Best Polarizing Filter

Estimated reading time: 7 minutes

Polarizers are a must-have filter when capturing external property shots. The best polarizing filter for your camera will help reduce glare. This article contains several polarizing filters to enrich the colors and improve the contrast.

Nikon 77mm 

Nikon 77mm 

The Nikon 77mm is a multi-coated premium filter that reduces surface reflections and glare, producing clearer, higher contrast images.

Similar to the Hoya 58mm HD, this filter allows you to control the saturation of the blue sky to increase the clarity of cloud formation when shooting in bright environments. Like the Nikon 2236 58mm, the filter ring has a slim design that reduces vignetting when used with a wide-angle lens. This filter removes UV rays and enhances color saturation without affecting the overall color balance when shooting outdoors. This filter effectively reduces reflections, saturates colors and improves contrast when shooting non-metallic surfaces such as water and glass. However, it is difficult to use with the lens hood attached because the lens hood will not move when you try to adjust the filter.

Pros

Its slim design makes it suitable for use with wide-angle lenses that minimize vignetting. Gradually removes UV rays and increases saturation without changing the overall color balance

Cons

It cannot be used with the lens hood attached. It gets stuck on the go to adjust the filters for better results. Like the Nikon 2236 58mm, it is only compatible with Nikon camera lenses

Hoya 58mm HD

Hoya 58mm HD

If you’re looking for a robust filter, the Hoya 58mm HD is for you. This filter has a chemically strengthened optical glass structure that is four times stronger than other standard filters. Uses a lightweight aluminum alloy filter ring that eliminates vignetting when used in combination with an ultra-wide-angle lens. Unlike the Marumi 77mm DHG, it comes with a plastic filter carrying case, which makes it easy to store and carry, eliminating unwanted bluish tints of sunlight without affecting the overall color balance. It uses an 8-layer multi-coating to prevent ghosting and reflections and promote clearer and clearer images. In addition, the multi-coating makes the filter resistant to dirt and oil repellents, making it easy to remove dirt and fingerprints. However, aluminum alloy filter rings are less durable.

Pros

The plastic carry bag makes it easy to store and transport. Antifouling, oil repellent, oil repellent

Cons

Aluminum alloy filter rings are less durable than brass filter rings with B + W 52mm circular polarizer . Does not effectively reduce reflections like the multi-coated Marumi 77mm DHG

Marumi 77mm DHG 

Marumi 77mm DHG 

Like the Nikon 77mm, the thin filter ring of this polarizing filter minimizes the possibility of vignetting when used with a wide-angle lens and makes it easy to install and remove the lens. The outer edge of the glass substrate turns black and is less than 0.6. % Surface reflection provides to further reduce flare and ghosting. However, it does not contain high light transmission glass, so you need to increase the exposure to make up for the lost light.

Pros

Multiple light-shielding ribs ensure uniform light transmission. Teflon coating makes it easy to install and remove

Cons

It is not suitable for use in low light conditions due to the lack of high light transmission glass. When used with the lens hood attached, it may be difficult to turn the front screw.

B+W 77mm Circular Polarizer

B+W 77mm Circular Polarizer

This B + W 77 mm circular polarizer is a high quality circular polarizing filter for all cameras with a beam splitter on the exposure meter and autofocus lens. This polarizing filter enhances and reduces saturation and distortion.

The neutral gray tint and the quality of the parallel-parallel polarizers provide optimum image quality. High quality optical glass also guarantees excellent image quality. The filter factor depends on how the filter is placed in the sun. There are about two stops to compensate for the exposure. To combat flares and ghosting, this polarizing filter uses a unique scratch resistant, water repellent and antifouling coating. Image contrast and sharpness are reduced by dirt, gray fingerprints, watermarks, and squats, leading to glare and soft focus effects from light sources. For this reason, a clean attachment lens and a clean filter surface are prerequisites for demanding photographers. Rotatable circular polarizing filters are stiff and require more effort.

Pros 

Use a brass ring to get a higher quality image. The has the best polishing techniques available. This polarizer has no vignetting on the sides, unlike the Tiffen 52mm linear polarizer, which has large vignetting on the sides.

Cons

Some distortion is seen This polarizing filter is more difficult to rotate and screw than the B + W 46mm Kaesemann with a smooth metal ring that is easy to screw in.

B+W 46mm Kaesemann

B+W 46mm Kaesemann

This B + W 46mm Kaesemann polarizing filter is color-neutral and efficient, and is secured between planar parallel glass and optical glass by a special bonding process that is excellent for delamination in moist areas. ..

Then finish the resulting sandwich to get a surface that is exactly parallel to the plane. This polarizing filter is considered by many real estate photographers to be the best polarizer on the market. The retaining ring will not come off even if you remove the overtightened filter or lens hood. The only drawback is that vignetting can be seen in all four corners of the 12mm.

Pros 

Strong build quality with excellent multi-layer coating that simplifies filter maintenance, unlike Amazon Basic, which has low build quality. Unlike B + W HTC Kaesemann, which has side distortions, the glass is optically transparent. No distortion

Cons

The polarization effect is relatively weak and appears to be effective in a very limited area. Thick and heavy, a little difficult to clean

B+W 52mm Circular Polarizer

B+W 52mm Circular Polarizer

This B + W 52 mm circular polarizer reduces reflections and glare by filtering the light propagating from the non-metallic surface into the polarization process. This polarizing filter has multiple coatings that are resistant to reflections.

Therefore, it helps to increase light transmission by reducing reflections, diffusing light, and creating ghost images. Filter boards are safer and cleaner for longer periods of time than uncoated filters. To improve optical transparency and color accuracy, this polarizing filter is made of high quality shot glass. It also features a brass filtering for robustness and trouble-free operation. However, adjusting the polarizer with the lens pole and lens cap is not easy.

The polarizer is not easy to adjust. At a width of 11 mm, there is vignetting, unlike the B + W 77mm circular policer, which has no vignetting.
