Heliopan 707740 overview

  • 1Description

The Heliopan 77mm Slim Circular Polarizer SH-PMC Filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. This results in a noticeable increase in the saturation of skies and foliage, as well as clearer imagery when photographing in hazy conditions. A circular polarizer differs from a linear polarizer in that it supports full use of a camera's autofocus and auto exposure functions.

The filter is constructed using high quality Schott glass, which maintains optical clarity and contrast to help render scenes with greater fidelity and resolution. The SH-PMC multi-coating provides a total of 16 coatings, 8 per side, for significant reflection reduction (below 0.2%) as well as dust and moisture repellence for easier cleaning.

This filter features a brass mounting ring that is demarcated with calibration dots to help with finding consistent rotational positioning when TTL viewing is not possible. The ring also features a slim mount design, measuring 5mm-thick, that helps to prevent vignetting when used on wide-angle lenses. It does not feature front threads for mounting additional filters or lens caps.

Reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface.
Arrange and filter directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light allowing for the absorption of much of the light.
Lessens haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
Strongest effect when used at a 90° from the sun.
SH-PMC multi-coating offers both protection to the glass and helps to maintain light transmission and image quality.
Constructed from Schott glass for high optical clarity.
Thin-profile filter ring reduces likelihood of vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses.

    Heliopan 707740 reviews

    77mm Slim Circular Polarizer SH-PMC Filter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made all the difference! Loved this polarizer and plan to buy more for each lens that I have!! I just returned from trip to the Canadian Rockies where brilliant blue skies, 20 hours of light, fresh snow, and beautiful shades of turquoise water abound. Using this polarizer, I was able to capture the beauty (and the detail) of the area in all of these lighting conditions and am thrilled with my results. The only thing that I did not like is that I could not fit the lens cap over this polarizer when on the lens; however that served to remind me to take it off and put it in its case (and take good are of it). This is not an insurmountable issue and does not preclude me from buying others.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Quite What I Expected From the reviews I read, it appeared that this would be the ideal slim multi-coated circular polarized to use with my Canon 24-105L lens on a Canon EOS 5D Mark 2. The optics are excellent, and the rotation is smooth. However, I expected this from any of the high quality filter manufacturers. I didn't, however, expect that there would be vignetting at the widest 24mm focal length when the advertised widest usable lens is 21mm. Granted, it is slight, but I found out the hard way after a long wilderness hike that was important to me. I will be ... exchange for a filter that won't have problems with my application!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top quality filter with similar price The brass construction eliminates the problem of getting the filter stuck on the lens. Ground glass optics account for its higher cost, and provide superlative quality. This is a great match for a Canon L lens. It hurts to shoot an epic landscape using an equally epic lens, just to have the quality suffer from a plate glass filter. A major problem is that without a threded outer ring the camera lens cap will not fit on it. Buying a slip on cap is highly reccomended with this purchase.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heliopan 77mm CP slim I have used Heliopan filter in the past and decided to splurge on an expensive CP multicoated slim version. I wanted the multicoated version because it makes cleaning a breeze. This is very handy if your are working in the field and dust or sea spray is rampant. The CP filter did everything that it is suppose to do like eliminating the glare so you image comes out crisp and clear. The outdoor background is better defined with the bluish contrast but not overly artificial. The craftmanshp of the filter is as expected for this expensive version. The slim version makes the turning more challenging specially if you have stubby fingers. The filter arrives with some oily substance around the rim I suspect to help with screw into your lens but be careful not to get this onto the glass. It will be very difficult to remove even with the multi coating.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still love it I wrecked my first one in an unfortunate accident- and immediately ordered another one. This Pola is more expensive than some others, but the heavy duty brass construction is worth it. It's narrow profile allows me to put it on my 10-22 with no vignetting. Also, if you put it next to the cheaper polas, the lens coating really holds up. No obnoxious greenish flares like with some others.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Filter There is no sense in buying cheap filters, they are made from plate glass and degrade the light that passes through them. This filter is beautifully made from ground glass, is very thin and rotates smoothly. It also has a nicely designed plastic case that I use in my bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Pure Class From the first time I placed this filter on my camera I knew I was dealing with pure class ... It is quality through and through. During a trip to a zoo I watched as water was wonderfully transformed as I turned the polarizer. I got so excited I had to show my daughter!! I know this is not (by any means) the cheapest polarizing filter on the market -- but it sure seems worth the price to me. I would buy another one of these in a New York minute!
