The Hoya Pro 1 Digital Circular Polarizer takes advantage of Hoya's patented optical glass technology to create a hardened glass that is thinner than the normal optical glass. This allows the overall thickness of the filter to be reduced to avoid vignetting when used with ultra-wide angle lenses.

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); Pro 1 Digital filters are ultra thin but have a front thread

                  Comments about Hoya 52mm Circular Polarizing Pro 1Digital Multi-Coated Glass Filter:

                  The Hoya circular polarizer, in my opinion, is the most used filter for landscape photography that is available. It removes reflections which increases color saturation and better clarity and contrast. Bottom line, it makes the sky blue darker and the clouds brighter. I feel that it is a filter that every photography should have. You can see the effect just by rotating the filter.

                      It was easy to put on and remove. Screwed into the Hoya UV filter I had on the camera for quick on/off. I used it with taking pictures through windows and at museum with glass glare/reflection and helped to provide a more clear image. Outside in sunlight it produced nice sharp images. Better with good lighting due to image darkening. Nice thin frame.

                        Comments about Hoya 52mm Circular Polarizing Pro 1Digital Multi-Coated Glass Filter:

                        I purchased this to use on my new Lumix DMC-FZ150. The optics are great and do not detract from image quality. This is a really important point. I researched this product at the Hoya Website before purchase. Hoya pointed out that their filters are designed for easy removal. The filter really is easy to remove! I have used less expensive filters over the years that really require extra effort to remove. No problems at all installing or removing this filter. The FZ150 has a 24mm equivalent wide angle lens. This filter does not vignette wide angle photos on my camera. Good Product!
