Formatt Hitech BF 86-85POLAR Overview

Formatt Combination Linear Polarizing and 85 Glass Filter - 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.

Using tungsten film in daylight will produce a bluish cast. The 85 series will produce natural colors when shooting tungsten film outdoors.   

This 85/polarizer combo filter converts Type B (tungsten) film to daylight and produces slightly cooler results than the 85B.

Formatt, a company with three generations of professional filter-making experience produces every filter to the highest technical standards. The finest materials, together with state of-the-art production technology have resulted in a standard of optical excellence unmatched anywhere else.

Linear polarizers are used with most manual focus cameras and are not recommended for auto-focus cameras. All auto-focus and certain manual focus cameras require circular polarizers. Consult your instruction manual.
This filter eliminates ultraviolet rays to remove haze from outdoor shots as well as polarizing the light to remove reflections, and increase color saturation
