Questions? Ask our experts:

Light rays which are reflected become polarized. Polarizing filters are used to select which light rays enter your camera lens. They can remove unwanted reflections from non-metallic surfaces such as water or glass and also saturate colors providing better contrast. The effect can be seen through the viewfinder and changed by rotating the filter. The filter factor varies according to how the filter is rotated and its orientation to the sun. Filter factor is between 2.3 and 2.8 (approx. +1.3 stops).

Linear polarizers are used with most video and manual focus photo cameras. They are not recommended for auto-focus SLR cameras.

PLEASE NOTE: All auto-focus SLR and certain manual focus SLR cameras require circular polarizers. Consult your instruction manual.

    Comments about Hoya 40.5mm Linear Polarizer Glass Filter:

    …but not for a wide angle outdoors, wider than about a 28mm 35mm full-frame equivalent. Anything wider and the sky gets wonky, as the sky doesn't have the same polarization across it - you'll wind up with a dark center and light edges, or vice-versa...

    Using mine on a Mamiya C3 normal 80mm lens.
