The Manfrotto MFESSCPL-77 77mm Essential Circular Polarizing Filter improves the overall image quality in a couple of ways. Firstly it increases color contrast and saturation, for instance, it increases the contrast of blue skies. Secondly, it reduces reflections that are often seen when photographing water, glass and similar reflective surfaces. Manfrotto Essential Circular Polarizing filter ensures uniform light distribution; therefore maintains the sharpness and color balance in images. The Essential CPL filter is water repellent, includes 2 layers of coating and allows 68% light transmission.Multi Coating
Manfrotto filters have been developed with the highest level of precision. The elaborate multi-coating process effectively minimizes reflections and maximizes the light transmission, hence delivering remarkable optical quality. The anti-reflectiveness of filters increases in parallel to the increase in the number of layers of coating. Additionally, as a result of the multi-coated layers, Manfrotto filters ensure a superior level of protection against dust, moisture and scratches.
