Pros and cons

According to our lensfilter expert
  • With a polarization filter, you can create strong contrasts and make colors more intense.
  • The filter lifts up reflections, which creates more depth in your photos.
  • A polarization filter leads to a loss of light, lowering the shutter speed.

Description

With the Hoya PL-CIR SLIM polarization filter, you increase the contrast and the color intensity of your photos. The filter also counters glare and reflections. Using this filter, you can photograph the surface of the water and also experience depth. You can't do that without a polarization filter, because the water's reflection blocks your view. By turning the front ring, you can determine the desired effect. Because the Hoya PL-CIR SLIM has a slim rim, you can also use it on wide-angle lenses without the filter's rim ending up in the image.

    I wanted a polarizing filter for my vacation and I have not regretted it for a moment. Amazing what it does to the air and water. We were in Norway and because the filter removes glare, the photos show how extremely clear the water is there. I think I will also buy a filter for my other lenses.

    with regard to ease of use, maybe do some searching.

    • thin
    • excellent image quality
    • awkward to use
    • packaging

    This concerns my first experiences with a polarizing filter.
    A good filter for a good price. Consists of a double ring of which the thinnest inner ring (+/- 1.5 mm!) is provided with the screw thread. The outer ring can rotate freely relative to the inner ring. The inner ring is so thin that if you tighten the filter even a little too tightly, it is very difficult to get it off again due to too little grip (piece of chamois). It is a pity that the filter is packed in a much too large and thick plastic box, which is not convenient to use on the road due to its size when changing / removing the filter.

    • Price

    Photographing fish through the surface of the water has never been easier. Photograph sharks at your own risk! Those critters sometimes dare to jump up.

    For the rest, this filter makes the sky bluer and the sea appears slightly deeper. Less post-processing required on your photos and more time to enjoy the sunset and drink cocktails.

    In short, your best friend on vacation (after the bartender, of course).

    Great filter, does what it's supposed to do
    • Returns the expected result; does what it's supposed to do
    • Easy to use

    When you hear what a polarizing filter would do, you don't believe it's possible at first. But this filter has definitely proven itself. Easy to use, just turn the filter and you will see immediate results.
