About Adorama 40.5 Circular Polarizer

Polarizer filters give you several key creative features.

They evenly increase color saturation of all colors (except black and white), creating deep, rich scenics.

They add contrast for dramatic skies and ariel shots.

They eliminate the whitish 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.

Tiffen polarizers are offered in standard and warm versions. Warm polarizers add Tiffen's exclusive 812 warming filter, giving portraits and scenics a warm and muted feel while retaining rich coloration.

Polarizes come in two types:

Circular -- for all types of cameras: required for beam splitting metering systems commonly found in auto-focus SLR's and in most curretn TTL Slr's.

Linear -- for older metering systems.

Tiffen polarizers are available in the follow variations:

Standard Linear.

Standard Circular.

Warm Circular -- polarizer plus 812 warming filter.

Wide Angle Circular -- a thin filter designed to avoid vignetting at the edges from larger wide angle lenses.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Is this threaded? What is the country of origin? Is this similar to the Tiffin brand?
MICHELLE Z  I think it is a Tiffen filter. It has a very small thread, but I tend too leave it on the lens so then it is not a problem to take on and off. I notice that sometimes if I use it on a really sunny day, at full polarization, the blue sky is much darker and the transition can be a little too pronounced. For the price I am very satisfied.
Shopper  are these ffilters functional under water, or do they leak, I have used polarizers before on my fe and loved them for great picture clarity , I was hoping for the same result underwater?
EMBRY K  This filter will leak under water, and this will prevent it from functioning as a polarizing filter. Polarizing filters are made by etching very fine lines closely spaced on two disks of glass. when properly aligned, they can block light you don't want coming into your camera. Under water, these lines will fill with water, and light passing through the filter will not "see" the etchings in the filter.
