We stock standard, consumer grade Circular Polarizing filters but for those wanting the absolute best quality we stock Heliopan filters. They are made from the highest quality Schott glass and ground, polished and coated to the highest standards of the German optical industry, and are treated with Heliopan’s 16 layer multi-coating to assure the lowest possible light loss and reflection. They are made of black anodized brass stock.
We call this one Standard to differentiate it from the Slim Line that we also carry. Unlike the slim version, this filter will vignette if used with wide angle lenses. It also has the threaded outer ring that everyone is use to, which allows you to stack filters and…wait a minute…use a lens cap?
Please note: These are rather expensive and delicate filters. If taken into harsh conditions, like blowing sand, they will scratch and pit and we will charge you for replacement when the filter returns. We understand a small hairline scratch may occur and don’t consider that your fault, but a badly scratched filter is useless and we will charge for replacement.
