Hoya 58mm Linear Polarizer Glass Filter

You Pay: $29.83

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).

Linear polarizers are used with most video and manual focus photo cameras. They are not recommended for auto-focus SLR cameras.

PLEASE NOTE: All auto-focus SLR and certain manual focus SLR cameras require circular polarizers. Consult your instruction manual.

          Comments about Hoya 58mm Linear Polarizer Glass Filter:

          I have used this product for about three weeks, it performs great in sunny conditions for increasing contrast and getting rid of annoying reflection in water, glass .etc. Also a very useful way to use it is to stack it on top of nd filters, it itself is two stops.

            Polarizer for Canon G series

              Comments about Hoya 58mm Linear Polarizer Glass Filter:

              I use this with great results on my Canon G10 for mid-day shots of landscapes and for macro work at the same time. The linear polarizer serves to deepen the landscape colors and to highlight the flowers and insects captured in the macro mode. Using iso 80, add 2 stops, for iso 100, add one stop. I normally do not use iso's above 200 with the Canon G10. The Canon G series + Hoya 58mm linear polarizer works for me when I'm hiking or whenever a larger DLSR isn't practical. B&H had the lowest online pricing [...].Recommended on all counts.

                      No complaints, the demo picture is pretty accurate. This is my only polarizer filter and seems to work just fine for my outdoor shooting needs.
