K-Series Filters

The K-series Neutral Density line of square filters comes packed with many features, all of which comes as a result of spending time with photographers to find out what is most important to them when shooting out in the field. It is important to us to make sure we produce a line of filters that are versatile, and easy to use, tough enough to withstand all the elements and have no compromise on image quality. Let’s face it, how an image passes through the glass is the most important function of any filter. You can expect outstanding performance in colour with little to no shift, retained sharpness when zooming in on long exposure shots & heavily reduced flare and reflection due to the hardened, multi layer High Definition coating on both sides of the glass.


Get Tough with Corning® Gorilla® Glass

At the very heart of H&Y filters, we have taken our manufacturing process to the toughest level by incorporating technology from Corning®. The glass we use is Gorilla® Glass 3 which is not only chemically strengthened — its atomic configuration is formulated so that the glass is more durable. Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 is fundamentally tougher and more damage resistant even before chemical strengthening. And yet, how tough is it? Gorilla® Glass 3 enables improved damage resistance and toughness compared to previous Gorilla glass compositions. This is a unique feature of Gorilla® Glass 3. Something Corning is able to provide due to a proprietary glass composition that is better able to resist the deep scratches that cause glass to break.

Magnetically Stackable Filters

One of the many benefits to H&Y magnetic system is the ability to stack filters. As there are no guided rails required to attach filters, you simply stack up to 3 filters magnetically. The first filter can be locked into place on the side of the holder with any additional stacked filters being able to slide up and down with little effort. Remember, you still have the option to use a H&Y 95mm drop in filter to the rear of the mount offering even more versatility in a square filter holder system.

Compatibility

Once you have decided which filters you would like to buy, the next step is to purchase a K-series filter holder. Made from aircraft grade aluminium, the K-series holder is lightweight, robust & works with most lenses using the supplied step rings, 67mm, 72mm, 77mm & 82mm. You can also buy specific holder kits for Fujifilm XF8-16mm and Olympus 7-14mm.

What is Neutral Density (ND)?

Instead of reducing the aperture to limit light, you can add a Neutral Density filter to limit light, and can then set the shutter speed according to the particular motion desired (blurring water movement, for example) and the aperture set as needed (small aperture for maximal sharpness or large aperture for narrow depth of field (subject in focus and background out of focus). Using your camera, you will see the image right away and can choose the best ND filter to use for the scene being captured by first knowing the best aperture to use for maximal sharpness desired. The shutter speed would be selected by finding the desired blur from subject movement. The camera would be set up for these in manual mode, and then the overall exposure adjusted darker by adjusting either aperture or shutter speed, noting the number of stops needed to bring the exposure to that which is desired. That offset would then be the amount of stops needed in the ND filter to use for that scene.

Hard Edge Graduated Filter In Use

In this example, you will see how a hard edge ND grad can help balance the light between sky and landscape. No filter shows how the colour and detail in the rocks are dark as a result of the sunset overexposing the foreground. When applying the K-series hard edge grad ND 0.9 filter, the light becomes more balanced over the entire image while maintaining detail and depth in the clouds.
