- Hoya Circular Polarizer Filter
- Plastic Case
- 1 Year Limited Warranty
The Hoya Circular Polarizer Filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. The light from the sun naturally becomes partially polarized due to reflecting off electrons in air molecules, causing the light to scatter into what appears as haze.
A polarizing filter arranges, and filters, this directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of this light. This results in a noticeable reduction of glare and reflections from non-metallic surfaces and an increase in the saturation of skies and foliage.
This filter is non-coated and has approximately 93% average light transmission. It is constructed from optical glass and precision-milled aluminum-alloy frames.
