Formatt 77mm Linear Polarizer Filter - 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.

Formatt filters are available in a full range of color grads, effects, corrections, neutral density and black and white filtration.

Formatt, a company with three generations of professional filter-making experience produces every filter to the highest technical standards. The finest materials, together with state of-the-art production technology have resulted in a standard of optical excellence unmatched anywhere else.

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

      Comments about Formatt Hitech 77mm Linear Polarizing Filter:

      First thing I was told... Linear Polarizer Filters will not work with my Canon 7D (and other digital cameras). Supposedly autofocus malfunctions. WRONG! Attached to my EFS10-22mm, autofocus works no different than normal. I've used Linear Polarizers on my EFS18-200mm and 70-300mm lenses without issue. Combined with Depth-Of-Field tweaking, the Linear filter works great when photographing well defined clouds or objects agains't the sky. I say put this "will not work with" rumor in the "Untrue" folder next to claims regarding Nitrogen filled tires. I've tested both claims and found them inaccurate. To me, Linear Polarizer filters are an important part of my camera kit. I prefer them over Circular Polarizer filters.
