The B+W 58mm Digital Pro 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. The light from the sun naturally becomes partially polarized due to reflecting off electrons in air molecules, causing the light to scatter into what appears as haze. A polarizing filter arranges, and filters, this directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of this light. This results in a noticeable reduction of glare and reflections from non-metallic surfaces and an increase in the saturation of skies and foliage.

A circular polarizer only differs from a linear polarizer in that it contains a quarter wave plane in addition to the linear polarizing filter. The addition of this quarter wave plane is to circularly polarize the linearly polarized light for the use of auto focus and exposure functions. Due to how the light is broken down and filtered with a linear polarizer, auto focus and exposure accuracy become skewed during use. When the light becomes circularly polarized, it permits the use of these functions.

B+W filters are constructed from high quality Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. They feature a brass filter ring for durability as well as jamming prevention. The Digital-Pro mount refers to the brushed chrome filter ring opposed to a standard black ring.

                Removing the polarizer from the package, I noticed it was much heavier than others I have owned. This isn't a complaint but a testament to the quality materials and workmanship of this item. It rotated smoothly and worked as it was supposed to. Very pleased with this product.

                  Comments about B+W 58mm Digital Pro Circular Polarizer Filter:

                  I got good results with this filter while shooting scenes from small boats and ships on water with lots of reflections on sunny days. It also worked great on beach scenes.

                  Like all screw in filters, care has to be taken mounting and dismounting it. Have a set of filter wrenchs in your kit- just in case. A micro fiber cloth is handy to quickly wipe off the inevitable
                  fingerprint or two.
