Heliopan SH-PMC Multi Coated Linear Polarising Filter. The Linear Polariser is not suitable for use with Digital or AF cameras, use a Circular Polariser instead.
Polarizing Filters reduce reflections and glare, they are a neutral color and can be used for color or black and white imaging. As the light coming from the sun is not polarized parts of the light become partially polarized due to the scattering of particles in the atmosphere. This scattering reduces the transparency of the air and creates haze in the distance and the blue in the sky on a sunny day. Polarization also controls in the reflections of light on the original color of the surface. The Heliopan Polarizer improves the color of the sky, (in distant pictures, mountain scenes, etc.) it reduces the bluish cast in landscapes and increases the blue color of the sky. The effect is strongest at a 90? angle to the sun. In addition polarizers enhance the color saturation of the scene by suppressing the reflections on the surface, undesired reflections are largely eliminated. While increasing color saturation with software can also improve the color saturation the faded parts of the leaves in the illustration above will increase as well. This procedure will not replace the need for a polarizer.
For brilliant color reproduction, highest contrast and sharpness Heliopan filters are THE choice for the professional photographer. When coupled with the fact that Heliopan filters are manufactured from SCHOTT glass (the same stuff used to make ZEISS optics), it is clear that the only thing that should stand between your lens and your subject is a Heliopan filter.
Made in Germany, all Heliopan screw-in filters come in high quality anodised brass mounts which virtually eliminate binding.

Both linear and circular polarisers are available from Lee Filters in both a rotating 105mm diameter ‘screw in’ version and a 100x100mm square version. The 100mm square polarisers are to be used in the filter holder in a standard 2mm resin filter slot; and the entire holder is then rotated to achieve the correct polarisation state.This is recommended for studio use or for when only the polariser and, possibly, standard filters are to be used.
