LEE Filters RF75 Clip-on Polarizing Filter (Requires RF75 Filter Holder)

B&H # LEARRFCOP Mfr # RF75POLA
No Longer Available

The Lee RF75 Clip-on Polarizing Filter - This filter, part of the RF75 system, attaches to the four studs on the front of the holder. Twist and click action secures the 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.

Note! RF75 Filter Holder sold separately - 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

    Comments about LEE Filters RF75 Clip-on Polarizing Filter (Requires RF75 Filter Holder):

    The quality of this product is excellent. I have to hand it to Lee for making really nice filters & glass! Their graduated neutral density filters are made of plastic however give the least color cast I've seen yet! Right up there with Singh-Ray! However, this is NOT for a Leica Rangefinder!!! It blocks the focus point in the viewfinder, and thus is impossible to focus the camera without first removing the filter (which is a pain,) fosucing, then reattaching the filter. This slows down the process so much it makes it impossible to use the rangefinder while walking around without a tripod. I'd use it on an SLR, but I've already got Singh-Ray for that, and they can go bigger than 67mm holders!
