Bower FP82CC overview

  • 1Description

The Bower 82mm 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 FP82CC reviews

    82mm Digital HD Circular Polarizer Filter is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from COULD NOT BELIEVE WHAT I GOT FOR CHEAP! I use this for scenic photography. I love it! 1. When I unboxed it and tried to screw the filter onto my lens, I noticed a little resistance. During manufacture, the black paint was misapplied leaving a dusty layer. I took some small alcohol prep pads and cleaned out the threads. Turned several prep pads black. Problem solved, it screws on normally and looks normal. 2. There was a smear of clear grease or oil on the filter itself. Used a couple alcohol pads to clean up and a lens cloth to dry. problem solved again. So now it works perfectly. Check out the pictures I took rotating the filter so that one is unpolarized and the other is polarized. They are a little out of focus but the effect is evident. I can't see any problem except for a little vignetting that is the fault of my lens (Sigma 70mm f2.8 macro). So I had to spend 5 minutes cleaning it up, I still got a great deal! Remember, you get the best polarization when you point your camera 90 degrees away from the axis of the sun. Make an L with your pointing finger and your thumb. Point your pointing finger at the sun and wherever your thumb points to is the where the best polarization is possible. Notice the angle of the sun in the pictures I included.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy To Repurpose This was purchased with the strict intention to optimize my Genustech Variable Netural Density filter.To isolate the rotating element, I used a spanning wrench ($10 on @) to line up the groves on the internal ring, and unscrewed the ring. After that, you can easily remove the polarizing glass!Now, you can attach a variable nutral density filter to the housing of this polarizing filter to spin your ND filter to preserve skin reflections and glare. Keep the polarizing glass and mark the outside of the housing to remember different polarizing strengths of the ND filter. You need to hold the polarizing glass infront of your ND filter, and rotate your new spinning element to observe the amout of polarizing you neutral density filter is doing, because after all neutral density filters are just two stacked circular polarizing filters. This is an excellent purchase if you shoot video, and are concerned about skin tones while using a variable neural density filter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cutting Back On Light Helps stop-down on bright days eliminating glare.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Vignetting at short focal length Bought it for a Canon 16 - 35 mm 1:2.8 L II USM lens to replace a broken Tiffen. Threads were rough and hard to disengage, but bigger issue was vignetting at 16mm. Attached is an example. Shot at F/5.6 at 1/1000 (very windy)

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for the price It gets the job done, but it's not as smooth turning it as I've experienced with other filters. But you can't really beat the price. Overall, I'd say it's a good value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inexpensive but a serious contender! Don't be fooled by its inexpensive amount. This filter really accomplishes what it suppose to.
