Think of a Polarizer filter as Sunglasses for your camera.
What does a Circular Polarizing filter do? What’s the difference between a circular and linear polarizer? Along with UV and ND filters, Polarizer filters are among the essential Digital SLR camera filters every photographer should have this filter guide will explain it all. Polarizing filters provide color and contrast enhancement. Reflected light often shows up as whitish glare that washes out color in an image.
A Polarizer filter corrects this problem producing deep, dramatically blue skies. It also removes glare from non-metallic surfaces, such as windows and water. Color saturation in general, especially outdoors, can be improved significantly by using polarizer filters.
Point your index finger at the sun. With your thumb extended at a right angle (90°), rotate it around the axis of the index finger. It will point out the band of deepest blue from horizon to horizon.
I’ve use Tiffin filters all my professional life as a DP. Retired now, still use Tiffen for my stills.
This works how you want a cpl filter to work. Cuts out reflections pretty well and also gives you a couple stops in bright conditions. The only issue that I’ve ran into, is that the ring to screw on to your lens is super thin. This isn’t an issue as long as the lens you’re attaching it to doesn’t have any sort of lip. My Sony 85, no issue taking it on and off. However, my sigma has a small lip on the end and it’s hard to get any sort of grip to remove it. I wouldn’t say that would be something to stop you from purchasing this, though. Quality is still solid and I’m not finding anything weird while taking photos.
This filter works very well for removing glare on windows of automobiles. This is what I use it for and am glad I bought it.
Does what it's supposed to do.
