Hoya EVO 55mm Circular Polarizer CPL Slim Frame IS-HMC Glass Filter XEV-55CRPL
- EVO Polarizing film is housed within clear optical glass to maintain the sharpness and contrast of the lens
- Make white puffy clouds pop in backgrounds of deep blue skies / Remove the surface sheen from water to see what is beneath / Enhance scenic and travel photos
- Special Hoya S-HMC coatings reduce reflections off the surface the glass to improve light transmission
- High quality L39 optical glass
- Low-profile aluminum filter frame is compatible with a wide array of super and ultra wide-angle lenses
These professional quality filters are made in Japan using precision optical glass that is carefully smelted and blended to yield perfect optical results. Hoya has applied the same care and precision to the multi-coating process, using an Improved Super Multi-coating (IS-HMC) formula to greatly reduce or eliminate reflections off the surface of the glass. These coating are over-layed with a clear water & stain resistant coating that is easy to clean. This makes for easier care and handling of the filter in the field. All coating layers are applied in a furnace to bond the coating to the glass.
|Accepts Snap In Lens Cap||Yes|
Filter Ring Depth (Less Threads)
|Filter Factor||2 Stops|
All Hoya EVO filters have very low-profile aluminum filter frames to house the glass and keep it perfectly parallel to the plane of the CCD or COS sensor while providing enough rigidity to hold up to years of use. The low-profile frame also makes the filters compatible with a wide array of super and ultra wide-angle lenses
Color and contrast enhancement
Light rays which are reflected by any surface can become polarized so polarizing filters are used to select which light rays enter your camera lens. CIRCULAR PL filters allow you to remove unwanted reflections from non-metallic surfaces such as water, glass etc. They also enable colors to become more saturated and appear clearer with better contrast. This effect is often used to increase the contrast and saturation in blue skies and white clouds. HOYA's polarizing filters do not affect the overall color balance of a shot.
Digital Cameras Need Multicoated Filters
Digital camera CCD or CMOS sensors are highly susceptible to reflections - this stray light can ruin your photographs! Don't risk your valuable photos by using bare-glass filters.
HOYA - The Clear Advantage
Now try a HOYA Digital Multi-Coated filter and see how the benefit of substantially reduced reflections can improve your image. Reduced internal reflections mean a clearer image with greater contrast.
Using the CIRCULAR PL filter, reflections and glare can be reduced significantly from non-metallic surfaces. A camera angle of 30 degrees from the reflecting surface (glass, water, etc.) is ideal for maximum effect.
