    Comments about Hoya 77mm Linear Polarizer Glass Filter:

    Used this last evening in the mountains to remove the glare from a small lake that had great relections of the trees at sunset. It maintained the colors of the sunset and cut the reflective shine to reveal the surface of the water. I was pleased with the results.

      Comments about Hoya 77mm Linear Polarizer Glass Filter:

      As other Hoya products, this one doesn't disappoint. Filter and coating quality is excellent.

      DSLR users please note that this is a LINEAR polarizer. It won't work well with a standard digital camera! For DSLR you need a circular polarizer. I needed it for a special application.

          Seems to work well. Needed a polarized filter for my 77mm lens and it does the job well.

              Comments about Hoya 77mm Linear Polarizer Glass Filter:

              I have used the polarizing filter around water and in wide angle landscape shots. This filter definitely cuts out most water reflections and brightens up the sky. I am no professional, but it seems to be of good quality for the price. Only negative thing I can think of is that it can be a little hard to remove because it is designed to rotate even when completely screwed into a lens. I learned quickly though that you should not squeeze the filter very hard when unscrewing it. Squeezing it only compounds the problem. Great filter / Great price!

              This filter offers a nice transition for a polarizer. It is of excellent quality and well made. The action of the rotation is smooth, but not loose.
