    This review is from: Sony Alpha Circular PL Filter for DSLR Lens Diameter 49mm (Electronics)
    There are thousands of polarizing filters available in all the usual places, costing from a few to hundreds of dollars. Polarizing filters are unique in that they are mechanical devices with moving parts, very thin little rings that rotate. Cheap ones actually fall apart, don’t rotate smoothly or get stuck on the lens and won’t come off. They are also often thick and intrude in the image when used on wide angle lenses.

    More complex is the issue of coatings. Note that even respected brands like Hoya have at least three price ranges based on the extent of the coating. The cheap ones from China, offered by various marketeers, often say they are coated, or multi-coated. Just be advised that this is an expensive process using exotic materials applied by some mighty expensive high-tech equipment and requires vigorous quality control. If the filter is cheap, none of this is happening. Duck fat could be a coating, if you get my drift.

    Since this is going on an expensive Sony system, I though that having “Sony” on it meant that this industrial high-tech giant likely was doing the right thing. Not seen in the illustration, the other side of the filter says “Carl Zeiss T*” which refers to their branded coating system. It also says “Made in Japan”…

    So, this is a quality device, smooth and clearly well-made, with quality coatings backed by Zeiss and Sony. If you want something good and reliable, this is a good choice. Just starting out as a student maybe, you could try a cheaper brand just to get an idea of how it works on a system you probably aren’t going to keep forever. I tend to keep my cameras for at least five years.

    For those who haven’t used a polarizer, it is something you very well may get addicted to. Heck, I even wear polarized sun glasses. I like that view of the world. The advertisements usually point to how they remove glare. Yes, you can see through reflections on glass and see underwater to a point, but generally I like the the saturating effect on color. Blue sky, contrasting white clouds, golden fields, green trees, etc. It makes you photos more as you see the world, not the neutral look cameras often are programmed to present.

    All this depends on the angle of the sun, the angle of the lens to the sun, the subject and what you want. You rotate the filter around and you will see the effect you want. Of course this is easier with a camera with a view through the lens, but you can also simply sight through the filter, rotate it as you like and then hold it in front of a P&S camera. It will automatically focus and set the exposure.

    You do lose a little light, the coatings make a difference in this regard, but this isn’t usually a problem with digital cameras.

    The Sony is quite “powerful”, has a strong polarizing effect. Some I have used, even good ones, are less effective.

    Also, this is a “circular” polarizer and so works with digital cameras. Beware of used ones that may have been used on film cameras and are of the old “linear” design. Just buy circular.

    In any case, there are other good filter brands and hundreds of iffy ones. There are a couple of PLs that feature glass and coatings that supposedly repel fingerprints and make them very easy to clean, but then you are paying considerably more. This I think is a good choice for many people.

    Superb Circular Polarizing Filter for Sony 49mm Lenses, December 17, 2012
    By 

    This review is from: Sony Alpha Circular PL Filter for DSLR Lens Diameter 49mm (Electronics)
    This Sony circular polarizing filter is designed to fit Sony 72mm lenses, such as the Sony SAL30M28 30mm f/2.8 Lens for Alpha Digital SLR Cameras and the Sony 50mm f/1.8 SAM DT Lens for Sony Alpha Digital SLR Cameras (both part of the excellent “plastic fantastic” series of lenses). The filter is constructed with high quality glass with the T* Carl Zeiss coating, and finished in Black anodized aluminum. A snap closure plastic case with internal padding is provided. The filter is made in Japan.

    Although I own the 62mm version of this circular polarizer, the two are identical, other than the diameter. My own lens on which I use this filter is actually a Zeiss (Sony SAL-1680Z 16-80mm f/3.5-4.5 Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T DT Zoom Lens for Sony Alpha Digital SLR Camera), but I nevertheless have use for this circular polarizer at times. A circular polarizing filter can greatly reduce reflective light (such as reflections from water and glass), and can also improve color depth and contrast. Like all circular polarizers, you have to practice with how to orient the filter for a given shot (the filter can be rotated while in place to permit the correct adjustment when correcting for glare, but the results can be significant.

    This type of filter is a great asset to have when shooting in difficult conditions, including extreme sunlight. You can purchase much less expensive filters, but they won’t always be as thin as the better ones, and can introduce some unwanted effects, depending on the specific type lens being used. This one is an easy five star recommendation, with the caveat that it is indeed quite expensive. However, the quality is evident as soon as you start using it.

    Also …

    … if all you only need is standard UV protection (no polarizing effect), try the excellent Hoya Pro One filters, for example:
