Hoya 67mm alpha Circular Polarizer Filter
Key Features
  • Circular Polarizer Filter
  • 3 to 4x Filter Factor, +1.6 to 2 Stops
  • Helps to Eliminate Reflections and Glare
  • Reduces Haze in Landscapes
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.

Hoya alpha Overview

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.

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.

question

Is this filter compatible with Canon SX530?
Asked by: Anonymous
While the Canon PowerShot SX530 HS Digital Camera does not have filter threads built into the camera lens, if you purchase the Canon Filter Adapter FA-DC67A B&H # CAFADC67A, you would then be able to attach the Hoya 67mm alpha MC UV Filter listed above for use on your Canon PowerShot SX530 HS Digital Camera.

question

What's the difference between this uv alpha MC filter and the 52 mm UV haze NXT filter...both by Hoya?
Asked by: Chester
While mostly similar, there are a few differences between the Alpha and NXT filters. Both filters have three layers of multi-coating on each side of the filter, but the coatings on the Alpha filter allows 95% light transmission, while the multi-coating on the NXT filters allow 97.5% light transmission. The other difference is the Alpha filters frames have a standard thickness of 5mm, while the NXT filter are thin/slim filters designed for use on ultra wide-angle lenses. The NXT filters would be a slightly higher class of filters, while the Alpha filters would be a high-quality economical option.

What mm fits 18-150 mm lens?

What mm fits 18-150 mm lens?
Asked by: Kaitlyn
Unfortunately, you do not confirm which 18-150mm lens you own or are referring to in your inquiry. If you are referring to the Canon EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM Lens, as the lens has 55mm filter threads on the front of the lens, the Hoya 49mm alpha MC UV Filter, B&H # HOUVA49, would not be the correct option for your lens. The Hoya 55mm alpha MC UV Filter, B&H # HOUVA55, would instead be the correct filter for use with the Canon EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM Lens. If the Canon EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM Lens is not the lens you own, then you would have to e-mail [email protected] with the full brand name/model of your lens so we can find the filter thread size used by your lens and recommend the correct filter for your usage needs.

question

Would this fit on my Canon AE-1 50mm Lens?
Asked by: Cynthia G.
It will depend on the version of 50mm lens you own as to if the above would work for your needs (Canon had approximately 14 50mm FD mount lenses, ranging with apertures from f/1.4, f/1.8, and f/3.5 macro). However, the two filter thread sizes used by the above lenses were either 52mm or 55mm, so it is a good chance the above would work for your needs. If you still have your lens cap, I would recommend looking on the inside of the cap (or on the lens itself) to see if you see the filter thread size (the diameter symbol is usually indicated by a circle with a line through it, i.e., ? ). If you see something like ?52 on the lens or inside of the lens cap, that would indicate the filter thread size of your lens.

question

I'm photographing paintings and need a lens that will help reduce specular highlights. Will this lens help for that type of correction and if so, will it fit a Canon EFS 18-55mm lens? Recommendations appreciated.Thanks.
Asked by: Anonymous
A circular polarizer will be an excellent tool to cut glare and other reflections, however you will need a circular polarizer with a thread of 58mm instead: http://bhpho.to/19MYXGe

Yes, this filter, like any other 58mm will fit the LAH-DC58E adapter and attach to your Canon Powershot S5 IS Digital Camera.

question

Is this size the one I need for 50mm 1.8 canon?
Asked by: Miguel M.
It would depend on the version of the Canon lens you own. If you own the older Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II lens, which uses 52mm filters, then the Hoya 49mm alpha MC UV Filter would not fit. If you own the more recent Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM lens, which uses 49mm filters, then yes, the Hoya 49mm alpha MC UV Filter would work for your needs.
