Product Highlights
  • Helps to Eliminate Reflections and Glare
  • Reduces Haze and Blue Cast in Landscapes
  • Greater Color and Tonal Separation
  • Low Profile, Rigid Aluminum Filter Ring
  • IS-HMC Helps Prevent Surface Reflections

The Hoya 77mm EVO Circular Polarizer Filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. This results in a noticeable increase in the saturation of skies and foliage, as well as clearer imagery when photographing in hazy conditions. A circular polarizer differs from a linear polarizer in that it supports full use of a camera's autofocus and auto exposure functions.

Hoya EVO filters feature a super multi-coating (IS-HMC) that helps to greatly reduce surface reflections and increase light transmission. This coating is further overlaid with a clear water and stain-resistant coating that allows for easier cleaning and handling. This filter measures 77mm and is set in a low-profile, rigid aluminum filter ring that keeps the glass perfectly aligned with the lens and sensor or film surfaces.

Reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface.
Arrange and filter directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light allowing for the absorption of much of the light.
Lessens haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
Strongest effect when used at a 90° from the sun.
Circular polarizers are ideal for use with digital cameras and autofocus lenses where a linear polarizer will often disrupt auto exposure and focus features.
IS-HMC multi-coating helps to reduce surface reflections and increase light transmission.
Low-profile, rigid aluminum filter ring provides support and is compatible with wide angle lenses.

            Comments about Hoya 77mm EVO Circular Polarizer Filter:

            This is a really good quality filter, you can really feel it when you turn the polarizer on the lens, smooth and 'weighted' feel. Polarizers give your photos a nice, saturated color look, as well as cutting glare on water & vegetation.
            Really nice for landscapes.

              Comments about Hoya 77mm EVO Circular Polarizer Filter:

              I'm a sports photographer in Hawaii. Surf, tennis, paddling and polo...a polarizer filter is an absolute must. Got this Hoya EVO version to replace a more basic Hoya polarizer filter that was lost. It's a bit thinner and actually a little easier to remove. The built quality and finish are very nice. Cuts glare off the water and court as well as improves color saturation. I've never used a multi-coated polarizer before...but this one seems to allow a bit more light transmission. This took a little getting used to. I really appreciate that it doesn't take smudges very easily at all.

                    Very smooth, water resistant glass is nice, repells water spots, screws on an off nicely, great blues out of the sky, I would say 4 stars because it's a bit expensive
