Helping to reduce reflections and glare, the 52mm Linear Polarizer Filter from Hoya filters out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. By filtering this light, a noticeable increase in the saturation of skies and foliage is possible, as well as the ability to produce clearer imagery when photographing in hazy conditions. The filter is constructed from optical glass and is mounted within a durable, lightweight aluminum ring that has a hard-anodized finish to guard against wear.

A linear polarizer differs from a circular polarizer in that it does not support the use of a camera's autofocus or auto exposure functions; it is best suited for use with manual cameras, such as view cameras, that are not dependent on internal mechanisms to determine focus or metering settings.

Helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface.
Polarizing filters arrange, and filter, directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of the light.
Clears up haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
Strongest effect when used at a 90° angle from the sun.
Optical glass construction maintains image clarity.
Aluminum filter ring is both lightweight and durable and features a hard-anodized finish to guard against scratching and wear.

    52mm Linear Polarizer Filter is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Only buy if you know why u need it I bought this filter because of on many places I read its good to have a filter on your lens to keep it protected, and that a polarized filter is great to reduce reflection for landscape photography (which is what I'd like to get into). I really haven't used it enough to recommend it or not but it is definitely dimmer so does affect lens performance if attached, so make sure you know what you're getting before purchasing it. Only annoying this is that its very hard to rotate the filter to change the polarization while composing a shot if you have a lens hood on, so that is a bit annoying as I do not want to remove my lens hood.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid performing polarizer Got this polarizer to use with my Olympus OM-D and associated lenses. It was inexpensive but seems to be great quality; spent an entire day shooting waterfalls with it and had nothing but success. The polarizing effect is strong and easy to work with and the filter doesn't introduce any stray color casts. I'm happy with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does Exactly What I Want The Hoya 52mm polarizer is exactly what I wanted at a fair price. Overall build and performance quality is more than acceptable and balanced. I'm rating the product a top-rating primarily because of the great quality:price ratio. Living in Hawaii, near the sea and moisture haze, a good quality polarizer always helps to get the most out of every shot. It's always great to get something that works that doesn't have to break your pocketbook or get overly hyped.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Enough for Budget work! The Cases for these and Tiffen filters are not intuitive -- as some have said, they should be round and circular screw off. They are odd and square pop open style cases. Yes that makes it easy to open, but you will definitely need a pouch system in order to hold these and the rest of your filters. Otherwise the filter is great and has good light transmission. This works great in my mobile and run & gun package for photos/video work on older lenses. Pro: - Works great - good for run and gun/low budget Con: - Case sucks - threads and construction aren't as good as Tiffen

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Polarizing when on the water. An excellent product at a very reasonable price. I photograph in the hot Texas sun on the ocean and bayous. I don't like to shoot without a filter,especially when it's adjustable. Some reflections can be desirable for effect, but can be rotated out when wanted.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Linear polarizing glass filter The filter is working great. I can use it alone or combine it with a cpl filter to make a ND filter. if I screw up and break it or loose it I know where to get another one. Good price.
