Hoya 77mm (Moose) Warm Circular Polarizer Glass Filter

B&H # HOWCP77 Mfr # B77CIRPLW
You Pay: $64.25

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).

    I use polarizers just like any other photography tool, sometimes I remember to use one, sometimes I don't. And like other tools any change to the image regardless of how subtle might be the "thing" that makes that particular image "just right" rather than one of the thousands of mundane photographs on your external hard drive. I haven't used this filter tons yet but thus far I like it's warming affect which seems to clarify and enhance all colors where standard polarizers work mostly on blues when I use them. I shot these two photos for you to compare for yourself. Both shot with Nikon 28-70 2.8 at F4, ISO 200 using a D7000 on a terrible smokey cool morning. Both frames handheld Aperature priority. The affect is subtle but notice it in the shadowy areas and the alteration or saturation of color. I think this filter has the potential to be very very good given the right light and weather conditions. I'm anxious for an opportunity to test that theory. Maybe the coast in a few weeks hmmmm

    No anti-reflective coating on it's back side to prevent ghosting and lens flare.

    Since it's a circular polarizer, it means it's made for digital cameras.

    Anyone who has used any raw image file will tell you that you can get the same effect of an 81A filter being changing warming the color temperature in your editing software.

    A couple waste of money.

              I find I turn to this filter every time I am shooting outdoors no matter what time of day. Early morning, mid day and late evening this filter improves the overall look and removes any harsh light from your scene. The warming effect also softens the photo in ways which appear very natural. You will be amazed at the appearance your photos have just using this filter.

                This filter works great for me as I shoot a lot of photographs outdoors near the beach. It helps to remove the brightness of the sun and really give my photos a more natural look. If I am outdoors in the daylight hours it is always on my camera. Thanks Moose Peterson for putting together such an enjoyable camera/lens accessory.

                                  Comments about Hoya 77mm (Moose) Warm Circular Polarizer Glass Filter:

                                  I bought this filter for my new Canon 5D Mark II because I do a lot of outdoor portraits. I was drawn to the before/after shots with this filter and figured it might actually help make a difference with my photography.

                                  I LOVE the colors that are in my shots with this filter! They're so rich and full. Sure, you can probably "fake" these colors in post-production with Photoshop, but it sure is nice to have bright, vibrant color photos to start with!

                                    Great Circ Pol.. Works great on my Canon 17-40. Very little vignetting at 17mm.

                                    I use this filter for landscape shots, water shots and any situation where reflection of light is a problem. The filter will take the gray cast off of water shot in dim light also.It makes colors pop.

                                              I have used this filter at several ball games and on many outdoor shoots. I have been pleased with the end results and how easy it is to rotate the filter.
