View Full Version : Circular Polarizer on X100
Anyone using a CP on their X100?
I have been editing a stack of images that were shot using a CP on a OM Zuiko f2/21 adapted on a 5Dii.
Very impressive results. I'm thinking the f2/23mm on the x100 must give a similar although cropped look.
I have an x100 waiting at home when I get there. Just imagining the possibilities with fall colors in the area and blue skies forecast this week.
Any photos would be great.
No one person has tried this?
I'll get one and report back here later.
I used one while on vacation up in Rocky Mtn. Nat'l Park last month and it worked great. I would switch from OVF to EVF, and then adjust the filter to the desired effect. The images really look nice. Don't have any here at work, will try to post some tonight.
I've used a linear polarizer. Got great results too. I don't think you need circular polarizers (typically more expensive) for mirrorless cameras like the X100.
Here's a couple reduced resolution shots taken with a circular polarizer from Rocky Mtn Nat'l Park. They were shot as JPEGs (not RAW) using the hyperfocal distance in the manual focus mode. Using this method I guess I could have gotten away with using a linear polarizing but I already had this one from another camera. It was a simple matter to remove the lens shade, adjust the filter while using the EVF and then replace the shade.
I've used one. You need to switch to EVF of course. But then if you rotate the filter the VF will be adjusted too in brightness. So you really don;t see the effect that well but it does work.
