I never shoot without a filter.

1 August 2014
  • Summary: I always use a protective UV filter. Even an inexpensive one is better than none at all. This is a nice middle of the road filter that gives me the assurance my photographs will be of good quality, and my lens will be protected as well.

what I expected

  • Excerpt: it is as advertised. I need to learn how to use it properly, but it is good quality, was delivered on time, and will suit my needs. I thought the 1.3 (or so) f-stop difference would be more noticable, but this is probably because I don't know how to use it properly yet.
  • Pros: Easily Mounted, Strong Construction

A little extra cost for a lot of extra convenience, great pro-quality stuff

  • Summary: Great for minimising glare on water, or photographing through glass such as into cabinets or into cars. Smart photographers put a Hoyer UV on every lens for physical protection, and keep specialised lenses such as this Circular Polariser in the size equal to their largest lens filter thread, and then purchase step-up rings for their smaller diameter lenses so they can use any of their special filters on all of their lenses.

Hoya Pro 1 circular polarizer is indispensable

kwmar, Ebay
20 December 2013
  • Summary: I have used these filters (the Pro 1, made in Japan) for years, and they have not disappointed. The coating is nice, the polarizing is very even, and they turn relatively smoothly. They're also very thin, which helps to prevent vignetting (darkening in the corners of photos).

The one necessary filter

  • Excerpt: Slim enough not to cause vignetting on my Canon G1X. Multi-coating is well worth the extra cost.

  • Excerpt: Bought it for use on my Fuji X-e1 which already has great color saturation. Polarization only enhances that. This is my first Hoya Pro-1; I'm pleased so far.
  • Pros: Clear Optics, Easily Mounted, Strong Construction

Nice filter, does the job.

  • Excerpt: This filter does nicely what it's supposed to do. While testing it off the camera, I noticed slight color change while rotating it back and forth, from blue to yellow/orange. I haven't noticed much (if any) ill effect on my images yet though. Even so, it wouldn't be anything you can't fix with software. Rotating the filter does feel/sound a little scratchy, and mine has a section where it drags a little. You can also still use a lens cap with this on.
