Product Description

The Hoya Circular Polarising Filter allows you to significantly reduce reflections and glare from non-metallic surfaces. A camera angle of 30 degrees from the reflecting surface (glass water etc.) is ideal for maximum effect. The Circular Polarising Filter also enables colours to become more saturated and appear clearer with better contrast. This effect is often used to increase the contrast and saturation in blue skies and white clouds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Functional and solid with great results 2 Nov 2007
By D. Sim
Verified Purchase
I'm not a professional photographer but own a Canon 400D SLR. I was very disappointed with my landscape shots until I bought this beauty.

As a hobbyist I wanted the lovely polarization of my outdoor shots but didn't want to break the bank to get it- this Hoya filter is perfect for that. Construction is sturdy, screws on easily, and adjusting it is smooth.

For this little cash if you own a DSLR and take outdoor shots you need this in your life!

5.0 out of 5 stars Super colour saturation and reduced reflection 29 Nov 2008
By brainleek007 TOP 500 REVIEWER

Polarising filters are magical things. They can reduce reflections from non metallic surfaces with merely a twist of the ring!

Another use of polarising filters is to enhance colour saturation. Have you ever seen a photograph with the deepest blue sky you've ever seen and wondered how the photographer did it? Have you ever looked at your own pale blue, wishy washy skies and thought how on earth do I do this!?!? Look no further.

By turning the ring on a circular polariser you can adjust the amount of the effect it will create. They work best when the lens is pointed at 90 degrees to the sun, in other words the sun is on your left or right, not in front or behind. They are useful wherever you want deeper colour saturation too such as on foliage. A polariser can cut out the reflection of the white sky on glossy leaves and foliage for landscape shots.

Anyway, this Hoya polariser is well made and does all of the above. It's not the slimmest so you may need to look elsewhere for a special slim version if you're using on a super wide angle lens to avoid cropping image corners.

For everyone else this is a versatile and handy addition to your kit at a very good price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best value I could find 7 Aug 2009
The Hoya 58mm circular polarising filter bought from CameraKing UK was the best value I could find on the market. They delivered promptly and efficiently to Norway, not the easiest place in the world to find, at less than half the price available locally.
It particularly enhances the sky and sea scapes that I have been taking this summer and makes the most of my Canon 400D.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, great price 4 July 2009
This is the Basic polariser from Hoya - they do at least 2 others, the Super and Pro. For the price, this is hard to beat - it has good build quality and good optical quality. If you just use the standard quality lenses with your camera, I don't think you would do better but if you use high end lenses such as the Canon 'L' series, then the better Hoya polarisers are going to give better results.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great filter 24 Jan 2011
To those that have just bought their first SLR, this is a must. It works very well under shini conditions, brings up the colors and allows you to take really amazing pictures. It's very easy to handle, no complications getting it on and off the camera.
