Hoya Pro1 Digital £60, $90
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
