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.

If you're out walking on a lovely day - in the mountains or at the beach - and you want to get a fabulous shot of a cloud-filled sky or make the water seem more saturated, then a polarizer is the way to go. This filter is the best way to make the clouds stand out, increase or decrease the saturation of the ocean or increase or decrease the reflection off the water. You can also use this filter when shooting into glass or windows since it will, again, either increase or decrease reflections.

If you're shooting black and white and want to simulate a threatening storm, try throwing on a Red filter. The vista will take on the appearance of an imminent, ominous storm.

Along with a UV or Skylight Filter, a polarizing filter should be a part of everyone's gear bag. It can turn a run-of-the-mill image into a stunning, creative photo by increasing color saturation.

The advantage of Hoya filters is that Hoya puts one layer of anti-reflective coating on each side of their glass. It is not bare glass. Even if the glass is not multi-coated, this kind of production tends to minimize flare and ghosting.

Hoya is one of the largest manufacturers of glass in the filter industry. In collaboration with its parent company, Tokina Optical, Hoya continues to strive to produce some of the best glass on the market. Currently, they hold 40% of the world's market for optical glass.

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

    Not a high end product but for those of us on a budget this filter does the trick. I use it primarily to get rid of refections on water but also to bring out detail in clouds and it works well for both. I will say, however, that it can be difficult to determin the actual effect the filter will have after rotating but suspect that may have to do with a rather dark viewfinder window in my camera rather than the filter itself.

            I have tried other budget brands like Tiffen, but hands down, this Hoya filter outdoes them all. I use it to improve the quality of my kit lens, bringing out tremendous detail in cloud scapes, brightening and deepening the color of fall leaves, and so on. It is easy to use and clearly has good build quality. I would buy it again in a second.

                            Installed this filter on my Canon EFS 118-55mm lens and it sat for a few days. Went to remove it and it refused to budge. After some Google searches discovered this is common. Heated the lens/filter with a hair dryer and using a rubber glove was able to get the filter off.
                            Otherwise performes as expected.

                                      I had a polarizing filter on my old Pentax K-1000. The polarizing effect is very gradual with this CPL and I forgot how much a polarizing filter can enhance photos and how much fun it is to use. This filter fits my Canon EOS Rebel T3 perfectly. Hoya makes good quality filters.

                                              I do like the filters I purchased. They can be a little tricky putting on sometimes or taking off, but once you get used to them they are just fine.

                                                    Makes skies bluer and reduces glare and reflection--no problems.

                                                            We have a lot of hazy bright days here in the Northwest when the sun actually comes out, which appears frustratingly overblown on camera when shooting subjects outdoors. The filter is amazing for creating contrast and saturated color in the sky, it even has a nice effect on skin tone. I look forward to testing it on water reflections.
