Hoya XD77CRPL Overview

  • 1Description

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

    Hoya XD77CRPL Reviews

    77mm Circular Polarizing Pro 1Digital Multi-Coated Glass Filter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 146.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value I was looking for duplicate 77mm circular polarizers for my 17-50 OS and 50-150 OS lenses without reaching deep into my pockets. I was shooting a beach wedding, and I knew shooting in midday was going to be challenging enough, bet adding the glare from the sand and the water was an added bonus. And if the weather went south, then I'd have some front element protection. Also, being on the beach - a public beach - sand would be kicked up in the air, so duplicate filters would keep me from changing filters. Rain or shine I would be prepared. As an added bonus, the filters can be stacked on my 50-150 for a variable ND filter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny I was certain that I would go for a B&W Polarizer but, Hoya can really make high quality stuff. It's so thin, but that creates a problem removing it from the lens. I had a really hard time getting it off my Nikon 70-200/2.8 VR lens which has a kind of rubber surface around the thread. So now i have some grease on the threads before mounting the filter. Now days I almost always use this filter, it's amazing what it does having the opportunity to adjust the lights polarization. =)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just exactly what I wanted I use the polarizer on various Canon lenses for my 5D. I wanted a thin frame, multicoating and front threads. The frame is sturdy and of high quality, what I would expect from Hoya products which I have used for over 40 years. Smooth turning and knurled rim are nice. No cut off problem with any of my lenses. The only difficulty is in mounting the filter firmly enough on the lens so the whole filter assembly doesn't spin when I am using it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good filter, great price Couldn't pass up the great sale so I picked this filter up a few weeks ago. It's great to have a single polarizer that covers all my lenses now. I've only used it a few times, but it get's the job done and works well enough for my purposes. It does require a little TLC screwing and unscrewing it to the lens to make sure it's not tight, and keeping the inner ring loose while rotating the outer ring too. I have a smaller Hoya polarizer that's non low profile and it's a bit easier to use, especially with liner gloves on.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Underrated Filter This filter does what it's supposed to do. Build quality is great. I have not have had one problem with Hoya's Digital Pro 1 filters at all. The coatings are very durable. BTW, if you don't know, the coatings are the same ones on the Pentax and Tokina lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must-Have Accessory When you've got reflections on glass, water or any shiny subject fooling your exposure meter, robbing you of color saturation and ruining your shot, a polarizing filter is the solution. No amount of Photoshopping can replace getting the perfect file in the first place. This filter screwed on and off very easily, is super thin and did the job.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is quite a nice filter For a few years I have used Hoya CPL filters for landscape photography in Alaska. Hoya filters, just like B+W, are well made. I have been using this and other Hoya CPL filters over a Tokina 12-24mm f/4 super-wide angle lens, and haven't noticed any image softness at the edges. Since this lens is quite sharp all across, I can tell that the Hoya CPL does not interfere with this lens' sharpness. I plan to use the same CPL filters over a Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 (Canon mount) ...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I was kind of hesitant about this brand but since I use it before I gave it a try, the other (Better) reviews were on other brand about three times this price, I bought this one and all I can say it is a wonderful polarizer,I don't have problems with screwing it or un-screwing it, like some other people said. If you know what you are doing then you won't have any problems. It won't take away quality from the picture at all, good quality. The only thing to be aware of ( not a problem for me) it is a dark polarizer, I still didn't check but there is at least two stops, very helpful sometimes actually.Some other brands are not this dark BUT, less quality. Very happy with it.

    Is this compatible with the Canon EOS Rebel T3?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    This filter is compatible with any digital SLR body, however, it is dependent on the size of the filter threads of the lens you are using. This filter fits lenses with a filter thread of 77mm.

    The specifications for this filter list the thickness as 3mm.Is the filter glass 3mm thick, or is the overall filter height 3mm?When other filters list the thickness, is that the thickness of the glass filter or the overall height of the filter?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    That is the thickness of the filter glass. The mounting ring is about 5.4 mm.

    How potent is the polarizing effect? (I've had weak polarizers with little effect, and a good one with striking effects. Which is this one please?
    Asked by: Franci V.
    It has worked well for me especially in strong sunlight.

    Is it compatible with Canon 24-70 F/2.8L USM? I wonder will it causes any shadows at the edge of 24mm focal length?
    Asked by: Tung F.
    Provided it is the only filter on your lens, there will be no problem.
