Hoya XHD2-72CRPL overview

  • 1Description

The Hoya 72mm HD2 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 has an 8-layer multi-coating for very high average light transmission of 99.35%. It is constructed from optical glass and features a thin frame.

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.
Has an 8-layer multi-coating for very high average light transmission of 99.35%.
Constructed from hardened optical glass to increase strength and durability.
Thin frame.
Water- and oil-repellent and scratch- and stain-resistant, making for easy cleaning.

    Hoya XHD2-72CRPL reviews

    72mm HD2 Circular Polarizer Filter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fell apart after 29 days of using it I used it on my 135F2 lens for about 29 days and it was really good. The ring rotated really smooth, it was indeed quite dust and fingerprint resistant and it seemed to produce very neutral tone. Then it suddenly fell apart. B&H was very kind to accept it back for a refund. After finally reading some reviews and found out that I was not alone - others too reported it getting easily broken. My other Hoya CP filter worked fine for me for years so I might just got a bad copy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! Just used this on a shoot, and it worked great. Prior to that, I shot some test footage and found no loss of sharpness. It was a little difficult to get it threaded on my lense properly, since it's so thin, mostly due to my clumbsy fingers.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good! Avid hobby photographer. It does seem to let in more light & works very well. It says it does not smudge, but I still got a finger print on it right away. Not a deal breaker, but the reason for 4 stars, not 5.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from sharp! Unpacked the filter and put it to use. I mainly shoot video with markiii and I was happy to see that my footage did not loose any sharpness, plus looked great now with the filter!
