The Hoya Pro 1 Digital Circular Polarizer takes advantage of Hoya's patented optical glass technology to create a hardened glass that is thinner than the normal optical glass. This allows the overall thickness of the filter to be reduced to avoid vignetting when used with ultra-wide angle lenses.

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.

Note: Circular polarizers are specifically designed for use with auto-focus SLR cameras (They will also work on manual systems and video cameras without problems); Pro 1 Digital filters are ultra thin but have a front thread

Digital Cameras Need Multicoated Filters
Digital camera CCD or CMOS sensors are highly susceptible to reflections - this stray light can ruin your photographs! Don't risk your valuable photos by using bare-glass filters
Digital Multi-Coated
Digital multi-coated filters greatly reduce the appearance of lens flare and ghosting caused by reflections
Black Almite Frame
Filters feature a black matte aluminum satin finish Almite frame which reduces reflections
Black Rimmed Glass
These filters are equipped with black rimmed glass to reduce the chance of light reflecting off the edge
Low Profile Frame
Ultra thin filter frames to help avoid vignetting on super wide angle lenses are also designed to hold a lens cap
Knurling Edge Frame
These filters are equipped with a straight knurling edge for non-slip, easy attachment and removal
UV Protected Case
Filter cases are UV protected to further lengthen the life of filters
Effect can be seen through the viewfinder and changed by rotating the filter
Polarizing filters do not affect the overall color balance of a shot
The filter factor varies according to how the filter is rotated and its orientation to the sun

    58mm Circular Polarizing Pro 1Digital Multi-Coated Glass Filter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bang for buck A CPL is almost a must have item for landscapes and this is one of the best, even better that it's one of the cheapest! The only reason I gave this 4/5 as opposed to a full 5/5 is that I believe the 'Digital' specification of this filter is nothing but a marketing gimmick to command a higher price. A great filter with nice robust threads and smooth operation of the rotating ring, I'd recommend the non digital version of this to save the money, but both are more than adequate.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Thin is good.... For models, but not for filter rings.Purchased for a trip to the mountains to photogragh streams and waterfalls at close range. It is used on a 50mm f/1.8g. Water splashes and fingerprints wipe off with a microfiber cloth.Easy to rotate yet well dampend so it does not move on its own. Polarizing effect is good and comparable to my Nikon 77mm CPL 2.I have a 62mm HD and the rings on the HD are thicker and easyer to grip. The male thread ring on this is the thickness if a fingernail .5 mm. I carry a 14inch cable tie in case I can't remove it by hand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product that brings detail back to mid-day photos There are two filters that every photographer should have in their bag: a neutral density 0.9 filter and a circular polarizer. I had a small CPL filter for my camcorder but there was no way it would fit my DSLRs. This filter is not the cheapest you can get, but oh man, do you feel the quality your currency paid for! This filter threads on well and the polarizer part resists turning so it's harder to bump it and end up needing to align it again. The performance is great. It does remove a stop or two of light (all polarizers do) but with the correct alignment almost ALL of the harsh white glare from the mid-day sun is eliminated from trees, cars, railings, and even people, making details visible that would normally be completely blown out. I am very happy with this filter.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice filter, does the job. This filter does nicely what it's supposed to do. While testing it off the camera, I noticed slight color change while rotating it back and forth, from blue to yellow/orange. I haven't noticed much (if any) ill effect on my images yet though. Even so, it wouldn't be anything you can't fix with software. Rotating the filter does feel/sound a little scratchy, and mine has a section where it drags a little. You can also still use a lens cap with this on. I'm still overall very happy with this filter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hoya 58mm Circular Polarizing Pro 1 I own over a dozen Hoya Pro 1 Digital Polarizers and Clear Protectors. I used Tiffen in the past many years but there is a HUGE difference in the quality with Hoya Pro 1 Digital. Go Hoya and you will Never Go Back!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy, useful polarizer Great for outdoor shooting to tame the sky, remove reflections from windows, and to take the glare off wet surfaces after the rain. Good construction. Smooth operation.
