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.

Just what I expected


from VA  -  Photo Enthusiast

This replaced the one we had borrowed from a friend to see how it works. We had to get one for ourselves.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Will this work well on a 72mm Tamron 18-270 lens? I'm debating between this, a Tiffen and Hoya polarizing filter. Thanks
JIMMY M  The Hoya Moose 72mm Warm Circular Polarizer Glass Filter is effectively two filters in one piece of glass. The Warming effect is the same as an 81A filter. The Circular Polarizer effect is the same as the filters made by Tiffen and Hoya. The real decision seems to be do you really want the warming effect for all your Polarized photos. This is very subjective and it depends on your intended targets.
