NiSi CPL Filters help reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. A polarising filter arranges, and filters, this directionally polarised light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of this light.
What is a CPL filter?
A CPL filter is a Circular Polarising Lens filter. It is one of the most useful filters for photographers, as it can help reduce reflections and glares, increase colour saturation, and make skies appear darker and richer.
What does a CPL filter do?
There are many benefits to using a CPL filter, including: reduced reflections and glare, increased colour saturation, darker and richer skies and reduced haze in landscapes.
How does a CPL filter work?
Polarised light is created when sunlight reflects off of a surface like water or glass. This reflection creates glare and can cause washed-out colours in your photos. A CPL filter blocks out polarised light, reducing glare and increasing colour saturation.
Does a CPL filter affect my exposure?
Simply, yes. A CPL polarising filter will influence the exposure usually by 1-1.5 stops – that is, the amount of light entering your lens — controlling the amount of light penetrating to reduce glare and reflections on surfaces like water.
