Product Highlights
  • Minimize Reflections and Glare
  • Reduces Haze and Blue Cast in Landscapes
  • Enhances Color and Tonal Saturation
  • Lighter, Brighter Optical Density
  • Requires +1.3 Stop for Normal Exposure
  • Warming Tone Adds Red/Yellow Coloring
  • Thin Filter Ring Design
  • Highly Polished Glass Construction

The Singh-Ray 77mm LB Warming Circular Polarizer Thin Mount Filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. This results in a noticeable increase in the saturation of skies and foliage, as well as clearer imagery when photographing in hazy conditions. A circular polarizer differs from a linear polarizer in that it supports full use of a camera's autofocus and auto exposure functions.

The LB designation of this filter stands for "Lighter, Brighter", which refers to the lower optical density of the filter that enables shorter shutter speeds or smaller f/stops to be used when the filter is in place. The brighter design of the filter also enables a brighter viewfinder image to aid in composition as well as improves auto exposure and focusing performance. Additionally, the filter provides a warming effect to imagery by imparting a slight red/yellowish hue across the entire image.

Singh-Ray ring-mounted filters are constructed from highly polished proprietary glass to provide notable image quality and clarity. The thin ring mount design measures 4.8mm-thick and helps to prevent vignetting when used on wide-angle lenses. It does not feature front threads for stacking filters or using clip-on style lens caps.

Reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface.
Arrange and filter directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light allowing for the absorption of much of the light.
Lessens haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
Strongest effect when used at a 90° from the sun.
"Lighter, Brighter" design enables shorter shutter speeds or smaller apertures to be used compared to other circular polarizer filters.
Warming effect adds a red/yellowish tone to imagery in order to minimize overwhelming cool tones and add a brighter appearance.
Thin filter ring helps to prevent vignetting when used on wide-angle lenses.

      Warms up the scene just a little to make a big difference in the final image.

          Comments about Singh-Ray 77mm LB Warming Circular Polarizer Thin Mount Filter:

          A friend once said, 'put a low quality filter on a high quality lens and you will get mediocre results'. So when in came time to buy filters, I went right to Singh-Ray. As a portrait & nature photographer, I began using it in the natural world with exceptional results! Then tried it for a portrait shoot with with a fair-skinned caucasian family. This really blew me away! The results were outstanding, magazine quality, very natural tones & depth. The filter fits onto the lens smoothly and the movable ring glides easily to adjust warming tonality. I highly recommend this LB warming circular polarizer!

            Comments about Singh-Ray 77mm LB Warming Circular Polarizer Thin Mount Filter:

            I recently lost one of these to the rocky coastline of Maine as a gust of wind knocked over my tripod. "Luckily" this was the only item to be damaged. However, as a landscape photographer, I found I could not go another day without this filter so, despite the high price tag, I bought another for my 28mm Zeiss. I love this filter! Your lens is only as good as its cheapest element, and I am confident to say I would keep this on my lens indefinitely! Colors are GREAT! Glass and ring are of excellent construction! Highly recommended! PS Try this bad boy on a sunrise/sunset!

            Thin and Warm!

              Comments about Singh-Ray 77mm LB Warming Circular Polarizer Thin Mount Filter:

              First off, I own the Singh-Ray Vari-N-Trio. It's a great filter but it's extremely expensive and the vignetting is so strong that you need to zoom out to 35mm so that you don't get black corners. I thought I could keep it on my lens the whole time and use it on the minimum density when not doing long exposures, but even then it still cuts of 4 stops of light and as I couldn't use the filter at 24mm.

              So, needless to say I wanted a thin polarizer that didn't cut out too much light and that I could use at 24mm wihtout strong vignetting. Why didn't I buy the LB Color Combo? Two reasons. Price and light. 400$ for the thin mount is a lot of money. 240$ is still pricey but is much more reasonable. I like the touch that the color intensifier adds, but you can get a similiar effect in photoshop. The warming effect on this polarizer is neet and counters the cool look that some polarizers have. Also, Having a polarizer than only cut out 1 1/3 stops of light is great (the Color Combo cuts out 2 stops)! That way you can either keep the polarizer on when the light gets low or you can still keep the filter on when you need a fast shutter speed (for example, bird in flight)

              For handheld shots this filter is a must. These filters are very well built as they are all made by hand. You get what you pay for.

              Comments about Singh-Ray 77mm LB Warming Circular Polarizer Thin Mount Filter:

              I use this filter most of the time for daylight landscape and even for outdoor portraiture. I love it for the extra light it allows to come in, and for the warmish tone it conveys. The thin mount is quite effective on a "EF-S 10-22mm" (@10mm on a cropped body) and on a "EF 17-40mm f/4L" (@17mm on a ff body) as well. The downside is: it's a bit expensive, and you can't use your regular lens cap to protect it (buy a push-on lens cap).

                        This is a great filter that has to be in your bag. I like the warm added by the warming component of the filter. Although it is a thin mount, beware that it will still vignette at 19mm or less on my Nikon 16-35mm f4.0 lens. For the most part this is not an issue since shots involving the sky shouldn't be polarized anyway at these extreme wide angle settings but it is an issue for foliage shots.

                        Singh-Ray makes great filters but the information does not tell you that you cannot use a snap-on lens cap with the thin mount filter. There is nothing for the cap to snap onto. Otherwise it is a great polarizer and warming filter.

                        Best polarizer I have used. Allows much more light to the sensor than most polarizers allowing for better use in low light situations.
