Hoya B-58PL-GB overview

  • 1Description

Helping to reduce reflections and glare, the 58mm 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.

    Hoya B-58PL-GB reviews

    58mm Linear Polarizer Filter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Polarizer for Canon G series I use this with great results on my Canon G10 for mid-day shots of landscapes and for macro work at the same time. The linear polarizer serves to deepen the landscape colors and to highlight the flowers and insects captured in the macro mode. Using iso 80, add 2 stops, for iso 100, add one stop. I normally do not use iso's above 200 with the Canon G10. The Canon G series + Hoya 58mm linear polarizer works for me when I'm hiking or whenever a larger DLSR isn't practical. B&H had the lowest online pricing ....Recommended on all counts.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fantastic polarizer! I have used this product for about three weeks, it performs great in sunny conditions for increasing contrast and getting rid of annoying reflection in water, glass .etc. Also a very useful way to use it is to stack it on top of nd filters, it itself is two stops.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says No complaints, the demo picture is pretty accurate. This is my only polarizer filter and seems to work just fine for my outdoor shooting needs.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well with Mirrorless Bought this for use with my Fuji XF 18-55. Works well - does what a polarizer is supposed to do - and does not noticeably degrade resolution. I was a little curious about linear polarizers once I learned that circular polarizers are only needed for SLRs (mirrors). Indeed, mirrorless cameras focus & meter just fine with linear polarizers. For the cost, this is a great bargain. The frame is made of aluminum, so be gentle when threading it on to the lens - it can get stuck if you torque it down too strongly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from use with the Voigtlander Nokton 58mm I got it for use with the Voigtlander Nokton 58mm f/1.4 manual focus and it does just fine. Michael
