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

Digital Cameras Need Multicoated Filters
Digital camera CCD or CMOS sensors are highly susceptible to reflections - this stray light can ruin your photographs! Don't risk your valuable photos by using bare-glass filters

Digital multi-coated filters greatly reduce the appearance of lens flare and ghosting caused by reflections
Black Almite Frame
Filters feature a black matte aluminum satin finish Almite frame which reduces reflections
Black Rimmed Glass
These filters are equipped with black rimmed glass to reduce the chance of light reflecting off the edge
Low Profile Frame
Ultra thin filter frames to help avoid vignetting on super wide angle lenses are also designed to hold a lens cap
Knurling Edge Frame
These filters are equipped with a straight knurling edge for non-slip, easy attachment and removal
UV Protected Case
Filter cases are UV protected to further lengthen the life of filters
Effect can be seen through the viewfinder and changed by rotating the filter
Polarizing filters do not affect the overall color balance of a shot
The filter factor varies according to how the filter is rotated and its orientation to the sun

      I use the polarizer on various Canon lenses for my 5D. I wanted a thin frame, multicoating and front threads. The frame is sturdy and of high quality, what I would expect from Hoya products which I have used for over 40 years. Smooth turning and knurled rim are nice. No cut off problem with any of my lenses.

      The only difficulty is in mounting the filter firmly enough on the lens so the whole filter assembly doesn't spin when I am using it.

      I have read a lot of reviews before ordering and many guys mentioned it stuck to lens. I didn't pay much attention on this as I already had slim Hoya polarizer on my old lens and from time to time made some efforts to remove it from lens, but never something extraordinary. Moreover highest overall rating here convinced that filter is great. So, I got it, unpacked and attached to lens for first shot. And it had stuck! No. It HAD STUCK!!! I can't remove it by any simple way. Many people recommended to use some rubber band, but I didn't found any in my house at those moment. Fortunately, I have a daughter and she has a lot of hair rubber bands, so finally I was happy to remove it, put back to box and send back to seller. I can't believe filter with name Pro and such price needs to apply any rubber band.
      Moreover, it has light vignetting on my 17-55 lens, and this is not a great problem itself, but...

      Despite all of above, filter is durable and has good image quality.

        I have been using Hoya filters for a while now. My last polarizer was a 67mm Hoya, which I ruined on a cold winter morning shoot trying to remove it from my lens with gloves on. I had that one for 8 years. hope to use this as long if not longer

          Comments about Hoya 77mm Circular Polarizing Pro 1 Digital Multi-Coated Glass Filter:

          This is Hoya's slim version. This means reduced or no vignetting on the wider end of the zoom range. For the most part the camera did quite well with metering properly. There were only a couple of shots that were around 2/3 stop underexposed. That however, is just nit-picking since it was so rare and never ruined a shot.

                Comments about Hoya 77mm Circular Polarizing Pro 1 Digital Multi-Coated Glass Filter:

                While this is not the cheapest CPL on the market, it is the best! Only loses about one stop, instead of the usual two. The filter is thin, so is good for wide angles lenses. The only issue is that the filter can sometimes bind on lenses, so invest in a filter wrench.

                      I would have given this filter a five star review but, I have only had it for a few weeks, so I cant speak to its durability. Overall all it has worked quite well. The filter has not given me any problems with sticking to the lens, and rotation of the filter has not been a problem. I like landscape photography and you can get some real nice contrast between the sky and clouds. I'm very pleased with it and would recommend this product to friends, family, enemies, everybody

                            Comments about Hoya 77mm Circular Polarizing Pro 1 Digital Multi-Coated Glass Filter:

                            I did not experience the issue of the filter getting stuck on a lens. That could be attributed to the fact the lens I was using (Nikon 16-35 VR) has plastic filter threads. Either way, there are filter wrenches for those situations.

                            I did not experience any lens flare or significant vignetting with the lens listed above. The coating is a little bit more difficult to clean than newer 'nano' coated filters, but it just takes a little patience and a microfiber cloth.

                              Filters are a necessary evil, all I want is for them to do their job without degrading the image. These seem well made and good value. Would have preferred a nylon pouch rather than the hard plastic container.

                              I bought this product because I take most of my photos outdoors. I was tired of the clouds and sky being blown out. This polarizer works great! Brings out the blue in the sky and provides more contrast. The only downside to this product is that because of the thin design, I find I must be very careful and gentle while taking it on or off my lens in order to prevent misthreading

                                I was considering different circular polarizers for my application. I am stacking a ND filter and circular polarizer for daytime automotive rig shots. I needed thin filters and this fit the bill. So far, it has been a great polarizer in helping remove reflection on my cars windshield. Great construction, threads, and smooth polarization.

                                  I needed more "pop" in my outdoor photos and this filter is great for that.

                                        I like this much better than other polarizers I have, due to the lower profile this filter has. I used it with an ultra-wide angle lens with no vignetting. It's terrific!

                                          love the product very much this is my second one in this size.
                                          It gives no deformatieon of any kind and is crystal clear.
                                          a great filter
