The Tiffen 49mm Linear Polarizer Filter 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 only differs from a circular polarizer in that it does not contain a quarter wave plane that enables use of auto focus and exposure features. Linear polarizers are best suited for use with manual cameras, such as view cameras, that are not dependent on internal mechanisms to determine focus or metering settings.

Tiffen filters are made using ColorCore technology, a process that involves laminating the filter substrate between 2 pieces of optical glass, grinding flat to a tolerance of 10,000th of an inch, and then mounting to precision metal rings.

    49mm Linear Polarizer Filter is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice little filter I began shooting again after a 20-year hiatus, and this filter arrived from B&H in pristine condition. It's your basic polarizer, a must for a lot of outdoor shooting...

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappoointing This product appears to be well made, but I was very disappointed at how ineffective it is. I don't own any other polarizer filters, but this filter is less effective than my cheap clip-on polarizing sunglasses. Way less. Blue sky or reflections are reduced barely perceptively as you rotate the filter. There is no documentation included: no specs, no instructions. It comes in a poorly designed, unattractive, one-size-fits-all, dangerous box: good luck opening it without scratching the filter or launching it across the room.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK, but could be more effective I've played with some LPFs in the past and can tell that this Tiffen filter has a great build quality, feels solid and can be (un)mounted easily on my Sony NEX-5. But the polarizing effect isn't as strong as hoped: testing it on my LCD monitor, it only darkened the screen a bit (like a ND 0.6 filter). Perhaps the best you can get for this money, but I'd suggest you invest a little more...
