    Hi,

    Sorry if it is against the rule to post the same topic on the various subforums available but Equipment Discussions/Others didnt quite give me answers i need.

    My question is what are the different Hoya Cir-PL types available and how much do they cost?


    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    Light rays which are reflected by any surface become polarised and polarising filters are used to select which light rays enter your camara lens. PL (Linear Polarising) and PL-CIR (Circular Polarising) filters have the same effect, but it is important that you choose the correct version for your camera. They 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 polarising filters do not affect the overall color balance of a shot.


    Many of today's cameras use semi-silvered mirrors or prisms to split the light entering the viewfinder in order to calculate exposure and focusing distance. PL (Linear Polarising) filters can sometimes interact with these items to give unpredictable exposure or focusing. So we recommend that you choose a PL-CIR filter unless you have a manual focus camera which has no beam splitter.

    Hey,

    Thanks for the info.

    Actually, my question is more to what are the types of Circular Polariser filters by Hoya on the market. There seems to be like coated, multicoated, hmc or sth along those lines.

    I was wondering what their prices are like in general starting with the cheapest to most expensive.

    Thanks.
