The XP PhotoGear 36mm MagFilter Circular Polarizer Filter is a unique filter and attachment system for use on compact cameras without front filter threads. The MagFilter system employs one thin adhesive metal ring, which is attached to the front of the camera lens, and then incorporates strong magnets into the filter ring itself for a seamless, non-threaded connection. This magnetic connection allows for the filter to be installed and removed quickly while the camera itself retains its thin original profile, even with the adhesive adapter ring attached.

The circular polarizer filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. This results in a noticeable increase in the saturation of skies and foliage, as well as clearer imagery when photographing in hazy conditions. A circular polarizer differs from a linear polarizer in that it supports full use of a camera's autofocus and auto exposure functions. It is constructed from multi-layer coated optical glass and set in an anodized black and red metal filter ring.

      Comments about XP PhotoGear 36mm MagFilter Circular Polarizer Filter:

      The filter is of good quality glass but the magnet could be stronger. I don't think it holds on very well I have a Canon S-95 Just a bit pricy

      Polarizer

      By Squeezel

      from Alexandria, La

      Comments about XP PhotoGear 36mm MagFilter Circular Polarizer Filter:

      This filter was bought for my son's Cannon S110. As always, since the early 1970's, I have relied on B&H for great advice, quality and price. My son loves the filter which adds a little more to an already fine product.
