Canon Circular Polarizer - 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.

If you're out walking on a lovely day - in the mountains or at the beach - and you want to get a fabulous shot of a cloud-filled sky or make the water seem more saturated, then a polarizer is the way to go. This filter is the best way to make the clouds stand out, increase or decrease the saturation of the ocean or increase or decrease the reflection off the water. You can also use this filter when shooting into glass or windows since it will, again, either increase or decrease reflections.

If you're shooting black and white and want to simulate a threatening storm, try throwing on a #25 Red filter. The vista will take on the appearance of an imminent, ominous storm.

Along with a UV or Skylight Filter, a polarizing filter should be a part of everyone's gear bag. It can turn a run-of-the-mill image into a stunning, creative photo by increasing color saturation.

Note: Circular polarizers are specifically designed for use with auto-focus SLR cameras (They will also work on manual systems and video cameras without problems)

This filter eliminates ultraviolet rays to remove haze from outdoor shots as well as polarizing the light to remove reflections, and increase color saturation, without affecting the overall color balance

    Canon 2188B001 reviews

    58mm Circular Polarizing Filter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pro Shots I take landscape photographs and I have so often looked at calendars, postcards and large framed photos and wondered how the photographer got the images to look so good. My images colours just werent as vivid. I thought they must be doing something in photoshop until it was suggested I try a polarizing filter. So I have been using it for a week and I am SO HAPPY. My images finally have the pro look. If you want to have awesome looking images with vivid colour its well worth the money to get a polorizing filter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Purchase! I am excited to use the filter to shoot water, the sky, through windows, etc. I noticed the first time I rented a circular polarizing filter that the skin tones, sky, reflections were so vibrant and clear. From then on, I knew I wanted to buy the filter.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful but pricey This small polarizing filter delivers the same benefits as its larger cousins -- deeper skies, enhanced primary colors and when necessary, a reduction in reflections. It does so with a drawback: price. Why does Canon prices this 58mm polarizer so high? Only Canon knows, but its other polarizing filters are high in price, too. If the price were more reasonable, you'd get more value for your money and I'd give it 5 stars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from everything I expected great for clouds and landscapes. Also enhances sunrays. Makes colors more vivid and true to life. When I first tried to mount it, I was unsuccessful but a B&H rep walked me through and it was really my fault that I couldn't mount it at first.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Pictures Those picture perfect photos you see with beautiful skylines are NO ACCIDENT. The person behind the lens almost certainly had a filter to cut through the haze and add some contrast. The 58mm Canon filter should be in everyones camera bag and on a sunny day it should stay on all the time. This filter is high quality - the fit and finish is excellent. An easy way to get great looking outdoor photos!
