Light rays which are reflected become polarized. Polarizing filters are used
to select which light rays enter your camera lens. They can remove unwanted
reflections from non-metallic surfaces such as water or glass and also saturate
colors providing better contrast. The effect can be seen through the viewfinder
and changed by rotating the filter. The filter factor varies according to how
the filter is rotated and its orientation to the sun.
- This filter eliminates ultraviolet rays from outdoor shots as well as polarizing the
light to remove reflections, and increase color saturation, without affecting
the overall color balancce.
- Can dramatically enhance a blue sky and make the clouds more prominent.
- Used best at right angle to the sun.
- Effective with cameras that use beam splitters in the path of the TTL light meter and with AF cameras.
