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.

Fits smoothly on my two Nikon 52mm lenses, feels solid, and does its job! Great for sunny day dog pics down by the river!

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.

Just a polarizing filter nothing fancy

I've used Hoya filters for 50 years now and they've never disappointed. However I knocked off 2 stars for packaging. I'm really disappointed with the 'box' they come in. No longer a convenient round box with screw off cap. It's now a square clam shell box with a hanging hole for a wall peg. Difficult to open and inconvenient to carry in a bag. You may need to get a filter wallet. I know that's being picky, but a good case is just as important as the precision glass filter. Bring back the old cases.

This is a excellent polarizer for the right price. The twist action is smooth.

Although it makes a nice polorizing affect it also somewhat affects the picture other than affecting the polorizing lights. It gives the effect you want so we can safely say that it does what it supposed to do.

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
