Hoya B-77CIRPL-W overview

  • 1Description

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).

Hoya B-77CIRPL-W reviews

77mm (Moose) Warm Circular Polarizer Glass Filter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 47.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Required Equipment for Landscape Photos This warming polarizer designed by Moose Peterson should be required equipment for all Landscapes Photographers. This is extremely well made polarizer that gives beautiful results. It is also a great value. I have a moose for every size lens I own. A polarizer is the one filter that you cannot do without, and fix it in photoshop. I have been using the moose since 2001 - in Alaska, Canada, California and Arkansas and love the pleasing results. You get the best results if you get the foreground the right shade and the sky takes care of itself. I also use several singh ray filter but they cost 2 to 3 times as much. I have never had a problem with a moose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice I am on my way to spend about a month backpacking in Alaska next week and decided to try this filter. I spent some time in Arkansas recently and this filter is more than I expected. Fit was Awesome and tight. The circular filter is a nice change from my non circular and the warm tones I got in the morning and evening were nothing less than spectacular. Hitting the rapids later in the day I decided to take the camera. The pics I got of the fish were unreal. I'm a fisherman and the filter allowed me to shoot the fish under the water and I had some great shots of some nice stripers up in the shallow water. I'm sold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moose Filters are wonderful! The Moose filter is especially helpful with digital photography because it lowers contrast yet retains rich color. The Moose is a bit pricey but well worth the investment. If you love a polarizer but not the intense blue, this is for you. An additional benefit is the Moose will allow you to shoot during the middle of the day and even the highlights detail in chrome will be retained.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh... Like other reviews, it gets stuck on really easy - this is because the thread ring is too thin and flexible. When you press on it to remove it, you deform the ring and it binds. I've found the way to remove it is to quickly turn the filter portion and the friction there easily gets the thread ring loose enough to turn by hand. Also, minimal polarizing if any at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Moose Warm Circular Polarizer I use polarizers just like any other photography tool, sometimes I remember to use one, sometimes I don't. And like other tools any change to the image regardless of how subtle might be the thing that makes that particular image just right rather than one of the thousands of mundane photographs on your external hard drive. I haven't used this filter tons yet but thus far I like it's warming affect which seems to clarify and enhance all colors where standard polarizers work mostly on blues when I use them. I shot these two photos for you to compare for yourself. Both shot with Nikon 28-70 2.8 at F4, ISO 200 using a D7000 on a terrible smokey cool morning. Both frames handheld Aperature priority. The affect is subtle but notice it in the shadowy areas and the alteration or saturation of color. I think this filter has the potential to be very very good given the right light and weather conditions. I'm anxious for an opportunity to test that theory. Maybe the coast in a few weeks hmmmm

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatly improved my photos I purchased this filter as an experiment to see if I could get my photos to appear as they do through my sunglasses. I am often disappointed when I pull over to set up the tripod and realize that the lighting is not as dramatic as it appears through polarized glasses. And this filter did the trick. I use this with a Canon 17-40mm L series lens, and it produces a vignette until around 20mm, but only has black corners at 17mm. Depending on the degree of the circular polarizer, some photos result with inconsistent light across a relatively evenly lit sky (one darker corner or a dark top of the photo). Other polarizer filters perform similarly. If I were to take away any stars, it'd be for the depth of the filter which causes vignettes at wider angles. I'd recommend buying one size larger and a step up ring to avoid vignetting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colors for outdoor photography I bought this filter for my new Canon 5D Mark II because I do a lot of outdoor portraits. I was drawn to the before/after shots with this filter and figured it might actually help make a difference with my photography. I LOVE the colors that are in my shots with this filter! They're so rich and full. Sure, you can probably fake these colors in post-production with Photoshop, but it sure is nice to have bright, vibrant color photos to start with!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't live without it! This is fantastic! I love to shoot with my wide angle lens and am able to capture such amazing color depth. Not too warm at all (skys still look blue but skin on people is creamy and warm.)It saves me time in post processing. Wonderful for reducing glare and easy to adjust. It takes a little practice when using a lens hood, you have to be careful to grab the outside of the filter and not rub a finger on the lens surface. Be careful not to over tighten as it is difficult to get off if you do. I love it!
