Hoya 62mm Circular Polarizer Glass Filter

You Pay: $34.99

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.

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 the best on skin tone (so beware!), but looks amazing when used in the outdoors. Everything is richer... looks like I used Photoshop to make the colors pop!

                      Hoya has different classes of filters but I chose the mid range because I don't use them that often. Yes, there are filters that cost several hundred dollars each but I have always trusted Hoya to give me a quality product. I purchased six circular polarizers at the same time so this review should do for all of them.

                          I needed a polarizer in 62 mm for a new lens I purchased and tried one by another brand that gave weird color results. Filters are like many other purchase decisions you can spend from a little to a lot. This filter was kind of in the middle of the price range and I have had good experience with this brand in other filters before, so I decided to try this one. The quality is very good and the photo results were just as good too. I am very pleased with this filter and will consider this brand in the future.

                                            This is not a professional filter but for its price is good enough.

                                                    Besides protecting the lens, polarizers give a great effect especially when shooting in day light. The sky turns really blue adding great effects to your photo.

                                                        I use this filter to reduce glare in my photographs. In addition to reducing glare this filter allows me to capture bluer skies in contrast to puffy white clouds. It quickly screws onto the end of my lens when I want to use it for a shot. Simple to use with great results. I would recommend this product.

                                                          I bought two of these filters to make a variable ND filter for more freedom in filmmaking and also for polarizing effect and it works amazing on with. There's no loss of sharpness on the image unlike cheap variable ND filters that cost the same price.
