Singh-Ray 82mm LB Neutral Circular Polarizer Filter
Key Features
  • Minimize Reflections and Glare
  • Reduces Haze and Blue Cast in Landscapes
  • Enhances Color and Tonal Saturation
  • Lighter, Brighter Optical Density
The Singh-Ray 82mm LB Neutral Circular Polarizer 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. A circular polarizer differs from a linear polarizer in that it supports full use of a camera's autofocus and auto exposure functions.

Singh-Ray LB Neutral Overview

The Singh-Ray 82mm LB Neutral Circular Polarizer 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. A circular polarizer differs from a linear polarizer in that it supports full use of a camera's autofocus and auto exposure functions.

The LB designation of this filter stands for "Lighter, Brighter", which refers to the lower optical density of the filter that enables shorter shutter speeds or smaller f/stops to be used when the filter is in place. The brighter design of the filter also enables a brighter viewfinder image to aid in composition as well as improves auto exposure and focusing performance.

Singh-Ray ring-mounted filters are constructed from highly polished proprietary glass to provide notable image quality and clarity. The standard ring mount design measures 8.5mm-thick and features front filter threads for stacking of additional filters.

I used this polarizer for fall colors, rivers, waterfalls, and lakes. It works great for cutting the glare. I'm very pleased with it. It is built well and has been a great investment.

question

I want to use the filter on a 16-35mm f2.8L lens. Will the edge of the filter show up in images? Is it designed for use on wide angle lenses?
Asked by: Jeffrey
I have a UV filter on my lens and don't see and edge at 16mm. If you stack filters (ie UV with a variable ND filter) you will see the edges at 16mm.
