Vu Filters Ariel Overview

Useful for minimizing reflections and glare and enhancing the overall color and tonal saturation is the 46mm Ariel Circular Polarizing Filter from Vu Filters. Utilizing HiVu Polarization Optics it filters out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface, resulting 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 supports full use of a camera's autofocus and auto exposure functions.

Further enhancing image quality is a White Balanced Multi-Coating that ensures that there is little to no color shift. Also, a Flat Wave Coating makes the filter's front surface exceptionally smooth for easier cleaning and maintenance. There is also a UV Rejection Coating that reduces UV reflections and ghosting.

This filter is hand crafted and individually inspected for ensuring quality and uses impact resistant Ultra-White Schott glass for maximum performance. The glass edge is black to prevent internal reflections and helps seals the edge. Also, the black anodized CNC aluminum filter frame has Integrated Optik Lock technology that seals the front of the lens from the environment for additional protection.

Reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface.
Arrange and filter directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light allowing for the absorption of much of the light.
Lessens haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
Strongest effect when used at a 90° from the sun.
Optical glass is used in order to maintain clear image quality with high contrast and color fidelity.

question

using such, can also a same size shade be screwed to the filter ?
Asked by: pat h.
Yes, for this filter as with most filters except the thin profile filters, a thread is machined on the outer ring to add another filter or in your case a lens hood. Be aware, this is a polarizing filter, so the front ring where the shade would be attached must turn to align the polarizing filter element.
