Product Highlights
  • Makes a Blue Sky BLuer
  • Enhances Clouds
  • Minimizes Reflections
  • Rotating Filter Ring

Canon Circular Polarizer - 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.

If you're out walking on a lovely day - in the mountains or at the beach - and you want to get a fabulous shot of a cloud-filled sky or make the water seem more saturated, then a polarizer is the way to go. This filter is the best way to make the clouds stand out, increase or decrease the saturation of the ocean or increase or decrease the reflection off the water. You can also use this filter when shooting into glass or windows since it will, again, either increase or decrease reflections.

If you're shooting black and white and want to simulate a threatening storm, try throwing on a #25 Red filter. The vista will take on the appearance of an imminent, ominous storm.

Along with a UV or Skylight Filter, a polarizing filter should be a part of everyone's gear bag. It can turn a run-of-the-mill image into a stunning, creative photo by increasing color saturation.

Note! Circular polarizers are specifically designed for use with auto-focus SLR cameras (They will also work on manual systems and video cameras without problems)

This filter eliminates ultraviolet rays to remove haze from outdoor shots as well as polarizing the light to remove reflections, and increase color saturation, without affecting the overall color balance

      All of my Canon polarizers give me exactly what I see through the lens without any vignetting no matter how wide it may be. Canon has for the first time put threads on the front of this filter so that you can put a lens cap over it which is very helpful..

      This is a very expensive polarizing filter, I of course wanted to pair the great performance of my 16-35f/2.8 but I went wrong with this filter. A friend of mine let use his Heliopan and wow! what a big difference in built quality, besides of course how good the skies look and the glare disappears!
      Besides is way too thin (expected for this one in particular)a bit hard to remove when one need it. Easy to come off when in use!

          Thin polarizer works well on Canon 16-35, but be careful (as with any polarizer) not to over tighten.

            Comments about Canon 1953B001 82mm Circular Polarizing Filter:

            I got some great blue sky with this filter. I am excited to get some lake and landscape photos where you can see the through the water without reflections. The only downside is the nurling to grip and remove the filter is very thin. I may need to purchase a tool for removal. It would also help to secure it tightly so I don't accidently dismount it inadvertantly.

                Took this to Lake Tahoe, where skies are blue and cloudless. The photos that include the sky and landscape-type photos are breathtaking! I was amazed the whole trip how well the polarizer responded. It does its job well in bright sunlight.

                In the past, I've used only B&W filters, but the 82 mm was out of stock when I needed this, so I got the Canon. It's about as good as B&W, and a lot less expensive. I would buy this again.
