World's Largest Drop-In Filter Selection

Performance:

Light Transmission

 

X4 CPL vs. Canon, Singh-Ray, Nikon, Sony, Pentax, Rodenstock and B+W.

The X4 CPL features the highest light transmission performance, even when compared to “High Transmission” polarizers by B+W and Tiffen.

Higher light transmission allows more light to pass through to the sensor which translates into faster shutter speeds, sharper images and the ability to use a lower ISO when shooting video.

 

The Canon Drop-In CPL features an impressive average light transmission of 43.06%, which outperforms every filter manufacturer, except for the X4 CPL.

X4 CPL average light transmission is 50.64%, which moderately outperforms the Canon Drop-In CPL.

X2 CPL average light transmission is 42.44%, slightly less than the Canon Drop-In CPL, while outperforming every leading CPL manufacturer.

 

 

Performance:

Color Cast

X4 CPL vs. Canon Drop-In CPL

X4 CPL is the most color neutral CPL, and features the lowest color cast of any CPL on the market.

The Canon Drop-In CPL has a very neutral color cast compared to industry leading manufacturers of both drop-in and circular CPLs.

In fact, compared to industry leading manufacturers, the Canon Drop-In CPL has an impressively flat transmission profile.

The X4 CPL moderately outperforms the Canon Drop-In CPL in color cast, maintaining both a slightly more neutral performance with higher overall light transmission.

 

 

Performance:

Neutral Density

Canon does not currently offer solid ND drop-in filters, however, the X4 ND performance exceeds industry leading manufacturers such as Singh-Ray and B+W and Lee.

The X4 ND has the most neutral color transmission throughout the visible range and well into infrared.

Variable NDs

World's Largest Density Range

 
 
The Breakthrough VND-R has the highest density range of any VND on the market – 2 to 11-stops – without the dreaded X pattern.
 
The effective density range of the Dark VND-R is 10 to 16-stops, with one stop of overlap between VNDs.
 
Previously filter makers would make numerous VND filters with small density ranges in attempt to limit the negative consequences of cross-polarization.

INFRARED 720nm

 

Digital cameras feature a permanent IR-cut filter covering the image sensor, however shooting with an IR filter allows for residual IR light to reach the sensor showing an otherworldly scene which is otherwise invisible to the human eye.


Black & White Polarizers

 

In Black & White photography a circular polarizer is often stacked with colored filters in order to polarize colored light. However with the all-new Black & White Polarizers the photographer is able to achieve the same result with a single filter. Yellow, Red, Orange and Green B&W Polarizers can be purchased individually or bought as a set, and are immediately available for pre-order.

 

 

RED

Turns a blue sky almost black and make clouds really stand out, giving the scene a dramatic feel.

They're also excellent for increasing visibility in haze and fog.

ORANGE

Use to bring out white clouds against a blue sky, or to darken a clear blue sky.

Do not use on completely overcast or dull days. Leave camera set on Normal.

YELLOW

Produces dramatic dark-sky effects without objectionably darkening the green of foreground foliage.

It is very good for water scenes, views through windows and studio work.

GREEN

Mainly used for photographing plants as it helps separate the green foliage from the brightly-coloured flowers and buds.

Boosts the appearance of grass and trees, but they also lighten the sky, be careful not to lose detail there.
