Breakthrough Photography DARKCPL-3-49MM overview

  • 1Description

Filter out polarized light and saturate the skies and foliage in your pictures with the 49mm X4 Dark 3-Stop Titanium Circular Polarizer Filter from Breakthrough Photography. This 49mm CPL filter is specially designed to offer a notably neutral performance that avoids color cast, and achieves a level of darkening comparable to many neutral density filters with an 8x filter factor for three stops of exposure reduction. Two types of coatings are applied: a nano coating that repeals water for easier cleaning, and a multi-resistant coating to reduce reflection and increase the durability of the glass.

Circular polarizers can be used to reduce reflections such as in water and glass windows and work to improve shadow detail in situations with broad dynamic ranges. The X4 CPL marries these effects with a rugged design made for the outdoors, being made of clear Schott B270 glass and a titanium frame that gives it a light yet durable build. The sides of the filter are knurled for better grip when adding or removing it from the lens, and a 49mm front thread allows for stacking filters and for the use of optional accessories.

  • 49mm circular polarizer filter, with an 8x filter factor for a 3-stop exposure reduction
  • Helps darken skies, saturate foliage, reduce reflections, and improve shadow detail depending on the situation
  • Designed for color neutral performance, with no yellow cast or spikes near the infrared range
  • Nano coating to repel water and simplify cleaning, and multi-resistant coating to improve durability and image performance
  • Durable Titanium frame and Schott B270 glass, with knurled sides for an easier grip
  • 49mm front threads allow for stacking or optional accessories to be used simultaneously with filter

    Breakthrough Photography DARKCPL-3-49MM reviews

    49mm X4 Dark 3-Stop Titanium Circular Polarizer Filter is rated 1.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible flare I bought this to reduce flare when stacking CPL and ND filters. However, this "dark CPL" produces much worse flare problems than my stacked filters. If the sun shines anywhere on the filter (even it's if well outside the image frame) it produces huge washed out fog areas. Only if the filter is fully shaded is it usable. Totally defeats the point of having expensive lenses with excellent multi coating.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from terrible flare Bought this to try to reduce flare when stacking square filters, but this single filter is much worse. Total loss of contrast over large areas if the sun is shining on any part of the filter.
