The B+W Circular Polarizer Slim is a highly efficient standard circular polarizing filter for all cameras with beam splitters in the light paths of their TTL exposure meter and with autofocus lenses. Circular polarization has the same pictorial effect as linear polarization, but allows for proper exposure metering and/or autofocus distance settings. The B&W Slim filters are for wide-angle lenses and are 3mm thick.

Light rays which are reflected become polarized. Polarizing filters are used to select which light rays enter your camera lens. They can remove unwanted reflections from non-metallic surfaces such as water or glass and also saturate colors providing better contrast. The effect can be seen through the viewfinder and changed by rotating the filter. The filter factor varies according to how the filter is rotated and its orientation to the sun.

The B+W Circular Polarizer Slim Filter is specially designed to be used with auto-exposure and auto-focus SLR and video cameras. It does not influence the metering systems of these cameras.

Because reflections in atmospheric haze are reduced, circular polarizer filters can cut through haze to make outdoor pictures sharper. The B+W Circular Polarizer Slim Filter causes colors become rich and very saturated. Cutting the reflection coming off of foliage will remarkably improve landscape photography.

The B+W Circular Polarizer Slim Filter also doubles as a neutral density filter. There is a light loss of up to 2 stops when using the B+W Circular Polarizer Filter. This is good news for those really bright days when you want a long exposure, but bad news if you need a faster shutter speed or aperture.
