The Tiffen 4 x 4" Ultra Pol Linear Polarizer Filter helps to greatly reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. This results in a noticeable increase in the saturation of skies and foliage, as well as clearer imagery when photographing in hazy conditions. A linear polarizer differs from a circular polarizer in that it does not supports use of a camera's autofocus or auto exposure functions; it is best suited for use with manual cameras, such as view cameras, that are not dependent on internal mechanisms to determine focus or metering settings.

This filter is constructed from Water White glass and is made using ColorCore technology, a process that involves laminating the filter substrate between 2 pieces of optical glass and grinding flat to a tolerance of 1/10,000th of an inch. It has a filter factor of 4, requiring two additional stops of exposure for normal results, and measures 4 x 4" / 101.6 x 101.6mm.

Compared to a standard polarizer, the Ultra Pol design strives to increase the polarizing effect for enhanced reduction of reflections and greater color saturation.
Arrange and filter directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light allowing for the absorption of much of the light.
Lessens haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
Strongest effect when used at a 90° from the sun.
Water White optical glass for excellent clarity.

    4 x 4" Ultra Pol Linear Polarizer Filter is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One beautiful and effective filter I used this filter to solve the problem of potting a polarizer on my Hasselblad 40mm/F4 C *T* Distagon lens (B104 filter). I made an adapter from a trimmed down a 4 diameter PVC pipe coupler, four 1 angle brackets some construction adhesive and duct tape. This adapter slips over the front of the lens and allows rotation for the desired polarization. Cost to make is about $10. It is not pretty to look at, but this set up takes beautiful scenic pictures and is essential for shots of water

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Filter I use a Panasonic HVX-200A with the Chrosziel mattebox with 2 filter holders (standard 4x5.65 and rotating 4x4). I film a lot of outdoor sports, like football, soccer, softball, diving, etc. and this polarizer eliminates harsh reflections from the sun or other light and brings out a subtle glow of the skin and surroundings. Rotation adjustment on the mattebox yields even better results, making the sky bluer, and increasing contrast between cloud and sky. In diving I'm able to eliminate practically all reflections on the surrounding water and focus on what's really important - the diver. One can see exactly where the diver hits and what happens below the water as well. A real must have for filmmakers!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing glare control I was shooting a shot with a hardwood floor that was reflecting the light from the window. A spin of the filter tray in the matte box and it was gone. Amazing.
