The Agfa Photo 58mm Multi-Coated 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. 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 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.

This filter features a multi-coated optical glass construction to help reduce internal reflections and improve light transmission and contrast. It also features an aluminum filter ring to provide durability and help reduce jamming.

Helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface.
Polarizing filters arrange, and filter, directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of the light.
Clears up haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
Strongest effect when used at a 90° from the sun.
Multi-coating helps minimize reflections and improve overall image contrast and 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 AGFA PHOTO 58mm Multi-Coated Circular Polarizer Filter:

          The Sales team was by far the best I have ever seen but the product I requested wasn't the best. I would not shop on price point (I am a novice so I thought it would be ok). Definitely coming back but just for another product.
