Hoya Moose Overview

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. Filter factor is between 2.3 and 2.8 (approx. +1.3 stops).

This unique filter is the result of a collaboration between Hoya and respected wildlife photographer, B. Moose Peterson. It combines the advantages of a polarizer with the warming effect of an 81A filter.

Circular polarizers are specifically designed for use with auto-focus SLR cameras (They will also work on manual systems without problems).

Colors pop but you do lose 1-1/2 stops

I've had the chance to use it on the fall colors and lake reflections. Does a great job on popping the colors, however, you do lose 1-1/2 stops of light

Not just a polarizer

this is a combined polarizer and warming filter. It makes your skies a bit bluer and everything a little warmer. Love it for my landscapes.

Finally got to use this filter on our trip to Hawaii, poor weather at home! With bright sunlight, dramatic clouds and plenty of glare I used the filter a lot. The warming effect helped keep the tones off the blue side. great quality and price.

Warm Indeed!

Helps to create an image not quite as stark (for want of a better word) as results from a standard polarizer.

Well worth the money!

As with other Hoya filters I own, this one is of very high quality. Spectacular results. If you like punching up colors, this is the filter for you.

As usual, a top notch product from B&H.

By the picture of this filter shown here it looks thicker than, for example, a Sony 72mm filter. Is it? I am concerned about vignetting when shooting wide angle. Is it considered a THIN filter? Why is it called a MOOSE? Hopefully because it is not big and Moosie!!
Asked by: Peter
Peter, I can't compare it to a Sony filter, but it definitely is not a slim-line filter. It is called a Moose filter after the wildlife photographer Moose Peterson.
