The Hoya 46mm NXT 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 non-coated. Hoya NXT filters have over 97% average light transmission, and are constructed from heat-resistant, high-transparency optical glass.

Clears up haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
Non-coated.
Strongest effect when used at a 90° angle from the sun.
Circular polarizers are ideal for use with digital cameras and autofocus lenses where a linear polarizer will often disrupt auto exposure and focus features.
Over 97% average light transmission.

    46mm NXT Circular Polarizer Filter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slim, lightweight & functional Great filter to complement my micro 4/3rds lens. Worth the money especially if you do video or landscape photography! Very thin. Cuts down reflections on glass, across water & within clouds. Accounts for about 1 1/2 stop of light transmission. On very bright days I would like to combine this with a 3-stop ND to keep video shutter speeds down. Only downside is it can gather dust easily without mulit-coatings. Excellent price point at B&H and i respect Hoya quality

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works As Intended/Great Value Paired with the Olympus 17mm 1.8, this product does a great job. Hoya is a trusted name in filters and this circular polarizer is no exception. The item threads on the lens just fine and is no trouble to unscrew. Of course the color saturation improves and is ideal for landscapes including the sky and clouds. At under $ this purchase was a must. I am perfectly pleased with this item.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Pola Bought this to go on the Olympus M.Zukio lens. Works great to manipulate reflections and glare. has an arrow on the adjustable ring which makes getting the Pola in the exact position you need, easy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Filter This is my first CPL, so far so good. Seems to be of high quality, is free of defects, and fits nicely on my Panny 20MM 1.7. Excited to bring it out on my next day of sunny shooting!
