Greatly improved my photos

  • Excerpt: I purchased this filter as an experiment to see if I could get my photos to appear as they do through my sunglasses. I am often disappointed when I pull over to set up the tripod and realize that the lighting is not as dramatic as it appears through polarized glasses. And this filter did the trick. I use this with a Canon 17-40mm L series lens, and it produces a vignette until around 20mm, but only has black corners at 17mm.
  • Pros: Great Picture Quality, Unique
  • Cons: Depth Of The Filter Ring

Moose Polarizer by Hoya

  • Excerpt: I am a novice photographer. Since photography is only a hobby for me, I am limited on the amount of money I can spend on resources. I needed a polarizer because I find myself shooting a lot of waterfalls and rivers where reflections were killer. This has been a welcomed addition to reduce the glare I was fighting. The relatively affordable price for a great piece of gear is also a plus.

Meh...

  • Excerpt: Like other reviews, it gets stuck on really easy - this is because the thread ring is too thin and flexible. When you press on it to remove it, you deform the ring and it binds. I've found the way to remove it is to quickly turn the filter portion and the friction there easily gets the thread ring loose enough to turn by hand. Also, minimal polarizing if any at all.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Flimsy Construction, Poor Image Quality

Great polarizer

  • Excerpt: The hoya polarizer is very well built, is solid and easy to operate. You will get richer colors without vignetting even when used with a wide angle, I would recommend to buy one especially if you like landscape photography.

Very Nice

  • Excerpt: I am on my way to spend about a month backpacking in Alaska next week and decided to try this filter. I spent some time in Arkansas recently and this filter is more than I expected. Fit was Awesome and tight. The circular filter is a nice change from my non circular and the warm tones I got in the morning and evening were nothing less than spectacular. Hitting the rapids later in the day I decided to take the camera. The pics I got of the fish were unreal.
  • Pros: Clear Optics, Easily Mounted, Firm Mount
