Product Highlights
  • Helps to Eliminate Reflections and Glare
  • Reduces Haze and Blue Cast in Landscapes
  • Greater Color and Tonal Saturation
  • Single Anti-Reflection Coating
  • Rugged Brass Filter Ring
  • High Quality Schott Glass

The B+W 37mm Circular Polarizer SC 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. This filter is vacuum coated with 1 layer of anti-reflection coating per side to help prevent internal ghosting and reflections as well as improve light transmission.

Circular polarizers are ideal for use with digital cameras and autofocus lenses where a linear polarizer will often disrupt auto exposure and focus features.

            Comments about B+W 37mm Circular Polarizer SC Filter:

            I had to buy a 37mm polarizer for the ridiculously small Olympus 45mm. After looking at all the options I went with the tried and true B&W. it is coated which I require and rotates so smoothly compared to cheaper filters. I can honestly say I find no negatives about this filter as I have had with so many other brands.

              I purchased this to use with my S95 in Thailand and Paris. It worked wonderfully and was sturdy enough to take trekking through the jungle and withstood a few bumps without any damage. Pictures came out clear with nice definition in the clouds and rivers.

                I've been using B+W filters for years and I've never been disappointed in the quality. This filter is no exception. Bought this for my 4/3rds set up. Works great.
