Cavision 3 x 3" Linear Polarizer Filter

BH #CAP33 • MFR #FTG3X3PL
Cavision 3 x 3" Linear Polarizer Filter
Key Features
  • 1.5 to 6x Filter Factor
  • +0.6 to 2.6 Stops
  • Helps to Eliminate Reflections and Glare
  • Reduces Haze in Landscapes
The Cavision 3 x 3" Linear Polarizer Filter is compatible with filter holders that can accommodate 3mm-thick, 3 x 3" rectangular filters. It helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. The light from the sun naturally becomes partially polarized due to reflecting off electrons in air molecules, causing the light to scatter into what appears as haze. A polarizing filter arranges, and filters, this directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of this light. This results in a noticeable reduction of glare and reflections from non-metallic surfaces and an increase in the saturation of skies and foliage.

Cavision FTG3X3PL Overview

The Cavision 3 x 3" Linear Polarizer Filter is compatible with filter holders that can accommodate 3mm-thick, 3 x 3" rectangular filters. It helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. The light from the sun naturally becomes partially polarized due to reflecting off electrons in air molecules, causing the light to scatter into what appears as haze. A polarizing filter arranges, and filters, this directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of this light. This results in a noticeable reduction of glare and reflections from non-metallic surfaces and an increase in the saturation of skies and foliage.

A linear polarizer differs from a circular polarizer in that it does not contain an additional quarter wave plane. The addition of a quarter wave plane is to circularly polarize linearly polarized light for the use of auto focus and exposure functions. Due to how the light is broken down and filtered with a linear polarizer, in-camera auto focus and exposure accuracy become skewed during use. When the light becomes circularly polarized, it permits the use of these functions. This filter is recommended when not using in-camera exposure metering or autofocus.
