Best reviews of Nikon 77mm Wide Circular Polarizer II Filter
- Multi-coated for higher quality images
- Thin style filter for use with wide angle lenses
Light rays which are reflected by any surface become polarized and Polarizing filters are used to select which light rays enter your camera lens. They allow you to remove unwanted reflections from non-metallic surfaces such as water, glass etc. They also enable colors to become more saturated and appear clearer, with better contrast. This effect is often used to increase the contrast and saturation in blue skies and white clouds. Polarizers do not affect the overall color balance of a shot. It is important that you choose the correct version of polarizer for your camera. Many of today’s cameras use semi-silvered mirrors or prisms to split the light entering the viewfinder in order to calculate exposure and focusing distance. Polarizing filters can sometimes interact with these items to give unpredictable exposure or focusing. So we recommend that you choose a circular polarizer unless you have a manual focus camera which has no beam splitter. If you will be using your Polarizing filter on a lens which has a focal length of 28mm or wider (on a 35mm camera), we recommend that you use a Wide Circular Polarizer to avoid a possible vignette effect.
Wide filters are designed specifically for wide angle lenses, when using a Wide filter the standard lens cap that comes with your lens may not fit on the front of the filter.
