Choosing the right polarizer for XH A1
on Sep 18, 2008 at 11:45:58 pm

I'm hunting for a good polarizing filter for the XH A1. I've come across "linear" and "circular" polarizers. Which one is appropriate for the XH A1?

Any experiences or advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Dan

My understanding is you need a circular polarizer for any auto focus lens, so circular is the right choice.

Canon sells a good 3-piece filter set, polarizer, skylight, and ND filter. The price may seem a tad high, and I can't verify that it is exactly worth the money valuewise, but remember it doesn't make sense to put a cheap filter in front of a great lens.

The filter quality needs to be as good or better than the lens to preserve the lens' capabilities, including both the glass and the coatings.

I learned decades ago in still photography, don't go cheap on filters.
