LEE Filters PLC-G overview

  • 1Description

Light rays which are reflected become polarized. 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 changed by rotating the filter. The filter factor varies according to how the filter is rotated and its orientation to the sun. Filter factor is between 2.3 and 2.8 (approx. +1.3 stops).

Circular polarizers are specifically designed for use with auto-focus SLR cameras (They will also work on manual systems and video cameras without problems).

This filter is glass and measures 4x4".

LEE Filters PLC-G reviews

4x4" Circular Polarizer Glass Filter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2nd best glass I've bought! I use this mainly to saturate the sky a bit more for both landscape and high fashion photography. Because i almost always use ultra wides i dont get vignetting with this filter. Its a lovely piece of glass second to my nikon 70-200 vr2 as it doubles as a nd6. What i dont like about it is that if you plot it in the wrong way it wont work so getting it wrong may mean a miss of a shot. But to me Im quite use to it already, just mark a sticky tape on the side which faces the front! Easy although i dont think any filter is worth over 60bux but its not like i know how to make any

Rated 4 out of 5 by from expensive, but works well Product is good for landscape photography to deepen the color of blue skies, reduce glare from water and wet surfaces, and saturate colors. Polarizers are basically essential for photographing waterfalls. This particular polarizer slides into slots in the Lee filter system that, with adaptor rings, can be used with multiple lens sizes. This saves on the cost of having to buy a different filter for every size lens. I have used this filter with lenses from 18-200 mm. Another advantage of this filter system is that it can be used in combination with a graduated or split neutral density filter that can be slid up and down depending on the location of the horizon in the frame. Make sure that the Lee logo faces away from the lens, otherwise, the polarizing effect is weakened.I have smashed two of the same filters before, so make sure to protect them from any unexpected free falls, and collisions with the ground or other hard objects or surfaces. It hurts to pay the $ for a 4x4 inch piece of glass. Obviously I have found the filter useful enough to spend $ on two replacements over the years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great filter I still prefer round polarizers for normal use, as this is difficult to adjust while looking through the viewfinder to see effect (depends on how easy your holder rotates). I knew it would be more work to rotate the filter, but forgot that I would normally look through the viewfinder to adjust my Circular Polarizer. What this filter will be great for is tripod work, and in combination with ND and GND filters. Obviously with GND filters it will limit the amount you can rotate the CP to 90 degree increments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Polarizer This is an excellent polarizer for an excellent filtration system. The polarization effect is clean, clear, if a little subtle in some cases. There is little to no color cast when rotating, which is ideal when photographing scenes where you need ideal color-correct output. Using this filter with multiple filters in the Lee filter holder is complicated. Used solo, it is great, however its effect can be a little subtle in some cases where you would hope it was more powerful. When you need a combination of graduated ND filtration as well as polarization, use gets fairly complex. At a minimum, a tandem adapter and two Lee foundation kits are necessary to allow independent movement of the polarizer vs. the GND filter(s). Care should be taken to keep filter depth at a minimum when using the tandem adapter, so the amount of filters you can stack is limited on wide angle lenses (2-3 at most, including the polarizer). For normal through telephoto focal lengths, stacking is usually not a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great polarizer I recently switched from the Cokin Z-pro filter holder system to the Lee system. The Lee system is so much better!! So far the Lee polarizer has done a wonderful job saturating colors and removing glare. I use it mainly for landscape work. For anyone thinking about buying a filter holder system, take my word and go with Lee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sunny day's need Help you a lot with unwanted reflection. Saturate the color and reduce haze in your image. Best with LEE standard filter holder. And remember it'll reduce the light in 2- stops just like a regular .6ND filter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect CP to use without gradients Deciding between this and the Lee 105mm CP. Decided on the 4x4 for the price difference and because I don't plan on using any gradient filters in the near future so I don't need to worry only being able to rotate the glass 90degrees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted I'm a big of the Lee Filter system. This polarizer is no exception. The quality is great. Does the job of a polarizer. Worth the money.
