Product Highlights
  • Uses a High Rate Transparency Film
  • Transmits 25% More Light
  • Equivalent to 1/3 Stop More Light
  • Eliminates/Reduces Reflections
  • Rotating Design
  • High Quality Hoya Glass

The Hoya 67mm HRT Circular Polarizing Filter is unique in its design since it incorporates a High Rate Transmission film that permits more visible light to be passed through the filter while still producing the same degree of polarized light. This filter now permits the equivalent of 1/3 stop more light to be taken in yet it still filters the same amount of polarized light. This can be a huge benefit to users of both digital and HD technology cameras and 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.

This filter also contains UV properties which aid in eliminating the bluish cast on cloudy days or in open shade.

Polarizers should be a part of every photographer's gear. They are useful when you wish to increase the saturation of a blue sky or want to make the clouds stand out more. Moreover, they are handy when reflections are a problem - such as when shooting into glass or on the water. 

All of this goes into increasing contrast for a more effective photo. The effect of the polarization 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 without problems)

Effective with cameras that use beam splitters in the path of the TTL light meter and with AF cameras
Best way to enhance a blue sky, boost cloud detail
Eliminates reflections on glass and water
Can be combined with certain other filters to produce special effects - For example, when used with a red filter, it will simulate a threatening storm

          Needed two 67MM polarizing filters while traveling. This one seems to be of a better quality than my other polarizing filter - less dark and a tad thinner.

              This filter does its job, and does it well. It reduces the reflections and haze and make my outdoor pictures sharper. Colors look richer and more saturating. My landscape photography looks much cleaner and crisp. Its perfect for really bright days when you want a long exposure.

                  I put off getting this for my 70-200 f4. IS and was content with using a 77 mm CP with my 10-22 and 17-55 lenses. I've had several opportunities to use a CP on the long lens & am glad I finally picked one up.

                    I do a lot of outdoor photography with weddings and senior pictures so keeping the sky blue and glasses glaring down is a must. I have not tried it with glasses yet buti have noticed a big difference in the sky. When photographing outside with the polarizing lens, the blue sky stays without overexposure. I love that this product has the decreased f-stop value to it so if I am working indoors, I can get rid of glasses glare and still work under some lower lighting conditions.

                        Although the price of B+W is high, you cant beat the quality. One feel of the filter and you know its going to perform well for life. The photos I have taken so far are great.

                          I don't have a lot of experience with polarizing filters, but I can tell this is definitely higher quality than the last one I used, which was a cheap, bargain model.

                                  Landscapes and occasions where light reflection (glare)is an issue. I am using this on a 100MM 2.8L Cannon lens so better light tranmission is a plus.
