Haida 100mm Series PROII Multicoated 86mm Circular Polarizer for use with 4x4 Haida Holder
The Haida PROII Multi-coating Circular Polarizing filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. The light from the sun naturally becomes partially polarized due to reflecting off electrons in air molecules, causing the light to scatter into what appears as haze.
A polarizing filters arranges, and filters, this directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of this light. This results in a noticeable reduction of glare and reflections form non-metallic surfaces and an increase in the saturation of skies and foliage.
A Circular Polarizer only differs from a linear polarizer in that it contains a quarter wave plane in addition to the linear polarizing filter. The addition of this quarter wave plane is to circularly polarize the linearly polarized light for the use of auto focus and exposure functions. Due to how the light is broken down and filtered with a linear polarizer, auto focus and exposure accuracy become skewed during us. When the light becomes circularly polarized, it permits the use of these functions.
Haida PROII MC C-POL filters are constructed from high quality Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. They feature an aluminum filter ring for durability. This filter is both an anti-reflective coating as well as a protective surface. It helps to increase light transmission by reducing reflections, scattered light and ghosting. Additionally, it offers greater protection to the filter substrate and stays cleaner long than uncoated filters.
