Product Description

Size Name: 58mm

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.

The Hoya HD Circular Polarizing filter features hardened optical glass that has 4 times the breaking strength in ANSI standardised testing (ANSI Z80.3 : 2001) where steel balls of varying sizes and weights were dropped from a height of 50 inches onto the glass.

High Transparency Polarizing Film - This polarizing film is the same as that used in the latest high definition LCD TV screens. It has 25% higher light transmission than standard polarizing film used in current photographic filters.

Hardened 8 Layer Waterproof, Scratch & Stain Resistant Multi-Coating - Newly developed industry leading 8-layer multi-coating results in an average light transmission rate of 99.35% between 400 and 700nm (visible spectrum). These coatings greatly reduce reflections off the surface of the glass allowing you to capture more light in your photos. As with all HOYA multi-coatings, HD HMC coatings are applied in a furnace at high heat, bonding the coating to the surface of the glass. This process is called "hard coating" and it is far more durable than other coating techniques. The chemistry of the top layer is formulated not just to be more durable but to be resistant to oil stains. This means that finger prints and other oils are much easier to remove.

I bought this HD Circular Polariser (CPL) after having used the Hoya range over the past few years and being extremely pleased with the brand overall (quality, build, polarizing effect and ease of being able to screw on and off)
Overall, I prefere the Hoya range over many other makes and brands and find them to create a deep polarizing effect (to increase saturation of colours, skies, bring out clouds and reduce reflections).

However, with the exisiting range of most brands of CPLs, they are commonly known to reduce the amoung of light entering the sensor by between 1-2 stops of light (in other words, they amount of light hitting the sensor is reduced by half to a quarter of the amount without the polarizer attached).

This means that longer shutter speeds are necessary (great if you can hold the camera steady for blurring water, or on a tripod, not so great if you are handholding your shots).

This CPL is a new HD filter, which allows around 90% of the light to hit your sensor while keeping the polarizing effect the same. This means that you can maintain higher shutter speeds and stil get a great effect.
This enables me to keep the CPL on at all times (except for indoor shots and low light shots)

This CPL is not to be confused with the pro-1 range (which still reduces the amount of light like the regular CPL; the only difference with this being the that the pro-1 range is a very thin filter, thereby reducing vignetting at very wide angles.

I highly recommend this CPL and Amazon has one of the best prices around (currently deeply discounted)..

I have a 5D MKII and use this on a 17-40mm and there's no vignetting, even at 17mm. Awesome build quality and stunning results.

Size Name: 77mm Verified Purchase
More expensive than most circular polarisers by quite a margin & I'm guessing it's a Kaesemann type that means it is fully edge sealed & is about 1/2 to 2/3 a stop faster than ordinary ones. The level of anti-reflection, resistance to scratches & marking is reputedly very good.
This polariser has a low profile that makes it suitable for wide angle lenses - I use a 77mm version on a Nikon 16-35mm f4 VR without any additional vignetting as well as a 24-70mm f2.8.
Probably overkill on kit lenses but if you have expensive lenses, don't skimp on filters!
Like all polarisers (especially low profile ones that have less to grip on), care is needed when screwing onto any existing filters such as a UV. Make sure the 1st filter is fairly tight on the lens & that the polariser is only tight enough not to rotate in its thread, alternatively only rotate cw when viewed from the front to save the polariser from unwinding!

I was after a 'slim' polarising filter for my 10-22mm wide-angle zoom and this Hoya is superb. It causes no vignetting and is made of a strong impact resistant glass. It also allows more light thorough than some CPL filters so does not make such a hit on your exposure.

Size Name: 77mm Verified Purchase
I bought this filter mainly because of good light transmission and anti-scratch resistance. Prior to purchase I was wondering how the plastic screwthread would work on my existing metallic B+W UV filter. It screws on fine and I don't see vignetting when using both together on a Tokina 12-24mm wide angle lens.
Due quite possibly to my ignorance that the following may apply to polarisers more generrally, I was frustrated intially that, having screwed the filter on, I couldn't get it off again. I discovered by chance that if you merely rotate the polariser anti-clockwise, the main thread suddenly frees up.

This poly-filter makes a great difference to photographing sunny landscapes (beaches, water, mountains) enhancing blues and greens. it also adds a lot to micro photography, crisping up the colours without further post-editing needed.
Very easy to thread on and off, on top of other filters already on the camera.
My only concern is that the thread on the sides is showing signs of chipping. I am sure this is normal, though, and am confident the filter will last at least as long as lens (tens and tens of years) if not longer.
All in all, a reliable good quality product.

The Hoya 67mm HD Digital Circular Polarizing Filter i just bought from Amazon is quite amazing!
The photos became more contrasted and the colors got vivid and real.
The landscapes gained the most, especially in hotter days when the extremely intense sunlight used to ruin the photos color and contrast.
I've had other polariser filters, but none as good as this one.
It's not the cheapest there is, far from it, but it's worth the price.
I certainly would buy it again!

Order delivered promptly (arrived next day). Having already done my homework on Circular Polarising Filters I decided on the Hoya HD Digital PL-CIR.
The filter performs superbly is very very tough, light and has a lens coating that enables grease, finger prints etc. to be cleaned off easily. As careful as we are, we all know how easy it is to get those on there and not so easy to clean off in a hurry. The glass is specially hardned making it much more resistant to breakage than normal optical glass, it is also loses less light most polarising filters. Most polarising filters lose 2 stops but the Hoya HD only loses 1 stop.
