The Hoya YA3 Orange filter is built for black and white photography. It increases the contrast between reds and yellows. This is especially helpful for distant outdoor shots taken with a telephoto lens.
For Color Photography: While this filter was designed for black & white photography, it can be used with color film to produce specific color effects. The YA3 is particularly useful in color landscape photography.
HOYA Multi-Coat (HMC) filters are recommended for enhancing the performance of today’s multicoated lenses. These popular filters minimize reflection, reduce flare and ghosting, and result in over 97% average light transmission.
