About Hoya

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 Features

  • Creates dramatic sky/cloud contrast.
  • Saturates colors without changing color balance.
  • Mount rotates to control amount of effect.

Good Filter needs to be a little better

Found the filter to be good but could use a little more umf, when it comes to color rendition and consistent results. The filter could be improved to cut more of the uv out and making the color more consistent.

It's a "Hoya"

By

I bought My first Hoya in the seventies and the quality hasn't slipped. Hoya is still "Top of the Line".

Great filter at a great price

By

I take photos as a hobby and a lot of my shots are outside. This filter helps keep my color and glare where it should be.

Works great for me just use a Lens hood

By

I use the polarizer mainly for nature photography. It reduces glare or reflections from leaves and wet rocks effectively and enhances clouds in distant landscape shots.

High quality, low price

By

I have achieved excellent results with respect to cancellation of reflections off glass surfaces as well as rendition of blue skies. I tested the quality and efficiency of the polarizer coating by crossing with a sumitomo brand optical polarizer and achieved near-100% light cancellation.

Good for the price

By

This filter is a good value for the price, but it's not the finest polarizer I've ever used. This is an area where spending top dollar really does make a difference. That said, do you really need to spend top dollar to get what you NEED? If you're anything like me, and I know I am, I'm happy to use this mid-range filter to get the shots I want. If I were a pro getting paid for my work then I would step up to a better one. The rotating part is a bit narrow and like all polarizers it can sometimes be fiddly to attach and remove. I prefer a larger rotating ring, perhaps with a tactile bump or divot so I can feel where the line is without having to look. I know people will say that a taller filter will interfere with the image but be honest, when's the last time you had 3 or 4 filters stacked up?

Works as advertised

By

I own several Hoya filters. I purchased the CPS filter to use on my Nikon 50 mm F1.4 lens for glare reduction and as a lens protector. The filter functioned exactly as expected reducing the glare on indoor shots. In landscape photography I was able to saturate the blue colors of the sky to a nice deep hue negating post production manipulation. I plan to purchase a second CPS for my telephoto lens

Great filter!

By

This is a must have filter for digital photographers. Primarily because the effect it performs can not be duplicated in post-processing. The only possible con I noticed... since the outer ring must be turned to adjust levels, sometimes you inadvertently unscrew the filter from the lens.

Works great when it's on the lens

By

I'm a new photo enthusiast, so it could well be that I'm doing something wrong, but I had difficulty keeping the filter on the lens. After I put in on, I would pull straight back to make sure it was secure, but somehow it ended up in the leaves several times. I barely rescued it from falling in a creek.
