TheCokin P Series Polacolor Blue Circular Polarizer Filteris designed to be used in a Cokin P Series Filter Holder. It is uniform in color and can be used to add a blue, monochrome tint over an entire image while helping to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. That effect can be obtained when this filter is used on a film camera system or on a digital camera system, while the respective film type or white balance setting that corresponds to the primary light source is selected.


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 filter 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 from non-metallic surfaces.


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 use. When the light becomes circularly polarized, it permits the use of these functions.

Helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface.



Polarizing filters arrange, and filter, directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of the light.



Strongest effect when used at a 90 angle from the sun.



Circular polarizers are ideal for use with digital cameras and autofocus lenses where a linear polarizer will often disrupt auto exposure and focus features.



Non-coated.



2.5x filter factor reduces exposure by 1.3 stops.



Constructed from optical glass.
