HOYA FUSION ONE NEXT is the renewed series of FUSION ONE filters based on the new HOYA optical technology. The series originates from the long selling HOYA PRO1D series, which has been widely used by amateur and professional photographers all over the world. The word "ONE" in the naming of this series is left as legacy of HOYA PRO1D, in memory of its contribution to photographers' creativity, with the belief that this new series will serve as well for many decades ahead.
The HOYA FUSION ONE NEXT series is joining the HOYA's high-end line-up with the fusion of all highly valued key specifications. This makes it a great all-around filter that meets the needs of photographers in most situations and is therefore especially recommended for amateurs and advanced photographers. For users who are shooting in dusty environments or just hate cleaning the filter in general, we recommend the upgraded version FUSION ANTITSTATIC NEXT. For generally extreme environments, the premium series' HOYA HD Mk II and HOYA HD nano Mk II are being recommended.
The FUSION ONE NEXT CIR-PL comes with an 18-layer coating applied to both sides of the filter glass that drastically minimizes the chance for ghosts and flares caused by the filter. The coating also has stain resistant and water repellent properties, protecting the filter glass from fingerprints and smudges while making cleaning fast and easy.
The glass of the FUSION ONE NEXT CIR-PL is made of HOYA's professional grade optical glass for top image quality.
The filter is equipped with HOYA's exclusive two-piece, low-profile frame with front filter thread, made of lightweight but robust aluminum.
One great effect of the FUSION ONE NEXT CIR-PL filter is the ability to enhance the color contrast. Through filtering out vertical light waves in the air, the colors in your picture, such as the blue of the sky and the green of the foliage, will look more defined through deeper and more natural color tones.
The ability of the FUSION ONE NEXT CIR-PL filter is not limited to enhancing the color contrast. It can also control and even completely remove reflections on various kinds of surfaces, such as glass, water or plastic as seen in the photo below.
