  • 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

            Works magic on my EF 50mm L f1.2 when shooting outdoors and nature. Lake shots are outstanding. And if you use it in the city, the reflection on the building glass is gone!!! - (or vice verse).

                  Works fine ! But as expected another glass degrades sharpness slightly.
                  I use on a Canon Lens 45mm tilt/shift and as expected, when shift is in use the polarizers degrades sharpness even more - to the point that I may not use it ! If landscapes or architecure photos I may elect to use it as a component in an assembly of photographs that combines as an example; sky or water or windows with the polarizer and the rest of the scene without the filter. Nothing wrong with the filter, just the reality of photography...

                    Have not used this filter very much yet. It is very easy to attach to the lens and wow does it ever enhance the color of the sky. I can't wait to go out and so what this filter can do with refections from water.

                      I use this photo for a lot of my outdoor shots. works well to sharpen up clouds and excellent for making lakes, etc. clear. if you want to put a bunch of photos together to make a type of panoramic view it doesn't really work.

                          I'm using it in the Northeast where there is always snow, and the filter really helps bring out the details in the frame.
