Collection: CIRCULAR POLARIZING FILTERS
NiSi Circular Polarizing Filters help reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. A circular polarizing filter (CPL) arranges and filters this directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light allowing for the absorption of much of this light.
What is a CPL filter?
A CPL filter is a Circular Polarizing Lens filter. It is one of the most useful filters for photographers, as it can help reduce reflections and glares, increase color saturation, and make skies appear darker and richer.
What does a CPL filter do?
There are many benefits to using a CPL filter, including: reduced reflections and glare, increased color saturation, darker and richer skies and reduced haze in landscapes.
How does a CPL filter work?
Polarized light is created when sunlight reflects off of a surface like water or glass. This reflection creates glare and can cause washed-out colors in your photos. A CPL filter blocks out polarized light, reducing glare and increasing color saturation.
Does a CPL filter affect my exposure?
Simply, yes. A CPL polarizing filter will influence the exposure usually by 1-1.5 stops – that is, the amount of light entering your lens — controlling the amount of light penetrating to reduce glare and reflections on surfaces like water. Our True Color CPL removes the warm tone seen with other brands of CPL filters and provides a closer true color representation of the scene
