipping Via DHL
DHL offers a great express shipping service to Australia from New Zealand. We are proud to be able to offer express shipping to main cities on the east coast of Australia, within the same timeframe ( If not quicker ) than local Australian courier companies. Prior to the Covid-19 outbreak, service standards for these main centers was overnight. However these services have been impacted greatly, and as such the overnight service has been suspended. Overnight shipping will likely resume once things have returned to normal.

Qualifying main centers include:

  • Brisbane
  • Sydney
  • Adelaide

Whilst this service is extremely efficient and will likely be delivered within 1-2 days 99.9% of the time, it cannot be guaranteed. In the case where something were to go wrong with your delivery and it doesn’t arrive within the specified time frame, in most cases it will be delivered by the next day.

While not all major cities are eligible for overnight delivery, they still benefit from this great service. Other centers throughout Australia will have a typical delivery ETA of 2-4 days. (Excluding rural delivery address where this ETA can be extended to an additional three or more days).

If you require urgent shipping and you don’t reside in one of the cities stated above, please contact us and we can find a solution that works best for you.

Please Note: Shipping via DHL is not available to PO boxes and/ or parcel boxes etc.
