Tiffen 46mm Circular Polarizer Filter

Polarising Filters



Polarising Filters
 
Polarizers provide color and contrast enhancement. Reflected light often shows up as whitish glare that washes out color in an image. A Polarizer corrects this problem producing deep, dramatically blue skies. It also removes glare from non-metallic surfaces, such as windows and water. Color saturation in general, especially outdoors, can be improved significantly.
 
Polariser/Circular Polarizer
  • Essential general-use outdoor color filter
  • Produces deeper skies and minimizes reflections in black and white and color photography
  • Combine a Polarizer with a Red 25 for incredibly dramatic black and white landscapes
  • Can be rotated to achieve desired effect
  • Use the Tiffen Polariser with the enhancing filter for more dramatic effects
  • Available for Wide Angle lenses
 
A Circular Polariser has the same effect as a Polariser and is used on cameras with beam splitting metering systems commonly found on auto focus SLR's (for most 35mm auto-focus cameras see your camera manual).
 
Area of sky most effectively polarized with a Circular Polariser:
Point your index finger at the sun. With your thumb extended at a right angle (90?), rotate it around the axis of the index finger. It will point out the band of deepest blue from horizon to horizon.
 
Warm Polariser
  • Combines the benefits of the Linear Polariser with the warming effect of the 812? Color Warming filter making it ideal for portraits and scenics
