Heliopan 710540 overview

  • 1Description

The Heliopan 105mm Slim 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 filter is constructed using high quality Schott glass, which maintains optical clarity and contrast to help render scenes with greater fidelity and resolution. 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 filter features a brass mounting ring that is demarcated with calibration dots to help with finding consistent rotational positioning when TTL viewing is not possible. The ring also features a slim mount design, measuring 5mm-thick, that helps to prevent vignetting when used on wide-angle lenses. It does not feature front threads for mounting additional filters or lens caps.

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 maintain light transmission and image quality.
Constructed from Schott glass for high optical clarity.
Thin-profile filter ring reduces likelihood of vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses.

    Heliopan 710540 reviews

    105mm Slim Circular Polarizer SH-PMC Filter is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well made, but.... I bought a Heliopan UV filter for my 400mm and was really impressed vs Rodenstock. The images were unreal sharp and crisp. So I was expecting the same from the circ polarizer. It is nice and slim, rotated smoothly like a Zeiss lens. But...the coating gave me fits. I could not get fingerprints, moisture from my breath, or anything off of it. I just couldn't get it evenly remotely clean without swirls, oil, tiny droplets off of it- and way to high maintenance. It was like a magnet for stuff. I returned it and ordered a B&W Extra wide 105mm Circ Polarizer and Zeiss and Singh Ray lens cleaners.. We will see...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best 105mm Circ Pol This seems so much better than the B+H 105mm Kaeseman I tried, which was thick, heavy, and impossibly stiff to rotate. Unlike some other reviewers, I have no problem turning my Heliopan. It's much slimmer and lighter than the B+W I tried. I'm going to mount this on the front of my Foundation Filter system. Multicoating is a big plus. Just buy this one if you're looking for a 105mm circ pol. I have only one minor complaint- The filter ships in a flimsy leatherette pouch. I'm going to ditch the pouch and buy one of the B+H plastic filter cases.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good optics, jagged rotation The Multi-Coating SH-PMC works as promised, good quality optics with no color cast, the construction of the rotational ring though is a bit of a letdown, not that smooth for that price tag. Screwed on a 105mm Front Polariser Ring of a Lee Filter Holder system I get color cast free pics with great IQ, but rotating the polarizer to the right polarizing angle needs some agile fingers and patience if you have a 4x6 grad ND filter on the slot behind it! Also, as all slim screw on filters, this CPL filter is a 5mm THIN filter, meaning there's no front threading to screw on an additional filter; for that you need a regular sized filter. If you want a smooth rotating CPL get a B+W Kaeseman, if you want a SLIM (no vignetting on wide angle lens/full frame DSLR) CPL with great IQ and easy cleaning multi-coated glass get this one. On a side note, the leather protective pouch it comes with is kinda big for a 105mm round filter, 6x6.5 !! Good quality though, velcro envelope type.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from it's way overpriced!!! It's not smooth at all! When you mount it on Lee holder with 1 Lee GND filter, you'll have hard time to adjust this CPL. So often, you will have several finger prints on it. It's OK to be thin and overpriced, but dont' make it rotate smoothly? It looks like I am not the only one has this issue.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not smooth when rotating. Over priced. It is about 5mm thick. Because it is so thin, it is hard to put fingers on it. When you rotate it the tension is not smooth. Considering the price, if I can buy it again, I would buy a regular B+W one which is cheaper also.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome best product on the market
    Date published: 2013-09-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excelent but.... Excelent polarizer! But I use it with a Lee Filter Holder with 77mm filter holder adapter in a full frame camera. At 16mm it vinets with two filter slots in the holder, so i have to zoom a little my 16-35. Unfortunately a month back it fell down into the water and made a little scratch near de thread. But still works! And yes its made of brass, i can see the yellow in the metal after the fall. :)
