Polarizer. (polarising filter)

EN: Polarizer. (polarising filter)


A filter for eliminating glare and reflections which attached to the front of your lens (normally just SLR’s). Just like your polarized sunglasses it will get rid of glare, the polarizer filter does the same for your digicam. There are 2 types of polarising filter, linear and circular. Linear is for film only, it screws up most auto focus systems on digicams. Therefore be sure you use a circular polarizer filter. It can also be used to darken skies and increase the saturation of colours.
