The Heliopan Bay 6 Linear Polarizing Filter is a high-quality polarizer. A polarizing filter is used to make a blue sky bluer, enhance clouds or eliminate reflections. This filter is characterized by superb Schott glass and a rugged filter ring that both provide a snug fit and which is not prone to jamming.  

If you're out walking on a lovely day - in the mountains or at the beach - and you want to get a fabulous shot of a cloud-filled sky or make the water seem more saturated, then a polarizer is the way to go. This filter is the best way to make the clouds stand out, increase or decrease the saturation of the ocean or increase or decrease the reflection off the water. You can also use this filter when shooting into glass or windows since it will, again, either increase or decrease reflections.

If you're shooting black and white and want to simulate a threatening storm, try throwing on a #25 Red filter. The vista will take on the appearance of an imminent, ominous storm.

Polarizing filters are used to select which light rays enter your camera lens. They can remove unwanted reflections from non-metallic surfaces such as water or glass and also saturate colors providing better contrast. The effect can be seen through the viewfinder and varied by rotating the filter. The filter factor varies according to how the filter is rotated and its orientation to the sun.

Heliopan has been a leader in the filter industry since 1949.  They are known for their high quality and production standards. Their slim mounts facilitate using them with wider angle lenses. Heliopan offers most of their filters with either their standard hard coating or with their industry leading SH-PMC 16 layer multi-coating that transmits over 99.5% of the light striking it on to the image plane for the lowest flare and greatest color saturation.

This filter is specific to Rollei's Bay 6 filter mount.

Note: Linear polarizers are used with most video and manual focus photo cameras. They are not recommended for auto-focus SLR cameras

This filter eliminates ultraviolet rays to remove haze from outdoor shots as well as polarizing the light to remove reflections, and increase color saturation, without affecting the overall color balance
Effective for making a blue sky bluer, making clouds stand out or increasing (or decreasing) the color saturation of water
Heliopan filters are "dyed in the mass" and ground, polished and coated to the highest standards of the German optical industry
All Heliopan screw-in type and series size filters are mounted in precision black anodized brass rings to eliminate binding or cross threading and to ensure optimal alignment
