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. Filter factor is between 2.3 and 2.8 (approx. +1.3 stops).

This unique filter is the result of a collaboration between Hoya and respected wildlife photographer, B. Moose Peterson. It combines the advantages of a polarizer with the warming effect of an 81A filter.

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

      Finally got to use this filter on our trip to Hawaii, poor weather at home! With bright sunlight, dramatic clouds and plenty of glare I used the filter a lot. The warming effect helped keep the tones off the blue side. great quality and price.

          Helps to create an image not quite as stark (for want of a better word) as results from a standard polarizer.

            As with other Hoya filters I own, this one
            is of very high quality. Spectacular results.
            If you like "punching up" colors, this
            is the filter for you.

                        I purchased this filter for use with my Nikon D5000/ Sigma 18-250 lens. Took it to the Austrian Alps and managed to catch beautiful weather where everything was still plush and green but a freshly fallen snow capped the mountains and peppered the trees in the higher altitudes. This filter was really helpful in catching the bright snow and dramatic clouds while still being able to capture the lush green and beautiful colors of the lower landscape.

                            Very nice filter combination for bright sunny day. I used it while in Yellowstone and Grand Teton. Many shots benefitted from this filter.

                            One problem though I noticed was when it wasn't sunny, but with gray threatening clouds it did make things a bit too dark.

                            I forgot I had it on and went indoors.....ugh! Not good. Had to keep exchanging UV filter for this warm polarizer for indoor shots or overcast outdoor ones.

                                        This is a great filter. It deeply enhances blue skies, clouds, and warms colors. I keep it on for all shooting situations.

                                            This is the first polarizer I've ever used and I like it. I mostly photograph wildlife but recently have been getting into scenery and I'm happy with the results so far- especially with some waterfalls I've photographed, it removes the glare nicely.
                                            You do have to be careful which way you turn it so it doesn't screw off but its easy to use.

                                              I use this filter mainly for landscapes. If you want to make the sky and clouds pop this is a must. Only negative is this is a dark filter and you will need to compensate exposure setting for it.
