Blunty reviews the brand new MagFilter CPL Filter from CarrySpeed.com
Circular Polariser filters are a near indispensable filter accessory for photographers. It’s one of the lens filters that simply cannot be replaced with a digital filter in photoshop, aperture, light-room or any other photo editor… Without the REAL filter, your camera just doesn’t capture the information in the glare at all, so there’s nothing to recover in post-processing, it’s GONE!
The MagFilter CPL is new, and it’s the solution for using polarising filters on compact cameras without filter threads on their lenses.
The 36mm Polarizer MagFilter works with smaller compact cameras like the Olympus XZ-1, Canon S95 & S100, & the 42mm CPL Magfilter for cameras like the Sony HX9V, Sony HX20V, Sony HX30V & the new and already much gushed about Sony RX100.
NEW MagFilter CPL (Circular Polarizer) Filter
“With the advent of Digital photography, filters are not often used. The look of many different lens filters can be easily duplicated through image editing software, however there is one filter that Digital Photo or Digital Video has not been able to replace: The Polarizer.
High end compact cameras like the Sony RX100 or Canon S100 (above) with built in telescoping lenses can capture amazing quality images, but they could still benefit greatly from the use of filters such as Polarizers or Neutral Density Filters. Unfortunately, there has never been a simple, clean, and effective solution to mounting filters on these high end compact cameras – until now.
The revolutionary Carry Speed MagFilters provide the most innovative and unobtrusive filter solution to high end compact cameras. A very thin metal ring is first adhered to the front of the camera lens and still allows the lens to expand and retract back into the camera body.
The Carry Speed MagFilters quickly connect to the metal ring with strong magnets embedded in the MagFilter body. A grooved bevel design prevents slippage and ensures a secure bond to lock the MagFilter in place. “
