Hoya 62mm Circular Polarizer (HMC) Multi-Coated Glass Filter

B&H # HOCPMC62 Mfr # A62CRPL
No Longer Available

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 62mm Circular Polarizer (HMC) Multi-Coated Glass Filter:

          One of my better filters in my gear. I like the way it treats the sky, giving more definition to the clouds. It also subdues reflection that some of my cheaper filters don't. Hold it up to a T.V. and see it completely black out the screen. That's the sign of a good polarizer.

                  Still useful with digital for deepening sky tones, and removing reflections - try it with images containing wet objects such as rocks on a shoreline to lower glare
