Singh-Ray RT-26 overview

  • 1Description

Blending a warming effect with the versatility of a polarizer, the 77mm Thin LB Warming Circular Polarizer Filter from Singh-Ray is a unique filter featuring a "Lighter, Brighter" design that affords 0.6 stops more brightness than other circular polarizer filters. At its core, this 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. The warming effect then complements the increase in clarity and saturation by providing an even, warm cast to subjects.

This filter is constructed from optical glass for clarity and features a lightweight, durable aluminum alloy filter ring. This thin-style ring measures 4.8mm thick and lacks front threads in order to reduce the likelihood of vignetting on wide-angle lenses.

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.
"Lighter, Brighter" design enables shorter shutter speeds or smaller apertures to be used compared to other circular polarizer filters.
Warming effect adds a red/yellowish tone to imagery in order to minimize overwhelming cool tones and add a brighter appearance.
Lightweight, durable aluminum alloy filter ring measures 4.8mm-thick.
Thin filter ring helps to prevent vignetting when used on wide-angle lenses.
Constructed from optical glass to provide high image quality and clarity.
Leatherette pouch with microfiber interior for storage and transport

    Singh-Ray RT-26 reviews

    77mm Thin LB Warming Circular Polarizer Filter is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from How did I ever live without this piece! A friend once said, 'put a low quality filter on a high quality lens and you will get mediocre results'. So when in came time to buy filters, I went right to Singh-Ray. As a portrait & nature photographer, I began using it in the natural world with exceptional results! Then tried it for a portrait shoot with with a fair-skinned caucasian family. This really blew me away! The results were outstanding, magazine quality, very natural tones & depth. The filter fits onto the lens smoothly and the movable ring glides easily to adjust warming tonality. I highly recommend this LB warming circular polarizer!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So great I can't live without it! I recently lost one of these to the rocky coastline of Maine as a gust of wind knocked over my tripod. Luckily this was the only item to be damaged. However, as a landscape photographer, I found I could not go another day without this filter so, despite the high price tag, I bought another for my 28mm Zeiss. I love this filter! Your lens is only as good as its cheapest element, and I am confident to say I would keep this on my lens indefinitely! Colors are GREAT! Glass and ring are of excellent construction! Highly recommended! PS Try this bad boy on a sunrise/sunset!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have filter This is a great filter that has to be in your bag. I like the warm added by the warming component of the filter. Although it is a thin mount, beware that it will still vignette at 19mm or less on my Nikon 16-35mm f4.0 lens. For the most part this is not an issue since shots involving the sky shouldn't be polarized anyway at these extreme wide angle settings but it is an issue for foliage shots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Singh-Ray LB warming Polarizer Best polarizer I have used. Allows much more light to the sensor than most polarizers allowing for better use in low light situations.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best PLC I have ever used. So far. I use this filter most of the time for daylight landscape and even for outdoor portraiture. I love it for the extra light it allows to come in, and for the warmish tone it conveys. The thin mount is quite effective on a EF-S 10-22mm (@10mm on a cropped body) and on a EF 17-40mm f/4L (@17mm on a ff body) as well. The downside is: it's a bit expensive, and you can't use your regular lens cap to protect it (buy a push-on lens cap).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great results! I needed a new polarizer filter and decided to take the plunge and purchase one with a warming effect. So glad I did. This beauty allows more light in and is perfect to soften those harsh, bright light conditions. My fall/autumn shots greatly improved in appearance.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thin and Warm! First off, I own the Singh-Ray Vari-N-Trio. It's a great filter but it's extremely expensive and the vignetting is so strong that you need to zoom out to 35mm so that you don't get black corners. I thought I could keep it on my lens the whole time and use it on the minimum density when not doing long exposures, but even then it still cuts of 4 stops of light and as I couldn't use the filter at 24mm. So, needless to say I wanted a thin polarizer that didn't cut out too much light and that I could use at 24mm wihtout strong vignetting. Why didn't I buy the LB Color Combo? Two reasons. Price and light. 400$ for the thin mount is a lot of money. 240$ is still pricey but is much more reasonable. I like the touch that the color intensifier adds, but you can get a similiar effect in photoshop. The warming effect on this polarizer is neet and counters the cool look that some polarizers have. Also, Having a polarizer than only cut out 1 1/3 stops of light is great (the Color Combo cuts out 2 stops)! That way you can either keep the polarizer on when the light gets low or you can still keep the filter on when you need a fast shutter speed (for example, bird in flight) For handheld shots this filter is a must. These filters are very well built as they are all made by hand. You get what you pay for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality Very good filter, my only concern is not able to rotate the filter easily since it is slim ones
