About Moose

Moose Warm Polarizer filters, an exclusive collaboration between Hoya and respected wildlife photographer and conservationist B. Moose Peterson of Wildlife Research Photography, are a combination of a polarizer and an 81A warming filter.

For many years, polarizers have been used to remove reflections from non-metallic surfaces such as water and glass as well as being used to darken blue skies to increase contrast in scenic photography.

When using a camera with a split beam metering system (a metering system that employs a polarized half mirror) which is most of today's auto focus camera bodies, traditional linear polarizers will cause exposure errors due to their light absorption properties. Circular polarizers yield the same optical effect while not causing exposure problems with modern metering systems

A side effect of both linear and circular polarizes is they "cool down" or make the over-all color balance of a scene slightly bluish. The addition of the 81A glass corrects the color temperature, bringing the scene back to the original 5500K for daylight film's color balance. The 81A glass creates a much more pleasing and warm color balance to the entire scene while the circular polarizer increases color contrast and reduces the effect of atmospheric haze.

Great 2 for 1 filter.

I shoot film sometimes, and there's no white balance adjustment like digital. Stacking both a polarizer and warm filters produced vignetting with my Pentax 645 45mm wide angle lens. Now I can put this filter on and get the effects of both a polarizer and warming. It's not as warm as an 81c or Tiffen 812, but there's a noticeable difference. It's not multicoated, but I don't spend the extra $$$ for MC filters anyway. Image quality has been great for me so far with this filter. I also use this

I also use this on my smaller lenses with a step up ring adapter. I always use generic 67mm screw in lens hoods with it. When the hood is mounted to the front of the filter, it's so easy to rotate the polarizer. Just grab the hood and turn. But it's best to turn it clockwise to eliminate the chance of unscrewing the hood or filter.

Poor Design - glues itself to UV filter

On the first use, the filter secured itself firmly to the B+W UV filter and couldn't be separated. I'm a strong person, and I could get the two filters to budge from each other.

Hoya Moose 67mm Warm Polar Filter

By

The Hoya Moose 67mm Warm Circular Polarizer Glass Filter is effectively two filters in one piece of glass. The Warming effect is the same as an 81A filter. A Polarizing filter may produce an image that is a little cooler than desired. This filter attempts to create a more natural image. The results are usually very pleasing.

I live in the Southwest and just started using this type of polarizer and so far have been happy with the results.

Balancing economy and performance

By

I've always had a linear polarizer on my Olympus OM-1 lenses for outdoor work, and was pleased to find this for my new Nikon 18-105. Although the effect is not as pronounced, circular polarizers will make clouds pop against the sky, and this one maintains a better color balance for the foliage and red rocks common in the West.
