Hoya XHD82CRPL overview

  • 1Description

The Hoya 82mm HD Circular Polarizer Filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. The light from the sun naturally becomes partially polarized due to reflecting off electrons in air molecules, causing the light to scatter into what appears as haze. A polarizing filter arranges, and filters, this directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of this light. This results in a noticeable reduction of glare and reflections from non-metallic surfaces and an increase in the saturation of skies and foliage.

A circular polarizer only differs from a linear polarizer in that it contains a quarter wave plane in addition to the linear polarizing filter. The addition of this quarter wave plane is to circularly polarize the linearly polarized light for the use of auto focus and exposure functions. Due to how the light is broken down and filtered with a linear polarizer, auto focus and exposure accuracy become skewed during use. When the light becomes circularly polarized, it permits the use of these functions.

This filter is constructed from optical glass for clarity as well as color fidelity and features a thin, aluminum-alloy filter ring that can be rotated to adjust the intensity of the polarization effect. To prevent internal ghosting and reflections, eight layers of anti-reflection multi-coatings are applied to the filter's glass. These coatings also offer greater protection to the filter substrate and help it to stay clean for longer than with uncoated filters.

Helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface.
Arranges, and filters, directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of the light.
Clears up haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
Strongest effect when used at a 90° angle from the sun.
Ideal for use with digital cameras and auto focus lenses where a linear polarizer will often disrupt auto exposure and focus features.
2x filter factor reduces exposure by 1 stop.
Constructed from optical glass for clarity and color fidelity.
Eight layers of anti-reflective multi-coating help prevent internal ghosting and reflections.
Thin and durable aluminum-alloy filter ring minimizes the potential for vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses.
Filter ring can be rotated to adjust the intensity of the polarization effect.
Plastic filter case for storage and transport.

    Hoya XHD82CRPL reviews

    82mm HD Circular Polarizer Filter is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Is expensive but is a lot better though. Originally, I had my eyes set on another cheaper CPL filter.� I had some issues with it and BH was out of stock with it.� So, I "upgraded" to the Hoya 82mm HD CPL.� Not happy to spend over $100 on a filter.� However, is definitely a high quality CPL filter here.� The coating makes it every easy to clean.� A big plus.� Two, no grease spilling at the underside unlike some cheaper filters.� The rotating mechanism is pretty much sealed.� Is made of brass I believe.� Very easy to put on and off, even stacking it with another ND filter.� My shots are sharper comparing to the Hoya Pro1 Digital version I was using it in the past.� Don't really notice any color shifts....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Filter on every level I've bought the Hoya 3-pack (UV, ND8, Pol) for my other lenses, but hadn't gotten any filters except the UV for my Canon 16-35mm. I was heading to Arizona and knew I'd want a Polarizer so I bought this. Its exactly what you expect when you buy Hoya. The build is great and the glass is amazing. If I have a complaint, its the same for all my polarizing lenses, which is that its tough to get off the lens, so I just keep a rubber band with me and i'm all set. I would highly recommend this lens. You can pay more, but I can't see how you'd get much more.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased a HOYA 82m Circular HD polarizer This filter performs as well on my new Sigma 24-105m f4 Art lens that I use with my D810 as any up scale filters I have purchased in the past. Super great price, unbelievable results both on overcast and sunny days equally. I haven't experienced any flare while shooting towards the sun and the sun bursts at f22 are dazzling. This filter will be getting lots of use going forward. I'm excited to think of the possibilities this fall! R.Gray

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hoya HD circular polerizer filter. At start I thought something was wrong since if a tipical poletizer adds 2 stops down yet this polerizer is much brighter. So then I checked the sky and everythimg was 100% o.k - the polerizing effect is there -- it was polerizing indeed yet with much less degredation in light tranperancy then a catual polerizer filtersince its higher glass quality. Remarkable what those HOYA guys can do. Simply superb circular polerizing filter. Highly Highly recommendm Allso never was disapointed with Hoya - Always got top results . It is the best filter brand out there to my opinion - That is why I prefer Circular filters then swuare ones - since Hoya only makes circular and no squares.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice features for the price The filter works as expected although I avoid its use with short focal lengths. Construction is solid and it's thin enough so that it does not cause vignetting in any image. The price, especially when on sale, makes it a good value.
    Date published: 2014-11-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No vignetting on superwide This thin mount polarizer works well with my Canon 16-35mm L II on 5DII (full frame) body. There are non vignetting at 16mm. The only drawback is hard to un-mount from the lens, I have to wrap cable ties around to get it off. From now on, cable ties will be added to my photo bag. Highly recommended....great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Quality Thin frame as expected and desired, good quality. I bought it for my Canon 16-35mm and was concerned about the thickness of the frame. If it was too tick then it would cause vignette in the photo. Thickness is just right. Recommend.
