About B + W 58 Circular Polarizer

Kaesemann filters are constructed from select polarizing foils and the finest optical class.
• They were designed for apochromatic and fast telephoto lenses, but all lenses benifit from their quality.
• Kaesemann polarizers are edge sealed and are ideal for extreme climate conditions.

• Polarizer filters evenly increase color saturation of all colors (except black and white), creating deep, rich scenics.
• They add contrast for dramatic skies and ariel shots.
• Polarizers also eliminate glare from highly reflected surfaces like glass and water.
• Polarizers are two part lenses that rotate, allowing you to select the degree of additional saturation, contrast and glare reduction desired.
•They come in two varieties.
• Circular-for all types of cameras (required for beam splitting metering systems commonly found in auto-focus SLR's and in most current TTL Slr's; check your camera's manual).
• Linear-for rangefinders and older SLR metering systems.

My lenses deserve the best

This is my 6th B+W filters. I have a B+w polarizing filter on my 50mm macro and it works great. I had another brand filter on my 100mm canon macro lens. And it was weak, bad color rendition, loss of sharpness. Just bad, so I never used it. The 100mm is my favorite lens for shooting artwork. So why was I compromising. I got the B+W - Wow.

This is my 6th B+W filters. I have a B+w polarizing filter on my 50mm macro and it works great. I had another brand filter on my 100mm canon macro lens. And it was weak, bad color rendition, loss of sharpness. Just bad, so I never used it. The 100mm is my favorite lens for shooting artwork. So why was I compromising. I got the B+W - Wow. Best photos to date. The blacks are richer and the colors are true. Hey, no one wants to spend $100 or more on a filter when you already have one, but this one paid for itself the same day. Don't waste your money on inferior brands. Tip for art photographers: Using polarizing filters on the lights and the lens, back off the lens filter a 1/4 to 1/2 turn, so you allow a little glare on the artwork. It gives a better feel of the surface, texture, shine, dimension. Otherwise it can get very flat.

B+W KSM Polarizers

By

from Chicago, IL

I use and sell old camera equipment and I've tried several dozen polarizing filters and B+W KSMs are some of the best. Don't waste time with cheap filters they will destroy your work.
