LEE Filters SW150 overview

  • 1Description

The 150 x 150mm SW150 Circular Polarizer Filter from LEE Filters is compatible with a LEE Filters SW150-series filter holder and helps to reduce reflections as well as 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.

This filter is non-coated and is constructed from optical glass for clarity as well as color fidelity. When using the 150 x 150mm SW150 Circular Polarizer Filter, the desired degree of polarization is achieved by turning the filter holder it is placed in.

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

    LEE Filters SW150 reviews

    150 x 150mm SW150 Circular Polarizer Filter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good I'm no professional gear review and have only had the filter for a few shoots due to being backordered, but here are my thoughts. No apparent vignetting or chromatic aberration. Color shift seems on par with other higher end polarizers. Fits the Lee SW150 Mark II flawlessly. Very easy to mount the filter and rotate for the best possible glare reduction before or after you slide it into the holder. Super happy to finally have a filter set for my 14-24mm! I am currently using it primarily for architecture photography, but am very excited to take it on an upcoming vacation to grab some landscape imagery.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BIG Fine quality. Nice and large to cover range of lens sizes. I use it with my Rokinon 14mm and use the Lee SW Mark Li holder.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product Does exactly as it claims. Great for correcting hues in the right situations. Definitely a must have for wide angle lenses!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice product, but corner chipped This product is very well made and it is unfortunate that it came to me with a small chip on the corner--though it has no impact on the image quality. I'm not used to using such large square filters. Price is a little on the expensive side, but less than some of the other manufacturers. Image quality is superior. It is delicate so be very careful when using it. I recommend getting the 10-filter bag holder (though it would be nice to have one half that size as 10 filters would break my bank, for sure!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Quality I bought this to use with my Tokina 16-28mm and Nikon D750 and have used it in a wide variety of landscape scenarios so far. Its glass is great quality and keeps images sharp. Only downside is the price tag. I would recommend this to someone who actively shoots landscape and water subjects with extreme wide angle lenses.
