About Hoya 55 Circula

Light rays which are reflected by any surface become polarised and polarising filters are used to select which light rays enter your camara lens.
• They allow you to remove unwanted reflections from non-metallic surfaces such as water, glass etc.
• They also saturate colors and increase contrast.
•Polarizers come in two variations but have the same effect. Linear polarizers work with older camera meters; Circurlar polarizers are designed for today's newer split-beam metering systems used in auto focus cameras. Check your camera's manual.

Hoya 55mm circular polarizer glass filte


from Northern MI  -  Photo Enthusiast

Being in northern MI we haven't had the sun to try this out. Will be heading to the caribbean soon and I'm sure that it will get a lot of use.


polarizers, who needs em?


from Pennsylvania  -  Semi-Professional

The first thing all amatuers should get for their lens is a polarizer. Not only will it give more color saturation, but it will protect the lens from dust, dirt, and fingerprints. After 40 years of photography, I've never been disappointed by Hoya. They make a superb lens at a decent price.




from Saint Marys, PA.  -  Semi-Professional

you gotta love these polarizers. screw them on and with very little adjustment, these babies work great. couldn't be easier. Color saturation seems to be enhanced, and contrast appears better.

Excellent Product, Excellent Price!


from Granville, NY  -  Photo Enthusiast

I found this polarizer to be extremely efficient. When two polarizers are crossed, 100% light cancellation is achieved if the polarizers are of the highest quality. I achieved near-100% cancellation by crossing this HOYA with a Sumitomo linear ploarizer. Construction is equally impressive. Rendition of deep blue skies and elimination of glare and reflections is excellent.
