Hoya XHD58CRPL overview

  • 1Description

The Hoya Circular Polarizing HD (High Density) Digital Glass Filter represents the next generation of dynamic Hoya filters.

This filter, with its hardened glass, has 4x the tensile strength of traditional filters of similar fabrication. This filter is also of great use in today's digital market where sensors are more sensitive to reflected light. Hoya incorporates special coatings that reduce these internal reflections and, thereby, promote a clearer, brighter and sharper image.

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).

25% higher light transmission than standard polarizing film used in current photographic filters
Filter promotes the acquisition of more light for your image
Increases sharpness
This filter eliminates ultraviolet rays to remove haze from outdoor shots as well as polarizing the light to remove reflections, and increase color saturation, without affecting the overall color balance

    Hoya XHD58CRPL reviews

    58mm Circular Polarizing HD (High Density) Digital Glass Filter is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value This is the first filter I've bought. I enjoy shooting landscapes, and was looking for something to improve the results I get with my Canon PowerShot S5. After much research and reading user reviews, I settled on the Hoya HD CIPL for the reason that it offered the best balance between price and performance.It's been 2 weeks since I started using the Hoya, and I'm happy with it. The quality is what you would expect from Hoya, and from Japanese-made photo gear in general: precise, CNC-milled aluminum frame, thick glass, very solid. For something so small, the Hoya is surprisingly heavy. I had thought I might need to buy a filter wallet or case for storing it, but that turned out to be not the case: the filter comes with a hard, clear plastic screw-top case, a nice extra.As a polarizing filter, the Hoya performs exactly as advertised. Its affect on contrast, saturation and glare is very noticeable, and there is no vignetting or loss of sharpness. The lens, when it does get dirty which is not often is easy to clean with any microfiber cloth. (From what I understand, this is an advantage of multi-coated filters) I did find turning the filter lens initially a bit tricky because of its thin profile, however that's gotten easier with time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As Advertised This seems to be very good optical quality, though I must emphasize I am not an expert. In a quick test of it's functionality, it removed a significant amount of glare without the vignetting I was warned to be aware of in thicker polarizing filters. It's the first item I've purchased from the owners of Pentax, other than my camera itself, that was actually worth the price I paid.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great for travel!! Worth the money I've got this filter in two different sizes and it was well worth the money. I used this filter on a cruise we took recently. It was awesome! Made the sky and the water beautiful brilliant blue! The shots I took in Cozumel, Mexico were excellent! I've got this filter in two different sizes and it was well worth the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nifty At first I thought this filter wasnt going to be much of a difference in my shooting but once I got out and more into the sun's playground, the differentiation of colors in my shots starts to become more evident.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Quality Circular Polarizer I use this circular polarizer on my Canon 28 mm f/1.8 USM and Canon 50 mm f/1.4 USM. I highly recommend this product for those who want a high quality circular polarizer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great filter Works as it says. These are great filters. This was my first in the polarizer filters in this grade and I was extremely satisfied with its performance on my Canon 50mm f/1.4 lens. I have since bought one for my 18-55mm lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product A little tricky to rotate at first but once you get used to the feel it works great. My 58mm lens cap fit with the filter on and that's a real plus.
