Circular Polarizer - 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 colors 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.

Multicoated to minimize reflection at the filter surfaces which reduces flare and ghosting.

NOTE: Circular polarizers are specifically designed for use with auto-focus SLR cameras (They will also work on manual systems and video cameras without problems).

This filter eliminates ultraviolet rays to remove haze from outdoor shots as well as polarizing the light to remove reflections, and increase color saturation, without affecting the overall color balance

          Comments about Hoya 58mm Circular Polarizer (HMC) Multi-Coated Glass Filter:

          The filter has excellent polarizing properties, and is well constructed. It is somewhat more expensive than the other circular polarizing filter I have been using, but there is no comparison in filter quality. I had anticipated that this might be the case, but was still a bit surprised how much more effective this filter is.

            Really makes a difference. Originally bought the less expensive Tiffen Filter kit and could not tell a difference with the Circular Polarizer. Spend the extra money to get a better filter. Well made, easy to mount, nice hard case to store in, if you chose.

                To start out with; I haven't taken many pictures with the filter yet. I live in northern Europe, it's January, not too much bright sunlight to filter here and see the effects.. :) I liked the filter straight out of the box. Very thin, yet solid metal construction, good thread, and the filter can turn freely and separately from the the thread. Just need to wait for the summer to use it. :)

                              Hoya filters are the best value for the money. I get the HMC coatings to reduce glare.

                                  Good price for the quality. Multi-coating is top notch.

                                    I purchased a 58mm Circular Polarizer (HMC) Multi-Coated Glass Filter by Hoyea. I use it on my lenses for the Olympus E-Volt 410 and it does exactly what it is suppose to. I bought it mainly to take pictures of waterfalls and it does an excellent job. I would recommend this product.

                                      Any time you wat to cut glare and unintended reflection, or deepen a blue sky, a polarizing filter is a must. And the Tiffen multicoated glass circular unit is among the best for a good price. Added bonus, is lense protection. It does not affect the autofocus. It rotates easily, but stays put where you set it.

                                        This filter is 'permanently' attached to my camera. I purchased my first one almost a year ago and love the results. I wear polarizing sunglasses and prior to using this filter found the resultant colors of the photos not to be what I originally saw and a bit lackluster. Being able to adjust on the spot to compensate lighting conditions is great ... spinning to watch a dull sky turn a beautiful shade of blue.

                                        I have yet to find something I didn't like and when I recently scratched the filter, I just had to replace it.
