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

    77mm Circular Polarizing HD (High Density) Digital Glass Filter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 87.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well constructed, high quality The Hoya HD is very well constructed and with high quality. The rim is very thin and does not create extra vignetting (maybe a little for wide angle lens). The rotation of the rim is very smooth. Compare to my previous polarizer, it reduces about 1/2 stop of light loss, which is another plus. And the HD coating is so much easier to clean compare to Hoya Pro1D. In terms of the optical quality, I did not see any difference between this and a B+W MRC belongs to my friend. The only thing I am a little bit worried is the reliability of the filter, since there are some comments about the filter fell apart after some usage. But so far everything is good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! The HD products are a very nice line of filters that have made their way to all my Canon L and Zeiss ZE lenses. The coating on this filter, as on the UV filters, seem almost indestructible. Not going to go test that theory any time soon. Seem to loose almost a stop which is not bad. Very nice build and its slim profile will works nicely with my 17-40. A cautionary note, on the super wide setting you gain density quickly towards the center. Not good. Inherent in most polarizers if I understand right. All said, I am very happy with this filter and may explore another size for my other lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Filter I purchased this filter to use on all of my lenses. I chose the HD version primarily because of the stronger glass that cuts out less light. Hopefully the stronger glass means the filter will last longer and/or take a severe impact to break, which will hopefully save the lens. Obviously this filter is not cheap. You have to decide what your price point is for filters and go from there. I justified it with the fact that it will probably last longer than any lens I own and I use it with all my lenses (through step-up rings). If you think about one filter working for all your lenses and the filter lasting longer than the lenses you own, the cost may be easier to swallow. It performs great. The quality is top-notch. I am glad I purchased it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised I've waited a few months to write this review. I wanted to report real-world use. The thing I like is the combination of polarizing with UV filtering. I live over a mile above sea level, and I MUST have UV filtering, which most polarizers don't provide. I used to get annoying vignetting at my zoom's widest-angle setting because of having to stack filters. No more vignetting with this filter. It's a good filter, and I've had no problems with UV. Some folks complain that this filter is hard to remove. As someone who once lost a $200 polarizer over the edge of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, I WANT a filter that stays on!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! Already using the Hoya HD filter series on all my lenses. Theses filters are beautifully machined and are of top quality. The coatings are optically flawless and very very durable. They require little in the way of cleaning, even after being in the tropics. Dust pretty much blows off them. Smudges? When they do appear, wipe away with little effort. Back to the polarizer. I have not had enough time yet with this little gem. It looks as if the results are going to be very nice once I have had some decent sunlight and subject matter to further test it on. Very Happy with this filter thus far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong, high quality filter This is my second set of Hoya's 'HD' filters (I changed from 72mm to 77mm thread). I have abused the 72mm HD Pol filter so badly that the metal ring has dents in it; it still rotates perfectly, and the glass is unmarred. This includes dropping the filter directly on concrete. In addition to toughness, the image quality has been exceptional, and flare/reflections minimal even shooting with the sun in the frame. The filters are low profile as well, avoiding vignetting on wide angle lenses, in my personaly experience: the 17-40mm f4L USM vignettes at 17 with a regular filter, and does not with the HD filter.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from High Quality, Low Durability I've owned two of these filters and the optical quality is superb, 5 Stars. The downside of the filter, however, is serious and outweighs the quality in my opinion. I've purchased two of these filters because on the first one the two rings broke apart when I was shooting in Switzerland. The glass got scratched and the filter was ruined. I bought a second one because of the high glass quality and a year later the same thing happened and it was out of warranty (only 1 year). Added to this durability problem is the maddening issue of threading the filter onto a lens or UV filter. If you thread it to a snug fit, it's almost impossible to remove for some reason. It seems like the threads seize up with the receiving threads. This doesn't happen every time, but it is a serious problem. You're better off avoiding this filter and going with the B+W line (XS-Pro level).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Polarizer Takes Blues Out of Vignetting I have had some difficulty using an existing circular polarizer. Intermittantly I would get corner vignetting. I purchased this product becuase of its thin and yet heavy construction and what I believed to be an appropriate price range for a polarizer. I have not been disappointed! On the contrary, this filter is durable and has solved my vignetting problem. It is always a joy to solve photographic problems with a reliable piece of equipment and Hoya has provided it with this filter.
