The Marumi FIT+SLIM Circular Polarizer is especially well-suited to whom coating is not mandatory.
- Both hue reproducibility and high saturation color reproducibility are achievable simultaneously.
- While color neutrality is given priority, the transmittance rate remains approx 30%. (400-700nm average)
- Realized a thin aluminum frame to avoid vignetting even with a wide-angle lens
- Lightweight and rotating mount structure
- Made in Japan, indurated lamination technology by decades of technical succession.
What are the benefits of using a polarizing filter?
Why is polarizing filter recognized among most photographers as an essential must-have filter? Does Photoshop or other equivalent editing tool work instead of polarizer?
A polarizing filter allows you to;
- control reflections from non-metallic objects; the surface of water, window, or glossy coating/painting.
- prevent and reduce glare, still however, allow plenty of light through. It also makes subjects underwater transparent.
- Enhance color saturation and contrast, especially under a scene of deep blue sky, vivid white clouds, spring greenery, or autumn color of leaves.
Have you ever experienced, when taking landscape photography, ending up with a little different color from the actual landscape you have seen? The sky must have been more vivid and bluish in your eyes.
A polarizing filter can properly contrast the crystal blue sky and the white clouds.
Many photographers predominantly carry a polarizing filter, particularly for landscape photography next step after Lens Protector/UV filter in terms of protection, for some reason.
The effects of polarizers cannot be easily mimicked with digital editing. Carrying a polarizer makes your image more vivid and clear, turning the actual landscape you've seen into your picture.
The two images below obviously show the difference of impact with/without polarizing effect in contrast.
Photographers should keep in mind that a polarising filter will reduce a certain amount of light passing through the camera body in exchange for giving a polarizing effect. Therefore, it is better not to use a polarizer under poor light conditions. It is also better to consider attaching a High Transmittance Circular Polarizer (HTC) that is equivalent close to one F-stop while other conventional polarizers are equivalent to 1.5 stops.
In post-production, the Polarizing effect cannot be reproduced because they change the light entering your lens Those are the reason why the Polarizing filter is a must-have filter.
