Hoya has launched new USA-exclusive Solas infrared neutral density filters. The company says its new IRND filters offer a consistent color balance across the density range while also suppressing infrared, the end result being a balanced image with reduced ‘IR contamination’ like excessive digital artifacts and color shifts.

Hoya has launched the new Solar IRND filters in the following sizes and densities:

0.3 (1-stop) – 49mm ~ 82mm
0.6 (2-stop) – 49mm ~ 82mm
0.9 (3-stop) – 46mm ~ 82mm
1.2 (4-stop) – 49mm ~ 82mm
1.5 (5-stop) – 49mm ~ 82mm
1.8 (6-stop) – 46mm ~ 82mm
2.7 (9-stop) – 49mm ~ 82mm
3.0 (10-stop) – 46mm ~ 82mm

B&H Photo currently lists the filters with the following prices: 46mm ($48.90), 49mm ($48.90), 52mm ($53.90), 55mm ($61.90), 58mm ($69.90), 62mm ($85.90), 67mm ($93.90), 72mm ($100.90), 77mm ($120.90), and 82mm ($151.90).
