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

        it is as advertised. I need to learn how to use it properly, but it is good quality, was delivered on time, and will suit my needs. I thought the 1.3 (or so) f-stop difference would be more noticable, but this is probably because I don't know how to use it properly yet.

        Slim enough not to cause vignetting on my Canon G1X. Multi-coating is well worth the extra cost.

                This filter does nicely what it's supposed to do.

                While testing it off the camera, I noticed slight color change while rotating it back and forth, from blue to yellow/orange.
                I haven't noticed much (if any) ill effect on my images yet though. Even so, it wouldn't be anything you can't fix with software.

                Rotating the filter does feel/sound a little scratchy, and mine has a section where it drags a little.

                You can also still use a lens cap with this on.
                I'm still overall very happy with this filter.

                    Comments about Hoya 58mm Circular Polarizing Pro 1 Multi-Coated Glass Filter:

                    I'm shooting a lot of old buildings lately and wanted to get better control of glare.

                    I like the quality of the filter. It rotates smoothly, although its slim design can make it a little hard for biggner fingers.

                    The biggest problem is that I have to remove the lens hood to rotate it. I'll have to look for a threaded lens hood.

                              A CPL is almost a must have item for landscapes and this is one of the best, even better that it's one of the cheapest!

                              The only reason I gave this 4/5 as opposed to a full 5/5 is that I believe the 'Digital' specification of this filter is nothing but a marketing gimmick to command a higher price.

                              A great filter with nice robust threads and smooth operation of the rotating ring, I'd recommend the non digital version of this to save the money, but both are more than adequate.
