    Default filters

    how many types of CPL are there?

    particularly for a Hoya Circular Polariser 67mm, are there few types of variants?
    like type 1 or type 2?

    Just curious

    According http://www.hoyafilter.com/products/hoya/hoya-03.html There are two types of CPL: with or without UV filtering. Check the links right hand side to see the different versions (mostly referring to coating).

    Hmm I may be wrong.. I'm researching up on filters at the moment too. I saw on Hoya's website that they have CPL filters with different coatings... Pro1D(with DMC), Standard, HMC, Ultra and S-HMC.

    Not sure if the shops in SG carry all of them though.

    Does anyone knows is S-HMC coating better or Pro1D with DMC coating? I'm confused. :P

    I know for a fact that the Pro 1D CPL is thinner than the regular one. I am using the Kenko Pro 1D Circular Polarizer right now.
