Hoya 77mm NXT Circular Polarizer Filter
Key Features
  • Helps to Eliminate Reflections and Glare
  • Non-Coated
  • Reduces Haze in Landscapes
  • Greater Color and Tonal Saturation
The Hoya 77mm 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.

Hoya NXT Overview

The Hoya 77mm 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.

There is a possibility that this filter will vignette on the 17-40mmf/4 L lens. As an alternative, you may want to consider this item, B&H# HOCPSMC77, http://bhpho.to/1f9telF.

Asked by: Shabbir
The quality of the glass and the coatings of this filter are superior to many lower cost filters, if you have an expensive lens and or good optical quality, yes it is worth it.

question

Will i be able to use this filter with my Canon EF 16-35mm F/4L IS USM ultra wide angle lens and will my auto focus still work with it? Sorry but I'm a true amateur. Thanks
Asked by: Anonymous
If your lens takes a 77m yes you can use this filter and you should not get any issue with the AF using a CPL with a wide angle lens. I have read that you get autofocus and underexpose issues when you use a linear polariser. However I haven't experienced this since i don't use linear polarisers.

question

What is the advantage or differencebetween a non-coated polarizer vs a multi coated?
Asked by: Steven
The non coated polarizer will scratch much more easily. Since the price differential is nominal when you consider the polarizer cost, it is worth it. Especially, if you plan on keeping the camera and the lens, it will extend the useful life.
