The Heliopan 82mm Circular Polarizer SH-PMC Filter helps to 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 circular polarizer differs from a linear polarizer in that it supports full use of a camera's autofocus and auto exposure functions.

The SH-PMC multi-coating provides a total of 16 coatings, 8 per side, for significant reflection reduction (below 0.2%) as well as dust and moisture repellence for easier cleaning.

This Heliopan filter is constructed from Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. It features a brass filter ring for durability as well as jamming prevention.

Reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface.
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.
SH-PMC multi-coating offers both protection to the glass and helps to improve light transmission and image quality.
Constructed from Schott glass for optical clarity.
Brass filter ring helps to prevent jamming and provides additional strength.
Dual threading with 82mm front filter threads permits combining with other filters.

    82mm Circular Polarizer SH-PMC Filter is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great filter for great lens As everything Heliopan, this is piece of art. Very smooth rotation, brass construction with precise threads, rotation scale on a rim, optically perfect glass, and top notch coating. I use it with EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM on top of Canon 5D Mark II, and it shows no vignetting even at 16mm at f/2.8 if focusing distance is more than 2 feet (there is some vignetting in corners at 16mm when you focus at something located closer than 2 feet though, and if this is important for you, then you should look at slim or wide-angle filter instead).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Highest Quality There Is I own B&W filters, Singh Ray filters, Lee and on and on. This is my first Heliopan. Not easy to push the order button on a circular polarizer for over $ when perfectly good and functional ones are available for much less. However, the build quality, the glass quality, the numbers on the edge of the filter enabling repeatable settings make this filter well worth it.So why didn't I give it 5 stars? One reason only. The case it comes in leaves a bit to be desired and forces you to buy a filter case. For the money, it should be better than a plastic case with a less than pristine backing material.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expensive, but worth it. Got the Heliopan for my Zeiss 21mm lens. I've tried numerous manufacturer's polarizers over the years and as lens glass got better, the filter had to follow-suit. This one is top notch. Great polarization granularity, excellent glass quality and weel built mechanically. I would have given it another star except that the construction is a little too tight, and the ring-edge is tough to grip, making adjustments with the lens hood on problematic. Heliopan, a little more edge please!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Knock's out the glare! Paired this with the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM Lens. This is a great polarizer. Heliopan uses Zeiss glass and you can see it in the image quality thats produced. Flaring is greatly reduced and you can take clear pictures of subjects behind glass panes that are full of glare from the sun. If you are looking for a polarizer this is it!
