also to confirm w/ what I've got working or not w/ the lens hood:
- the Hoya 77mm "Both Sides Coated" UV WORKS
- the Hoya 77mm "Pro1 Digital Protector" (clear) WORKS
- the Hoya 77mm "Cir-Polarizing" DOES NOT WORK (too thick a bezel)

Tiffen

I bought a Tiffen clear lens for the EX1 and the lens hood would not fit over it. So I did the unthinkable... I filed down the edges of the filter... and sure enough, the lens hood barely makes it over.

Threads still good too... I attached a 77-72mm stepdown ring (with the hood off of course) and everything is dandy.

Keith,

Hoya Pro 1 Digital Circular polariser does work - its just a little hard to turn. It is much lower profile than the other Hoyas - which as you said will not fit.

Just got the B+W 66-1001705 Clear Glass from Adorama. Fits Perfectly. No problem at all getting the lens hood on. They also have the Hoya Pro 1 Digital Protector clear in stock.

Hi Graeme,

Thanks for that -- I'll try to trade my non Pro1 for a Pro1. Of course, w/ the lens hood attached it makes adjustment of the circular filter a little difficult...

Can you reach inside the hood to adjust a polarizing filter, or do you have to take the hood off?

You have to take it off, but it comes off quick.

Linear Polarizer

Can anyone recommend a linear polarizing filter that fits the EX1 without removing the hood other than to adjust. I take it the Tiffen 77MM LOW-LIGHT LINEAR POLARIZER Item Number: 77LLPOL is too fat.

Thanks…

Just wanted to make sure whether the HOYA PRO1 Super HMC filter (ring 3 mm thick, according to the description on webpage) will fit under the EX1's lens hood.

Can anybody confirm? Thanks.

Linear Polarazier, a no no?

Hi all!
I think this is my first post ever, I´m from the still-photography world where you do not put linear polarizers in front of autofocus lenses,is it different on video cameras?? My EX-1 is due tomorrow, I have 77mm B+W Kasemann circular polarizer for the Hasselblad lenses, would be great if I could use this for the EX-1 as well...

Magnus,

While you do not need a circular polarizer for virtually all video cameras on the market today, you will be fine using the B+W filter you have on your camera. I have tested them and they fit fine under the hood. Of course it will be more difficult to turn with the hood installed.

I use B+W filters and I have been very happy with the quality....even for our Canon SLR's the B+W filters are much better than Canon's best.
