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 52mm 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.

          Circular Polarizing - Not so..

            Comments about Panasonic 52mm PL Circular Polarizer Filter:

            Ok, first thing first, I didn't do a research how plausible this product because I assumed it should be good since it's Panasonic. I have a Lumix G3 camera, and unfortunately how great my camera is the exact opposite of this filter. It doesn't work, it just makes my picture darker than usual. The sky doesn't really look better at all, infact for me it was worst. I think my post processing is better than this filter.

                  Its the first time i buy an accessory for my camera, and this is my first polarizing lens, i don't know how good this is against other brands but what i can say is that my pictures are definitely better , my wife teach children to swim and often they do demonstrations, water photos are great as outdoor ones too fit great on the fz100
