Product Highlights
  • Helps to Eliminate Reflections and Glare
  • Reduces Haze and Blue Cast in Landscapes
  • Greater Color and Tonal Saturation
  • Slim Design Reduces Vignetting

The Panasonic 46mm PL 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. A polarizer is able to absorb much of this polarized light and, in turn, increase the saturation of skies and foliage, cut through distant haze, and minimize reflections in glass and on water.

A circular polarizer differs from a linear polarizer in that it integrates a quarter wave plane within a linear polarizing filter. The addition of this helps to circularly polarize reflected light, which enables your camera's autofocus and auto-exposure mechanisms to function properly.

This filter features a slim filter ring design for reducing vignetting with wide angle lenses.

                      It is really light, REALLY light. I know it's just a filter but it feels to light to me...

                      The quality seems fine, turns smoothly with no 'grittiness'. Produces the desired effect when used properly.

                        It´s difficult to find one in the top brands with such a small filter thread (when I want one, it´s never available!), so it´s convenient Panasonic offers a dedicated one for my LX3.
