Filter Circular Polarizing

Filter Circular Polarizing
polarizing filter questions?

1. what’s the difference between a polarizing filter and a Circular Polarizing Filter? or are they the same?

2. does a polarizing filter force you to shoot at slower shutter speeds? if so, by how many stops?

3. i read somewhere that for the canon 10mm-22mm ef lens, a thinner polarizing filter would be better to avoid vignetting. how thin/thick are polarizing filters, usually?

it’s a lot of questions, so thanks so much in advance to you answerers! 🙂

1. Circular and linear polarising filters differ in that a linear filter could interfere with autofocus. There’s no real difference in terms of what they add to the photo.

2. Polarising filters do remove some light, but not too much – maybe 2 stops.

3. The thickness issue isn’t with the filter glass, but with the mount (the metal ring that holds the glass and screws onto the lens). Because the view angle is so wide at 10mm it’s possible to actually get the filter mount itself into the picture unless it’s a special shallow one designed for very wide angle lenses (or a Cokin square filter that is a lot bigger than necessary).
