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 58mm 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.

              B+W filters always have a feel of quality when you work with them, and this Circular Polarizer SC Filter doesn't let you down. The adjustment ring moves smoothly and lets you adjust the amount of polarization. I was shooting out in San Francisco Bay yesterday and was very pleased with the results.

                Comments about B+W 58mm Circular Polarizer SC Filter:

                I have used it a few times in landscape shots. It does an excellent job of making the blue in the sky pop. Haven't really used it much to eliminate glare on water or glass yet but don't anticipate a different experience.
