As part of our Professional line, we’ve developed a premium selection of filters that guarantee quality, comfort and excellent pictures. The quality of the glass, the multi-coatings and the frames are all nothing but the best, so you can make every shot perfect.

ALL THE ADVANTAGES AT A GLANCE

  • Professional-quality glass
  • Professional-quality multi-coating
  • Professional-quality wide frame

THE QUALITY FEATURES OF THE FILTERS

ONE-OF-A-KIND CROWN GLASS

The foundation for our Professional line filters is high-grade crown glass. This special optical glass is ground and polished to perfect plane-parallel smoothness in order to eliminate distortions. This makes all the difference compared to lower-quality filter glass. Moreover, crown glass is extremely scratch- and shock-proof. Thus it can protect your objective while keeping your pictures in perfect focus.

The extraordinary features of the crown glass are supplemented by a high-grade coating. This allows even better quality photos to be taken with the Professional filters.

Above all, it’s the outstanding parallelism and planarity of the crown glass that permits flawless exposures.

THE YELLOW SHADING: THE MARK OF QUALITY

The slight yellow shading of the Professional UV filter is an innovation based on science. The complementary colour to that of the bluish ultraviolet rays below 390 nm is particularly effective at neutralising them.
Because ultraviolet light’s focal point is slightly offset forwards, these invisible rays can cause blurring, reduced contrast and ghost images. The yellow shading, however, does not influence light in the visible spectrum, and so will not affect the picture.<

MAKING THE DIFFERENCE, COATING BY COATING

At every transition from air to glass or from glass to air, some fraction of the incident light is reflected. With untreated filter glass, this loss is about 8% of the incident light (4% on each side). The result is blurring and low-contrast colours, as the light is scattered or doesn’t fully reach the camera sensor. In order to prevent this, filter glass is coated.

Hama Professional filters are even multi-coated. This makes them especially effective at preventing reflection and scattering of the light. Multi-coatings are ultra-thin, transparent layers of metal compounds that are vapour-deposited onto the filter glass. These layers reduce the reflectivity of the glass and allow the light to pass more softly and directly through the glass. The result is significantly more brilliant reproductions free of ghost images. Multi-coatings comprise 4 to 9 layers on each side of the glass.

HTMC COATING

  • 8 layers of coating (4 on each side)
  • This improves picture focus, contrast and colour saturation considerably.

C18 COATING + NANO

  • 18 layers of coating (9 on each side)
  • Nano coating reliably sheds water and dust.
  • A significant improvement in image focus, contrast and colour saturation.
  • Eliminates virtually all reflections.

The Professional multi-coatings prevent reflections above 390 nm (in the visible spectrum).
The filter glass blocks light rays under 390 nm (in the visible spectrum).

ADVANTAGES

  • Reduces reflections
  • Improved light permeability
  • Strengthens colour intensity, contrast and image brilliance
  • Dirt- and moisture-repellent surface coating
  • Filter is more scratch- and shock-proof

A SLIM FRAME FOR BRILLIANCE ALL THE WAY TO THE PICTURE’S EDGE

In wide-angle photography, especially, one problem is so-called vignetting: unattractive darkened areas at the edges of the exposure. This problem is caused by the filter being too thick and thus restricting the angle of the objective. The solution: the slim wide frames of the Professional filters.

Designed especially for wide-angle objectives and zooms, this wide frame is very slim and features a front thread. This allows attaching an additional filter, sunshade or lens cap.

THE PACKAGING: OF HIGH QUALITY – STYLISH – ELABORATE

  • The filter diameter can be seen at a glance
  • Inlay: transparent plastic box and foam
  • High-quality hot foil stamping emphasizes the product name
  • Stylish matt appearance in black colour

L-PROTECT HTMC WIDE

PROFESSIONAL PROTECTION FOR YOUR OBJECTIVES

The L-Protect HTMC wide is designed to remain permanently attached to the objective. It provides the objective with reliable protection from dust, dirt, water and snow as well as scratches, impacts, etc. The perfect companion on an action-packed shoot.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE:

  • Perfect protection for the front element of the lens
  • Colour-neutral

See all L-Protect filters >

UV 390, NANO

YOUR GO-TO FOR PERFECTLY SHARP FOCUS

The UV 390 C18 Nano wide blocks invisible UV rays up to a wavelength of 390 nanometres. While invisible it may be to the human eye, ultraviolet light can negatively affect the quality of images, especially landscape shots in the mountains, on the beach or at sea, for example. It can result in blurring, haziness and low colour saturation.

In addition to blocking UV, the UV 390 C18 Nano wide is also coated with a special nano-coating that reliably sheds dirt and water. This innovative UV filter can be left on the objective permanently in order to safeguard the front lens.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE:

  • Enhanced image sharpness
  • Prevents haziness
  • More brilliant colours
  • Perfect protection for the front element of the lens

POL-FILTER, CIRCULAR

THE ACE UP ANY PROFESSIONAL’S SLEEVE

The Clr HTMC wide polarising filter simply eliminates reflections from non-metallic surfaces such as glass, paint and water. For best results, it should be used with the reflective surface situated at a 30–40° angle to the rotatable mount of the filter. This is very important, because even the most advanced image editing software cannot fill in information that isn’t there.

Additionally, this polarising filter significantly improves the colour saturation and brilliance of landscape shots by eliminating even barely perceptible reflections (off of plants, for example). The effect is adjustable by means of the rotatable mount.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE:

  • Perfect picture quality
  • Saturated colours and perfect contrast
  • Fewer reflections
