What’s Inside the Box
HOYA Sq100 Holder Kit
I find the packaging of the system very modern and minimalistic in design. No product shots, no information except the big HOYA logo and the name of the product. That’s a very welcome change, at least for me. It makes you even more excited and eager to open it right away.
Inside the white square box we will find a HOYA wallet-pouch containing the HOYA Sq100 Holder, an 86mm CPL filter and the required geared adapters (86-86mm1 and 86-82mm2)
186-86mm geared adapter is used when your lens filter size is 86mm or with adapter ring to fit lens with the filter size less then 82mm, for example 77mm or 52mm.
286-82mm geared adapter is used when you have lens with filter size 82mm or with adapter ring to fit lens with the filter size less then 82mm
The lens adapter3 rings are sold separately, and are available in all sizes, to fit any lens.
3Basically the adapter rings are simple step-up rings, from each lens filter diameter to 86mm.
There is also a small plastic bag that contains: an additional slot (with its correspondent size screws), an Alen key and lastly two (2) extra screws in case you miss some of the original ones.
Back on the pouch, it has one (1) big socket to carry the holder and three (3) thinner sockets to store either three square filters, or like in my case, two filters (on the double back sockets) and to carry any extra adapter rings and/or the CPL filter in the remaining front socket.
