for 77mm fit­ting


Typ­i­cal of Hoya’s Pro1 Dig­i­tal range of fil­ters, the cir­cu­lar po­lariser fea­tures black-rimmed glass mounted in a matte-black-fin­ished alu­minium frame. This, in ad­di­tion to multi-coat­ings on the fil­ter glass it­self, of­fers good re­sis­tance to ghost­ing and flare caused by un­wanted re­flec­tions in the fil­ter. Fur­ther at­trac­tions in­clude a low pro­file de­sign and an ul­tra­vi­o­le­tre­sis­tant car­ry­ing case to ex­tend the life of the fil­ter.

The Hoya pro­duces neg­li­gi­ble over­all colour shift and, when ro­tated for max­i­mum ef­fect, gives a typ­i­cal two-stop re­duc­tion in ex­po­sure value. Build qual­ity is good, with easy fit­ment. In ad­di­tion, the op­er­at­ing ring ad­justs eas­ily, de­spite the thin­ness of the low-pro­file de­sign. Over­all, this fil­ter is a very at­trac­tive buy at a rea­son­able price.

This sim­ple and ef­fec­tive round screw-in fil­ter is avail­able in 52mm to 82mm at­tach­ment thread sizes
