Sandmarc 82mm Hybrid Pro Neutral Density/Polarizer Kit

BH #SANDPL82 • MFR #SM-306
Sandmarc 82mm Hybrid Pro Neutral Density/Polarizer Kit
Key Features
  • Set of 3 ND/Polarizer Filters
  • +4, 5, and 6 Stops
  • Darkens Entire Image
  • Reduce Shutter Speeds, Widen Apertures
This Hybrid Pro Neutral Density/Polarizer Kit from Sandmarc contains three filters that are compatible with lenses that feature 82mm front filter threads. Each filter combines a solid neutral density effect with a circular polarizer effect. The filters provide a 4-, 5-, and 6-stop exposure reduction, respectively. Their densities create a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. By slowing your exposure time or increasing your aperture, you are able to control depth of field and convey movement more easily.

Sandmarc SM-306 Overview

This Hybrid Pro Neutral Density/Polarizer Kit from Sandmarc contains three filters that are compatible with lenses that feature 82mm front filter threads. Each filter combines a solid neutral density effect with a circular polarizer effect. The filters provide a 4-, 5-, and 6-stop exposure reduction, respectively. Their densities create a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. By slowing your exposure time or increasing your aperture, you are able to control depth of field and convey movement more easily.

Each filter can simultaneously help 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.

These filters are constructed from optical glass for clarity as well as color fidelity and feature aluminum alloy filter rings that can be rotated in order to adjust the intensity of the polarization effect.

Filter kit with 3 filters that each provide a neutral density and circular polarization effect
Neutral density filter effect darkens the image, allowing you to photograph with a longer shutter speed or wider aperture than normally required
Providing a 4-, 5-, and 6-stop exposure reduction, respectively, these filters allow you to control depth of field and convey movement more easily
Polarizing filter effect arranges and filters directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of the light
Helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface
Clears up haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors
Strongest polarization effect when used at a 90° angle from the sun
Circular polarizer effect is ideal for use with digital cameras and autofocus lenses where a linear polarizer will often disrupt auto exposure and focus features
Constructed from optical glass for clarity and color fidelity
Multi-coated to prevent internal ghosting and reflections
Thin, lightweight aluminum alloy filter ring design helps to prevent vignetting
Filter rings can be rotated to adjust the intensity of the polarization effect
82mm front filter threads allow for use with other filters
Padded pouch for storage and transport
