Hoya C-ALP67CRPL overview

  • 1Description

The Hoya 67mm alpha 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 and has approximately 96% average light transmission. It is constructed from optical glass and precision milled aluminum frames.

Helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface.
Polarizing filters arrange, and filter, 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.
Circular polarizers are ideal for use with digital cameras and autofocus lenses where a linear polarizer will often disrupt auto exposure and focus features.
Non-coated.
Approximately 96% average light transmission.
3 to 4x filter factor reduces exposure by 1.6 to 2 stops.
Constructed from optical glass and precision milled aluminum frames.
Plastic filter case for storage and transport.

    Hoya C-ALP67CRPL reviews

    67mm alpha Circular Polarizer Filter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from mid-range price, quality product So far, I have used this filter almost everyday since I bought it taking photos in the snow and overcast days (it'sbeen a bit stormy). Cleans easily, too (I live on Cape Cod and took photos on the beach during winter storm Juno). Very excited to use it photographing cars this summer. I confess I have not used higher priced filters, so I am unable to provide a comparrison. Photos are crisp and have good color saturation. Limits glare and decreases contrasts in bright light - especially in sun and snow. 5-stars for price and quality Camera: Nikon D90 VR

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality but a caution Bought this at B&H after looking at several CPL filters there. Seems to be a good quality filter at a reasonable price. But after using it with a wide angle lens I discovered vignetting in the photos. This is due to this filter being relatively thick framed. Had to return it as I wanted a CPL filter for my wide angle lens. Other choices at B&H have thinner frames.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value I am using this filter on an 18-250 Sigma Zoom for my Canon Rebel T3 and not on my Canon 6D. As far as I can tell, on my crop sensor Rebel, the pictures are quite nice with no noticeable loss of quality. The enhancement in the sky and ambient colors is quite nice and this filter seems to perform as well as my more expensive CP filters for my full-frame system, but at a fraction of the cost.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Brute force filter Too great a transmission loss to leave it on the camera at all times. The images are as expected darker but often too dark. The quality seems otherwise OK. Not nearly as adjustable as a Linear polarized - if you are OK with manual focus get that instead. This is for going to the beach to have fun - not for serious work. Get the Hoya HD or similar grade filter if you have the cash or need to use it a lot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as Adverised Hoya has reliable quality and I was not disappointed with this polarizer. Makes blue skies pop and cuts through water glare. I am using this with an adapter on a point and shoot. You may want to brighten up the LCD for an electronic viewfinder as on a bright sunny day it is a little difficult to see the impact from turning the polarizer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Opened a new world of colors for me Easy to use, screws right into the UV filter. Never used one before, and was astounded by the difference in sky and landscape colors. A little bit of experimenting was all it took. Just remember that it will stop down the shutter speed by a couple of stops.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! I use the HOYA 67mm alpha circular polarizer filter on my canon 17-85mm lens. I use it most every time I go outside to shoot photos. I comes in handy when it is too bright outside, and to reduce glare.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from See The Light I use this filter on my Canon telephoto lens for video. It does all the things that you expect a polarizing filter to do, enhancing blue sky, removing polarized light off of water and snow.
