The HOYA 58mm HD polarising filter combines three advanced technologies to ensure perfect results and wide possibilities of application for all modern photographers. The highly transparent and durable filter absorbs UV rays and allows a 25% better light permeability than standard polarizing filters (this one is not as dark). Eight layers of anti-reflective coating provide great resistance to water, grease, scratches, and dirt adhesion. The HD rim of the HOYA filter is extremely thin and is suitable even for wide-angle lenses. The rim has a front thread.
Polarising filters are most the commonly used filters in both digital and analogue photography. They are suitable for removing reflections on non-metallic surfaces (glass panes, oily skin, etc.). Their use is not limited to highlights - they can also be used to darken the sky, emphasize clouds, and liven up colours. Polarising filters can be used in combination with other filters.
This filter is made of a material that transmits polarising light only in a certain direction, thus reducing the amount of light that passes through the filter. The filter uses a circular method of filtration so it does not confuse exposure metering and the autofocus sensor. It is therefore particularly suitable for autofocus and digital cameras. To achieve maximum effect of the filter, it is necessary to rotate the rim and watch the resulting effect in the viewfinder or on the camera display.
