Bower FP58CC overview

  • 1Description

The Bower 58mm Digital HD 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.

This filter is constructed from optical glass and features an aluminum filter ring to provide increased rigidity and durability.

Helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface.
Polarizing filters arrange, and filter, directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of the light.
Clears up haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
Strongest effect when used at a 90° from the sun.

    Bower FP58CC reviews

    58mm Digital HD Circular Polarizer Filter is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well made, but inconsistent results I used this on a canon G16 with filter adapter on a trip to Belize. I don't have a ton of experience with polarizing filters, but I thought all of the sun, windows, sunglasses, and water would give it a good test. The good: It fits well and felt solid. The tightening ring is independent of the filter material so you can rotate it after screwing it on. It's well made, it didn't scratch after some repeated abuse and seemed to help in lots of situations. Image quality was clear The not so good: In general there was a polarizing effect, but there were inconsistent results with windows and water: I noticed times when the effect was negligible, and some where it helped. It's possible I'm asking too much of a filter at this price/specs, and it might excel in other applications, but I was hoping for more.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't really make much of a difference The filter didn't make much of a difference on my two canon lenses (18-55mm & 55-250mm). Both my lenses were able to adjust to light with or without the filter. When I aimed it towards object projecting light (globe lights, lightbulbs, etc.) it had an annoying little glare that wouldn't go away. It's pretty good for outdoor use, but other than that, it's not some life changing accessory you really NEED.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great one for this price range CPL Repeating another customer's review, with some more details: Yes, it does protect your lens' front glass (not whole lens :) )from scratches, dust, fingerprints slight hits (from cracking and breaking) - believe me, if lens gets real hit, lens internals (focusing, aperture, zooming, VR motors and gears) will get real damage as well as internal glasses might be shifted etc. so, even if you have most expensive protective UV filter attached or even bulletproof glass, this will not save your lens... Yes, it does cut off polarised light filtering and for it's price it is more than satisfactory. you always have choice for Zeiss and other high grade CPL filters and just has 1-1.5 stop EV reduction. Yes, it does add distortions to lens optical characteristics and might degrade it, BUT, more or less those distortions are applied even by most expensive filter attachments, any lens is produced by manufacturer as is and it's characteristics are calculated without any add-ons. Anyway, with advanced or flagship cameras, you still have to worry about other kinds of distortions, moire caused by excessive MP of sensors, cross pixel noises, active sensing area to pixel size (pixel fill ratio) issues, gap or gapless micro lenses on sensors, vibrations at camera lens mount point, moving elements inside lens etc... list might be endless and definitely you have to do post-processing of your images and you can correct slight distortions added by this UV filter. So, except highest grade, topmost filters of any specific kind (UV, CPL, ND, etc.), which have significant optical performance, you are getting great attachment for your lens, especially for its price.
