The Manfrotto Essential Circular Polarising filter 52mm improves the overall image quality in a couple of ways. Firstly it increases colour contrast and saturation, for instance increases the contrast of blue skies. Secondly, it reduces reflections that are often seen when photographing water, glass and similar reflective surfaces. Manfrotto Essential Circular Polarising filter ensures uniform light distribution; therefore maintain the sharpness and colour balance in images. The Essential CPL filter is water repellent, includes 2 layers of coating and allows 68% light transmission.
Each Manfrotto filter has been developed with the highest level of precision. The elaborate multi-coating process effectively minimizes reflections and maximizes the light transmission, hence delivering remarkable optical quality. The more anti-reflective the filter the higher the number of layers of coating. Additionally, as a result of the multi-coated layers, Manfrotto filters ensure a superior level of protection against dust, moisture and scratches.
