Control Reflections and Dial in the Right Amount of Contrast for your Scene using this Tokina Filter!
The Tokina Cinema Formatt Hitech 138mm Circular Polarizer Filter is made from two layers of high-quality optical enhancers. The first layer is a standard high-efficiency linear polarization foil that will create the usual desirable blue sky and reflection-cutting effects that polarizers are known for in cinematography. The second layer is a 1/4 Wave Retarder which spins the light in a corkscrew-type pattern to avoid cross polarization on cameras that have 3 CCD design, employ a video tap, or have internal variable ND type effects. This filter is available in two types: circular and linear made from high-quality Schott glass and manufactured with precision bonding and polishing techniques. It has little noticeable optical downside versus a Linear Polarizer and therefore is recommended for most modern cinematography applications.
The filter is made from high-efficiency polarization foil that creates blue skies, cuts reflections on windows and water, and is considered one of the best optical effects for outdoor cinematography. The high-efficiency nature of this polarizer allows for a significant increase in usability in challenging lighting conditions over other polarizers on the market. It is made from Schott B270 optical glass and polished for maximum image quality when used with a matte box.
