Product Description

Size Name: 55mm

Product Description

These filters offer both amateur and professional photographers HOYA's famous quality at reasonable prices. They have coatings applied to both surfaces to suppress reflection and increase light transmission.

Light rays which are reflected become polarized. Polarizing filters are used to select which light rays enter your camera lens. They can remove unwanted reflections from non-metallic surfaces such as water or glass and also saturate colours providing better contrast. The effect can be seen through the viewfinder and changed by rotating the filter. The filter factor varies according to how the filter is rotated and its orientation to the sun. They also enable colors 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. HOYA's polarizing filters do not affect the overall colour balance of a shot.

I've given a five-star rating because, first and foremost, the optical quality seems to justify such a rating. Also, the slimline mount seems to be very well engineered: Just the right amount of friction to keep the filter at the chosen angle, but easily rotated as required, with a smooth, 'quality' feel to the movement.

The slim mount is great for use with a wide-angle lens, or when using the polariser in conjunction with a second filter: Less likely to cause vignetting than a standard-thickness rotating holder.

Only been using the filter for a few weeks (bought it to go with a new Nikon DSLR), but first impressions suggest quality and reliability.

No surprises, really, as I've been a Hoya user for many years, but it's nice to see their quality being maintained, and available at such a reasonable price.

Pretty good but vignettes on my Canon 17-40mm at 17mm with a Lee Wide angle 100mm filter adapter - OK at 19mm which is that I do - however 1/2 the price of the Sigma - happy overall if I remember to shoot at 19mm :)

Bought this to cut glare when taking photos across water but the most noticeable difference in the pictures is the colour enhancement. Clouds become more evident. We recommend to any serious amateur - professionals will already have one.

I purchased this slim CPF to replace a standard width Hoya CPF that I had purchased for my Panasonic FZ200 bridge camera which causes vignetting at the corners when using the widest angle setting. This slim version has a very narrow (1.5mm) ring that screws onto the lens which unfortunately also has a slightly smaller diameter that the threaded part it screws into. This makes it extremely fiddly and difficult to remove from the lens. This is not helped by the fact that the ring seems to 'stick' firmly in the fully screwed in position. I have now gone back to using my standard width Hoya CPF which also has a smooth and easy unscrewing action. I do not now use it with the widest angle setting of the camera. I have given it two stars because it might be OK with other cameras.

Build quality is very good works like dream, but for a big name in the filter Field so it should. I would recommend this seller as delivery was very quick. I would definitely buy again if or when needed.

Perfect fit from HOYA as you would expect, I use it on my Canon 50mm 1.8 in conjunction with a 52mm UV that's already on and the hood with no problems what so ever with it. Top product and great quality as you would expect.
