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.

Eventually I capitulated and decided to buy a circular polariser which would be OK with the digital camera meters. but which one ? Well, not one that cost more than my second hand Nikon D40 did, that would be silly ! But then the raft of sub £10 unknown name filters didn't inspire me with confidence, screwing a possibly poor quality lump of glass on the front of a lens that cost a couple of hundred pounds would be equally silly. So, somewhere in the middle , not too cheap, not too expensive . Like Goldilocks' porridge, the Hoya one was just right: a very reputable specialist maker , a slim black metal ring, glass with coated (but not multi-coated, that costs much more ) surfaces. When at the correct angle to the sun ( not just by rotating the filter, but also by where you are facing ) blue skies are bluer, clouds are fluffier ( because they show up better against the sky) water is darker, just like my old linear pol. See my two photos, same scene taken within moments of each other. The darker blue sky shot is with the polariser.
Be aware that the sky darkening effect caused by a polarising filter may not be uniform over the whole of an image if you use a very wide angle lens, it's not a fault of the filter, but to do with the angle of the light from the sun and the enormous angle of light that a very wide lens collects. That's physics, you can't get round it with a different make of polarising filter. Vignetting (darker corners in an image due to the metal ring protruding into the field of the lens) is a different problem, but this filter is quite slim, I saw no vignetting with an 18mm (crop sensor, so full sensor 27mm ) lens. In fact the metal ring is so slim that if, like me, you leave a protective filter on all your lenses (and leave the lens cap at home) you may find it difficult to take the pol. filter off without removing the protecting one by accident ... in which case either get a pair of something like these iGadgitz Xtra Camera Filter Lens Wrench Kit [ 49, 52, 55, 58mm ] 2 Pack of a size suitable for your filters, or pick up a couple of those nice red rubber bands the postie drops on the pavement to give you a better grip !
My only negative is that filters these days seem to be suppied in boxes suitable for hanging display in shops, rather than the good old tough faceted two piece screw together round boxes which you could slip nicely in your pocket and which protect the filter beautifully. Happily I have a few old ones spare !
If you tighten it enough that the polariser can be rotated without unscrewing , you will have diificulty removing it from you lens.
If you tighten it just enough so that it can be easily removed from the lens, you can't easily rotate the polariser.
