Product Description

Moose Warm Polarizer filters, an exclusive collaboration between Hoya and respected wildlife photographer and conservationist B. Moose Peterson of Wildlife Research Photography, are a combination of a polarizer and an 81A warming filter. For many years, polarizers have been used to remove reflections from non-metallic surfaces such as water and glass as well as being used to darken blue skies to increase contrast in scenic photography. When using a camera with a split beam metering system (a metering system that employs a polarized half mirror) which is most of today's auto focus camera bodies, traditional linear polarizers will cause exposure errors due to their light absorption properties. Circular polarizers yield the same optical effect while not causing exposure problems with modern metering systems A side effect of both linear and circular polarizes is they "cool down" or make the over-all color balance of a scene slightly bluish. The addition of the 81A glass corrects the color temperature, bringing the scene back to the original 5500K for daylight film's color balance. The 81A glass creates a much more pleasing and warm color balance to the entire scene while the circular polarizer increases color contrast and reduces the effect of atmospheric haze.

Many people don't understand polarizing light, so they expect more from these filters than they can deliver. Polarizing filters depend upon the angle of the light essentially being at right angles to the axis of the camera lens. When used with a very wide angle lens, the likelihood of that light being at a uniform angle to the axis is about nil. As a result, when you look through the viewfinder, and rotate the filter, you should expect to see non-uniform darkening of the sky, when used with a wide angle lens. However, once the light hits trees, fields etc., it is scattered -- so the inconsistency of polarizing effect is much less pronounced. The issue is solely in sky. You may be able to reduce that effect by shooting at a different angle to the source of light (sun) - but that probably won't include the scene. Even if you fix the aperture and shutter speed, you can't shoot multi-image panoramas with a polarizing filter.

Other points: It will do very little at mid-day at times of year when the sun is dead above you. Or when the sky is overcast (although the Moose will warm the cold light of that day). Or when the sun is at your back.

Having said that, the Hoya Moose filter is the most satisfying I have used in nearly 50 years of photography. The warming effect is simply beautiful. I bought mine (62, 67 and 77mm) before a trip to New Mexico last winter, and whether shooting from the ride up to the Scandia Tramway or Ghost Ranch where Georgia O'Keefe painted, the results were consistently spectacular. I used it on a 17mm F3.5 Tokina ATX-Pro in the Southwest, and again in Israel, and whether shooting old rocks or old temples, the effect was a blow-away.

Still getting used to it, but a great filter for bright day landscapes. Its a little thick and Im getting vignetting at 28-40mm around the corners of my 28-300 lens. Ive found that you need to alter the white balance from Auto to Daylight in order to create the desired effect, but if shooting RAW this is irrelevant.

This Filter is incredible! I almost didn't buy it due to the price, but I'm glad I did. If you are into outdoor photography, you have to buy this filter. Not only does it reduce glare and enhance color, but it produces a cleaner looking picture than my cheaper polarizers.

Back when most people were using film, a warming filter was much more common than they are now.

However, A polarizing filter is still a wise investment for any photographer. A circular polarizer cuts down on glare by being rotated. Digital filters (post-processing) can never really duplicate this effect.

The Moose Peterson filter combines the circular polarizing with a warming effect which makes it appear not so "cold".

I find this really helpful as I tend to convert most of my images into Black & White it helps to make the sky dark and adds some drama.

I liked the 72mm version of this enough that I picked up a 77mm version also.

I love this filter, however it can use an update

The Good: Just the right amount Warmth for skin tone, Polarizing Goodness, Quality feel.

The Bad: It Binds to step up rings and other filters!!! and can really be tricky to get off. It's like you feel you have to muscle it off but the slightest random touch will release it. Plastic packaging is cheap, no foam padding.

I almost bought this filter years ago but didn't because I didn't like the idea of a filter changing the color cast, but my polarizers tend to cool my pictures and this brings them back to life even before post processing. The warming isn't too strong at all, and usually it looks beautiful, not disgustingly red/orange/yellow at all. Now and then it is a bit too warm but it's easy to correct in post processing. I usually tweak warmth a bit then anyway, and most of the time I love how this filter makes my shots look. The polarizing is great and overall it's a solid filter. I actually like how it's not a super slim mount because for one, I use it on my 24-105 so vignetting isn't an issue anyway, and 2) it's easy to grip the threaded outside part to remove it. They can get stuck on the lens sometimes but I haven't had that issue with this one yet. Good product for sure.

Seems to be a good quality filter but the inside ring is so slim (normally a desirable feature for filters) it's hard to get off the camera. I like the slight warming built into the filter. The price was in the middle range for polarizers.

I like it but I find that it's not as warm as I'd like on most occasions. I'm sure it's warm but it just doesn't seem to be that noticeable to me. Good quality product and great polarizer but falls short on the warm end.
