Irix Edge
Circular Polariser

The circular polariser filter is a filter that passes light rays to the sensor in the camera only at a specific angle, so we’re able to compensate for unwanted light reflections that could appear on the surface of that lake, car, or even the leaves which we’re trying to capture, thereby increasing their saturation and achieving more saturated foliage colours.

Technical information

The Irix Edge Circular Polarizer

Enhance the colors – reduce the glare

The Irix Edge Circular Polarizer is a type of filter that every photographer should have because it allows to achieve in-camera effects that are hard or impossible to achieve in post-production such as removing glare, improve contrast and saturation  and increasing transparency of glass or water.

The filter is available in sizes of 52, 55, 58, 62, 67, 72, 77, 82 and 95mm.

 Amazing effects – before pressing the shutter button

The Irix Edge Circular Polarizer Filter shuts out most of the reflections on shiny objects such as water, glass or metal, thus achieving a number of benefits:

The Circular Polarizer Filter makes water more
transparent with improved contrast and saturation.
Landscape pictures will become more eye-catching.

 

 

 

 

 

Metal & Glass

A circular polarizer makes glass more transparent which allows you to shoot through glass without any glare or reflections. The Irix Edge Circular Polarizer Filter shuts out most of the reflections, thus achieving a natural structure and colour of the subject.

Foliage

Almost all of the trees, flowers, grass, etc. have shiny surfaces which reflect some of the light. The Circular Polarizer filter shuts out all of these reflections and so increasing colour saturation and clarity of the foliage

 

 

 

Improve the colour of the sky

Hint: The strongest effect can be achieved when the angle between ph pictured scene and sun is more less 90 degrees. (The sun ‘should be’ on our left or right shoulder).

The Irix Edge Circular Polarizer Filter allows us to achieve a deep blue colour of the sky and improve cloud contrast, which gives the appearance of a more three-dimensional structure of the clouds.

Adjust the effects of polarization

The effect of polarization is adjustable; By simple rotation of the filter you can achieve desired effect. The Irix Edge Circular Polarizer Filter is made of two smooth and easy rotating rings.

 

Top optical quality

The Irix Edge filters has been developed based on the highest quality optical glass which guarantees high light transmission.

 

A multilayer anti-reflective coating has been applied to minimize the risk of unwanted reflections has been applied on both surfaces of the filter.

 

The filter also has a NANO coating with hydro and oil-repellent characteristics. This means that dirt does not adhere to its surface and so maintenance of the filter’s surface is easy. 

 

The filter frame is made of lightweight and durable aluminium. Its surface has been covered with a black coating. This special finish minimizes the risk of flare, while being resistant to damage and scratches.

 

Each of Irix Edge filters is packed in an aesthetic and functional case that provides adequate protection both during storage and transportation.

Pure technology just for you

The Irix Edge Circular Polariser (CPL) filter is extremely useful for landscape and architectural photography by reducing reflections from non-metallic surfaces, emphasising detail and increasing the colour density of the pictures. The glass surfaces of the Irix polariser are covered by a multi-coated anti-reflection layer that keeps the image clear and full of natural colours. The additional waterproof and oil repellent coating protects them from stains and fingerprints and also enables their use in extreme weather conditions.
