Product Highlights
  • Helps to Eliminate Reflections and Glare
  • Reduces Haze and Blue Cast in Landscapes
  • Greater Color and Tonal Saturation
  • EVERCLEAR 5 Coating Technology
  • Ultra Thin Design Reduces Vignetting

The Cokin 77mm PURE Harmonie 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. A polarizer is able to absorb much of this polarized light and, in turn, increase the saturation of skies and foliage, cut through distant haze, and minimize reflections in glass and on water.

A circular polarizer differs from a linear polarizer in that it integrates a quarter wave plane within a linear polarizing filter. The addition of this helps to circularly polarize reflected light, which enables your camera's autofocus and auto-exposure mechanisms to function properly.

The EVERCLEAR 5 Coating Technology is a multi-layered coating applied to the filter substrate in order to provide protection against five distinct elements: water, oil, dust, soil, and scratches. In addition to the multi-layer coating, this filter also features an incredibly thin design, measuring just 4.5mm thick. This slender profile is ideally suited for use with wide angle lenses in order to prevent vignetting. It does not have front threads for stacking additional filters, but will accept standard lens caps.

        Comments about Cokin 77mm PURE Harmonie Circular Polarizer Filter:

        This is the world's thinnest polarizer, that is very important when using ultra-wide angle lens.
        This filter does the job without vignetting even at 11mm.

        Massive distortion / poor design

        By Caesar

        from Northern VA

        About Me Semi-pro Photographer

        Pros

          Cons

          • Insufficient Thread
          • Massive Distortion

          Best Uses

            Comments about Cokin 77mm PURE Harmonie Circular Polarizer Filter:

            I have been using Pro1 slim circular polarizers from Hoya/Kenko for years. They're great but I found the rear, multi-coated surface to scratch easily and hard to clean so when I heard about the PURE Harmonie series of Circular Polarizers from COKIN I decided to give them a try. I bought two, one in 77mm, the other in 82mm. Big mistake. Both greatly distort the image, the 77mm is so bad my lens won't focus half the time. In fact, you can see the distortion through the view finder and in a simple newspaper test (look at the text through the polarizer than move it arround as your eye stays focused in the same spot, you'll see the text weave and wobble). The 82 is only marginally better. Furthermore, in an effort to make these filters as thin as possible, their thread is extremely shallow, these filters are very hard to mount on the lens and I've had them just pop out while hiking with the filter on my lens. Do yourself a favor and buy another brand.
