    Schneider 102mm Top (Linear) Polarizer
    Linear polarizers are used with most manual focus SLR and rangefinder cameras to increase color saturation and reduce reflections. The neutral gray color and plane parallel polarizer material guarantee optimal image results. High-quality optical glass ensures excellent pictorial quality. The filter factor varies according to how the filter is positioned in relation to the sun. Filter factor is between 2.3 and 2.8.

    With B+W polarizing filters, reflections on glass, lacquer, on nearly all plastic materials and other electrically non-conducting surfaces can often be reducedor even eliminated. B+W Polarizing Filters provide you the control over how much reflection you wish to remain because the light reflected at an angle of about 40 to 70 by these surfaces is strongly polarized. Its transmission can be reduced, blocked or even enhanced (!) in relation to the remaining unpolarized light, depending on the rotation of the filter. Thus a clear view is made possible through plates of glass, of goldfish below the surface of the water, or of writing or pictures behind a glossy layer of lacquer.

    Every object outdoors reflects light from the sky more or less diffusely and largely polarized, some objects, such as green plants and red roof tiles are covered by a bluish-gray veil that can make them appear pale and dirty. B+W Polarizing Filters can remove this polarized veil and thus increase the saturation of the true color. Because the blue light from the sky, especially at an angle approximately perpendicular to the sun is strongly polarized, a polarizing filter can be usedto render the sky with a more saturated color, so that white clouds will standout more dramatically. Using a polarizer for black-and-white film, reflections can be accentuated or reduced, and can have higher image contrast.
