Are polarized camera lenses worth it?

A polarizing filter makes a huge difference in such situations, not only significantly cutting down on those reflections, but also increasing the overall saturation and contrast of the image. In short, it is impossible to simulate the effect of a polarizing filter using software!

How many stops do you lose with a polarizer?

Remember, a polarizer filter will effectively reduce your lens aperture by up to 2 f:stops.

Will a 52mm filter fit a 55mm lens?

The original lens cap can not be used with 52mm filters but can be used with the 55mm filters. The adaptor and filter can stay on the camera and the original lens cap can be used.

Should you use a polarizing filter for sunsets?

Use of a polarization filter for sunsets is also not necessary. It won’t do any harm, so leaving the filter on you lens is possible. But be aware of bright sunlight. It can produce extra flares because of the extra glass in front of your lens.

Can I use polarizing filter all the time?

A polarizing filter is not something you want to leave on your lenses at all times though since it reduces light transmission and it can potentially make the sky look unevenly gradient when using wide-angle lenses.

Do polarizing filters reduce light?

While they do reduce the amount of light coming into your camera by about 1½ stops, they will also reduce unwanted reflections in glasses, and can reduce the shine on people’s skin, giving them an even illumination.

Does polarizing filter affect exposure?

While polarizing filters are clearly very useful, their disadvantages are that: They can make the exposure require 2-3 stops (4-8X) more light than normal. They are one of the most expensive types of filters. They require the camera to be pointed at a right angle to the sun for maximal effect.

Is a bigger lens diameter better?

From a pure optics perspective, lens diameter is crucial. Larger diameter accounts for larger light “intake”, and with more light ending up on the sensor, you can make the same image quality with shorter exposure.
