Product Highlights
  • Helps to Eliminate Reflections and Glare
  • Non-Coated
  • Reduces Haze in Landscapes
  • Greater Color and Tonal Saturation
  • High-Transparency Optical Glass

The Hoya 77mm NXT 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. The light from the sun naturally becomes partially polarized due to reflecting off electrons in air molecules, causing the light to scatter into what appears as haze. A polarizing filter arranges, and filters, this directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of this light. This results in a noticeable reduction of glare and reflections from non-metallic surfaces and an increase in the saturation of skies and foliage.

A circular polarizer only differs from a linear polarizer in that it contains a quarter wave plane in addition to the linear polarizing filter. The addition of this quarter wave plane is to circularly polarize the linearly polarized light for the use of auto focus and exposure functions. Due to how the light is broken down and filtered with a linear polarizer, auto focus and exposure accuracy become skewed during use. When the light becomes circularly polarized, it permits the use of these functions.

This filter is non-coated. Hoya NXT filters have over 97% average light transmission, and are constructed from heat-resistant, high-transparency optical glass.

        This is a great polarizer! It's ultra thin and does not vignette. After test shots I found this filter to have zero impact on color balance. It cuts reflections very well and accentuates skies.

          Not much to say but that it does what it's supposed to. Does it well and for a good, mid-range price. Also, it's nicely thin so I avoid vignetting even though it's on top of my UV filter.

            My gear was in my CAMERA BAG, and for some unknown reason the shoulder strap came undone, the my bag hit the ceramic tile floor. I looked at my 24-105mm L lens and the filter was cracked, but the lens to good to go, no damage. The same with my new 28-300mm lens. While I realize this is a polarizing filter and not a protective filter, it did it's job and then some. So yes I would recommend this filter, and I'm buying another one to put on both my lens.

                I'm a professional landscape and nature photographer, it's hard to live and work without a good Circular polarizer. This is a thin mount that fits all my Nikkor 77mm glass. I get no vignetting even on my 16-35mm lens.I've found Hoya to be a consistantly good well constructed product. My short list of filters extends only to Singh-Ray and Schneider.

                        I have been serious about photography, but not professional, since 1970. For a few years, I have used a Canon 7D, with a 28 - 135 lens. When the 5D Mark III was introduced, the bug to upgrade started to grow. A trip with my son and his 5D Mark II really convinced me it was time for me to own a truly professional grade camera. I love it. The last time I owned a truly professional camera was a Mamiya RB67 in the late 1970s. The world has changed since then.

Filter screws on easily to the front of the lens. Then turn the polarizer ring on the outer part of the filter to deepen the blues in your skies - oooh!

                                Purchased for use with glare from reflective surfaces but I find it helps smooth out the overall tones and colors of non-glaring surfaces, too. Tested my lens extensively for any signs of loss of sharpness with this filter in place and can detect none. Seems like quality glass. So, the only time I take this filter off now is when I am in very low light.
