Our entry-level Circular Polarizing Filter cuts reflected (polarized) light to increase contrast and boosts colour saturation and vibrancy.

DESCRIPTION

Cut reflections, boost colour saturation and increase contrast by cutting out reflected polarized light.

Polarized light can wash out images with silvery reflected light and our Polarizing Filter cuts out 99.9% of reflected light from water, glass, and non-metallic surfaces, uncovering bolder colours.

Rotate our Polarizing Filter to improve colour saturation, contrast, and remove reflections. At full polarization, our CPL creates a 1.33 f-stop light reduction.

All our circular filters come with a protective travel tin case, a recycled cleaning cloth, and recycled plastic-free packaging.

How to Use

CPL Polarizing Filter 1Peak

1/4

Find your filter size

Search your lens and find the diameter symbol Ø followed by a number (e.g. Ø58 or Ø58mm). This can be found on the front or side of your lens – this magic number is your filter size. Note: Your lens focal length (e.g. 18-55mm) is not your filter size.

2/4

Place flat and screw clockwise

Graciously behold lens in one hand and place flat on lens. Gently screw clockwise until just firm. Do not over-tighten – that which goes on must one day come off.

Twist until you see it

Tenderly rotate the outer rim of your CPL Filter and watch as the level of polarization changes.

For best results

You’ll need to adjust your exposure setting for a 1.33 f-stop light reduction. For best results, use your CPL with landscapes, streetscapes, around water, windows, snow, clouds and ensure the sun is at 90 degrees to your lens filter.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which range of CPL should I buy?

Let the quality of your lens guide your choice. Or simply go for the best – our 3Peak professional range.

Gobe has three different ranges of filters: 1Peak (Entry-level), 2Peak (Mid-tier), and 3Peak (Professional). When deciding which range is right for you, the most important consideration is the lenses you’ll be using them on. Let the quality of your lens guide your decision because an entry-level lens filter on a professional lens may affect image quality. Our 3Peak professional range is made with German SCHOTT optical glass – considered the best optical glass in the world.

If you are still unsure which range is best for you, read our Beginner's Guide to Lens Filters and Lens Adapters.

How do I get the most out of my CPL?

Use the 90-degree rule, then back it off a bit.

To achieve the strongest polarization possible, the reflected light source needs to be at 90-degrees to your CPL. To check this, make an L-shape using your thumb and index finger. Point your thumb at the lens and wherever your index finger is pointed, that is the angle that will achieve maximum polarisation. Sometimes at full polarization, the effect can look unrealistic so we suggest you back it off a bit for a slightly softer polarization.

Can I use your CPL with wide-angle and telephoto lenses?

Yes, absolutely. We recommend our 3Peak range for telephoto lenses.

Make sure you have the right size filter and you’re all set. All our filters are designed with a super slim rim to minimise any vignetting that can occur with wide-angle lenses. Because of the amount of glass in a telephoto lens, opting for our 3Peak CPL filter will provide the best possible image quality.

What's the difference between circular and linear polarzing filters?

A circular polarizer blocks reflected light from any angle while a linear polarizer only blocks reflected light from one direction.

A CPL offers more versatility and works better with digital cameras. Both linear and circular polarizers look the same, and they both do the same thing – reduce reflections on non-metallic surfaces such as water, glass and wet surfaces, and they increase colour saturation too. A CPL filter is essentially a linear polariser with an extra glass element that allows you to adjust your lens filter to block polarised light from different directions.

How do I clean my CPL filter?

Use a premium, chemical-free glass cleaning solution, and a microfibre cleaning cloth.

Our Cleaning Kit has everything you need to keep your filters cleaner for longer. Start by blowing and then brushing away the offending debris. If that works, you’re good to go. Avoid using the cleaning cloth and lens solution if it’s not necessary. If required, consciously spritz your cloth with a chemical-free cleaning solution (check that it can be used with coated glass – ours can) and, using circular motions, start wiping from the centre of the filter outwards. Read our full cleaning guide here.
