Can I use a CPL filter with a UV filter?

Yes, you can use the CPL over the UV filter, and the CPL will still do its job. However, if you use the CPL, I would remove the UV filter first.

Can I leave CPL filter all the time?

You can leave them on the whole time but on average you will lose 1 stop (half) of light entering the camera. Also note that a CPL always changes an image because it doesn’t remove light equally across the whole image, it removes light selectively based on polarization.

Can you use a CPL filter at night?

A CPL filter will only serve to reduce light to your lens when shooting at night, which is the last thing you’ll want as you’re likely using a slow shutter speed given it’s already pitch black. Leave your CPL filter off your lens in this scenario.

Do I have to rotate CPL filter?

You should always rotate the CPL filter 360 degrees and check the level of contrast, saturation, and reflection it is boosting or reducing, and then only decide the degree at which you want to use the filter.

Can I use CPL filter for portraits?

How can I tell if sunglasses are UV protected?

Most sunglasses today have UV protection embedded in the lens rather than coated over it, and most reputable brands list UV protection on their label. Look for a label that says “100% protection against both UVA and UVB” or “100% protection against UV 400.”

Is UV protection on glasses worth it?

In most cases, yes. Choose sunglasses that offer 100% UV protection and they will also absorb most of the harmful blue light, also known as HEV rays. Adding a UV coating to your eyeglasses may suffice to filter out harmful blue light as well.

What is a CPL filter good for?

A CPL filter – which stands for circular polarizer/linear – is a glass attachment that can reduce the glare from reflected surfaces. How does it help? Polarized light comes from light that has been reflected off of something.

Is a CPL filter the same as a polarizing filter?

Whether you choose a CPL filter or a linear polarizer is largely down to the type of camera you own. In general, CPL filters are more versatile than linear types. CPL filters are suitable for all digital cameras, but a linear polarizer won’t work on DSLR cameras.
