Nikon 82mm Circular Polarizer Filter II

BH #NICP82 • MFR #2498
Nikon 82mm Circular Polarizer Filter II
Key Features
  • Circular Polarizer Filter
  • Helps to Eliminate Reflections and Glare
  • Reduces Haze in Landscapes
  • Greater Color and Tonal Saturation
The Nikon 82mm Circular Polarizer Filter II 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.

Nikon 2498 Overview

The Nikon 82mm Circular Polarizer Filter II 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.

Clears up haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
Strongest effect when used at a 90° angle from the sun.
Circular polarizers are ideal for use with digital cameras and autofocus lenses where a linear polarizer will often disrupt auto exposure and focus features.

In the old film photography days I had a ton of filters for each of my lenses. My goto filter for daylight color pictures is the polarizer.

Sadly, I did not connect the filter threads of this filter onto my new z lens correctly. Despite all attempts, I was unable to remove it myself. I ended up taking it to a local camera shop and the only option they had was to cut it off. I've had other nikon polarizers in the past and they've been fine. The rings on this filter are very narrow and if the threads don't set just right, it will be difficult to remove.

Perfect

I have only used the filter once so far since got it due to the weather. It seems to do a good job.

Nikon doesn't specify a filter factor, oddly, for the 82mm and 95mm CPFII, but for all other diameters they state 2.3x (1.2-Stop) to 2.8x (1.5-Stop) for the CPFII.
