Heliopan 707761 Overview

  • 1Description

The 77mm High-Transmission Circular Polarizing Multi-Coated Filter from Heliopan can turn an average shot into a "keeper". With its renowned Schott glass composition and resilient black brass filter ring, this filter offers you features that make it well-worth the investment for both traditional film and digital shooters.

Heliopan has incorporated High-Transmission technology into this filter. It will pass 99.8% of the light passing through it with only a 1-stop loss of light and with no color change to the image. In addition, their highly regarded SH-PMC 16-layer multi-coating (8-layers on each side) gives the filter an edge when it comes to durability, flare reduction as well as dust and moisture-resistance. Anyone who wants to shoot landscapes will find this filter is excellent when it comes to enhancing the blue of the sky as well as making the clouds more distinct. On water, you'll use it to eliminate reflections. And, again, with its substantial multi-coated protection, you'll find it easier to clean when spray or dirt land on the glass surface.

This filter is also unique in design since its black brass filter ring is indexed so that if you're not using a traditional SLR, you'll be able to set the rotating ring to a precise setting each time you wish to achieve the same degree of polarization. The brass composition of the filter ring is a benefit since it is less prone to jamming when placing or removing it.

Heliopan has been a leader in the filter industry since 1949. They are known for their high quality and production standards. Heliopan offers most of their filters with either their standard hard coating or with their industry leading SH-PMC 16-layer multi-coating that transmits over 98.8% of the light striking it on the image plane for the lowest flare and greatest color saturation.

Note: Circular polarizers are specifically designed for use with auto-focus SLR cameras (They will also work on manual systems without problems)

Same polarizing effect as regular polarizing filters that lose more light - High-Transmission design has a filter factor or 2.0 (loses only 1-stop of light) as compared to 2.5 of a traditional polarizers
The effect of the filter is greatest at a 90° angle to the sun
Reflections are eliminated resulting in greater color saturation
8-coatings on each side produce less flare and maximize reflection reduction
Color neutral regardless of rotation
Top layer on each side of filter repels dust and moisture - easier to clean than other filters
Brass filter ring enhances the life of the filter
Use with traditional film or digital photography

    Heliopan 707761 Reviews

    77mm High-Transmission Circular Polarizing Multi-Coated Filter is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality CPF Used with Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED Autofocus Lens. On this top-of-the-line lens the more costly Heliopan polarization filter performs much better than the lower end polarization filters. The picture quality is outstanding. The brass filter rings have a smooth motion and does not get jerky or stuck as do the aluminum rings do some times.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Heliopan High-Transmission Pol Heliopan High-Transmission Circular Polarizer lets in more light. This makes Autofocus work faster and better. And it lets me see the subject better. And you still get beautifully blue skies, etc.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Filter! I own several DSLR lenses, and also some newly acquired Medium Format Lenses that take 77mm filters. I also have many CPL filters in my collection from all of the major brands. Prices on all of these range from moderate, to high end. This one is an excellent filter, and should be considering the price. I purchased this one for two reasons. Higher Light transmission, and also the numbered markings on the front ring so that I could record, and return to specific setting when needed, or as needed. Glass quality, and that sort of thing are certainly a plus. If you need these kind of features this may be a consideration for you. Final note here. If you are even a casual filter user, BUY A FILTER WRENCH! (B&H has them and they are cheap!) They can save the day for you. I can't even tell you how many times I have helped people in the field with a stuck filter. Always amazes me that people spend a great deal of money on filters and do not own a wrench. B&H selection, service and price is always great as usual.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from does the job primarily used for landscape pictures - polarizers work the same - this one does the job

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality but expensive I used on Canon 100-400 for photographing waterfowl, wading birdswhere reflections may be an issue. On a telephoto the 1-stop filter is an asset.
