Thumbs Up EP-SQ. Amazon. B+W 40.5mm Circular Polarizer MRC Filter 66-1069184 B&H Photo. The B+W 40.5mm Circular Polarizer MRC Filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface.

The light from the sun naturally becomes partially polarized due to reflecting off electrons in air molecules, causing the light to scatter into what appears as haze. A polarizing filter arranges, and filters, this directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of this light. This results in a noticeable reduction of glare and reflections from non-metallic surfaces and an increase in the saturation of skies and foliage. A circular polarizer only differs from a linear polarizer in that it contains a quarter wave plane in addition to the linear polarizing filter. The addition of this quarter wave plane is to circularly polarize the linearly polarized light for the use of auto focus and exposure functions. B+W 40.5mm UV/IR Cut 486M MRC Filter 66-036722 B&H Photo Video. The B+W 40.5mm UV/IR Cut 486M MRC Filter is an interference filter designed to reflect and break up wavelengths on both sides of the visible spectrum (infrared and ultraviolet) in order to gain a more pure transmittance of the visible spectrum.

The filter is completely colorless and is comprised of thin layers with varying thicknesses, similar to a multi-coating. By utilizing this method of construction, unwanted UV and IR radiation is not absorbed but rather repeatedly reflected in order to affect and skew the wavelengths in order to provide a steep cutoff between spectrums. This filter is mainly used with digital and video cameras with a CCD sensor without an internal IR protection filter. A CCD sensor is especially prone to infrared radiation that can result in color shifts and un-sharpness.

These effects are due to chromatic aberrations from lenses which are only corrected for visible light that offer no protection to non-visible wavelengths. Unlock 16-bit RAW files for M8. I used to do these tests.

Unlock 16-bit RAW files for M8

To answer Jaap's question, let's use the best card as recommended by Leica at the time the M8 was current. My M8 has an 8 GB SanDisk Ultra, rated at 15 MB/sec, half full. (The SanDisk Extreme cards, although rated faster, ran slower on the M8.) It is set for normal use, discreet advance and auto ISO enabled. M8raw2dng – Tool to convert Leica M8 RAW files to DNG.
